Xbox Scorpio Website No Longer Mentions VR At All

Could Microsoft be moving away from a VR focus with the Scorpio?

When the Xbox One Scorpio was announced last year, Microsoft made it a point to call out the two areas that the new system would be focusing on- delivering true, native 4K gaming, and high fidelity VR gaming, both of which are beyond the reach of all other consoles on the market.

Now, it seems like Microsoft may be trying to shift attention away from the system’s VR capabilities, presuming it has any. As was pointed out on NeoGAF (via GameSpot), the Xbox Scorpio website has removed any and all references to VR. As to why Microsoft is doing that, no one knows. It is entirely possible that their VR solution is not ready to go. On the other hand, maybe the large scale market failure of VR so far might have made them rethink their idea of focusing marketing of the Scorpio around this functionality.

Whatever the case, we have more new questions about the Scorpio every day- Microsoft really need to hurry up and answer some of these, before we all go crazy with the speculation.

    polaris and vega chips have extra stuff built in them to help out with VR like multi rate shading so it will be in there just maybe they dont want to focus on it. |They should just be able to plug in a rift or vive and be ready to go plus there supposed to be developing cheaper VR alternatives to those products with hardware vendors.

      its a core gpu feature fool. would be stupid to take it out plus it can also help out in game rendering to. like nvidias multi res shading which is a feature they were tooting for VR can also be used in games and theres a game that actually uses it where section all around the edges of the screen i think runs at 30% less resolution while the middle runs at full resolution or something and gains about 20% more performance.

      Now, now Sheldon. Please don’t go getting any of that blind faith nerd-gasm juice on the rest of us non believers. Call Uber when you need a ride back to reality from your vacation in sucker-ville.

      hahaha your just scared about scorpios power cus youll no longer be able to claim sony has the most powerful system

    • crazy_black_man-

      I never claimed they had the most powerful system in the first damn place. The power is all in the games son. Get your message straight. If you ain’t got all the good games to play, then you ain’t got nothing, and as it stands right now, Scorpio ain’t got no good games. Sony has it all over MS when it comes to games, console performance, and market penetration. Xbox Scorpio is gonna need a parachute to keep from falling flat on its face.

    So in other words, the coming revolution of console VR gaming that began with triple A games like Resident Evil Biohazard, will begin and end with Sony being the sole innovators in the 8th gen of console gaming. MS this gen has been nothing but false promises, false advertising, cancellations, and disappointments. I can’t wait to hear what worthless vague nonsense that the head of Xbox will tweet next.
