We’ve heard that Project Scorpio, Microsoft’s next big Xbox console, will be the most powerful ever with 6 TFLOPS of computing power. Xbox head of marketing Aaron Greenberg revealed some interesting details on how Microsoft plans to tackle gaming in 4K.

Speaking to GameTransfers, Greenberg said during the Xbox FanFest in Mexico City that, “This will really bring the most powerful console you’ve ever seen. It will bring these really true 4K, really incredible visual games that we’ve never seen before on the console.

“People who have spent thousands of dollars on a high-end PC are getting that experience. How do we bring that to scale in a console in your living room? That’s a big part of what Project Scorpio is about.”

It also seems that all first party titles from Microsoft will run in native 4K on the console. “Any games we’re making that we’re launching in the Scorpio time frame, we’re making sure they can natively render at 4K.”

Project Scorpio is currently slated to release in Holiday 2017.

    yup pretty much, the Pro can have the advantage and kill the streak the Xbox One S has, but next year its gonna be all about Scorpio and the Pro will look soo underpowered its going to be just silly.

    • LifeOnMars

      Not quite as silly as the Xbox One has been for the last 3 years.

    • jp

      pretty good games as far as I know, pretty good controller and the Elite? maan, I get it three years ago maybe it was different but let me tell you, one year back to now and Xbox One is looking pretty strong, I like it (:

      Salt……lol

      always!

      I don’t care how many console MS or Sony sell, you know that’s for them and its good of course that the console sells well, I think is good that the PS4 is selling more and how MS is trying to correct that is only benefitial for me, they have been giving good games, they gave games at E3 (Tekken tag tournament and LIMBO freaking awesome game), so really its not that I don’t want to see MS sell more I just like the way it is for me right now, I get better services and more games for less, also I cant go back to playing with a regular controller now that I have an Elite, I will get a PS4 eventually when God Of War and all the other games they promised come out, until then im happy with my Xbox planning on getting an S and next year a Scorpio, after all MS does care for the market were I live in Sony doesn’t even have the man power to do so another point for Xbox.

    • Mark

      That’ll be interesting. If the Scorpio’s price is $400 beans at launch, it could possibly 2-1 the Pro. I’m betting it won’t, but it’s possible.

    • Mr Xrat

      It’ll be all about the no exclusives and broken promises in a year.

  • Starman

    You’ll still posting this crap to start flame wars…. We know what the scorpio is gonna be.
    Your post are redundant , please spare us the fanboy flame wars ….
    PS: You know the Sony girls can’t take hearing the truth.

    • LifeOnMars

      I have nothing against Xbox I have owned Xbox and Xbox 360 ( 2 failed within the waranty period and replaced ,1 failed out of waranty sold as spares. one sold to get the ps4)
      If the Scorpio is less than £349 not built like a 1970’s VCR, relible with plenty of games and as powerful as promised with no sign of PS5 then maybe I will buy the Scorpio.

      And what is wrong with girls playing video games ?

    • Riggybro

      Starman is 8 years old so believes girls have cooties.

    • Mark

      Lmao

    • Mark

      Nothing wrong. He’s jokingly calling the males who are PS4 owners, girls. Lol. He’s insinuating they act like emotional females.

  • Reclaimer13

    At 6tflops the scorpio should be able to run everything at 1080p/60fps ultra easily. I hope that’ll be an option.

    • Mark

      YES!!! Although I do think that if it runs games at 1080p/30, the games will look even more unbelievable.

  • efnet

    Cant wait….the ps4 pro is not wowing me at all.

  • Eliezer Barreto

    lets see what settings they bring lol. low medium high? at 4k or the same assets on the xbox one

    • Mark

      Will probably be the same settings as Xbox One, but with sharper 4K textures, that’s a big deal bro. And it’s strange cuz I don’t see you on here ever being critical of the Pro’s settings or assets, and its games aren’t even native 4K…hmmm.

    DOOM Lead Programmer: 4K Gaming On Xbox Scorpio Is A “Waste of Resources”

    Using the 6TFLOPS of computing power within the Xbox Scorpio for 4k gaming is a waste of resources says DOOM’s lead renderer programmer. The available power should better be used for higher fidelity 1080p gaming.

    • Luke Skywalker

      developers are free to use the hardware however they see fit. they are not mandated to make their games 4k

    • Paul

      4k is a waste of resources on both the newer consoles, they need to stop trying to run before they can walk and should’ve focused on 1080p 60fps before 4k, as it is, the PS4 Pro could have problems because the cpu might be a bit too weak to do 60fps with most games at 1080p, Scorpio on the other hand could offer native 4k 30 or 1080p 60fps for most games.

    • Luke Skywalker

      again developers are free to use the power how they want to. I don’t think we should fall into the category of trying to mandate how they should build and present their games. I think it’s absurd to say developers should stick to 1080p@60 when they can give different options in resolution and frame rates. not everyone wants to play 60fps, some people have 4k tvs so plain 1080p just doesn’t cut it anymore. you know, different strokes and folks and all that.

    • Mark

      Yessir. Why people hate OPTIONS confuses me…

    • Paul

      I would prefer if they didn’t mandate how the consoles are used but developers will likely always push visuals over frames, more so when the PC starts to pull away, also pressure will likely demand it, games at 30fps can look much better than games at 60fps, thats the real problem with a fixed platform, you only have so much resources, gamers are demanding better visuals with newer games, lowering the fps is the easy solution.

      If all the games give the options of 4k or 1080p 60fps then that would be good but the truth is for most games it’s 1080p or 1440p using checkerboard, not exactly 4k that I had in mind, it would be like getting a DVD, the tv is using all sorts of upscaling tricks to improve the image and yes it does look better but compared to a bluray, it’s not even close, at least on the right screen, I think I’ll wait for true native 4k before jumping on that bandwagon.

    • kma99

      So you were over on the wfftech site with your main alt and you failed to see that the guy tweeted thwt in july? Funny how tht site didnt pick up on that but you are here quoting it like its the gospel.

    • Mark

      So it’s a good thing then that Phil Spencer said devs can use Scorpio’s power how THEY SEE FIT…….right?

  • Hvd

    if 3rd party wont even try to do 4k its not worth it imo.im a xbox guy and ill be keeping my xbox one until the xbox two is out..i dont believe in mid gen upgrades.

    im not going to pay $400 just for the few 1st party games in 4k then the xbox two will come out.

    • Mark

      Nah, Phil already said they’re getting many developers on board for Scorpio support, since last E3. Won’t be the same as the Pro’s situation..

  • Mr Xrat

    Slugberg the disgusting rat repeating what we’ve known for months to the last remaining dumb Xgimps. The fact he thinks it’s impressive when Xbone games already look awful and Spencer is already downplaying 4K is hilarious.

    • Cenk Algu

      Sad troll. Ohh your fake accounts strike again haha

    • Mr Xrat

      Tell us about DX12 again, munchkin.

    • Cenk Algu

      Gladly. FH3 and Gears 4 are by far the best looking games with DX12:)

    • Mr Xrat

      Games with 2007 textures, 2014 lighting, awful draw distance and appalling environment design. Raise those standards, munchkin. 🙂

    • Cenk Algu

      Ohhh yeahh salty Rat yeahhh. İ guess you need another 10 accounts haha
