The Xbox Scorpio may live up to its ‘beast’ billing by Microsoft, if all of these insider reports turn out to be true. According to shinobi, who is a well known and well placed industry insider, the Scorpio may become the go to destination for multiplatform games, owing to its power making them superior to all other console versions on the market.

“Phew, really excited to read up in detail on the Scorpio tomorrow”, Shinobi tweeted. “With what I’m hearing, I’ll certainly be getting multiplats on it,” he said, before adding that “It’s made to benefit XB1 level games. Sounds like it’ll run most games at native 4K no problem w/ room to spare for other visual [improvements].” In turn, what this means is that Scorpio will probably have far more enhancements over Xbox One games than the PS4 Pro sees over the existing PS4.

But we’ll have the hard facts tomorrow morning, when Digital Foundry takes the wraps off of the Scorpio at last. Stay tuned to GamingBolt, we will keep you updated on all the latest and greatest.

    You mean legitimate step over every existing console period….

    I’m glad Microsoft is stepping their game up ,so hopefully it will make Sony step it up even further with the PS5 spec wise.

    With that being said, I’ll just wait for PS5 and keep playing on the Pro. I just like PlayStation games better as there’s a huge variety of quality games to pick from……..but i do miss that Xbox Controller especially for shooters.

    • crazy_black_man-

      Nuff said!

      Ultimately, its still just another more expensive Xbox branded console which = more Xbox money just for more new Xbox problems. They’re quality control aint all that.

      Lmao….”bang bang bang bang.” Eh Blacky, would u ever consider copping a Scorpio if it’s indeed hitting some sick settings targets, say for 400 or 450 beans?

    • crazy_black_man-

      Nope. Not even then. I am the head of a California Playstation console family. No Xbox. No Nintendo. Not a fan of the poor quality, and poorly designed Xbox hardware, or its minimal weak library of games, and Nintendo makes kids games.

    • Mark

      “Nintendo makes kids games”. Ahaha, true!

    • C. Hoffer

      While I like my PS4’s, I will get a Scorpio but I absolutely think M$ units and products have zero quality control.
      Just in my world alone (which is arguably a small sample):
      – 4 people buy Elite Controllers ($$) – all of them fail in under 3 months (myself included)
      – 4 people buy One S ($$$) – 3 of them have failures in under 3 months. Heck, mine was broken upon starting it up. Sounded like the fan was grinding metal inside it.

      Considering the # of people in my sample, statistically there should have been Zero people with issues instead of almost 100% of people with them.

      LoI pony melt down.

    • Mark

      Well said bro. PS5 is gonna be flat out sick, what withnot all the new AMD GPU, CPU and memory advancements they’ve been workin on…..in the meantime, I’ll be on that Scorpio. Can’t wait for this thing

    • crazy_black_man-

      PS5 will continue the legacy of domination over the console space.

    • Mark

      That means nothing to me. All that matters is: the controller, UI, console exclusives, network etc. U can have at that corporate cheerlearding all u want ahaha

    • ETERNAL LORD

      exactly and btw PS4 controller still the best controller only if its Analogue Sticks are asymmetric(its Analogues are much smoother) i hope the new modified Scorpio’s controller Sticks be smooth this time!!

    • Mark

      I hear u

    • Old Skool

      Agreed, as long as you enjoy and believe you got your money’s worth, is all that matters.
      Console, or platform wars are for pathetic insecure attention wh*res trying to hard to prove a point.

    • greatnessIsaLIE

      You never know anything can happen. Look at the ps3. It came right after the best Playstation of all time the ps2. The ps3 should’ve sold like hot cakes but in stead it got whooped by the xbox….THE XBOX!!!! For crying out loud.
      So remember this could be ps best console ever but that doesn’t mean that the ps5 can’t be another ps3 type failure. Only time will tell.

    • Holeybartender

      You can thank the rise of first-person shooters for the 360’s early success but take comfort in the fact that when all was said and done the PS3 outsold Xbox in the end.

    • C. Hoffer

      https://www.statista.com/statistics/268966/total-number-of-game-consoles-sold-worldwide-by-console-type/
      Link is a bit old (last year) and the PS4 has been moving up fast.
      Points to note:
      – Wii U is garbage vs original Wii
      – PS 2 & Nintendo DS reign supreme
      – PS3 didn’t overtake xbox360 in sales (by a tiny bit) until just before the One was landing on the market. (not shown in chart)

      Overall the console of choice was PS2, 360, PS4. Scorpio isn’t out yet so I can’t say how it will do. M$ has a lot of catching up to do on software.

    • greatnessIsaLIE

      It’s didn’t officially surpass the xb360 until mid 2014 almost 2 years after the Gen was over. The ps3 lost the console war plain and simple.

    • Michael

      Legacy of “dumbination”…lol.

    • jp

      I have heard this 1000 times already…

    • Old Skool

      You’ll hear it again……

  • LifeOnMars

    If it’s less than £330 and has some killer IPs I may give it a go, otherwise I will be happy to wait over 2 years for PS5

    • Mark

      I hear that. PS5 isn’t too far off at all..thing will be crazy when it drops

    • jp

      keep hoping.

    • Mark

      Lol. Not hoping for anything, I think it’ll be nasty. But Scorpio will hold me down for yrs to come!

    • Learned Handgun

      I doubt PS5 will drop until 2019 at earliest, but obviously it’ll be an upgrade over the Scorpio. But then I expect whatever comes after Scorpio to release a year or two after that, which will be another upgrade. So on and so on.

      What will really matter is if MS does pull out some exclusives at E3 and if their negotiations with Japanese developers leads to some of the former/upcoming PS4 exclusives being brought to Xbox.

      I think MS has really become quite serious about their Xbox support, so I’m quite optimistic. Losing this generation may have been a good thing for MS and a great thing for me (and other consumers).

    • Mark

      Yessir! I meant within 2-3 years for the PS5. And yes, if u see that Microsoft’s revealing Scorpio specs now, it’s cuz they’ve got some games to show. Dude they needed a whooping, cuz they fight harder for us lol

    • Jpilgrim82

      I love it because Microsoft has been doing some great pro-consumer things these past couple of years and games with gold couldn’t be better.

    • Jpilgrim82

      Sony fanboys love to bury the truth thinking if they say something enough it makes it true. Sony just now had a little burst of exclusive titles. Xbox has consistently had exclusives since launch when Sony didn’t have a thing! Even the holiday line up last year sucked. One busy burst of exclusives doesn’t make up for all of that. Plus half of those games are just filler for a list that hardly anyone actually even buys

  • Riggybro

    We did not get much work done yesterday:

    Talking, emailing, tweeting on Scorpio speculation.

  • crazy_black_man-
    • greatnessIsaLIE

      Is that ps4 pro 4k on the bottom compared to the Xbox 4k on top?

    • Learned Handgun

      It’s only false advertising if its MS (according to this self proclaimed Sony fan boy and multi-profile troll).

    • C. Hoffer

      No its the One/S…marketing vs reality.

    • greatnessIsaLIE

      Oh lol that’s funny I didn’t realize that was making fun of xbox. I thought he was comparing the crappy 3k that’s upscaled to 4k on ps4 to the native 4k the Scorpio is advertising.

      If it was comparing the ps4 pro to the Scorpio the Scorpio burger should be bigger while the pro burger stays the same on the bottom.

    • Victor Vai

      Yep. I cancelled my PS4 Pro preorder because of that.
      While Sony is hyping, Phil Spencer is delivering.

    • Mark

      Lol

      Just two hours to go. You’ll need to delete your account.

    • crazy_black_man-

      AAAAAAAND…..Lame. I was expecting so much more from the Scorpio reveal specs wise.

    • kee1haul

      Surprised your still here.

    • Mav6

      MS continues to promise 4K/60 on there games 3rd party devs can do with the power what they want… Richard over at DF have said based on what he’s seen it’s a BEAST capable of hitting 4K on games developed for the system, it’s capable for running 1080/900p original Xbox one/s games with a patch at native 4K… False hype you say…. OK

  • Holeybartender

    Native 4K Xbox One games on the Scorpio will be the equivalent of Native 1080p PS One games on PS4. Better resolution,same outdated graphics.

    • kee1haul

      Think about that for a second. 1080p is equal to 4k, even on the same games?

    • C. Hoffer

      Most of the people in this forum will not understand your comments. :/
      They do not have sufficient understanding of resolution vs screen density and see only ‘bigger’ numbers. sigh…
      There is a small portion that does understand but seem to be stuck fighting in the previous VGA era and they don’t realize their arguments don’t hold water with current tech.

    • Mark

      Not true. According D Foundry Forza is already hitting 4k 60fps at Ultra settings, at 66% GPU utilization

    • Holeybartender

      Um no,it doesn’t remaster Forza’s graphics.

    • Jpilgrim82

      Forza graphics don’t need remastering. They’re not like Gran Turismo that uses assets from two generations before. Plus Forza has PC versions and 4k assets are already available

    • Mark

      The article says they were hitting ultra settings at 4k, using the Forza Tech Engine, equivalent to Forza 6 grade quality

  • KashIsKlay

    Haters gon hate

    suckstation fanboys allready crying about “well were going to have ps5 later”lol.

      When the Scorpio Netflix 4K finally gets released , https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b42ed47a7744762425904e8399bef43ad30f99b0d539b75e1383ccdfe7628007.png Xbox will have had the weakest console for the previous 4 years.

    • Dougdec92

      Lol

    • greatnessIsaLIE

      Both wii u and switch are weaker than the xb1.lol
      Microsoft will never let Sony have the power advantage back for longer than a year or so. Ps5 will be better than the Scorpio but a year down the road you’ll have another Xbox that will destroy the Ps5 benchmarks. I’m glad that I can afford all the games in the world. I know the Ps5 is years away but I’m excited for its launch.

      Why don’t you put crackdown in there instead of netflix or at least kodi.

    • C. Hoffer

      Ummmm..
      Microsoft has had a ‘weaker’ system than Sony since the release of the Original Xbox and through the Xbox One S. That’s 4 YEARS right there. They have also had a full box/circuit board redesign (One S). Something that a lot of people said would never happen and they still fumbled the ball. lol
      Why on earth do you think “Microsoft will never let Sony have the power advantage for longer than a year or so.”????
      When do you think the One came out??? LOL Ans: Nov 2013
      Wishful thinking on your part.
      Now that both companies are aiming for the same architectures , expect a leap frog effect of 2 years for each. Sony has led for 4, in Nov 2017 it will be Xbox for 2, Sony for 2, Xbox for 2, etc.

    • C. Hoffer

      Where was the original One and One S in your comment? Both of which are absolute hardware garbage compared to the PS4 line. Why pretend they don’t exist? Where are all those One/S units going…the landfill??? lol

    • greatnessIsaLIE

      All of you guys are forgetting that the wii u is technically the weakest console.

    • C. Hoffer

      Most console players in these forums want to play more realistic looking games at fluid speeds. Nintendo cartoons don’t count and the Wii U was a poorly designed system from the word go.
      While the original Wii was a niche product that was cool enough and good enough to get people playing on games that they could no longer play because they were not available on any newer platforms. Games like Donkey Kong, Zelda, etc.

    The trolls are getting nervous ….I love it , they’re gathering like ants to witness ‘true greatness…

  • quantum

    Lets just wait and see guys. If it does all it says great, I just hope that it’s not crazy expensive or it won’t worth the hype.

  • Mr Xrat

    So the same games in 4K. Just as Greenberg said, just as everyone who had a clue figured out.

    Shitpio is a glorified upscaler.

    • kee1haul

      No upscaling.

    • Victor Vai

      Why Gamingbolt didn’t deleted your account remain a mistery to me.

    • Fweds

      Lol @ the attempted damage control, this is making my day.
