Xbox Scorpio’s True Power Could Be Exhibited By 2018 and 2019 Games, Says Analyst

You might not get the full benefits of the Scorpio’s extra power right away.

The Xbox One Scorpio is slated to be the most powerful console ever made when it finally releases later this year- but how much of its power will actually be exhibited in a meaningful way? This is a question that has haunted us at GamingBolt for quite a while now, and one that we have attempted to ask a lot of the developers that we have had the chance to chat with.

According to Michael Goodman, an analyst at Strategy Analytics, however, fans may have to wait until next year, or even the year beyond that, before the Scorpio’s true power becomes apparent. Speaking to We Write Things, Goodman noted that “It is the third or fourth generation titles that really should be able to show the difference. My expectation is that the launch titles on Scorpio aren’t going to be that much more amazing than what you can find elsewhere. It is going to be a year or two down the road when you should start to see the true capability of the platform.’

This, of course, makes sense, and has historically been true for any new hardware. So while this prediction in and of itself isn’t all that wild, the larger question still looms- given Microsoft’s mandate for intercompatibility and parity with the original Xbox One, as well as the larger cumulative install base of the PS4, PS4 Pro, and Xbox One, all of which are far weaker systems- will many third parties actually bother to harness all the extra power the Scorpio has to offer meaningfully? Or will we be stuck with slightly prettier ports of the exact same games, and that’s it?

    The Xbox Scorpio running current-gen games in 1800p or native 4K is a good thing just thing look what happing right now the PS4 runs games in 1080p compared to the same games running in 900p on the Xbox One

    gamers obviously choose the 1080p versions

    • crazy_black_man-

      According to the title, people shouldn’t go out and buy the Scorpio until 2018 or 2019.

    • JC

      So it drops in Nov and you have to wait a few months into 2018? Big whoop…

    • crazy_black_man-

      No, not quite. Stay with me here. According to the title, you just have to wait until it has some goddamn games.

    • Deeboy

      wait until it have some games? Every game will be backwards compatible out the box with extended features. How much are you getting paid per lie? At least I hope you’re getting paid.

    • Gamez Rule

      “Every game will be backwards compatible out the box with extended features”

      All games with extended features? Are you sure because Phil himself has stated the following.

      “”If I’m a customer with a 1080p TV, you should go buy an Xbox One. That’s a great box for a 1080p television, ( *and there’s no reason to go buy something that supports 4K right now* ). If you got a 4K television, we’ve got a box coming for you””

      So why would Phil say that IF what you posted was correct? Wouldn’t Phil be stating the opposite, example, buy Scorpio to play all your current games with extended features?.

      Although Scorpio is coming people like myself are still waiting for MS to release true Xbone games that are exclusive to the console that I can’t play on PC etc. Not like Quantum Break that I played on Steam which is classed as a Xbone console exclusive, but a real exclusive like PS4’s Horizon: Zero Dawn etc.

    • Deeboy

      I hope you realize that info was almost a year ago and a lot has been said since then. Yes Phil himself said all Xbox 360 and Xbox one games will be backwards compatible out the box. A quick search can show you. That is if you are truly interested in the
      product to look it up. A lot has been revealed as of late and not by some gaming analyst.

    • Gamez Rule

      But the fact that Phil stated the above shows that unless you want 4k there is no reason to buy Scorpio? And to stay with Xbone?

      Which brings me come back to your comment of “Every game will be backwards compatible out the box with extended features” could be false as otherwise Phil wouldn’t have stated what he did above no matter IF it’s a year or so old.

      Can you show where it was officially stated that what you posted is correct and real? IE, that “every xbox one game is BC with extended features”? And that “all Xbox 360 games will be backwards compatible out the box”

    • Deeboy

      I’m not here to point you in the right direction. Follow him on twitter, look at some old post, Google It! Just don’t expect me to waste anymore of my time telling you what can be searched.

    • Gamez Rule

      So false news it is then as I have looked and searched and there is nothing official stating what you posted about and you yourself cannot show anything about “all Xbox 360 games will be backwards compatible out the box” let alone “every Xbox one game will come with with extended features” Thanks for clearing that one up.

    • Deeboy

      False news? Is my post from a television broadcasting production studio? Like I said if you can’t look it up yourself then you have bigger issues then trying to prove my post false.

    • Gamez Rule

      Regarding Scorpio MS have not stated officially that *ALL 360 games will be backwards compatible out the box* ( like you’re posting ) and MS have not stated officially that *Every game will be backwards compatible out the box with *extended features* ( Like you stated ) when posting about Xbone games running on Scorpio.

      So yes what you’ve posted is false info unless you can show where MS officially stated what you posted.

      Not ALL 360 games are BC on Xbone as of yet so where has Phil stated ALL Xbox 360 and Xbox one games will be backwards compatible out the box? And that every game has extended features out the box too?

    • Deeboy

      All the games on Xbox one including the backwards compatible titles will transfer over to the Scorpio. Understand what I’m saying before you go adding words. More news coming soon so stay tuned. Lol

    • crazy_black_man-

      Your boy Phil the Spinner once said that you would need to own a Xbox One in order to play Quantum Break. How did that one eventually work out?

      I dunno, maybe he “tweeted” that one too. Who out there, besides you few devoted Xbox clown zombies, gives a crap what he tweets anyway? Its all spin. Lies. Fake news.

    • Gamez Rule

      True Xbox One exclusives are becoming rare things these days imo

    • Deeboy

      Doesn’t matter what happens It’s what he said and yes you do need an Xbox one to play Quantum break if you play games on consoles.

    • Gamez Rule

      See we all knew that what is already on Xbone will work on Scorpio and that the games from 360 that are already working on Xbone will also work on Scorpio, BUT what you just posted is different to what you posted beforehand ( see below ). Oh and I didn’t add words at all to what you posted .

      “Every game will be backwards compatible out the box with *extended features*” & “Yes Phil himself said ALL Xbox 360 and Xbox one games will be backwards compatible out the box”

      So not ALL 360 games will be BC to Scorpio like you posted and not ALL Xbone games will have extended features either like you posted.

    • jorden

      ALL OF THE 360 BACKWARDS COMPATIBLE LIST!
      its growing every day.

      Extended features like PS boost mode.. witch shouldn’t have to exist to begin with. Xbox will auto “boost” XB1 games normally not like a stupid setting you have to turn on. it just will.

    • jorden

      you say nothing official like your trying to discount the tweets from Phil Spencer. which is where most of this extra info comes from.

      I have news for you.
      HES NOT ALLOWED TO LIE ABOUT A PRODUCT. NO ONE IS!
      If he was using hints and underlying wording then you may be able to claim it wont happen.
      But he has spoken in very plain English that these things WILL be coming out. Witch means that if it doesn’t somehow, then there will be lawsuits for false advertising.

      Go on. Cling to that hope.

    • Deeboy

      You see this is how false info gets spread because idiots don’t understand what people are saying in the first place. Then they get stuck on it. Move on dude until you get it.

    • Gamez Rule

      If correctly stated there wouldn’t be any understanding, but where you posted “Every game will be backwards compatible out the box with *extended features*” & “Yes Phil himself said ALL Xbox 360 and Xbox one games will be backwards compatible out the box” isn’t correct or what Phil stated as I clearly pointed out☺

    • Deeboy

      You yourself just said “We all knew that games on the Xbox one would be backwards compatible” yet you’re still here trying to prove what I said was false. You’re not interested in the Scorpio you’re just trying to prove me false which you can’t do. So with that said. Troll on.

    • Gamez Rule

      “ALL 360 games will be backwards compatible out the box” = FALSE.

      Not ALL 360 games are BC with Xbox one. Only the 360 games that are already BC with Xbone will be BC out the box with Scorpio = TRUTH. ( with more BC games to follow once released )

      “Every game will be backwards compatible out the box with *extended features*” = FALSE.

      Not all Xbone games will have *extended features* when played on Scorpio as it’s up to devs IF they want to add features to their games for Scorpio = TRUTH.

      He wants to sell both. XB1 isn’t going away when Scorpio comes out — it will be sub-$200. MS (and Sony) just want to get a box in the door so the residents will buy their games. Buy them on XB1, a Scorpio, a PC — it doesn’t matter. Not to MS — they are invariably tied to PC as the bulk of their business model.

      I buy every 3rd party game on PC and consoles are just a convenience. Holding games hostage…ah, “exclusive” from a PC is an annoyance. Personally, I have been campaigning for a “Play Anywhere” policy for all games over the last decade. This could easily have been a bonus for deluxe/limited edition games.

    • Gamez Rule

      A play anywhere would be great IF it was anywhere as then there would be no need to own two consoles, and console gamers wouldn’t need a PC for gaming etc.. But it’s not anywhere is it as 99% of the time it’s only Xbone and Windows 10.

      If games came to Steam / PS4 / Windows 10 / Xbone etc then gamers could have a choice on what platform they want to use to play those games in which would be great IMO.

      Example, Quantum Break that was once an Xbone exclusive got released on Steam and not just on a MS controlled system,so I choose Steam and Xbone.

      But then you have another view from gamers that when games stay on a console as exclusives it helps sell hardware and in turn allows money made to bring in more gaming titles and support for the gamers, and IMO that’s why PS4 is selling good when compared to Xbone.

      Sony and their PS4 have true exclusives that can only be found on their console while MS and their Xbone regarding console exclusives are becoming a rare things these days and IMO that’s why people are saying why have a Xbox One just grab a Windows 10 PC. Guess you cannot please everyone.

    • JC

      That’s funny, because the title makes NO mention of games and doesn’t even have the word “Game” in it… Which title were you referring to then? Help me out.

    • Dougdec92

      It is just like the analgesia supposed to be for the 3yr thrashing by Sony, it takes time to kick in, then horizon zero dawn has a blistering sequel, tlou2 is stealing sales…..and they will be waiting for games to fully use the 6tflops…lol

    • crazy_black_man-

      You are so on point!!! Sony already has this gen on lockdown.

    • Smart guy

      No that’s not what it says at all lol idiot

  • Tactical Lag-fighting tips

    Nice way to down play the whole “every game will be at native 4K” from the first announcement.

    • jorden

      Im excited for this xbox but i know not EVERY game will be 4k native. Personally i would rather have 1080p with every single setting turned up to “mindblowing”

    • Tomaterrrx

      They didn’t say that

  • Wei Feng

    They do the bad games, welcome to the china, we do a PlayStation games not the x box

    Sorry for your English I speak here

    • crazy_black_man-

      I agree. Thats what we say about Xbox in the US too. Fluk it.

    • Tactical Lag-fighting tips

      People understand that perfect dude.
      They fluk the xbox in Japan as well

    • Luke Skywalker

    • Wei Feng

      xbox does the sh4t for America they do the reason

    • Falconhoof

      每天因为Xbox伤害你的感觉,雪花,它是什么感觉被嘲笑?

    • Wei Feng

      I do playstation,
      its does shame to own the xbox

    • Falconhoof

      你的意思是,Playstation他妈的你,因为你弯腰,让他们做一些特别的事情。 你为什么在这里,你蠢吗? 你的行为羞辱你,没有别的

    • Wei Feng

      No they do not making the fun of me.

      Are you the xboxing fan, your family should have great shame on you.
      Not me.You bring shame here

    • Falconhoof

    • Zettabytes

    • Falconhoof

      Oh Christ no, Google translate!

  • Mr Xrat

    Someone needs to tell this analyst what the reason for the Shitpio’s existence is.

    • Tactical Lag-fighting tips

      for an updated tv and Kinect experience 😛
      and a second try of forcing the original DRM plan

    • jorden

      That makes no sense. The entire head team of Xbox was fired or “let go” Because they made such a mistake with the DRM problems and Kinect.

      You mental people really think they are trying to do it again? wow please use your brain next time.

    • Tactical Lag-fighting tips

      It’s Microsoft , look how well they learnt with windows phone

    • Mr Xrat

      One person left before the Xbone was released. All the others are still there, including Phil Spencer, who sat in all the Xbone planning meetings and ran their first party studios into the ground as Microsoft Studios head from 2008.

    • Smart guy

      Some people are just stupid dude.

  • Tactical Lag-fighting tips

    xbox fans are a bit stuck now , keep laughing at the PS4 pro longer, praise the current 720p-900p resolutions as enough + keep saying, “just you wait for the Scorpio”

    • jorden

      It took play station 3 years in some cases to get some of there games to launch. and now your trying to make fun when a couple games that are years old get scrubbed? ive got plenty more on the way and plenty more on the new hardware thats coming out.

      I have over 150 games on my xbox and dont know what to do with them all.. there is no ISSUE here. Saying you can poo out more turds then me isint much of a brag.

      You have a Japanese pipeline of Indy and Anime games and every year you need a translator to tell us English speaking people what it even is! Frankly you can have those games i dont give a crap.

    • Eddie Battikha

      Keep being stuck in Denial buddy, Halo is ur franchise game and it’s getting worse and more dry every time a new comes out. Never mind Xbox has a too small exclusives list, they can also be played on PC. I tell it how it is, PC for Graphics, Playstation for Exclusives and Xbox for Xbox live. That’s how it’s always going to be.

    • jorden

      lol okay it’s a real shame. I’m so sad.

    • Tomaterrrx

      Guess he must have got those 150 games from his imagination then.

  • Deeboy

    So now they use gaming Analysts info as source instead of waiting for Microsoft to share info about It’s own console. This is all so some of you PlayStation fan idiots can jump on line to tell everyone how much you hate Xbox instead of you actually playing your PlayStation. Some of you idiots aren’t even getting paid by Sony like the rest of them online telling lies.

    • crazy_black_man-

      Nobody hates the Xbox. We enjoy laughing at it way too much to be hating on it.

      https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/37fe0e73af34008f3fe43097742d385966df2fe29415d5fba81d9c05a3d83984.jpg

    • Deeboy

      Now I understand why you call yourself crazy black man. You must be mentally insane to laugh at unemotional console, an inanimate object that doesn’t give a wet donkey piss about what you find is funny. For what its worth you’ve made me laugh with your ignorance.

    • Smart guy

      He’s black dude he can’t help it

  • Eddie Battikha

    PS4 Pro is perfect until PS5 fall 2019 I’m assuming.

    • jorden

      PS5 In 2019? Nah. Thats too soon to their Pro version so many people would be mad because they just bought a PS4 Pro. Or the slim PS4. Think more 2020 at best.

    • Eddie Battikha

      I think Sony is going for 3 year hardware refresh cycles, it would turn out pretty good. But 2020 would be the latest, Well see how things turn out. I honestly can’t wait to move away from the Jaguar Cpu the sooner the better.

    • Holeybartender

      The refresh cycle is for this gen only,once 4k is the new norm we will see a PS5.

    • Eddie Battikha

      By Fall 2019 4k will be the new norm and PS5 will be out, for the first time in over a decade Playstation won’t have a bottleneck CPU, Cell for the ps3 was advanced, but just super complicated to code for.

    • Eddie Battikha

      Also don’t forget when The last of us came out in June 2013, PS4 was released later in November 2013. The last of us 2 wI’ll be released I April 2019 and then PS5 will be released in November 2019.

    • Smart guy

      Actually dude the pro is not that good. No reason to get a pro over ps4. I took to pro back. The scorpio is just the smart way to go

    • Eddie Battikha

      Sucks for u, I got a LGB6 TV the Pro looks awesome on it. That boost mode is gonna be awesome.

    • Eddie Battikha

      I can understand if u have a lame tv, I got a LGB6 and I’m going to enjoy every Sony Exclusive, People are excited about Scorpio because of 6 teraflops. Xbox has such a small list of exclusives, it’ll always be that way.

  • Holeybartender

    I smell a Scorpio console exclusives announcement coming…

  • Triton

    Since I mostly play BF and COD my backlog grows with ~50 games a year, since I get all the GwG + buy some games that I dont have time to play anyway.
    I hope the majority will be playable on the Scorpio.

    • Luke Skywalker

      they all will be playable and lol you sound like someone I know

    • Triton

      Chewie? 🙂
