Though it’s not even out yet, Microsoft’s Project Scorpio is being marketed as the most powerful console ever, capable of 4K resolution visuals and VR support. It’s still a ways off (Holiday 2017) but that hasn’t stopped us about wondering whether the console’s extra power will actually be put to good use. Especially when you consider Microsoft wanting all games to maintain parity across Xbox One platforms.

GamingBolt had a chance to speak to Bogdan Iliesiu of Angry Mob Games, currently working on Brawlout, as to whether Scorpio’s power can be put to any meaningful use in the long run. He noted that, “Sure, it’s usually easy to pump up the graphics, to take advantage of the extra processing power. If the games are designed for the Xbox One, they’ll look great on Scorpio.”

However, Iliesiu also said that, “If it’ll be the other way around, and the games will be pushed to the limits, to look amazing on the Scorpio first, it’ll probably feel like playing on an old laptop, when playing that game on the Xbox One.” This seems to indicate that Scorpio far out-classes the Xbox One in terms of hardware performance.

So the question then is how far developers can go with all that extra processing power to optimize their Xbox One titles. Maybe into true native 4K? We’ll find out for ourselves in the coming year but let us know what you think in the comments below.
