Are Microsoft already engaging in mixed messages with the Xbox One Scorpio with regards to exclusives?

Aaron Greenberg, head of Xbox Games marketing at Microsoft, stated that, “Great thing is with Project Scorpio as part of #XboxOne family all your games will work, no Scorpio exclusives, so no one gets left behind.”

Of course, someone in the comments pointed out that devs could potentially target Scorpio-only and Greenberg replied, “Not true.”

But cut to Shannon Loftis, general manager of game publishing at Microsoft Studios, in an interview (transcription by NeoGAF) where she was asked about Scorpio-only games. Could there be any games that only shipped for Scorpio? Loftis noted, “I don’t know about that. We’ll see. It’s up to the game development community.”

Loftis also revealed that, “Game developers that are writing games…if they want to ship the game sooner if they enable dynamic scaling the game will automatically look better on Scorpio.”

Loftis’s statement could come across as a bit of “never say never” on her part while Greenberg takes a more hard and fast stance. Regardless, what are your thoughts on this? Let us know in the comments.
