Could Microsoft be moving away from a VR focus with the Scorpio?
When the Xbox One Scorpio was announced last year, Microsoft made it a point to call out the two areas that the new system would be focusing on- delivering true, native 4K gaming, and high fidelity VR gaming, both of which are beyond the reach of all other consoles on the market.
Now, it seems like Microsoft may be trying to shift attention away from the system’s VR capabilities, presuming it has any. As was pointed out on NeoGAF (via GameSpot), the Xbox Scorpio website has removed any and all references to VR. As to why Microsoft is doing that, no one knows. It is entirely possible that their VR solution is not ready to go. On the other hand, maybe the large scale market failure of VR so far might have made them rethink their idea of focusing marketing of the Scorpio around this functionality.
Whatever the case, we have more new questions about the Scorpio every day- Microsoft really need to hurry up and answer some of these, before we all go crazy with the speculation.
