'Xbox Project Scorpio' Release Date, News & Update: Stronger And Better Than Sony PS4 Pro? "Really True 4K" Experience
Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro has been released last week, Nov. 10, 2016. On the other hand, Microsoft's Project Scorpio console is said to be out in 2017 and Xbox executive Aaron Greenberg said that it is capable to deliver a true 4k quality resolution.
During the Xbox Fanfest in Mexico City, Greenberg said that this kind of console will be the most powerful that anyone has seen. He said that users could experience a "really true 4k" that will allow them to have an incredible visual games according to Gametransfers.
He also praised other high-end PC saying that users could also experience what he called a "really true 4k" but they have to spend thousands of dollars. He asked an open ended question, "How do we bring that to scale in a console in your living room?" He further added that it will be a big part of their upcoming project.
Microsoft confirmed that users could experience a native 4k when they play all first party games. Last September, Microsoft Studios GM Shannon Loftis said that they are making sure that the games they are launching could be rendered at 4k.
Although Project Scorpio was announced by Microsoft last June at E3, the company has not revealed too much specifics about the console. However, Greenberg assures users that it will change soon because they will reveal something about Project Scorpio that fans will really love.
Mike Ybarra, on the other hand, revealed that Project Scorpio could support Xbox 360 games. He is the engineering lead of Xbox and he also confirmed that all Xbox One titles could be played on the console. Microsoft also added that Project Scorpio will not have any exclusive games except for virtual reality titles.
According to Gamespot, there are still no announcements as to the price of the upcoming project, but Microsoft said that it will be a premium device, so that means that it will not be cheap.
Since Microsoft announced that Project Scorpio will be more powerful than the console offered by Sony in a significant margin, it is expected that it will cost higher. The price of Sony's PS4 pro is $400.
