Xbox Project Scorpio is one of the most highly anticipated tech releases in 2017, and reports have been circulating that the upcoming gaming console will come out as the most powerful ever manufactured. Microsoft claims that its new gaming system will be better than the current PlayStation 4 Pro as it will have the ability to support full 4K resolution.

According to the reports, Xbox Project Scorpio can run video games at 4K native resolution, which is something PlayStation 4 Pro could not do. Several industry observers believe that this ability will put the new Microsoft console ahead in the competition as players nowadays usually go for devices with better screen resolution output.

As of the moment, both Sony and Microsoft have been going at it in the console market for quite some time now. This year, before Xbox Project Scorpio, Microsoft released an updated version of its Xbox One called Xbox One S, while Sony recently released two consoles, the PlayStation 4 Slim and PlayStation 4 Pro. The PlayStation 4 Slim is said to be an upgraded version of PlayStation 4 as it carries a lightweight and sleeker design. The only advantage of PlayStation 4 Slim over its closest competition the Xbox One S is its low price at less than $300.

Meanwhile, in a report by USA Today, Shannon Loftis, the Microsoft Studio GM, revealed that all game titles under Xbox Project Scorpio will run at 4K native resolution. The new console has certainly become a subject of numerous reports all over the Internet and Loftis revelation only supports the claim that Xbox Project Scorpio will arrive as the best in the market.

Nonetheless, several industry experts are saying that the ability of Xbox Project Scorpio to run games at native 4K resolution might compromise some components and features of the console. Fans could no longer wait to know more about the official list of specs and features of Xbox Project Scorpio. Microsoft is expected to make that announcement anytime soon.
