[TV] Project Scorpio is a 4K-capable, VR-ready Xbox One Launching Next Fall

The next major addition to the Xbox family is coming next year. Today at E3 in Los Angeles Microsoft officially revealed the long-rumored Project Scorpio, an enhanced version of the Xbox One that's capable of running 4K-native games, and which will also support virtual reality experiences and feature a hefty six teraflops of power. According to Xbox chief Phil Spencer, Microsoft views the new device as much more than a simple refresh.

""It's a dramatic step up for us.""

"The important thing for Scorpio is that it's a dramatic step up for us in terms of hardware capability," he told The Verge in an interview last week. "Because as we saw 4K gaming and really high-end VR taking off in the PC space, we wanted to be able to bring that to console. Project Scorpio is actually an Xbox One that can natively run games in 4K and is built with the hardware capabilities to support the high-end VR that you see happening in the PC space today... when it ships it will be the most powerful console ever built."

All models of the Xbox One will be able to play the same library of games, and that includes Scorpio, the original Xbox One, and the just-announced Xbox One S. On Scorpio, though, many of those games will feature improvements because of the more powerful hardware. Spencer cites Halo 5 as an example. While the game is capable of running at 1080p and 60 frames per second on the Xbox One, often the resolution drops in order to maintain a solid framerate. On Scorpio that won't be the case. "When a game like that runs on Scorpio," says Spencer, "it's going to run at maximum resolution the whole time."

Xbox conference was nearly perfect. They killed it.

There should've been one more new IP game. Then it would've been perfect.

Scorpio sounds great. 4K console 6 TFLOPS. Sadly Holidays 2017 release.

And the best news. Every single game is coming to PC ! wheee.gif

remember all future Xbox games are coming to PC as well...

I love the concept of the new Xbox but I am not picking it up as games are coming to PC in the future.

Edit: Btw sell your Xbone now as not only the scorpio is coming out but Xbox One slim for same price is coming out as well. Regular Xbox Ones will drop in value.

PS4 Neo is rumored to be 4,X TFLOPs. So the Xbox will be better if rumors are true.

Maybe the PS4 NEO comes out earlier or is cheaper?

Same here. Unless they have one game that's only on Xbox only. And i must have it then i'll buy it. Now lets see what Sony does. Since their exclusive games are only on PS.

Man all I know is that Sony wont like the chance that new Xbox will be stronger than the Playstation. I really want some news from Sony about the new console. I really believe they postphoned it and it was normally supposed to come out in September.

SO far all games are coming to PC. But remember by PC I mean Windows 10.

They did announce full 4K support and it is in the realm of the 6TFLOPs. It will either match the 980 Ti if or outright beat it.
