It's a mediocre bluray player with a clunky interface and a noisy cooler, which spins up and down during movie playback, drive is loud too. Extra clunky without the Xbox bluray remote, because then you have to use the controller. It's a very cheap solution.
People that really buy 4K UHD Bluray's (which are very expensive and requires internet because of DRM) most often uses quality fan-less standalone players with both HDR10 and Dolby Vision, Xbox lacks DV. Physical media is dying tho. Only enthusiasts buy them. And enthusiasts don't use cheap consoles to watch their movies.
Microsoft's biggest selling point of the Xbox One S was that bluray drive. Because the hardware was mediocre at best, not worth talking about.
Most games will get upscaled on the Scorpio too. It's far from powerful enough to bring native 2160p gameplay in demanding titles with good fps at all times. They are already talking about checkerboard rendering etc. But obviously they want to hype their upcoming product.Edited by Lass3 - 4/16/17 at 4:20am
