Microsoft Hint At The Xbox Scorpio Price Tag

Microsoft Hint At The Xbox Scorpio Price Tag

During E3 2016, Microsoft unveiled Project Scorpio, "the most powerful console ever made", and will feature 6 teraflops of performance.

As it turns out, the Xbox One S does not support 4K pass-through.

The Xbox One S supports 4K/UltraHD, too, but only for movie playback from specially-marked Blu-Ray discs, not for games.

What this means for you is that you'll be able to play (certain) games in full, glorious, "true" 4K/UltraHD resolution, the next huge step up from our modern and more common HD technologies. It's also worth mentioning that you can now stand your Xbox One upright with the One S, giving you another option when it comes to placement on your TV stand, desk, or wherever else you intend to keep your console. That depends on your personal needs. Technically, the latest Xbox One S update is said to power more juice in a design that is nearly 40% smaller than the original version of Xbox One. So, is the Xbox One S finally a match for the PS4, and is it worth upgrading to one if you already own an original Xbox One? This is especially likely due to the overwhelmingly positive reception for the "Xbox One S". Microsoft's made-to-order controllers are now only available for purchase in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico, but the company hopes to bring its products to more Xbox markets in 2017 and will have more innovative features to share soon.

As earlier mentioned, the console's graphics speed could be coming from AMD with its Polaris architecture graphics card since the company supplied CPUs and graphics processing units (GPUs) for the Xbox One. Spencer implies that the work that game devs are doing now to make their games 4K compatible on PC will make the transfer to Xbox Scorpio that much easier. "In August, I think we're going to sell a lot of consoles".

The Xbox One S is a great console. The upcoming release of the Microsoft exclusive ReCore might well incentivize consumers to pick up an Xbox One. The service also offers live streams of local broadcasts as well, meaning you can watch local news right through the app.
