After witnessing Sony reveal their PlayStation 4 Pro yesterday evening, Microsoft have crawled out of the dark to remind everyone that not only does their mid-generation console refresh of the Xbox One (codenamed “Scorpio”) still exist, but that it will feature “true 4K” gaming.
Keen to remind gamers that Scorpio will have 6TFLOPS stuffed right inside it compared to PS4Pro’s 4.2, Microsoft released the following statement:
“Launching holiday 2017, Project Scorpio is the next member of the Xbox One family and will be the most powerful console ever created with 6TFLOPS capable of delivering true 4K gaming,” states Microsoft.
“All Xbox One games and accessories will be compatible with Project Scorpio, including over 100 exclusives like Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3, ReCore, Dead Rising 4, and more, with the biggest games line-up ever coming to Xbox One and Windows 10 this year.”
“At Xbox, our goal is to put gamers at the centre of everything we do. The new hardware available now and next year was designed with that in mind to give gamers a choice in how they play.”
“Starting at £249, Xbox One S is the only console available today with built-in 4K Blu-ray – a value price compared to 4K Blu-ray players. It also offers 4K video streaming plus HDR for video and gaming.”
It truly is an exciting time to be a consumer as we hand over our money to these brands.
