Microsoft Will Invest More In First-Party Games

The folks at Windows Central got their hands on a series of images that showcase how the upcoming supercharged Xbox will enhance your games, and the improvements seem significant - even for folks that plan on playing Scorpio on a plain old 1080p TV or monitor. And I think Scorpio will be the best console to go play these games on.

Xbox Scorpio could cost potentially launch with a higher price tag in the United Kingdom, it has been suggested. After that, the team started working on Xbox One Project Scorpio prototypes. The above image demonstrates, in order from left-to-right, the resolution of the Xbox One, the Scorpio at 4K on a HD display, and the Scorpio at 4K native.

But the company remains firm, insisting that it has a killer line-up of games planned for E3 in a couple of months for both the Xbox One and Project Scorpio - and there's apparently more where that came from.

An official said the victims' identities are being verified before being handed over to the Qatari delegation. For example, Qatar's capital city of Doha has hosted talks between the Taliban and Afghan government.

Finally, try disconnecting from Xbox Live from the Wi-Fi settings in order to put the Xbox One into offline mode, then reboot the console. As you'd expect, Project Scorpio looks better than Xbox One at 1080p due to supersampling, which is made possible thanks to its hefty GPU and CPU upgrades and fully customized hardware synergy.

At this point, the biggest factor to complement Project Scorpio's launch would be the exclusive games that will take advantage of its power.

Spencer forwarded the revelation during a candid interview with The Guardian, saying that the so-called "golden age of television" is attributable to the subscription-based streaming services offered by Netflix, Amazon, and HBO, and that such a model in games "might spur new story-based games coming to market because there's a new business model to help support their monetisation".

MICROSOFT claims its follow up to the Xbox One will be "the world's most powerful console" - and these teaser pics certainly don't disappoint. According to them, the Xbox Scorpio could have some major problems when the holiday 2017 release date rolls around.
