While we already know quite a bit about the PS4 Pro and its capabilities, we don’t know nearly as much about Microsoft’s upcoming competitor, Project Scorpio. However, following the PS4 Pro announcement Microsoft has been coming across as very confident and this week, they began claiming that all first-party titles will run at native 4K, rather than in upscaled form.
Obviously, Project Scorpio is still over a year away from release, so there is still time for tweaks to be made on the hardware side. When the console does land, though, Microsoft is planning on all of its first-party games to be running at native 4K.
Speaking with USA Today, Microsoft Publishing Manager, Shannon Loftis said: “Any games we’re making that we’re launching in the Scorpio time frame, we’re making sure they can natively render at 4K”. Aside from that, Microsoft is also exploring which games will support VR when Scorpio launches.
Unfortunately, for now, we don’t know what games Microsoft is planning for the Scorpio launch but from next year, we should start learning more and more about the console.
KitGuru Says: At this point, Microsoft seems quite confident in Scorpio and its ability to compete with the PS4 Pro, despite launching a year from now. However, there is still a lot about the console we don’t know, aside of the amount of TFLOPS it can push.
