Aaron Greenberg was in attendance at the company’s Xbox FanFest event in Mexico City, where the executive touched base on the promise of the Xbox Scorpio.
As relayed by GameSpot, Greenberg began by claiming that the 2017 hardware refresh is capable of delivering “really true 4K,” and that it’ll tout an ability to render games in a way that “we’ve never seen before on console.” Little is known about the price of Project Scorpio, only that it’ll come packing a reported 6 teraflops of computing power.
“This will really bring the most powerful console you’ve ever seen. It will bring these really true 4K, really incredible visual games that we’ve never seen before on the console.
“People who have spent thousands of dollars on a high-end PC are getting that experience. How do we bring that to scale in a console in your living room? That’s a big part of what Project Scorpio is about.”
What do you make of Greenberg’s assessment? Microsoft has earmarked Project Scorpio for release in holiday 2017. The PS4 Pro, for the sake of perspective, hit the market just last week.
