Microsoft Confirms Project Scorpio Will Run Native 4K Games
The closer the release to PS4 Neo, the more news and rumours about Project Scorpio start creeping up from all corners of the internet. And, to no surprise, one of these rumours was that Project Scorpio will run native 4K visuals on all their games, rather than simply upscaling 1080p.
Shannon Loftis, Publishing General Manager for Microsoft has confirmed in a recent interview with USA Today, that Project Scorpio will natively run all first party games in 4K. Any game made by Microsoft Studios that is.
“Any games we’re making that we’re launching in the Scorpio time frame, we’re making sure they can natively render at 4K”
– Shannon Loftis, Interview with USA Today
Great news for those looking for the high-end graphical output that Scorpio promises. But while we can look forward to first-party perfection, we’ve yet to hear whether the option is there for third-party developers to take advantage of native 4K resolution, but we now know it is at least doable.
Do you think all games should natively run 4K on Project Scorpio, or do you think the technology isn’t quite ready for that jump so soon into this generation? We’ll be happy to hear what your thoughts are in the comments below
