During a wide-ranging interview with Weekly Famitsu, Phil Spencer was asked about the differences between the upcoming PS4 Pro and Project Scorpio. The Xbox top dog didn’t seem to want to start another battle in the eternal console war, and began by explaining that there’s more to consoles than just throwing out impressively high numbers (or mentioning ‘blast processing’, come to think of it). So while Spencer was more than happy to remind the world that Scorpio’s performance can be discussed in relation to its 6 teraflops, he also believes that the games themselves are going to be a lot … Read More »

We’re at a very strange phase in this console generation, with the mid-cycle Scorpio and PS4 Pro upgrades dropping shortly. But that doesn’t mean it’s game over for the Xbox One. That’s according to Forza Horizon 3’s creative director, Ralph Fulton, who told the highly respected video games journal tabloid newspaper The Daily Star that there’s life in the original Xbox One yet. He said: How much more can you push out of it [The Xbox One]? I would probably just say don’t give up on Xbox One, just yet. It may be easy to consider the original Xbox One … Read More »

It’s starting to appear like Microsoft is confident with taking shots at Sony.  In a recent interview with Albert Penello, head of product and planning  for Xbox, he has made it very clear that they are focused on what developers want with 4K but the competition is not. “I think there are a lot of caveats they’re giving customers right now around 4K. They’re talking about checkerboard rendering and up-scaling and things like that. There are just a lot of asterisks in their marketing around 4K, which is interesting because when we thought about what spec we wanted for Scorpio, … Read More »

When the Xbox One was first announced, Microsoft also provided details of a system which will change the way we play games; The Cloud. Alas, we are yet to see it at it’s full potential. Yes, the cloud has been around for quite some time now, and we have already seen it implemented in a number of ways. One, in particular has been with us since part-way through the Xbox 360’s life-cycle, allowing us to store saves in ‘the cloud’ and continue where we left off on another Xbox 360 console half way across the globe, providing you had access to the internet … Read More »

Phil Spencer Head of Xbox has spoken out in regards to the newest member of the Xbox family coming in 2017 – Project Scorpio. Spencer “the Xbox people’s Champion” says the Scorpio will be more inline with what people expect from consoles, “So I wouldn’t get people worried that this thing is going to be unlike any console price ypu’ve ever seen. We didn’t design it that way” This is fantastic news, some of the team here were only recently speculating as to what the price point could come in at, this says to us we may be looking at potentially £500 for what’s … Read More »

Console wars are thing among fans of games.  I don’t really see a point because I believe it should be play what makes you happy for whatever reason.  Hardware developers strive to be the best selling console manufacturers on the market but don’t ten to let things like mud slinging get into the mix.  Microsoft however seems to be taking a more direct and vocal approach to take down Sony’s console sales lead. Over the last month, Microsoft and Sony have announced and/or launched new consoles with additional features.  Microsoft launched the new Xbox One S and back at E3 … Read More »

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 … Read More »

Not much is known about the Xbox Scorpio right now, other than the fact it’s supposed to be the “bee’s knees”. But now we can add “impressive portfolio” to that ever-growing list of facts. Answering a question on Twitter about what games we could expect to see including in Scorpio’s launch line-up, to which he answered with the following: @Baldy17 Portfolio is shaping up very well. It’s great that teams are getting up to speed with 4K gaming now on PC to prepare for Scorpio. — Phil Spencer (@XboxP3) August 23, 2016 Of course it isn’t a surprise that Phil … Read More »

Project Scorpio, the forthcoming uber-powerful iteration of Xbox One, is due to land towards the end of 2017 and it looks as though Electronic Arts – one of the biggest publishers in the industry – is fully behind it. Speaking to our friends over at Game Informer, EA Executive Vice President Patrick Soderlund expressed his excitement about the move towards a more iterative update cycle for consoles, bringing more power to gamers within a console’s lifecycle. “If you’re a developer, when you make games, you always want more capacity. You always want to bring more to the players. We’re truly … Read More »
