Is the Scorpio next gen?

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Is the Scorpio next gen?

Let's get to the meat and potatos, and cut the bs.

It can run games at native 4k, while the Xbone is 900p in most cases (skipping 1080p, 2k, better than 2k but not 4k checkerboarding, and going straight to 4k), while Wii U to Switch IS a gen change going from 700p to 900p. This is a vastly bigger leap for Microsoft in every possible way. Even doing this, Digital Foundry says a lot of the simpler games running at native 4k may even have overhead for better effects. So where do you stand. a console being the weakest of the two jumping ahead of its competition and its mid gen upgrade, will it need an xbone2 in a year or two, or more like several?

No. It has the exact same library as the Xbox one, and the Xbox one S.

No new games = not next gen.

  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

i dont think just resolution defines next gen

Nope, its current gen running at 4k...

Plus MS themselves don't call it a next generation console so its silly to call it that. It won't be the base hardware that all games on the platform are built around, that will be the Xbox One.

We'll see how long that lasts. Lol.



Having watched Digital Foundry's video 

It is clear that this is as he says at 7:20 "Scorpio is a mid-gen refresh" and then he goes on to talk about how the already existing software informed them of bottlenecks which they fixed in the hardware design. So, no, not "next-gen" just meant to be the definitive current-gen experience for multiplatform games. 



Also - I'm not counting VR games.
Those will be "exclusive" to Scorpio because the Xbox one S couldn't hack it.
