The left side of this image is the bottom, not the top. The motherboard is upside down inside Scorpio.

 

The proof is that the disc drive is upside down, the ports are upside down, and the ports are in the opposite order they are on the XBO S.

 

Here is a link to a post I made on a different website with pictures.

(MODS feel free to remove the link and post the images here. I've been having formating issues with them.)

It has a disc drive, so I consider it backwards.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

That is interesting.

But wouldn't it being upside effect the vapor chamber cooling system negatively? Hot, humid air rises and condenses on the fan cooled heat sink in a vapor chamber cooler, so wouldn't it being upside down prevent the air from rising and condensing on the heatsink properly?

Edit: Nevermind, looking at the picture it seems that the heatsink would be above, allowing the hot, humid air to rise and condense on the heatsink as intended.

Yeah with a normal fan it'd be odd to have it upside down, but with their vapor cooling it might be better.



It's right side up and the world is upside down. All bets are off on Trump's America.

This seems kinda interesting. But maybe it is just a mistake on the render and the ports can just be in a different order compared to Xbox One S



 

Upside down eh? I didn't really pay all that close attention to the ports, but you have a really strong point. The disc drive orientation as well. Phil did say the ports on Scorpio are laid out exactly the same as XB1S, so upgrading would be super simple in terms of just swaping directly like for like and your good to go.

With that in mind, the fact that Scorpio's internal design immediately makes you think of PS4, since ironically enough, its built "upside down" as well, makes this case even stronger. The fan type, a first for XB, but normal now for PS. The internal power supply, newer to XB, normal for PS. The cooling system completely closed in for maximum heat output directly out the rear of the console, newer to XB, normal for PS. Extremely compact design overall, newer to XB, normal for PS. I wonder if the mass storage HDD/SSD is upgradable based on its location inside the console? It looks like it could be potentially, not that its necessary with external support.

Scorpio being built "upside down" doesn't seem all that far fetched now really. The orientation in the picture would mimic Scorpio standing up like XB1S. When Scorpio is lying down it would be "upside down" inside the shell, in comparison to the XB1S, but the disc drive would end up on the same side because of this. Phil did say he wanted a family resemblance between them and this would allow for exactly that. I have a feeling Scorpio is going to be smaller than most think.

Good catch! I think your right.



The Canadian National Anthem According To Justin Trudeau

 

Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.

maybe the scorpio is upsite down because microsoft wants to "turn it around" ?

huh?  Consoles can't have disc drives?  Where will my blurays be played?  Also when are they bringing back cd playback?

It's so amazing that Switch ditched discs. Superior all around.
