Forums - Gaming Discussion - Spencer/Microsoft flip-flopping on Scorpio already....

There will be if we start seeing upgraded games running at 1080P with higher frame rates/effects compared to standard though yes?

 

Eh, no, because then again, those games that buffer at 4K won't be visible in non-4K TVs.

Lol good luck with that buddy.

You're the one that's seeing a contradiction where there's none. In fact, you agreed with Pokoko and his very first words were "Not a contradiction [...]".



Microsoft intend Scorpio to be a 4k gaming console, but they can't prevent developers to offer other improvements to games with the extra power, that's all.



Tim and The Princes...

This all about MS trying to cover the fact that sparingly few X1 games could hit 1080p in the first place. They're just pulling this '4K gaming' stunt to convice people that X1 is the most powerful console on the market



I predict NX launches in 2017 - not 2016

Did not state what part of his post I agreed with(that latter part).

But the later part is a consequence of admitting that it is not a contradiction...

Not a contradiction but it is kind of misleading. The second quote really makes it sound like 4K is going to be the standard for Scorpio.

Someone gets it.

And nothing in the first quote says that it won't be standard. Just that they're not going to be dicks (and potentially cost themselves some games) about it.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Read on its own, maybe. But I do see those two quotes as being complete contradictions really. I see them as conflictin statements. One says you will see no benefit from the Scorpio if you don't have a 4K TV and the other strongly implies that is will be possible to see benefit even with a 1080P TV. We will find out in time though.



They designed it with 4K in mind, but it's not mandatory for game devs to make games in 4k, see those 900p games upscaled to 1080p in a lot of games? oh right.....
