Taking a step up on the competition, Microsoft has revealed that its Project Scorpio will render games natively in 4K, to one-up the PS4 Pro.
The PS4 Pro basically upscales games to 4K, but it isn’t quite as spiffy as simply rendering at native 4K, which Microsoft claims that Project Scorpio will in fact do. They’re also making sure that any games launched within Scorpio’s time frame will render in 4K.
So that means that the graphics of whatever games produced for Microsoft’s next Xbox console, could very well be crispiest console gaming has to offer.
Microsoft is also looking into VR for Project Scorpio. We don’t know if they want to integrate it with Hololens tech or produce a standalone VR headset with a manufacturer somewhere but we hope they reveal their plans soon.
