According to Microsoft, Project Scorpio will have exclusive games, but all of them will be virtual reality games.

In an interview with Engadget; Microsoft’s Head of Xbox Games Marketing Aaron Greenberg confirmed that all non-VR games will be playable on both Xbox One and Project Scorpio.

Project Scorpio Exclusive Games

Microsoft essentially does not want anyone to get left behind because Xbox One and Xbox Scorpio is one ecosystem:

We said we’re not going to have console-exclusive games for Project Scorpio. It’s one ecosystem — whether you have an Xbox One S or Project Scorpio, we don’t want anyone to be left behind. Now, with the power and capabilities we have, we’ll be able to do high-fidelity VR. Now, that space, we don’t think of that as console gaming, we think of that as high-fidelity VR, and so with the VR experiences those will be new things that you will get on Project Scorpio.

Greenberg also confirmed that all pre-existing games and peripherals that users bought for Xbox One or Xbox One S will also work on Xbox Scorpio:

Generally, when you bring a new iteration of console hardware you lose compatibility with their games and accessories. So we’re saying, if you bought games and accessories for your Xbox One, or you buy an Xbox One S, those games and those accessories are going to work on Project Scorpio. When you think about backwards compatibility and our games lineup, we want gamers to know that when they’re ready to upgrade to Scorpio, that content will go with them. That’s our promise and commitment around compatibility.

It is basically good of Microsoft to clear things up for users who are planning to upgrade to Project Scorpio when it launches at the end of 2017. Since Xbox One does not support VR, all VR titles will be exclusive to Xbox Scorpio.
