2017 is the year when Xbox One Scorpio will launch and Microsoft execs are already calling it a “Year of Project Scorpio“. Microsoft has been marketing the console as 4K capable with 6 TFLOPs of computational power and everyone is eager to know if the console will actually feature these specs.

While Microsoft has been talking about their console and how powerful it will be, still no concrete details are known about it like its specs or price. According to 343 Industries’ Frank O’ Conner, he might have seen the specs for Xbox One Scorpio and it is “beefier” than he expected.

Haha, although I probably “know” in that I might have seen it in a slide or something, it’s literally not something I have time to think about now and I actually couldn’t remember whatever specs I’ve been exposed to even if I was tortured. I literally couldn’t leak or answer a question that went beyond “Can I do this? Does it support that? How many of these could it render?” What I do remember is that it’s beefier than I expected.

Given that Xbox One Scorpio will have high-end specs the console will have no trouble running VR games. According to Studio Wildcard’s co-founder Jeremy Stieglitz, Xbox One Scorpio seems to be powerful enough for virtual reality and more importantly it can make it look good.

He added that the team is currently experimenting with VR for Ark Survival Evolved and they are not sure about implementing it.

It looks plenty powerful enough (for VR) to support it and have it look really good, it’s just a matter of getting our hands on the console and seeing what we can achieve with it.

Xbox One Scorpio will launch in Holiday 2017 and Microsoft is yet to fully reveal the console and its price.
