Project Scorpio is Microsoft’s 4K baby that will release sometime this Fall. There is not much we know about the device but recent whitepaper leak raised concerns that it may not be the ‘true 4K’ machine Microsoft wants us to believe.

Still, it is the most powerful console and Ori and the Blind Forest developer seems really impressed by what MS has in development. According to Thomas Mahler:

All consoles now are x86 PCs and the architecture will remain the same, that’s why Sony was able to quickly iterate on the PS4 and make a beefier version of it.

Scorpio is a next-gen machine with the added benefit that all your old games will still be compatible. From this point on, similar to PCs, you’ll not lose your library when you buy a next-gen system.

While praising Project Scorpio, he took a jab at PS4 Pro and said the following on Neogaf:

I guess since NeoGAF is confused, Microsoft will need to do a little work to make it clear to everyone that Scorpio isn’t just a half-assed upgrade (which the PS4 Pro kinda is…), but a full-blown next-gen machine that’s just backwards-compatible to your current library

The whitepaper that leaked earlier mentioned that there is no ESRAM in Project Scorpio. We also came to know that it may not feature native 4K, at least not in all games. Still, we can’t say for sure what Scorpio can do until the device is fully revealed.
