We speculated earlier that Microsoft will only discuss the specs of Project Scorpio this week and keeping Digital Foundry’s skill set in mind, it is likely to be true.
According to Microsoft’s claim, Project Scorpio is able to run games at native 4K which makes Thursday’s reveal all the more interesting. Even some of the most powerful GPUs struggle to maintain a decent frame rate at 4K. A console handling 4K gaming at a reasonable price has us curious.
Somewhere between $350 to $450 seems like the sweet spot for Project Scorpio. Anything above that and Microsoft will have a hard time convincing buyers.
A steady flow of games is also key for Microsoft’s success. On Xbox One, the lack of games has struck the company hard, resulted in the number two position this console generation.
On top of that, cancellation of fan favorites like Scalebound and Fable Legends didn’t do any favors to the company’s reputation and its Xbox brand.
Moreover, Microsoft is yet to name its new machine but rumor has it that Project Scorpio is called Xbox One X. There are no official words yet but we will know for sure come Thursday.
