In short, Microsoft is doing its own thing and not looking at Sony. With that said, both companies never miss a chance to take jabs at each and boost their machine by promoting features the other doesn’t have.

In a different Tweet, Phil Spencer shot down rumors of Project Scorpio Teraflop performance it toned down from 6 to 5.

Phil Spencer has discussed teraflops performance in the past and stated the following to explain how they see it:

Well, I try not to really talk using the term. It’s like a car — you wouldn’t describe how fast it goes using only one characteristic. But I guess it’s like a teraflop is like horsepower — you’d probably have in your head what 100 horsepower could do, or 200.

But it’s much more than that — there’s other things that dictate how fast the car goes. A transmission. Its weight. It’s the same with Scorpio; it’s not just the number of teraflops that makes it powerful.

Project Scorpio is coming in Fall 2017, presumably for a little over $400. Well, that is if Microsoft wants the console to sell well and attract PC gamers.
