Previously we talked about how Microsoft had changed to wording of VR from their official site and that made us wonder whether or not the upcoming Project Scorpio would even feature VR. The two major selling points of the console are in fact, native 4K gaming and high-fidelity VR. Seeing how the latter was removed from the site, people got very curious indeed.
It comes as great news then that Microsoft has finally come out and confirmed that Project Scorpio will support VR. A Microsoft representative has confirmed that high-fidelity VR experiences will be supported by the upcoming console. But it is confusing why Microsoft would remove VR related content from their official website if they were going to offer it in the first place.
According to the representative:
“When Project Scorpio ships later this year it will be the most powerful console ever built with a 6 teraflop GPU to deliver true 4K gaming, high-fidelity VR experiences, and greater graphic fidelity. We have nothing additional to share at this time,”
It is safe to say that Microsoft had us worried for a moment. I mean there are loads of rumors that claim that Project Scorpio will not be able to achieve native 4K and if the console did not have VR either then I do not see this console being worth the hype. It would just be Scalebound all over again and people would surely not trust the company in the future.
The description of Project Scorpio was changed to the following:
“The most powerful console ever, featuring six teraflops of graphical processing power, true 4K gaming, and compatibility with Xbox One games and accessories,”
I think there is something fishy going on, I just can’t seem to put my finger on what. What do you think is going on? Let us know what you think.
