Ken Lobb Talks About Xbox One Project Scorpio

According to Ken Lobb, gaming veteran who worked on GoldenEye 007:

“The Xbox One S is a good version of this. It’s better than the One. It’s, you know, less than 10 percent better, but it’s better, and that kind of thing was sort of impossible when you go back to the Super NES. We couldn’t have shipped a 10 percent faster Super NES. Most of the games would have broken. They would have run at a different clock rate, and things would have melted down.”

He further on goes to talk about the advancement in game development and scalability of games:

“The way we do software development today makes it possible. How can a PC game run on a laptop and on a Titan X? How is that possible? Well, because developers over the last 15 years-plus have figured out how to make their games scale with hardware. So it’s not rocket science to think, ‘Well, gee, if I have an Xbox, can’t I have a more powerful Xbox? And isn’t that better than just one that’s a different color or a little smaller?’ I think that this idea is fantastic.”

Phil Spencer Regarding Xbox One Project Scorpio Pricing

Phil Spencer also talked about the pricing of the Xbox One Project Scorpio, something that everyone is wondering about and this is what he had to say:

We’re going to come out on a price that we think is fair for the product that we build and the customers will tell us as they always do. I call it premium because I don’t want people to get confused that somehow Scorpio is the thing that is going to take over the Xbox line.”

Whatever the case may be, Xbox One Project Scorpio will be a premium product for a niche market and it will not be something everyone will be interested in. Spencer has also made it clear that the Xbox One S will be the console that will be selling in higher numbers. This is another clue regarding the placement of the Xbox One Project Scorpio.
