Cliff Bleszinski isn’t a fan of Xbox Scorpio, the console that was announced at Microsoft’s E3 2016 press event. According to the man behind Gears of War and LawBreakers, Xbox Scorpio feels like an apology for not making the console powerful enough in the first place.
Even when Project Scorpio is launched next year and given a proper name, gamers still have plenty of time left before the urge to update becomes a need to do so.
Piers Harding-Rolls, director of games research at IHS, compares the Xbox One S move to Sony launching a slimmer PlayStation 3 during the previous console cycle. Confusingly, however, he also said the console is actually for anyone who wants to enjoy any of the graphical advancements. Developers choose to work into their Scorpio games thanks to the unit's six teraflops of GPU power. Of the two, focus is on the 4K gaming angle, one that could very well set the stage for virtual reality gaming.
"And we can be equally as sure that Microsoft will be watching just as intently as it gears up for its own next-gen roll-out", Leadbetter said in a statement.
Project Scorpio will have massive 8-core CPU supplemented with a graphics card of 6 trillion floating point operations per second of power.
