    Microsoft Studio's publishing general manager, Shannon Loftis, has made an announcement that all Microsoft-developed games for the upcoming codename Xbox Scorpio will run at a native 4K resolution.

    This news comes off the tailwind of the PS4 Pro reveal, where Sony's upcoming "4K Ready" console is set to release this November, and be able to play games in upscaled 4K resolution, though a small few games will indeed run at native 4K. The following quote comes from SCEA (Sony Computer Entertainment America) president, Andrew House.

    The Xbox Project Scorpio is slated to release sometime during the Holiday season of 2017.

    So the new thing is updated versions of existing consoles, it seems...
    New 3DS, PS4 Pro, Xbox One Scorpio...

    What next, NX is just a New Wii U, where the GamePad actually is portable?

    Now that I think about it, NX could be a New Wii U. I don't know if they still think this, but they said originally NX would go along with the Wii U, and it's not meant to completely supplant it (the new Zelda game is coming to Wii U and NX after all). Basically Nintendo was doing the upgraded console thing before Sony and Microsoft jumped into it, dating back to 3DS -> New 3DS in late 2014 (Japan distribution before US got it). Also something I recently learned, Nintendo removed the headphone jack before Apple, the GBA SP. Hmmm.

    Project Scorpio is not an Xbox One, it's an entirely new console. It may well not be backwards compatible with XB1 or 360. The Xbox One S is Microsoft's updated XB1.

    It really isn't a new thing, it's been happening one way or another since the 8-bit days.

    One thing's for sure, they won't call it a Wii U again. That name bombed horribly.

    Can't wait to see my 4K graphics as a powerpoint because they won't pack enough power in the thing for it to be close to a PC.

    MS could very well make the games run natively at 4k, whether they're any good because of compromises is another thing.

    They also said that the Scorpio is not the successor to the Xbox one, but will exist along side it as part of an ongoing evolution that will no longer fit the console generation model.

    So, this means that people with the base model of the ps4 and xbox I will end up with games that run like hyrule Warriors for the o3ds.

    PR fluff.

    Did the same with the 360 at launch. All games 720p min, eventually made exceptions, eventually dropped it. Expect no difference here.

    They just bundled the audio out port with the power port, and sold a separate audio adapter cable, which should have came bundled with the system, but wasn't.

    What CPU/GPU/ram specs will Scorpio have?
