Do you have a Full HD TV? Scorpio not for you then
The controversy related to the Scorpio project announced by Microsoft is not silent. The new, more powerful version of the Xbox One is expected to debut in a year and a half, but people are still wondering how to respond to it.
Phil Spencer was asked about this in an interview with Eurogamer. The portal’s editor asked the head of the Xbox brand why fans of the brand should buy the Xbox One S when Scorpio will appear in some time. Spencer replied with the question of what TV the editor had in his home, to which he replied that the standard 1080p.
So you should buy an Xbox One S as Scorpio won’t help you at all. It’s a console designed with 4K in mind, and if you don’t have a 4K TV then you won’t see the benefits. Of course, you can buy a Scorpio and if you buy a 4K TV for it, a more powerful console and its new possibilities will be waiting for you.
So it seems that owners of older TV sets do not have to worry about replacing the console.
Later in the discussion, Spencer ensured that all games will be compatible on all Xbox models, and that exclusive productions will not appear on Scorpio.
