Microsoft revealed the details on the specs for the new Xbox Project Scorpio console to exclusively EuroGamer. Microsoft has touted this new console as the “world’s most powerful console.”

Here’s a look at the specs, compared to Xbox One and PS4 Pro.

The Xbox Project Scorpio is available to run games at native 4K, 60 FPS. EuroGamer shared some footage of Forza running on the system in 4K.

“To me, [4K] means a very specific set of things. It’s a lot more than delivering than those eight-million-plus pixels to the screen while playing games,” says Kevin Gammill, Group Program Director of the Xbox Core platform. “It’s about delivering those pixels with 4K assets, so they look great. It’s about delivering those pixels with HDR and wide colour gamut fidelity. It’s about delivering those pixels with no loss of frame-rate compared to the 1080p version of that title – that’s super-important to us. Spatial audio adds to the immersive experience as well: to truly land that gameplay experience, it’s not just about what you see, but what you hear.”

The new system on chip for Project Scorpio is developed in partnership with AMD.

In addition to allowing developers to improve games on Scorpio, playing non-Scorpio updated games on the Project Scorpio has improvements too. The system itself provides a smoother performance and reduced screen-tearing.

“We’ve taken the approach that we do with 360 [games] on Xbox One, where you will never see a torn frame, because we have enough performance there to ensure that.”

Alongside this, Microsoft plans for a GameDVR for Scorpio which should record and capture gameplay at 4K60FPS resolution, alongside with overall faster loading up and system performance.

We should note that Microsoft says this new console is a “premium console” for high end users. Pricing wise, it will be priced higher than the PlayStation 4 Pro. EuroGamer estimates the console may cost $499 at launch. It is expected to launch in Holiday 2017.

    I honestly think this will be 500 dollars

    • Designedcoma

      I do to as well. I can live without 4K honestly..yes it looks awesome..but I will live with 1080p.

      • lunator100hd .

        1080p will be so outdated in 2-3 years.

        • GinsuVictim

          I’m still playing games that run at 224 x 288, so I think I’ll be fine with 1080p for a while longer.

          • lunator100hd .

            You can play games that run at 1 x 1 if you want , i dont care, 1080p will not be the standard resolution for much longer, pc players already laugh at console players who are stuck with it.

          • Designedcoma

            I am sure 1080p will be fine. Seeing that 360p is still available and there really is no standard. Either the game/movie/video or whatever is rendered in the resolution of choice. The playback device simply scales to that resolution codec. I thought DVD’s would be done by now. Being Blu Ray players were to be the standard. Now, you can get your movie either in just BR, or BR+DVD and..BR+DVD+Digital. So it will fine and still here 2-3 years from now

          • BradyAlucard

            Lol, 4k in modern gaming requires SLI’s, so those PC dudes “laughing” at me invested at least $1000 into their rigs. 1080p is still the gold standard.

          • lunator100hd .

            Considering how fast computer-technology evolves, 1080p will be the poor man’s choice for gaming, im calling it right now, 2-3 years.

          • BradyAlucard

            I think it’ll take longer than that TBH. 4k won’t become standard for a while.

          • ccrows

            I wouldn’t be surprised if you had a table top or cabinet of that in your house… πŸ˜‰

          • GinsuVictim

            I think you already know I do.

          • ccrows

            It was more if you had a “dedicated cabinet” but I believe I remember what you said now… πŸ˜‰

          • GinsuVictim

            Yeah, not a dedicated cabinet, just a MAME cabinet. I’m about to upgrade the computer inside for better “Ninja Baseball Batman” gameplay.

    • Element115Will

      Oh really? Considering if you read the article, it said $499 -_-.

      • BradyAlucard

        NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    • Filux4

      I though it would be more like 800$. 500$ or even 600$ is no big deal actually.

  • I wish cod champs would be played on this

  • GinsuVictim

    I’ll stick with my Xbox One (I just bought it in Sept), but it’s nice for those who want it.

    • Ult1mateCarnage

      smart thinking

    • BradyAlucard

      HOW DOES THAT NATIVE 900P TASTE NERD GUNGA

      • GinsuVictim

        Good enough. You gotta remember, I was stuck in last gen for way too long. I have a decent PC for when I want better graphics.

        • BradyAlucard

          I know, I was just kidding (even though I disagree about PC but doesn’t matter). In all seriousness I prefer 1080p all day every day until the Scorpio brings out native 4k.

  • Mick

    Damn, guess I ain’t a high end gamer ?

  • PDX Guitar Freak

    I read an interview not long ago with a Microsoft exec that said “Don’t buy the Scorpio unless you have a 4K TV.” I guess they realized that was extremely poor marketing on their end LOL. However, it does make me a bit wary of whether it will be worth upgrading when I don’t own a 4K TV… I suppose this could be my excuse to go 4K all around (and get the TV too), but I don’t want to spend the money if the upgrade is somewhat negligible. Any thoughts from the more technically savvy folks out there?

  • hungryandrew

    I’ve read that there will be little to no exclusives. Also that major developers told Microsoft until they see a large install base, t b ey will not spend money to solely develop a game from the ground up for the Scorpio, yet instead they will port over the ps4 pro version, meaning the Scorpio game will not utilize the full power of the Scorpio.

    • Beast Mode

      Youre probably wrong and wrote all that for no reason

      • hungryandrew

        No I’m not wrong other readers posted same comments on ign site stating articles saying the same thing, you fanboy.

    • jt3z

      You’ve read BS lol.

    • BradyAlucard

      Exclusives/bottlenecking/price are what I’m worried about. I’m not buying it day one if it’s $500, I don’t think that’d be very smart because that price point was the reveal price of the console and it did not resonate well.

    wow it’s not a piece of shit.

  • Qaotik

    Still no where near as powerful as my PC

    • jt3z

      Can you get a 4k pc for less than 500$?

      • Qaotik

        Will every game be able to run at past 60 at 4K, emulate other games, get on the Internet, have keyboard and mouse, have mod support, and not require pay to play online?

        • ccrows

          Still not less than $500… πŸ˜‰

          • Qaotik

            Too bad it’ll get replaced by another console when all I have to do is replace a part or 2

          • ccrows

            Listen, I used to be a PC gamer myself, don’t take it personally. lol

            Seriously though, most of my friends are all console gamers, and I rather just stay connected with them… πŸ™‚

          • Qaotik

            Tbh, I just say this to talk shit because I own a PC. I actually play that and on a PS4

          • ccrows

            Glad you brought that up, do you have a PS4 or PS4 Pro?…

          • Qaotik

            No, just the standard console

          • ccrows

            Eh, I was hoping you said the Pro. I heard that the Pro had problems playing some games like BO3. I’m just thinking about any potential problems that the Scorpio might have… *shrugs*

          • BradyAlucard

            Oh…

        • BradyAlucard

          You completely dodged his question.

          • Qaotik

            I was answering a question with a question and being a trolling prick, but I’ll respond to this.

            Emulators aren’t technically illegal. The ROMs are, but the code to run them is not and consoles typically don’t come with some forms of compatibility anymore. So it’s a big plus, especially when consoles move on and production of those games stop.

            PC is just superior, no doubt about it. Sure my machine costed about 1.3K, but it’ll last, serve multiple purposes, play a variety more games at higher quality, no xbox live membership nonsense, and plenty of deals that constantly go on. The best part is when it’s time to upgrade, it’ll only be a part or 2 instead of ditching an old platform and it’s games. It’s an all in one package

          • BradyAlucard

            When I say emulation is illegal, ROM’s are implied. The entire argument is tossed out the window once ROM’s are mentioned. I don’t think it’s an advantage over consoles because they have to play them through unconventional means.

            Objectively in hardware, yes, but everything else is up to subjectivity and personal preference, which is why I find consoles superior (i.e. games). I choose to spend all that money on physical copies, Xbox Live/PlayStation Plus (“free” games mostly for me), not because I have to but that I like what’s offered.

            Luckily you’re being respectful about it and you’re not shoehorning your subjective preferences on people like the “PC mustard race” does.

      • BradyAlucard

        Capable? Yes. Most of the time at 60FPS? No.

    • Group_935

      Instead of making a *ick size contest, you should be happy that high end consoles will benefit high end PCs because the developers will have more options.

      • Qaotik

        That’s a problem with optimization. Doom 4 is flawless on each platform and even more spectacular on PC

    • BradyAlucard

      That’s not the point.

  • ccrows

    “Hard Drive – 1TB”

    ^ That has my interest the most on what the initial price is going to be.

    I think $500 is going to be the price as well, but anything more and the size of the HDD is what’s gonna get bashed the most by the community…

    • BradyAlucard

      I’d be waiting for a price drop personally.

      • ccrows

        That depends on when this gets released, which we’ll find out officially at E3. If we can get this out before Black Friday, then most likely it will be cheaper.

        Stores can’t lower the price on the console, but they can give out free gift cards if you buy the console from them… πŸ™‚

  • seems alright

  • OH YEAH BABY! WORLD WAR 2 BOOTS ON THE GROUND CALL OF DUTY AND A XBOX ONE WITH 12GB OF RAM?!? FUCK YEAH! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8bde8740da32b06c30cab164596c2e68c3550a5d9c5c0a50a81646b10cf2a8d1.jpg

    • ccrows

      Patience grasshoppa, let’s see how all of this plays out first… πŸ™

      • I ain’t waiting bitch!

        • ccrows

          Yeah I noticed your aggression with wanting to turn my cow friend into a burger below.

          Anywhoo, let’s see the official price, and the day 1 problems first. There’s always day 1 problems… (with both consoles and COD)

          • Alright fine I’ll wait til at least E3 then I’ll make my decision plus I’m actually going so I’m gonna get my hands on it!

          • ccrows

            Cool, now leave the cow alone… lol

          • But he’s up for a tasty good time lol

  • Matt84

    What does the Project Scropio look like? a Big Box again?
    2x the size of PS4 Pro? idk

    • jt3z

      No they have said it will be compact.(DF aka the ppl who revealed the specs said we would be surprised by how compact it is). My guess is it will be close to the Xbox One S. No power brick either.

    • ccrows

      Who cares if it’s a big box? I actually hope that it’s a big box because I don’t want to hear the fan.

      That’s what drove me nuts about the OG XB1, people complained that it looked too big and ugly. However it’s never gonna leave your house until you sell it, and most people have it in a cabinet anyway. (Looks to me don’t matter with consoles)

      Finally, as somebody who had 2 360 RRODs, I just want it to work and run cool…

      • BradyAlucard

        I think the OG PS4 looks better than the OG Xbox One, and that’s because I find that more sleek consoles are more impressive, especially in looks and overall architecture, but now I think that’s reversed quite a bit with the Xbox One S and PS4 Slim (even though I think people exaggerated about the Slim’s “ugliness”, I think it looks alright).

        • ccrows

          For me, when I buy technology, looks is pretty far down on my list of importance.

          AKA I’d buy an uglier “flagship” phone with the same specs if I can have a removable battery.

          For consoles, it comes down to what games I prefer, and what my friends are playing. The OG XB could have been twice as big, and I still would have purchased it since it fits my needs.

          Honestly, I could give a rats ass how a console looks. Give me a “chubby console” just as long as the fan is quiet and it doesn’t overheat/RROD… πŸ™‚

          • BradyAlucard

            I agree, but it’s nice to have since I don’t leave my consoles in cabinets. lol It’s not all I worry about of course, games are the most important thing to me.

  • BradyAlucard

    Everyone already knew this thing would be a beast. Only thing I’m worried about is that CPU getting bottlenecked like the Pro and $499 wouldn’t be a good enough price for me so I’d have to wait for a price drop.

  • BradyAlucard

    By the way I’m pretty sure every CoD game will run at native 4k/60FPS on Xbox One Scorpio, so that’s a good sign.

    • Source? I think developers still needs to patch the game

      • BradyAlucard

        I wasn’t making an argument, I was making an observation. With the fact that IW ranges between native 1560p and 1800p on PS4 Pro (with 4k checkerboarding), it’s only logical that all CoD’s will be able to do native 4k easily on Scorpio. Depending on what the developers want, of course.

  • Alex Brogan

    if this was 500 dollars thats not even bad.

    • jt3z

      Even 600 wont be bad for the specs but console gamers dont really care as much about specs as PC players so it needs to be priced at console lvls and the highest they should go will be 500$. 400$ would be outstanding bit doubtful

      • ccrows

        I say this as an Xbox fan since the OG XB:

        Scorpio needs to be $500, otherwise it’s gonna get killed for only having 1TB of storage…

        • jt3z

          Agreed. If they want it to sell well enough they need to make it comparable vs the PS4 pro.(Even if its at a loss)

    • BradyAlucard

      I doubt it’ll sell as well as it could at $400. But who am I to judge? I like the specs TBH.

  • Michael Romo

    It’d cost me around $2000 to actually get my money’s worth out of this console. No thanks; I’m fine with my PS4 Pro for now…

  • YourMazzter1

    Do you all think devs would start choosing the XOne Scorpio as it’s leading dev console if everything works as well as Microsoft is saying
