Rumor has it that the constant leaks about the PlayStation Neo, or as we now know it, PlayStation 4 Pro, forced Microsoft to announce Project Scorpio early.
Windows Central is reporting that they have heard from a “highly credible source,” about the nature of Project Scorpio, including much of its tech points.
First of all, it sports the ability to run 4K UWP games available now on PC, natively. 4K versions of Gears of War 4 and Forza Horizon 3 are said to be a part of this.
The report also states Microsoft is planning to have all Scorpio development kits be a “one-stop shop” for all development. The kit is said to allow developers to test the game on different configurations, including an Xbox One-specific mode that runs at the current console’s performance. Games will be able to detect the hardware used to run them, and download the necessary assets accordingly.
It’ll be really interesting to see how this Xbox trumps the PS4 Pro.
