E3 2016 ARTICLE: Scorpio Not For Those Without a 4K TV, Says Phill Spencer


Microsoft announced Project Scorpio—a more powerful version of Xbox One—that, according to Head of Xbox Phil Spencer, was designed specifically with 4K televisions in mind.
 In an interview with Eurogamer, Spencer said those who don't have a 4K display should instead buy an Xbox One S, "because Scorpio is not going to do anything for you. Scorpio is designed as a 4K console, and if you don't have a 4K TV, the benefit we've designed for, you're not going to see."

Phil Spencer went on to emphasize that fans can still opt for the more powerful model when it releases next year; however, they won't see the benefits until they purchase a 4K TV. "Clearly, you can buy Scorpio, and if and when you decide you want to buy a 4K television to take advantage of the increased performance, obviously the console will be ready for you," he said.

Naturally, Scorpio will be more expensive than Xbox One S, so Microsoft wanted to ensure there's a budget-friendly option for consumers as well. "I would say, price point is important, compatibility is critically important," he added. "We looked at 4K... talked to creators about the work they were doing on PC in order to hit a true 4K gaming experience, and six teraflops is what we needed to go hit, so we designed for that."

Reports also suggest that the XboxOne S model will run everything better from the dashboard to games with the bit of extra processing power that was put in the smaller version, for an over all better Xbox experience.
