Microsoft Considering Subscription Service for Single-Player Games

According to him people that buy an Xbox One Project Scorpio might already have a PS4 or Xbox and might want something to play third party games on. Does he have two TVs in the same room, or does he have to take Scorpio into the basement for 1080p and run back up to his 4K setup while trying to remember what the resolution looked like?

The 2017 Xbox Project Scorpio features new 8 custom x86 cores and it is an equitable 31-percent increase in speed over Microsoft's current Xbox One hardware.

For this objective, Microsoft prepared a tech demo with a woman, apparently a scientist, in a steampunk laboratory, comparing the output differences between the base Xbox One and Project Scorpio.

One of the most unique things about Project Scorpio is that it'll run all existing Xbox One games better without any kind of upgrades, downloads or updates.

As with the Pro, the console's increased power will be most evident if you have a 4K TV, but you will still see improvements in terms of texture quality and object complexity if you have an ordinary TV.

What if you don't download the 4K upgrades?

The price of Microsoft's Xbox Project Scorpio has been spotted online with a price tag of 399.99 Euros or around $436.

Is this just a tech demo or a hint at a new game?

Despite his confidence in the single-player experience, however, Spencer is unwilling to make promises, saying only that the idea of "put [ting] story-based games into the Xbox Game Pass business model" would help developers to create games over longer periods, but remains something that is only being thought about for the present. However, it's also cheaper than what many were expecting considering how much powerful Project Scorpio is supposed to be. Migrating console pricing up towards the level of a higher end PC is not likely the goal, but the specs say otherwise to we'll probably be sticking with $500.

On the other hand, the Xbox Project Scorpio could have a huge problem when it rolls out around the holiday 2017.

We expect devs to do some fantastic things with Microsoft's new 4K Xbox, and Microsoft will no-doubt showcase some impressive surprises at E3 2017.
