Microsoft’s Xbox One Scorpio has been the center of a lot of talk recently after it emerged that some leaked documents were acquired by Digital Foundry who then stated that the Scorpio might not be a true 4K console and would rely on upscaling resolution . Furthermore Phil Spencer also went on to say that he had just played his first game on the Scorpio, and that it looked great.

Many of us expect the Scorpio to be released in the upcoming months , and while we already know that Xbox One’s Scorpio will be way more powerful than the PS4 in terms of specs , one dev however thinks that the Scorpio is going to be far better than its counterpart the Pro

Thomas Mahler, a developer on the former Xbox One exclusive, Ori and the Blind Forest went on to a NeoGAF thread on Phil Spencer to offer his thoughts and opinions on the confusion which surrounds the console currently . He said ,Scorpio isn’t just some incremental step-up, it’s “a full-blown next-gen machine” as opposed to the PS4 Pro, which he called a “half-assed upgrade.”

However he was also quick to point out that it is critical that investing in marketing was critical to the Scorpio’s success . The Scorpio should not just be viewed as an upgrade to the Xbox One , I know that it has no exclusives of its own , but if the reports are to be believed the console packs significant “juice” to be called a mere upgrade on the existing Xbox One.

Microsoft seems to be leveraging all its hopes on the Xbox One Scorpio , and it will be interesting to see how the console performs once it is released in the latter half of this year.

So Do you believe that the Xbox One Scorpio is a “full Blown Next Gen console” let us know by commenting in the comments section below.

    PC gamer here, You do know all those Xbox BC games are on PC with better
    graphics and frame rates. At least PS4 has new games early 2017 like
    Gravity rush 2, Yakuza 0, Persona 5, Kingdom Hearts 2.8, Nier Automata,
    Tales of Berseria, Nioh, Horizon Zero Dawn. Why do you think PS4 has
    sold 55 million and Xbox one has sold 26 million. I will tell you why ?
    It is because PC gamers can play Xbox one games on PC.
    Hasn’t the most underpowered consoles like PS1, PS2, PS3, PS4 outsold
    all the strongest consoles Like Sega Dreamcast, N64, GameCube, Wii, Wii
    U, Xbox, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Sony has nothing to worry about. if a
    PS3 which was underpowered, had bad ports, bad frame rates, bad
    resolutions from third part games ended up outselling Xbox 360 in 2013.
    History has already repeated itself. Sony sells worldwide. Xbox sells
    only to Americans.
