Game Confirmed By Devs As Xbox Scorpio Launch Title With Native 4K

Game Confirmed By Devs As Xbox Scorpio Launch Title With Native 4K

$50 off and two free games on select Xbox One consoles in addition to savings on Xbox accessories and games, available on December 12. It may have been implied to be the former, however: back in September, Microsoft stated that "any games" launching after Scorpio releases will render natively in 4K.

Speaking with AusGamers, Head of Xbox division Phil Spencer assured fans that they are not trying to compete with high-end PCs in the market in terms of power and Xbox One Scorpio price will be reasonable. If you have a 4K television, waiting for the Scorpio is a no-brainer since the console will allow you to take full advantage of your expensive TV.

But for those who expect many years of high quality of life experiences from the affordable base Xbox One model, this could prove problematic. This console is said to offer true 4K gaming and support for virtual reality games.

With an eight-core CPU, 6 terflops of power and a 320Gb/s of memory bandwidth, it's good to hear that Scorpio won't exactly break the bank. This feature is not expected to be part of the single-player game, however.

Day 3: Save 50 percent on select Xbox One games on Wednesday, Dec. 7. This console can also be used in conjunction with all Xbox peripherals.

Sony may be the talk of the gaming industry this past weekend thanks to the PlayStation Experience event, but Microsoft has a little surprise as well.

What's also interesting is that the game will run at native 4K on Project Scorpio, Microsoft's next gaming console set for release during the holidays of 2017.

This deal works with all the Xbox One S bundles with 500, 1TB, and 2TB HDD models. Perhaps remasters are on the cards as seen with Halo Wars 1?

Although it's nothing too definitive right now, it's promising that Crackdown 3 will be among one of the many great titles Microsoft has planned for next year.
