“Games built on Scorpio first will make the same titles look like old laptop games on the Xbox One,” said Bogdan Iliesiu of Angry Mob Games speaking to GamingBolt.
Iliesiu, who is is one of the lead developers behind indie title Brawlout, noted that games specifically built from the ground up for the Scorpio will benefit the most.
“Sure, it’s usually easy to pump up the graphics, to take advantage of the extra processing power. If the games are designed for the Xbox One, they’ll look great on Scorpio.”
“If it’ll be the other way around, and the games will be pushed to the limits, to look amazing on the Scorpio first, it’ll probably feel like playing on an old laptop, when playing that game on the Xbox One.”
Not much is known about the upcoming Project Scorpio other than it reportedly will offer increased graphical fidelity over the Xbox One while still offering full backwards-compatibility.
The console is slated to arrive some time during Holiday 2017.
