From Xbox Studios publishing general manager Shannon Loftis we are told that the Xbox Scorpio will run games at naive 4K unlike the PS4 which will run at upscaled 4K. In a recent interview she said “any games we’re making that we’re launching in the Scorpio time frame, we’re making sure they can natively render at 4K.” Which takes major shots at the recent PS4 announcement The new Xbox (code named Scorpio) will be made available from Holiday 2017 according to the web page. No information regarding pricing has been released but we suspect it would be around the $500 mark as Microsoft refers to it as a premium device, hopefully Microsoft surprise us and have a similar price point to the PS4 or even cheaper.
