Microsoft announces temporary price drop on the Xbox One to $279

If Sony opted to hold off on the unveiling of PlayStation 4.5 at E3 2016, then Microsoft came in swinging, executing an astute one-two punch that confirmed both the Xbox One S and the beefed up, 4K-capable behemoth known as the Project Scorpio.

When Project Scorpio was revealed, there was no doubt that this console would be significantly more powerful compared to Xbox One, but we had no idea how much until now.

In an interview with PC Gamer, Spencer said he's "not about putting content only on console to manipulate Windows gamers to go buy an Xbox". The console is believed to have more RAM and improved memory bandwidth over the Xbox One's 8GB DDR3 as well as an improved CPU. Playstation Neo is expected to have 4.2 teraflop GPU while Project Scorpio has a 6 teraflops GPU.

However, there is a catch that only some of the Xbox One games will run better on Scorpio if they meet certain requirements.

Project Scorpio comes out in the Holidays 2017.

Xbox One S will start at a minimal price of just $299 in the United States, but won't be coming till later this and also available in 500GB.

According to Microsoft developers will require for their games to use dynamic scaling, if they want their games to look better compared to what they look now in current console. It was thought that this could signal Microsoft's intention to bring the full game to the PC, but that now seems unlikely.

So there you have it, folks: don't expect all of your older Xbox One games to get any dramatic boosts while playing on the Xbox Scorpio, especially not native 1080p 60FPS. Let us see what XBOX One S makes the difference than to that of Xbox One.
