Xbox One Project Scorpio and 4K gaming

Also games that will come for Xbox One will be playable on Xbox One S and Project Scorpio.

Furthermore, without a 4K display, Spencer says the new system "won't do anything for you". It's slated for release next year but won't do you much good unless you have a 4K TV.

"Price is critically important", Spencer said. On Monday at the video game conference E3 in Los Angeles they also launched a slimmer version of its Xbox One console. "Clearly, you can buy Scorpio, and if and when you decide you want to buy a 4K television to take advantage of the increased performance, obviously the console will be ready for you".

In a recent interview, Phil Spencer said it won't be the case - Project Scorpio simply won't have any exclusive game in the years to follow and, more importantly, everything will launch for it, even its day one lineup, will be compatible with current Xbox One models.

Spencer suggests the reason why a complete version of Halo 5 likely won't be coming to Windows 10 is becuase rather than have Halo developer 343 industries update the game for PC, it is focusing on what's possible with Halo 6.

The Xbox One S is expected to release this August and has a starting price point of $299.

A Microsoft representative told GameSpot today that the Xbox One S dates listed at Microsoft and other retailers are only "placeholder dates". The console will be available in 3 packages and scale all your games and videos to 4K. "But as we looked at our timing and our design decisions, we focused on some different things that basically became Xbox Play Anywhere".
