Microsoft Says Scorpio Will Not Have Better Framerates For Regular Xbox One Games

Fans have been trying to figure out exactly what the Scorpio and all its teraflops are capable of, trying to understand a narrative as to why people will want to upgrade to a expensive Xbox next year.


If you were thinking buying the new Xbox One Scorpio next year so that its 6 teraflops of power would give you 60fps in all your Xbox One games, well then think again, because the framerate will be locked to match what the game can do on the normal Xbox One console for competitive online reasons the game will have to run at the same framerate on both consoles, the only thing the 6 teraflops will give you on the game is more pixels packing on the screen, so you will need to invest in an 4K-TV for sure to see any improvement.

Microsoft Tried Partnering With Nintendo and Sony Before Making Xbox --- And both said a big NOOOOO!

Before Microsoft began developing the first Xbox, the company went to both Nintendo and Sony, to see if either were interested in partnering to release a console; both companies turned the offer down!


Recently, Microsoft shown off two new Xbox consoles they have coming out, one soon and one next year, but going back in time it seems Microsoft really never wanted to be in the 'hardware' business, they wanted to just support an existing gaming company, and offer network, design, and of course games to a new partner, if you can remember Microsoft infact had tiny bit to do with the SEGA Dreamcast, it was powered by Windows CE and they had development kit for it so people could easy write little games for it, but with Dreamcast dieing, Microsoft...

Announcing two new consoles at E3 would be a 'strange lead-in' to spinning off the Xbox brand, Spencer says.

Recently research group DFC has put out a report that called Microsoft's gaming business the 'ugly step-child.' It wasn't a question of if Microsoft would quit the gaming business, but 'when and how'.


So what do you think now that E3 is long gone by, thinking about how Microsoft announced two news consoles, and also announced that most if not all their Xbox games would be Windows 10 PC also, it almost makes you think why invest in another Xbox, just buy a PC!
