Project Scorpio is Going to Run Microsoft Games at 4K Resolution

Microsoft Studio Publishing's general manager Shannon Loftis confirmed that all first party Xbox One Project Scorpio titles will be able to run at native 4K.

Choice seems to be a word that will accurately describe this current console generation as both Microsoft and Sony are in the process of releasing new hardware models for its consoles. Fans have already seen the Xbox One S alongside a new PlayStation 4 Slim and soon upgraded variants like the recently revealed PlayStation 4 Pro will arrive. Since Sony's recent reveal event, Microsoft has not hesitated in pushing back with more news about is upcoming console, Project Scorpio, and how that system will be the world's most powerful console when it launches.

The publishing general manager for Microsoft Studios, Shannon Loftis, continued this trend in a recent interview, confirming that first party titles are made for Xbox One Project Scorpio will run at native 4K. This piece of news, at this time, only affects first party Microsoft games and it's unclear on what third party titles will be doing once the console arrive on store shelves.

The biggest difference between Project Scorpio and PlayStation 4 Pro is that Sony is launching its upgraded hardware later this year, while Microsoft gives its development team another whole year to work. While it's easy to assume Sony could have matched Microsoft if the Pro launched next year, the release date for PlayStation VR and the need for hardware to run it appeared to be a deciding factor.

Microsoft was happy to slide in in order to take advantage, with Sony making a number of perceiving missteps over the past few weeks. The head scratching began when Sony revealed that its new Pro console will not include 4K Blu ray playback, something that Microsoft made sure fans knew the Xbox One S could do. More PR damage was done when Bethesda revealed that Sony decided to reject mod use for Fallout 4 and The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim Special Edition. Again, Microsoft was eager to swoop in and remind fans that all mods are available on the Xbox One.
