Project Scorpio console will feature 4K game capture and streaming — Microsoft Xbox

Project Scorpio console will feature 4K game capture and streaming — Microsoft Xbox”

"As we prepare to launch Project Scorpio this holiday, bringing the most powerful console ever made to the Xbox One family of devices, we continue to make platform improvements to connect the growing community of players on Xbox Live and add to a robust and diverse portfolio of games across Xbox One and Windows 10".

More information surrounding Project Scorpio was released today, giving us a better idea of what Microsoft's new console is going to be.

Beam, Microsoft's streaming service, runs public 4K test streams, so it's unsurprising that the company will be looking to dabble in 4K Game DVR for Project Scorpio.

The internal power supply unit (PSU) would fall in line with last summer's redesigned Xbox One S, which was the first Xbox console to use one after the original Xbox, Xbox 360 and original Xbox One all came with external power bricks. Considering the Xbox One now caps out at 720p and 30FPS this is a significant upgrade. On top of 4K gaming, the new console will also feature the ability to stream things such as Netflix in 4K, something the Xbox One S is doing now, and it will tack on the ability to stream and encode 4K, 60 frames per second video.

"I like our E3 show being about games", Spencer said. So there's a balance there. "It's a great opportunity for us".

Like many retailers, the company is facing the public's shift from department stores and less mall traffic. The Dallas-based retailer reported a 6.1 percent drop in second quarter revenues, totaling $1.4 billion.

With the Nintendo Switch release behind us, the next big console launch we have to look forward to is nearly certainly Microsoft's Project Scorpio.

The Project Scorpio product page on the Microsoft Store doesn't allow users to preorder the upcoming console.

If that's true - aside from being a huge win for Microsoft - then it would be a substantial leap over console hardware now available on the market.
