Creative director teases Project CARS 2 PS4 Pro & Scorpio improvements

It's a big year for Xbox. "As far as we can tell, it will be the most powerful console ever created when it launches - unless somebody has an announcement I don't know about".

The original Xbox, Xbox 360, 360 redesign, and Xbox One all had large external power bricks, a design feature Microsoft used to optimise airflow within the console.

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. However, we haven't really seen yet just how powerful the Xbox One Scorpio is. With six teraflops of processing power, the ability to stream and capture gameplay in 4K at 60 frames per second, and an independent power supply, the Scorpio does indeed look good. Considering the Xbox One now caps out at 720p and 30FPS this is a significant upgrade. This makes it possible to not only watch streaming services like Netflix, which is something the S already does, but also will allow for recording games at high resolution and making that leap into PC-quality graphics. 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.

Microsoft's E3 conference is now set for June 11.

At the moment, Microsoft has maintained silence regarding the Xbox Scorpios specifications, but it is speculated that Microsoft will likely reveal its PS4 Pro competitor at this years E3 event.

These latest revelations paint a picture of a beast of a console, and we should expect to get more information about Project Scorpio at E3 in June.
