Project Scorpio Dev Kit Showcased In New Video
Project Scorpio already has specs and a launch time frame, but we don’t know what the consumer version of Project Scorpio will look like. Today, a brand new video has emerged showcasing the Project Scorpio dev kit. The video shared by Windows Central’s Jex Corden shows an OLED screen with the FPS and other information.
Microsoft is going to unveil the full console during E3 in June. The goal of the console is to push every game towards 4K quality. There is going to be support for legacy games to upgrade to 4K, a lot like the PS4 does with current games. Everything around the Scorpio is meant to feel more like a PC and less like a console. It’s still going to have a hard getting current Xbox owners to upgrade their Xbox One or Xbox One S to the latest and greatest technology. If it’s only 4K games it’ll be hard to convince users to upgrade solely for that reason.

Project Scorpio’s dev kit looks sexy
The front OLED showing the FPS will reassure you your games are running at the highest frame rates, even when you’re playing a 4K game. Tracking your FPS is something enthusiast often do on their PC, where they’re working to get their systems as fast and powerful as possible.
If Microsoft keeps the Xbox white look with the black bottom, it’ll look beautiful. The only problem is if the dev kit stays in its current state, you’ll need always to lay the Scorpio flat. Many customers have complained the flat laying Xbox One is a pain placing in media cabinets or around the TV. A vertical Xbox will let customers be more flexible with how they house their Xbox.
