Microsoft Xbox Scorpio Will Support Xbox 360 Backward Compatibility (MSFT)

Microsoft stock

Microsoft Corporation is building Xbox Scorpio, which is deemed to be the most powerful console ever made by the company. The Xbox Scorpio, scheduled to arrive at the end of next year, will feature 6 teraflops of GPU delivering a premier gaming experience including true 4K gaming and high-fidelity virtual reality. According to a report from The Christian Daily, Mike Ybarra, director of program management for Xbox, told fans that the Xbox Scorpio will support the Xbox 360 Backward Compatibility program.

Xbox 360 Backward Compatibility

Microsoft launched the Xbox 360 Backward Compatibility program last year to bring Xbox 360-exclusive games to the new Xbox One console.

Answering a question from a fan, Ybarra said on Twitter that “360 Backward compatibility will of course work on Scorpio.”

Currently, there are 250 titles under the Xbox 360 Backward Compatibility program. Those titles include games such as “Call of Duty,” “Skyrim,” “Mass Effect,” “Gears of War” and “Blue Dragon.”

In August, the software giant introduced the 2TB Xbox One S early August in select countries for $399. Additionally, the firm launched the Xbox One S in two versions – 500 gigabyte (GB) and 1 terabyte (TB) – at the end of August.

As we reported earlier, there won’t be any Scorpio exclusives. All games running on the Xbox One will work on the new console. The company premiered a wide range of games launching this year and beyond for Xbox One and Windows 10, including a mix of exclusives, blockbusters and independent games.

Microsoft said that the Xbox Scorpio might be the last in the traditional console generation, and is a mid-generation upgrade to the Xbox One.

The Xbox Scorpio will offer eight CPU cores; over 320GB/s of memory bandwidth; six teraflops (TF) of GPU power; 4K gaming support; and VR support. The six teraflops of GPU will deliver a premier gaming experience including true 4K gaming and high-fidelity virtual reality.

The gaming console will offer a great gaming experience, and will allow users to experience gaming in 4K. Reports suggest the device will offer a sizable leap over both the PS4 and PS4 Neo with much better graphical and memory capabilities.

During an interview, Xbox marketing boss Aaron Greenberg said the company sees Project Scorpio as a “premium product,” and it would be “a very high-end product.”

Xbox rival Sony is set to release its most powerful gaming console, PlayStation 4 Pro or PS4 Pro, sometime next month. The PS4 Pro will allow games to run at 4K, and will have a 12-month time window to establish itself before the Xbox Scorpio is launched. The PS4 Pro will support 4K and HDR output. The Xbox Scorpio will be about 50% more powerful than the PS4 Pro. It will feature six teraflops of GPU power, compared to 4.14 flops by the PS4 Pro.

Microsoft Corporation is expected to be launched by the holiday season of 2017. The firm has yet to announce a final release date as well as the price or cost of its most powerful gaming console.

Microsoft posted a 5% drop in its gaming revenue for the quarter ended September 30. The firm attributed the decrease to lower Xbox console revenue offset by higher Xbox software and services revenue.
