Is Microsoft's Project Scorpio Really The Best Console Ever?
Microsoft just revealed all of the specs for Project Scorpio and it is the beefiest console out there. It's not just the specs that are attractive in Project Scorpio but also some of its amazing features. Microsoft's newest console and its plan to build the most powerful one ever has been a successful undertaking, but do real-world users really care as much as they reckon they should?
Project Scorpio And Its Impressive Specs
Project Scorpio is great and amazing - and there might even be a shortage of superlatives before anyone can get started to describe how powerful the Scorpio is. That being said, no one thinks Project Scorpio will come out on top in the race toward becoming the best console to date. The newest console from Microsoft will appeal to gamers who care about the specs but not to everyone else.
Project Scorpio will have a custom CPU with eight cores clocked at 2.3GHz, 12 GB of GDDR5 RAM, 1TB 2.5-inch hard drive and can read 4k UHD Blu-ray. Bigger, however, does not always mean better, and this is also one of the reasons why the PS4 Pro didn't do well than the PS4 despite the console being better in specs. Scorpio is also lacking in the games and exclusives department - which apparently plays a huge role in the gamers' console choice. It is true that its launch titles are good - Red Dead Redemption 2 and Forza 7 to name a few - but there are a lot of great exclusives coming to the PS4.
Nintendo Switch is also the perfect example of a console that does well without the need for better specs and bigger memory. Every gamer thinks about how much fun he or she will be getting from a console first and everything else comes after. So to appeal to our pragmatism, Project Scorpio needs to offer its target market more.
Project Scorpio The Best Console Ever?
Project Scorpio is the most powerful console ever but it being the best is highly debatable judging from the information revealed so far. Whether it will dethrone the PS4 in terms of sales remains to be seen but many are betting it is going to be extremely difficult. Bloody even, as the console wars start again on E3 2017 when the entirety of Project Scorpio is finally revealed.
