1hr IGN interview with Phil -



Summary -

-Gamepass in the works for 2/3 years. Handfull of games will go out every month. Not much. Cant control 3rd party offcourse. But doesnt want to feel like a trial of the game

-E3 change to Sunday was because to give the news coming out of it more room to breath.

-Pre E3 Scorpio reveal. No plans set in stone yet. But difficult to put everything into the show and the show is more about games then hardware.

-System on chip of Scorpio they got back last October. Ported over Xbox One platform in November and start giving first party teams alpha versions. Scorpio will look "premium" but will be part of the "family" looks wise.

-Devs can do what they want with Scorpio graphics wise. Liked how Horizon Zero Dawn used the extra power of Pro for 1080 screens.

-VR is still a area of inovation and growth. Still thinks Windows is the right place for it atm.
Still wants to VR on console (more when then if) but first wants alot of devs have hands on with VR first and PC is better for that to find out how to make it perfect.

-No plans for a handheld really. Thinks mobiles are a good platform for that also. But never say never.

-Talks about why he says "premium" for Scorpio. Most people will still buy a S but Scorpio is for the Premium customer. People who know what a teraflop is and 4K. Calls it Premium so that people know its not gonna take over the Xbox One line.

-People have a right to voice their concern about first party woes lately. Since he took the job over he wants to "Unfair word. But rework the first party abit" and wants back to the core first. They are at this moment and gonna build from that more. Still think the first party games that are coming this year are great "PR head" he says haha.

-Learned from announcing games to soon. Depends on the game also. Sea of Thieves needed to be announced earlier because of how the game works and needed player feedback on it and will grow over time like a Minecraft game. Intrested in game like Shadow of War where they announce the game and its out couple of months later. But just depends of what kinda game it is.

-No deal with Remedy atm.

-Release date for Voodoo Vince will be announced next week.

So...

- Scorpio is niche, probably only account for a small number of overall sales like PS4 Pro

- Scorpio is still part of the XBO family, maybe a name like "Xbox One Elite"?

- Similar design to existing XBO family, I'm guessing a big bully black XBO S design

- Mixed Reality is for all XBO console's, 1080p VR on standard console, 1440p on Scorpio?

For any Irish forumites interested in expensive gamepads I just thought I'd mention that Smyths are selling the Elite controller for €120.

I have no idea why you think VR is coming to original Xbox's, and although you say similar design Phil did say it has to look different to the S and Original X1.

- Microsoft confirmed on Tuesday that Mixed Reality was coming to the "Xbox One family, including Project Scorpio"

https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperi ... ing-month/

"Our plan is to bring mixed reality content to the Xbox One family of devices, including Project Scorpio, in 2018."



- Phil said something along the lines of Scorpio's design being similar to XBO and XBO S, but with a more "premium" look.

I think that was just a slip up, X1 is not powerful enough for VR. Also I read that as windows 10 and Xbox Scorpio and next xbox after that not going backwards.

When describing scorpios look he didn't reference Anything other than branding. Why you were listening to an Xbox podcast is confusing enough as it is! :lol:

I how you lie and argue against me even when its something positive about Xbox. Microsoft are backing me up here, it's been CONFIRMED.

https://www.neowin.net/news/microsoft-t ... this-month

Update: Microsoft has confirmed to Neowin that both the Xbox One and the Xbox One S will receive mixed reality support.


1. If standard PS4 can run VR then so can standard XBO. Remember this is Mixed Reality too, no need to render entire scenes.

2. If XBO achieves lifetimes sales of 70m, and Scorpio accounts for only 10% of that, why bother trying to support VR for such a small potential userbase?

It's not a matter of trying to support VR, the VR headsets will be compatible, up to dev's to make games run on PC and Scorpio, it's not MSVR!

Microsoft will facilitate making VR games work on Windows 10 and Xbox, not a million miles away from what they are doing now.

Windows Mixed Reality is a platform that will run on the following:

Windows 10 PCs
Xbox One
Xbox One S
Xbox One Scorpio

It's up to developers to support this, and on PC there will be minimum spec requirements. However Phil said "no one left behind", so I can't see Scorpio having any exclusives, regardless of whether they're VR games or not.

Quote me on this, if VR comes to Scorpio it won't be on X1, take that to the bank.

I'll be trading in my physical copy of Witcher 3 and buying the GOTY download, as a cheap way of getting the season pass content.

And Rise of the Tomb Raider Season Pass for £5 is a great bargain.

Woah, gooseberry fool. I just had a horrible moment. I noticed my "Ready to install" list suddenly had 240 games on it. Then I noticed my available storage had increased by about 2TB, as if one of my drives had been wiped. Urgent reboot, with much holding of breath. It's fine now.
