The Xbox One Scorpio useful in 1080p?

Microsoft axes  all its communication around its future Xbox on a particular resolution: the 4K. Yes, but what about 1080p? Will players who have not yet had the means to invest in a 4K television will be deprived of the delights of the Scorpio? In a nutshell, is the next Microsoft console worth a “simple” FHD screen?

These questions were posed to Phil Spencer by the British newspaper The Guardian in an exclusive interview with the head of the Xbox division. And if its answer is perhaps lacking a bit of spice, it still allows to dispel some areas of shadow on the cordial understanding provided between Xbox one scorpio.

As we know, Microsoft’s next generation will be compatible with resolutions lower than Ultra High Definition, and in particular capable of managing the 1080p on the fly. It remains to be seen whether the difference in power between Xbox One classic and Xbox Scorpio is really relevant on a Full HD TV.

The resolution at work for 1080p without any concession?

Obviously without any detailed comparison, it is difficult to say anything definitively, however Phil Spencer wants to be reassuring, players will be able to benefit from the Scorpio whatever the resolution of their TV.

“I think Scorpio is made for customers who want to have the best version of console games, whether they have a 1080 or 4K TV. I’ve a Scorpio at home and I have switched it from a 1080p TV to a 4K TV and vice versa. If you connect a Scorpio on a 1080p TV you will see the difference. I can tell you”.

What the director of Microsoft Studios added: “You’ll see games originally released on Xbox One, which will run better on the Scorpio with the best CPU/GPU couple and things like the resolution that Halo uses. You will realize that the game often runs – or even all the time – in better resolution. And if developers work specifically for Scorpio, then there will be a lot of margin, to do something great.”

In other words, the Scorpio will be well at home in both 4K and full HD. This is good news for players with Full HD tiles, who will surely see their games benefit from a better treatment, and a more stable framerate than the 4K enthusiasts.
