Microsoft show off Project Scorpio HDTV improvements

Author

28 April, 2017

During an exclusive interview with Xbox On, Phil Spencer is back to talk about Xbox Scorpio, the powerful console that Microsoft intends to present again at E3 2017 and launch on the market by the end of 2017. This will be the case in a way that will not only let older HD games play smoothly on the device but also noticeably improve their performance on 1080p and 4K TVs through several new Scorpio technologies. How will a non-patched game look on a 4K display running on Project Scorpio? From left to right: Scorpio 4K native, Scorpio 1080p supersampled at 200 percent, Xbox One 1080p at 200 percent.

Microsoft created them to show video game artists how easily they can create game enhancements in hours by performing a straight port from Xbox One to Project Scorpio. While the difference isn't quite as dramatic, it looks like you'll still enjoy better overall clarity even if you don't upgrade to a 4K TV for Scorpio.

Finally, try disconnecting from Xbox Live from the Wi-Fi settings in order to put the Xbox One into offline mode, then reboot the console.

You'll need to visit Windows Central to get that comparison, but in the image attached you can check differences between Xbox One 1080p, Scorpio 1080p with supersampling from 4K resolution and native 4K resolution.

Baltimore Orioles vs. Boston Red Sox
The Orioles starter escaped a two-out, bases-loaded jam unscathed in the second inning when Ramirez flew out to deep centerfield. Machado ended up making the last out of the game, hitting a popup on a pitch from Craig Kimbrel , who got his seventh save.

Call of Duty: WWII fully revealed with first trailer, screens, game details
We have plenty of information on Call of Duty: WW2, which was revealed earlier today via a livestream. Call of Duty: WWII will be released for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on November 3, 2017 .

Unfortunately, the pictures only represent tech demos, and aren't indicative of what's now being developed in-house by Microsoft or by any other developers who have been given access to Project Scorpio.

There's no word from Microsoft just yet, but we'll keep you updated with any developments so stay tuned. The idea would build on the episodic model used most famously by Telltale Games and last year's Hitman, allowing developers to build upon a stable base provided by an initial release, supported by the funding provided by subscriptions. We still don't know its price, official name or what it looks like, but we expect Microsoft to take the wraps off all of that at E3 2017.

Much of this improvement remains visible when rendered at 1080p.

Reddit user Stefvr claimed to have found another possible fix, with other users claiming this method also worked for them: "After going home, pressing RT and Y straight after it started moving around my pins and kept homescreen alive, still not fading to black anymore".
