Five ways your Xbox One and 360 games will be better on Scorpio
The next Xbox, codenamed Project Scorpio, features 100 per cent compatibility with any software that runs on the existing Xbox One console, be it the latest triple-A blockbuster or any one of the hundreds of Xbox 360 titles successfully adapted via Microsoft’s backward compatibility programme.
Everything should run just fine, but more than that, the full power of the Scorpio Engine will be brought to bear on enhancing your existing games. According to the Xbox hardware team, your existing library of games should run smoother, look better and load faster.
It’s a considerable technical achievement because, while the new console is built from the ground up to run all content, certain design decisions were made during the machine’s gestation period that make this task a whole lot harder than it might have been. Put simply – there’s an easier way, exemplified by PlayStation 4 Pro’s technical make-up, and then there’s the more challenging approach – the Scorpio way.
