Microsoft Clarifies Xbox Scorpio Frame Rate/Fidelity Stance

His answer, in this particular instance, was a definitive no.

A question was raised about Microsoft putting a cap on the FPS, to which Ybarra replied, "No, there isn't", indicating that developers are free to choose how well their game performs on the upcoming system including cutscenes, overall gameplay, and online multiplayer.

YBarra replied that there was no fps parity in place by saying, "No, there isn't".

The big benefit is that they're free to explore how good of a game they can make with a system that at the moment has undefined limits in the public eye, which could make for titles that look fantastic compared to, say, a PC counterpart. "We have no requirements limiting framerate or fidelity", he wrote.

The Xbox One and the Xbox Scorpio will be part of the same ecosystem, playing the same games, so there's been speculation that because of this reason, the Scorpio's technology will be forcibly held back to stay in line with a four-year-old system.

@The_CrapGamer Developer choice, but as a developer I would bet no one chooses different framerates for mp games ever.

As with the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Pro, all Xbox One games will work on the Scorpio. It is a situation that is similar to PS4 and PS4 Pro. However, like Shannon Loftis from Microsoft Studio says, there is no developer who will choose to allow Project Scorpio players have a better frame rate in multiplayer games.

It will be one hell of a run with the Scorpio, not only will there be actual competition to PCs other than exclusive titles, you will be able to actually compare PC and console graphics with Microsoft's latest behemoth.

The Xbox Scorpio is the upcoming beast of a console which looks to completely change the console genre.

We can expect to find out more Scorpio details at E3 next month.
