Microsoft finally let loose with more details of the guts of the Xbox One X – which I still prefer the name Scorpio. It lives up the hype, but as the risk of sounding like a PC purist, everything it can do has to end with the phrase “for a console”. And they don’t really deny that. Marketing right now is calling it the world’s most powerful console. That’s absolutely true. But even with all that power, it’s still not giving you true 4K content in your games. Movies? Sure. That’s not a problem, but the games still have a hill to climb. Along with…other issues.

I would love to say that Microsoft’s flagship title to usher in this new power is Crackdown 3, but I don’t even think they care about that anymore as shown in their E3 presentation. It was buried deep into the show with a silly trailer that did nothing for me and then they moved on. No, the flagship title is a racing game. It opened E3 and was pretty much given the most amount of time on stage, even if some of that time was spent displaying a real car (I’ll never understand the people who organize these shows – the marketing makes no sense to me). Forza Motorsport 7 is one hundred gigabytes. I don’t know how or why that is. I can’t think of a single PC game that comes in at that size (without DLC). But if this is the road to (not even true) 4K gaming on consoles….we’re gonna need a bigger boat. The default 1TB drive that comes on the Xbo..Scorpio isn’t going to cut it if we’re getting 100GB games right out of the gate without patches or DLC.

Oh yeah, then there’s the issue of people with internet caps and the like.
