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 â€œfor a consoleâ€. And they donâ€™t really deny that. Marketing right now is calling it the worldâ€™s most powerful console. Thatâ€™s absolutely true. But even with all that power, itâ€™s still not giving you true 4K content in your games. Movies? Sure. Thatâ€™s not a problem, but the games still have a hill to climb. Along with…other issues.
I would love to say that Microsoftâ€™s flagship title to usher in this new power is Crackdown 3, but I donâ€™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 (Iâ€™ll never understand the people who organize these shows – the marketing makes no sense to me). Forza Motorsport 7 is one hundred gigabytes. I donâ€™t know how or why that is. I canâ€™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 consolesâ€¦.weâ€™re gonna need a bigger boat. The default 1TB drive that comes on the Xbo..Scorpio isnâ€™t going to cut it if weâ€™re getting 100GB games right out of the gate without patches or DLC.
Oh yeah, then thereâ€™s the issue of people with internet caps and the like.
