Lots of new features are coming to Xbox Insiders this month

Posted March 20, 2017

Microsoft will unveil the Xbox One Scorpio this year and the console will be launched during the Holiday period.

The Xbox Scorpio was praised by Monolith Productions as the most powerful console ever.

Discover tournaments from your Xbox One or Xbox app on Windows 10, get notifications when your match is ready, jump directly into your match on the Xbox One, enjoy automatic results reporting, and show off the results on your activity feed.

Rory Newbrough, the lead designer at Hi-Rez Studios, was asked about this subject in a recent interview, confirming that developers were still very much focused on providing for where the bulk of their customers are.

New filter tools are also on the way for the My Games and Apps section, allowing you to look exclusively at Xbox One or Xbox 360 games in your library.

What also makes this deal great is the fact that numerous Xbox One models out there feature pack-in games, with there being bundles based around Halo 5: Guardians, Gears of War 4, Madden 17, Battlefield 1, and even the most recent Halo Wars 2. However, Microsoft has plans to release some teasers before the month of June as well.

It follows new reports that claim the Xbox Scorpio will offer new 4K functionality that is not now available on the PS4, or PS4 Pro. By the time Scorpio launches, it will be the equivalent of a mid-range PC in 2017, which is how most consoles tend to launch.

Microsoft has announced a wide range of features it will release in the coming weeks for "select" Xbox Insider members on Xbox One and Windows 10.

"It will also leverage HEVC for encoding 2160p, 60 frame-per-second (FPS) video for Game DVR and streaming".

The ability to offer 4K 60fps video game capture would give the Xbox Scorpio a huge advantage over the PS4 Pro, which can offer 1080p and 60fps.

Xbox Scorpio's features will make its graphics core to be more than capable of going toe-to-toe with today's top-end graphics card, which is the brand-new Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 that has 6.5TFLOPs of performance.
