The most dangerous thing on this planet is the underdog. And for all of their success, Microsoft and the XBOX team are the underdogs this gaming generation. The thing about being behind is it makes you better, stronger, and hungrier. After the abysmal launch of the original XBOX ONE, Phil Spencer and the XBOX team has done everything possible to win back the heart of gamers. With removing the mandatory kinect, lowering the price of the console, and adding backwards compatibility, MICROSOFT is really listening to the players.
In August, gamers will be able to get their hands on the new sleek, slim, smaller, and absolutely beautiful XBOX ONE SLIM. This console comes with a wide range of new abilities. Though the specs are not fully known, we do know that it will be slightly stronger than the original XBOX ONE. Along with knowing this console will have the ability to play movies in 4K resolution, we now have confirmation it will upscale ALL XBOX games to 4K.
Coming along with the Xbox One S, is a new controller. This controller, which you can also customize, comes with an array of improvements. These improvements include BLUETOOTH, TEXTURED GRIP, NEW THUMB STICKS, and INCREASED RANGE. Theses added features will make it one of the best controllers on the market. A vast step up from this original XBOX ONE controller. This is the controller we should have had from the start. A controller void of dead zones.
As great as the XBOX ONE SLIM sounds, nothing is bringing more excitement to fans than the MONSTER! PROJECT SCORPIO, which was also announced at E3 2016 along with the XBOX ONE SLIM, is set to push us forward into a new generation of console graphical power. With 6 teraflops of computing power and 320 GB’s of memory bandwidth, it is set to be the most powerful console on the market. Completely changing the narrative of having the weakest console this gen, in comparisons to SONY’s PLAYSTATION 4. It’s note worthy to know, PROJECT SCORPIO will be forwards and backwards compatible. All of your XBOX ONE games along with approved XBOX 360 games will be playable with PROJECT SCORPIO. Not only the software, but your hardware as well. So do not be afraid to buy that ELITE CONTROLLER, it will work with the MONSTER!
Microsoft will continue to try and change the narrative. They want nothing more than for you to be playing their games, even if it is not on a XBOX console. Windows 10 PC is a big focus for them as well. And bringing these great looking titles to more gamers is a win for all. Creating this Eco system of gaming really shows Microsoft wants you all in. So it is time to leave 2013 behind, it is time to enjoy the present, it is time to look forward to the future. JUMP AHEAD!
