Microsoft elaborates upon Xbox One vs Project Scorpio frame rate parity policies

The statement led to Xbox engineering lead Mike Ybarra stepping in, assuring people that such decisions were left to the developers, not Microsoft.

So, given just how packed the upcoming Xbox One Scorpio is - it has 12 GB of GDDR5 RAM, and a 6 TFLOP GPU, we could see PC games being made with a higher baseline in mind, rather than with the Xbox One and PS4 used as the lowest spec being targeted. His answer, in this particular instance, was a definitive no.

Following this tweet, Ybarra even placed the policy of Microsoft in front so that they are more clear and direct.

There was a question related to having 60fps on multiplayer games on Scorpio for which Microsoft's representative replied that MP games should never be 30fps, 60fps on different consoles but developers can always deliver best performance on a superior Scorpio console when it gets launched in single player mode.

The subject arose on Twitter after a user claimed there is frames per second parity between the two consoles when it comes to multiplayer gaming, which, according to them, means a device from 2013 is holding back the Scorpio. Furthermore, they want to make use of the Scorpio's hardware and capabilities will be entirely up to them. "We have no requirements limiting framerate or fidelity".

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.

Sony launched PS4 Pro which allows 4K gaming experience or at least something close to that.

As a refresher, Microsoft is expected to finally showcase the "world's most powerful console" at E3 2017, releasing it into the wild sometime this holiday season.
