Scorpio, the improved console being launched by Microsoft at the end of next year, will have exclusive games, according to Microsoft’s head of Xbox games marketing Aaron Greenberg.
These games, however, will be VR titles, as Scorpio will support virtual reality where the Xbox One does not.
Greenberg confirmed this while speaking with Engadget, also confirming that all non-VR titles will work on both Scorpio and Xbox One:
“… we said we’re not going to have console-exclusive games for Project Scorpio. It’s one ecosystem — whether you have an Xbox One S or Project Scorpio, we don’t want anyone to be left behind. Now, with the power and capabilities we have, we’ll be able to do high-fidelity VR. Now, that space, we don’t think of that as console gaming, we think of that as high-fidelity VR, and so with the VR experiences those will be new things that you will get on Project Scorpio.”
There’s still no mention on how Xbox plans to let people play these VR titles, as they don’t have a VR headset in development that we know of, although a partnership with Oculus still seems like the safest bet.
