Thomas Mahler, game designer of Ori and the Blind Forest, has recently expressed his opinion about Project Scorpio, defining the platform as “a true next-gen console.” Here, the statements of Mahler.
The hype about Project Scorpio increases, at incredible pace thanks to a recent tweet by Phil Spencer, boss of Xbox division. Adding fuel to the fire there is also Thomas Mahler, programmer of Moon Studios, with some valuable statements. Mahler defines Scorpio as a real “next gen” console, label that buckles to the new gaming hardware.
With a post on NeoGAF, Thomas reiterated that Scorpio will be a true next-gen console: “All consoles now are x86 PCs and the architecture will remain the same, that’s why Sony was able to quickly iterate on the PS4 and make a beefier version of it,” he said.
“Scorpio is a next-gen machine with the added benefit that all your old games will still be compatible. From this point on, similar to PCs, you’ll not lose your library when you buy a next-gen system. I guess since NeoGAF is confsued, Microsoft will need to do a little work to make it clear to everyone that Scorpio isn’t just a half-assed upgrade (which the PS4 Pro kinda is…), but a full blown next-gen machine that’s just backwards-compatible to your current library.”
Xbox Scorpio should be announced at E3 in Los Angeles. Recall that yesterday some leak of deemed technical specifications of the console were leaked on the net.
