Project Scorpio - The Most Powerful Place To Create And Play

Project Scorpio - The Most Powerful Place To Create And Play
Published by: forahobby on Thursday, April 13, 2017
Tagged: Gaming, Xbox One,

Phil Spencer, Head of Xbox shares some thoughts on Project Scorpio.

Project Scorpio (Xbox One)

At Team Xbox we put gamers at the center of everything we do and we are driven to build the best platform on which to create and play games. We know that you can’t have one without the other, which is why we’ve invested so much in new development tools, publishing opportunities, hardware and services for developers and gamers alike. With Project Scorpio, we created a console with the goal of being the ultimate place for developers to realize their visions and the best place to play any Xbox game.

The creativity and innovation in our industry is driven by developers of all sizes. A single person can launch a game that becomes a global phenomenon or teams of hundreds can create the industry’s biggest blockbuster. At GDC in March, we announced the Xbox Live Creators program, opening up access for anyone to create and publish a game to Xbox One consoles and Windows 10 PCs. When you combine that program with dev mode, which enables any retail Xbox One to be a developer kit, you have the easiest path in the industry for game creators to publish their games broadly to console and PC, reaching millions of gamers around the world.

With Project Scorpio, we set a design goal of building the first true 4K console for gamers with an emphasis on compatibility so no one gets left behind. Once we locked that plan, we set our sights on building the world’s most powerful console development platform, which includes the new Xbox One Development Kit and a full suite of software to get every ounce of performance from the platform. Like the retail console, we built this special dev kit by evaluating every piece, from hardware to software and tools, with developers and compatibility in mind. We paid attention to logistical details, like dramatically speeding up how quickly a developer can move their work between PC and dev kit, and made it easy to program and test changes at the literal press of a button on the front of the box. The goal is to let creators focus their time and energy on bringing their game to life, and less of it on getting up and running on new hardware.

We’ve created the most powerful console with you in mind. We’ve created the most powerful development platform with our industry’s creators in mind. And, we’re unifying players across PC and console with Xbox Live, the fastest, most reliable multiplayer network and Beam, the next generation streaming service. Ultimately, we know you care most about great games, whether they be exclusive, multiplatform, independent or AAA. We are proud of the diverse lineup of games coming this year that will only be playable on Xbox One and will play better on Project Scorpio. We designed Project Scorpio to be the best console to play the blockbuster multiplatform games from our publishing partners, made it easy for recently released titles to upgrade to true 4K and for beloved, backward compatible titles to play better than ever before.

I’m proud of the progress made with Project Scorpio and what it will mean for the creators who fuel the passion of gamers around the world. On behalf of everyone at Team Xbox, thank you for your continued passion and support. We’re excited to unveil Project Scorpio and the amazing game experiences it powers at E3 this June.

Day One Patch Won't Fix Animations in Mass Effect: Andromeda

Day One Patch Won't Fix Animations in Mass Effect: Andromeda
Published by: tomcarter on Friday, March 10, 2017
Tagged: Gaming, Xbox One,

Mass Effect: Andromeda is shaping up to be one of the biggest releases this year, and if considered the history of the series, it can also be a strong Game of the Year contender. For those of you who are not aware, the review copies are already handed over to the reviewers, and there are some alarming things about the game that need to be fixed.




Before we begin exploring the issues that are currently plaguing the game, you should know that the game is being developed by BioWare, however, instead of using the Unreal engine, the development is done entirely using the Frostbite engine that is popular in games like Battlefield series, as well as Dragon Age: Inquisition.

With that out of the way, the issue that’s plaguing the game at the moment is that the facial and overall animations are horribly implemented to the point that these animations have been subjected to several meme creations all over the internet.

Considering how the game is still under embargo and not available to the public release, gamers thought that the day 1 patch will probably fix the horrible animations that have made a laughing stock out of the game. Sadly, it is now confirmed that the day 1 patch won’t be doing anything about the animations.

The confirmation is coming from Ian Frazier, who happens to be the lead designer on Mass Effect: Andromeda, while responding to a tweet about the day 1 patch fixing the issues with the animation, Frazier went ahead and said:

“At day 1? No, that ship has sailed. We'll have more patches later on, but exactly what goes into them is still in discussion.”

Apparently, we do know that there are going to be patches later on for the game. However, it’s not clear whether or not the patches will actually fix the animation issue that has been ruining the experience for a lot of people.

Considering how the game is available for the members of the EA’s Origin access, a lot of players have taken to social media as well as Reddit and raised concerns about this rather weird situation.

In addition to that, several people have also compared the facial animations to older games with much smaller budget stating that Mass Effect: Andromeda doesn’t look half as good. In addition to that, the good news is that the Frazier did confirm that BioWare is looking into adding new skin tones for the character creation.

Last but not the least, Frazier commented that the multiplayer sound issue is currently being investigated. Needless to say, BioWare is currently encouraging the players to report the problems as soon as they see one.

Knowing the company’s history and success, we have high hopes for the Mass Effect: Andromeda receiving the right amount of attention that a game of this scale actually deserves.

Mass Effect: Andromeda is launching officially on 21st March on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
