Microsoft has confirmed that Project Scorpio will offer “high-fidelity VR experiences.” This comes despite all reference to VR being removed from the official website.
The representative from Microsoft added that “[w]hen Project Scorpio ships later this year it will be the most powerful console ever built with a 6 teraflop GPU to deliver true 4K gaming, high-fidelity VR experiences, and greater graphic fidelity.”
NeoGAF users recently spotted that the promotional page for Project Scorpio been changed to remove “hi-fidelity VR” from its list of bullet points. This cached version of the page shows that “hi-fidelity VR” was at one time featured on the page, and its removal has lead to speculation that Microsoft may have removed the functionality for VR.
ThePlayStation 4 Pro is currently the go-to console for console gamers looking for a VR experience, but with the power of Project Scorpio passing that of Sony’s machine, it would have been an injustice to not include VR.
Project Scorpio is expected to be released later this year.
