Xbox Project Scorpio Website No Longer Lists “High Fidelity VR” Under Features

Xbox Project Scorpio Website No Longer Lists "High Fidelity VR" Under Features News Xbox  Xbox Scorpio Xbox One Scorpio

The big closer at Microsoft’s E3 conference for the Xbox One was a glimpse into the future with a short video officially announcing that they were working on what is currently known as Project Scorpio. Information about the Scorpio has been pretty few and far between, but one feature promoted initially has now been removed from the official website.

During the announcement video for the Scorpio, a number of different features were mentioned, such as the system having 6 teraflops of power, 8 CPU cores, 320 GB/s memory bandwidth, and obviously the ability to do 4K gaming. Beyond these features, there was another very important one that was announced for the Scorpio that, as pointed out by a member on NeoGAF, has all of a sudden been removed from the official website.

That feature that was stated before was “high-fidelity VR,” which obviously had a lot of people excited. PlayStation VR released in 2016, along with the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive on PC, but Xbox currently has no VR support.

It made perfect sense that this souped up version of the Xbox One that is said to be much more of an upgrade than say the PS4 Pro was to the PS4 would support such a feature. However, the removal of this feature on the website is somewhat worrisome. it’s possible that it was just accidentally removed, but it’s also very possible it has been shelved for now in lieu of focusing on other features.

This lack of mention on the site does kind of go along with what Phil Spencer said last year as well, where he mentioned that he didn’t want to bring VR to Scorpio until the technology was more than just “demos and experiments.” At that time, he said he wasn’t sure when VR would come to Scorpio, even though it was being designed as VR-ready, so perhaps they just removed it because it won’t be supported at launch in any way. This is something we’ll just have to wait and see as the year goes on and more details of Scorpio are revealed though.

    I dont care for VR, al I want is highest quality pixels

    • HardWorkingFamilyMan

      I agree, VR to me is a gimmick for gamers that have nothing good to play on their console so I’m glad they are ditching it.

      When he said it had a lot of gamers excited, I don’t know many Xbox owners that were excited. Hell, I know a lot more that are excited now that they aren’t doing a VR.

      • Wrightie

        VR may seem like a gimmick to you, not sure on your experience with it. For me however, who’s been using VR for 2 years it is far from a gimmick. Driving games are unequalled in VR, if you think Alien Isolation is frightening on screen try playing in VR where the claustrophobia surrounds you. DCS doesn’t get any more realistic than when you play in VR. It may not be for you but to say it’s for gamers who have nothing good to play is…. well quite absurd really.

    • Steven Hiller

      Again I’d like to point out high quality pixels are a thing that exsist.

    • Sexy Mcgee

      I think most understood he meant to say the highest quality image but the PR machine probably thought that it sounded pithier and it got the idea across better that Scorpio could not only do more pixels but have them display a better image.

      • Steven Hiller

        Nope, highest quality pixel means just that. It’s not ms fault if gsmers refuse to educate themselves

        • Sexy Mcgee

          Oh, excuse my ignorance.

    • Mr Xrat

      LOL, I understood that reference.

  • efnet

    Meh.. i have the oculus rift ( should have got the vive) and I’ve used it less than 50 hours so im not at all worried or bothered by this at all, but what i will say is i think theres a witch hunt going on aginst anything MS related, be it the scorpio, scalebound, xbox one s, you name it, people are looking for ways and things to attack.
    But i guess this is what gaming has become now, no one company can be on a even playing field as the other or looked at as an equal because as you know it people today need to have a hero and a villian, and apparently that’s how this generation is playing out .
    But you all know who im rocking with though?
    Xbox one all day baby !!!

    EDIT: also its a very nice idea to try and give back to your readers, Gameaggedon is a great idea and it’s a great way to help soften the blow of all these games releasing for some people.
    I didn’t want to comment about it on the actual article because i didn’t want to enter and possibly take the chance from someone who really needs it, but good job guys i like to see people give back…

    • Steven Hiller

      Yeah you’re right about that. Sony has been canceling vr exclusives and closing vr studios and there’s been virtually no coverage of that.

      • efnet

        Ofcourse not lol but for news sites i can understand their reasons, i mean drama is what help pays the bills for them right?
        But for the so called “gamers” thats on this console warrior rampage type crap, you know the ones that tend to repeat the same thing over and over again, i don’t get their rhyme or reasons ?
        You got these dudes going ape sh*t over a plastic box and pounding their chest while screaming ” im better than you”
        And it’s laughable because out the several I’ve encountered, they all fall victim to the same exact symptoms of a bullsh*tter.
        Example
        I look up their gamertags and notice they hardly play any of the games they brag about?
        You see them screaming exclusives, exclusives , and all they have are multiplats ?
        At that point i just become baffled by the tomfoolery and just decide to ignore the foolishness ?
        And after you call them out on it they all do the same thing, block their psn profiles so no one can call them out on it ever again….
        I kid you not ive done this to atleast 20+ people and the results are always the same?
        Were the hell are the gamers at???

        • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

          If you weren’t so busy getting your whining azzzz banned everywhere for being a crying Xbox fanboy, you would know where the gamers were. I’ll tell you where the gamers aren’t….they aren’t on Xbox One.

      • efnet

        See below for example, my words always trigger them dudes who do all this bragging but only play multiplats ???

        • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

          LOL. Your words? You mean you crying cause people keep dogging you and your 2nd place undesirable console of choice? I’m about to bust out laughing at the increasing patheticness of it all. VR gaming is about to go mainstream on consoles and there is absolutely no VR option on Xbox hardware and this hapless clown thinks he’s “triggering” somebody. Too funny!!!http://previews.123rf.com/images/mirage3/mirage31210/mirage3121000047/15930562-Portrait-of-a-blond-senior-woman-laughing-hysterically-or-giggling–Stock-Photo.jpg

          • efnet

            Hey chunky lol don’t let my preference get to you lol
            It could be second or third and it still wouldn’t matter lol
            I got your favorite console plus the upgraded version of your favorite console ( which you don’t have?)
            And i got all the exclusives, again which you don’t have ???
            Step your game up chunky monkey.

          • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            LOL, yes, but what you DON’T have is a PSVR.

            I love it when I’ve finally “triggered” you into the “insult phase” of your constantly weak argument. I got you backed into a corner with snot bubbles coming out of your nose, ready to cry out for help. Thats why you got banned from DS by Nelva. You couldn’t handle the pressure and came with the insults. You’re a weak and pathetic little child…typical Xbox fanboy.

          • efnet

            And here we go??
            Im sorry you keep mistaken anything i say as me being triggered, upset or whatever, dude it’s just not possible for me or anyone for that matter to get upset over some broke old dude cheerleading over a ps4 ?
            Come on bruh, get it together.

          • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Just as pathetic as your last reply. You’re at your lowest of lows right now son. Enjoy the future of getting kicked around. You earned it. Try and make some friends son. Ok?

          • efnet

            I will old man, i will lol
            Oh fyi i do have the psvr lol
            Bruh i told you, when you got it like me you can do that, and it’s still stitting in the box and aint never been used lol, throw away money my dude ….

          • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Sure you do. That’s why you were willing to wait a year for Resident Evil 7 to come out for PC. Suuuuuuuuuure buddy.

          • efnet

            Come on playa, you really think im going to sit here and lie about something so petty?
            Like really?
            You yourself already know the deal
            So why try me ?

          • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Yes. You would lie about petty things. You seem to think your sense of character and integrity is esteemed in these parts. Everybody knows what you’re about. I bet J.j. is glad your sorry trifling azzz is gone from DS. LOL.

          • efnet

            Right, says the guy who would go through the trouble to imitate my xbox gamer tag ?
            I don’t know man, maybe it’s a medical condition you have or maybe it’s because you’re single (shrugs)
            I dont know what it is but you seem to think all black men shuck and jive like you , im heading home right now to take yet another picture that once again prove you wrong again smh….

          • Brian

            Wow. You sound like a really insecure, bitter, little man.

  • Troy Marcel

    VR can suck a big one don’t care for it at all

  • Allen

    I can’t see what the two blocked trolls are saying but I’m sure they are down playing this and figures, I’ve been writing for days about if Scorpio would have VR at launch, looks like M$ may be disappointing again. Xbox has really done everything wrong this gen.

    • pin_go

      backward compatibility is a great feature, buy SW now upgrade HW later and enjoy again your fav games, the other great thing is playanywhere, sadly only windows store…if only on steam.

  • Steven Hiller

    Hmm, be interesting to see what’s going on here. Since windows 10 supports vr and ms has its own very good vr solution that’ll be rolling out soon, I suspect this is just ms adjusting language a little.

    • efnet

      Yea im with you on this one.

    • Allen

      No you don’t need VR remember? You need to join the stroking Xbox fans team.

      * You don’t need VR even a year after PSVR/Rift/Vive launch
      * 720p for current gen is okay
      * Sales don’t matter this gen so it’s ok Sony is winning
      * Huge external power brick in 2013 is okay
      * Needing a Kinect adapter in 2016 is okay
      * $60 controller eating AA like it’s 1995 is okay
      * Fewer games, older gamer and lower rated GWG is okay
      * Xbox doesn’t need exclusives

      • Steven Hiller

        Winning?

        • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

          Adjusting the language a little? In other words, removing what was intentional false advertising?

          LOL. Are you a comedian?

        • Allen

          lol how is PS4 not winning?

          • Steven Hiller

            Winning what again?

          • Allen

            Who are you?
            .
            .
            .
            .
            (Just playing stupid like you are)

          • Steven Hiller

            No seriously, what?

  • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    LOL!!!
    “We lied again. We really don’t have a VR option available, and we never did. It was all false marketing. We have access to, and the neverending support of the most gullible community in console gaming. Stay tuned for further updates(lies).

    • Steven Hiller

      But they showed their vr solution at ces. You know the inside out tracking made by lg HTC and a bunch of others.

      • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        What they showed was for Windows 10 applications. It had absolutely NOTHING to do with gaming on Scorpio. You people have been straight up bamboozled again and you all wanted VR back when you thought Scorpio was going to have it. Too funny.

        #Hilariousness!

        • Steven Hiller

          Just to be clear, I’m talking about the VR headsets using Windows holographics made by Lenovo and hp using HoloLens tracking. I wasn’t talking about HoloLens which is something completely different.

          • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            To be clear, you’re talking about those generic $300 headsets that kinda look like cheaply made PSVR knockoffs. Newsflash! Thank you for confirming that we’re both talking about the exact same thing. Now, we can both get back to you thinking up a new excuse for all of this constant fail.

          • Steven Hiller

            Yes those! The ones that have inside put tracking using HoloLens tech, 1440p res per eye and are nearly have the weight of psvr. $300 to $400 is nice to.

            So why say ms doesn’t have a vr solution when clearly you know they do?

          • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            VR solution for what? Scorpio? Don’t make me laugh. Those tin can looking glasses were for Windows 10 apps. What part of that is confusing you son?

          • Steven Hiller

            Their for Windows 10 creators update, which I’m currently previewing on my Xbox so…
            But do you have any specific information Xbox creators update wont include Windows holographics?

          • Allen

            lol dude that has nothing to do with gaming VR, lol you really don’t know what you are talking about.

            Oh, just found an article from November where Phil was downplaying VR. Not looking good http://www.forbes.com/sites/gordonkelly/2017/01/24/apple-ios-10-2-1-malware-security-patches/#318455f11e6a

          • Steven Hiller

            That’s an ios article.

          • Allen
          • Steven Hiller

            Yup, he pretty much nailed. Right now there just isn’t alot of great vr experience. It’s also really concerning that Sony has canceled many new vr projects. Will Scorpio launch with vr? I think it’s likely,they have the hardware and the code. But who knows if vr will even be relevant by years end, and it’s certainty not a system seller.

          • Allen

            lol and in the end your xbox fanboy delusion goggles work perfectly.

            * You don’t need VR even a year after PSVR/Rift/Vive launch – stroke stroke

          • Steven Hiller

            Respond intelligently. I dont see people talking about those must have psvr games. Also you dont think it means anything that Sony is canceling vr exclusives? If Sony is abandoning psvr what was the point?

          • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Either you provide links or you STFU.

          • Steven Hiller

            Links to what?

          • Allen

            https://www.reddit.com/r/PSVR/ is an active community and lots of posts about RE7 on PSVR and lots of other posts about other games as well.

            I also guess you hid under a rock to not see all those gifs going around.

            https://imgur.com/gallery/aMGoS

          • Steven Hiller

            You’d agree it would be pretty bad if Sony stopped development on most of their vr titles right? Much worse than Scorpio not launching with vr?

          • Billy

            I think he is thinking of the new not released yet mixed reality gear Win 10 is putting out not sure, same tech as HoloLens but needs a Win 10 PC to run it because HoloLens has its own version of Win 10 so no PC needed.

          • Steven Hiller

            So the non-HoloLens sets are not mixed reality, they’re vr, but they do use HoloLens tech to do tracking, room scale vr without external sensors.

          • Billy

            No, HoloLens is mixed reality they place VR objects in the real world thus is mixed reality but VR is when only what you see is Virtual. Why dose no one know the difference, if you can see the room your in and place a virtual tv on the wall in front of you and a virtual calendar on the wall beside you this is Mixed Reality (placing Virtual objects on real ones) and VR is that no reality is shown so you cant see the room your in to place an object of any kind. HoloLens is a mixed reality system not VR has nothing to do with tracking or sensors no matter where they are has to do with how much the real world you see if you can see the room your in and place objects in it, it is mixed reality if you cant see the room your in and only see the image that is shown it is VR. Becuse the new one I seen use the same tech to place a Virtual object in the real world. I maybe wrong but then all the articles I read had the same wording, placing a virtual object in the real world like HoloLens the only difference was that you needed a Win 10 PC to run it.

          • Steven Hiller

            So Microsoft has 2 new products releasing in April. 1 is HoloLens which is mixed reality,and yes it is self contained computer. The other are vr headsets which use HoloLens technology to do tracking which allows them to be smaller lighter and cheaper than the competition.(the tracking is about know where your body and head is so you can move around in the vr world without smashing into real walls. It’s called roomscale vr) Both are powered by windows 10 and windows holographics and so both will run windows 10 apps in a holograhic space. With HoloLens that space is the real world, with the headsets it’s a virtual desktop thingy, that looks really cool. Like your virtual space may be a beach in Fiji. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=SqXo7pKJGtU
            The first part is HoloLens, 3:30 talks about vr.

          • Billy

            what I seen says their mixed reality just like HoloLens but no real information is on them though only the demo and it says it uses the same tech as the HoloLens with the exception of needing a Win 10 Pc for it to function and every mixed reality has external sensors of one kind or another just HoloLens the sensor is in the headset not on your table like a lot of other systems.

          • Steven Hiller

            I know you’re trolling me, I know it, but I can’t stop responding. ☺ You know how VR works right? You have a headset and some external sensors track it’s position in the real world… Oh never mind… Just wait and see

          • Billy

            cant really troll some one in the same discussion, I don’t care where the sensors are becuse that has no bearing on if it is mixed or virtual reality, fact of the matter is they said in every article I read about it and the demo (granted they did not get to into it) that it was just like the HoloLens tech and HoloLens is mixed reality, if you don’t know the difference well that is your problem just wish you would not spread your misconceptions around.

          • Steven Hiller

            Forget about what other websites are posting, the video I posted is Microsoft presenting their own headsets. Watch the video and quote me where they said their VR headsets would be mixed reality. HoloLens uses many technologies to mix 3d objects into what you’re seeing, it’s more complicated that that. It has to know where walls and tables and the floor is, so its able to recognize all of that on the fly. It also has to keep track of where you are and what you’re looking at, all without external sensors so you’re free to move around. MS realized they could use that technology to create VR without external sensors(something oculas is also working on). If you dont understand that, and wont spend 5 minutes to watch the presentation, then I guess you’ll gave to wait until April to see. ?

            Right now VR sucks because you have to be directly in front of your computer, or if you’re using a vibe you have to have these towers scattered around you’re room so you can move in a 5×5 space. Sensor placement is everything because these headsets free you to move around I. VR space using your feet.

          • Billy

            Ok so you don’t care that it is mixed reality, all you care about are the sensors. Being wired is an issue then becuse you cant get the same freedom as you can with external sensors and even if you could you would need a long cord and no dev is going to make an app that will cover every room in your house becuse then they would be suggesting running around your home basically blindfolded. So Vr or not, internal sensor or not your telling me that you would rather be wired than have external sensors that could give you as you said a 5×5 area, when Oculus recommends the area be at least 3x3x3 bigger than you a the least are so for the average adult male 8’x8’x8′ at a min but even with a wireless the don’t recommend that you walk around becuse you cant see and make sure there is nothing that can hurt you, and no dev is going to recommend that I can talk my Oculus from my bed room to my living room and use it without changing anything yes I have external sensors but the older one I had that had internal ones the head set had to calibrate each time, and no dev in their right mind would suggest walking around with a cord, when phones had cords people learned that lesson the hard way, and I fear this gen just don’t have the stones to say yep I got tangled in my cord broke my gear and my pc but instead sue becuse of their lack of stone. VR space is actual limited to the space you have most the time in the first place my son uses my VR gear all the time and never stays in one place more like a 12×12 or so area so if you think you are going to get better area with a wire connected to a pc video if for me will you so I have something to send to Funniest home Video or heck YouTube it would get killer hits, or just send it to me so I can get a good laugh it has been a while, but either way your in for a rude awaking. Wires VS wireless and external sensor, the who idea of wireless is for the freedom of range and movement but we will see your rather you will.

          • Steven Hiller

            Either you’re doing a Conan clueless gamer segment or you’re from the UK. You’re from the UK right?
            HoloLens AR
            Headsets VR
            The sensors are for head and position tracking.

            If the hadsets were mixed then why would MS call them VR?

            Bruh, just watch the video.

          • Billy

            Nope not from the UK my grammar would be better if it was but your the clueless one you have no idea that MS’s partners are shipping an entire line of VR and holographic tech type head sets out just so you know Holographic is mixed reality or MR just so you know, but I will give you the benefit of the doubt, and a link to show.
            http://www.theverge.com/2016/10/26/13418156/microsoft-windows-10-holographic-virtual-reality-headset-announced-price
            I would send you the email MS sent me about the head sets but they are wired and wired is not going to open up your gaming area. The 6degree tracking is based on Oculus tech and that still uses external sensors+ the internal ones how else can the system know are you on one knee or two are you moving or not because the head sensors cant see what your actually doing yes it has an idea you turned your head but not your body, only having a head sensor would be a poor VR experience that would be just like the first ones years and years ago we used to help Vets with PTSD and TBI (PTSD it was meant to desensitize them to the trauma, did not work just made issues worse TBI to help them remember events they could not grasp) it was also used to gather intel and train soldiers from full training rooms using modified VR scenarios to full VR with a full squad to see how the handle a changes in different situations and worked together, often so simulators so that soldiers learning to operate things that cost 100s of thousand of dollars or prototypes (I did a lot of prototypes) but your wired head set no matter what internal or external sensors or both is not going to open I would only restrict you I can think of 100s of situations where a wire would impede a normal person from doing VR because of a tethered VR headset and just as many for the proper way for a disabled person (such as an amputee) Maybe you did not know about the whole line but if you clam to know more then you should know the whole story and just as many are MR as they are VR and they are from MS partners not MS so whos to say they will have good Res or refresh times. Oculus and HTC and other who are in the top of the VR game use wireless for a reason and yes they external but they also use internal sensors that 6degree tracking is just like Oculus not that they own it but they did it first and used internal and external so if you think your going to have a full functioning VR experience with only a head set with internal tracking your not going to get it for 300 US not within the next few years the tech is to new and the wire is just going to impede you movement but it is a cheaper way to go and well you get what you pay for. Maybe you did not know more likely you just did not read the whole thing or did nothing but watch a video but you did not have the whole story, I did not ether really. I heard MR and you said VR we was both right and wrong, but the wire is not going to open up your whole house and for sure not going to open it up any more than normal VR gear, for PC to use most VR your looking at least USB cables and any thing over 10-12 your USB would need a repeater and would lag in gaming even USB 3. Don’t get me wrong I am glad it is VR so gamers who need a cheaper solution can get VR but wired sucks, even playing a basic game like Minecraft you would be in danger of tripping every time your attacked yep you can look over your shoulder look around if you use a chair but the chair would impede your movements if not sitting then the wire would or if you did what some Vets do use an office chair the wire would. I am almost sorry you don’t see that still want a video of you playing mini game Minecraft or combat MP with a wired head set would be funny to watch. Gamers could use a cheaper option but to think it is a valid one to compete with other VR headsets that are wireless is absurd, I cant think of a better way to put it, I have been around VR for a long time and seen it grow from something only companies and devs can get to what it is today for gamers mostly, VR not MR (MR is good for design used it as well but not as often) We played games on it even then, made-up games but games non the less. Back then it was all wired but we found ways to play games with it, it was then we seen it could be used to train squads and simulations that we could not do IRL, but it was not until we could move around with it (when it went wireless) the learned the real potential for training. If every you see and hear looks and sounds real then you can believe it is real but if you have a wire restricting you, you have that reminder always there, and the military trains as they fight. You make it as real as you can in other words, follow all the steps every time, just like gaming it is all muscle memory and hand eye coordination. Bottom line is the wire blows if you cant get a higher end VR set that is fine but don’t comment on it like the internal sensors and the wire are the best thing in the world because right now the leading set up is internal and external sensors and wireless and that is what you can buy now, in a year or 6 months that may change but a wire is always going to be a lower end option.

          Project Scorpio has Win 10 gaming so same software. And once again they already responded to the VR issue and said it was still going to have high fidelity VR still not conferred what VR gear a partner or Xbox made but High Fidelity VR non the less.

          • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            The proof is in the pudding. I don’t believe half of what they say.

          • Billy

            I wait for prof too but I take what they say until prof otherwise. Jumping over every little detail is a bit childish but as long as they give what they have already stated I don’t see any issue. So as long as they keep their word their Xbox Scorpio will do well and if they don’t I can see it being a bad start like Xbox One just how it is but we will not know anything for sure at least until full specs are given (I don’t trust leaks unless they can be verified) and a demo is given until then fact is we don’t have all the info we need.

    • Billy

      And we still do have a VR option they announced it yesterday.

      • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        They once announced that Quantum Break could only be played on Xbox One too Bill. How did that little lie turn out?

        • Billy

          That is up to a game dev unless it is first party so not really a lie just misinformed to what the dev was doing.

          • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            You ever gonna run outta excuses and just accept being constantly lied to?

          • Billy

            Quantum Break went to PC and your upset about it. All Xbox exclusives have gone to PC every one I can think of anyway and now with play anywhere and Project Scorpio doing Win 10 Gaming, complaining or calling it a lie is pointless. MS and Xbox are different divisions of the same company and granted not all tech gets across that line but why would it bother you PC games go to play it, why would it bother you if PS or Nintendo go to play it for that matter, it would just mean more money going to MS studios for games. Why do games fight and argue over pointless stuff when Game Devs are gauging us with half done games not just Xbox but across the board because we don’t work together. I am sorry but PC is not console and even if your are one of the console crazies that think their system is the best a game going to PC form the same company that makes the OS it is going to run on is just childish, Halo goes to PC going to complain about that too. I am sorry but until gamers get on the same page on every console we are going to have game devs doing what they want instead of what gamers really want and you are counterproductive to the gaming community, so grow up, read a book (nursery rimes are not books), join the Army get some real world experience, then come back and then we can talk because your expectations need some adjusting.

          • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Dude. Shut up. You’re the naive one here. I’m an Air Force veteran. I’ve been doing this much longer than you. If you keep on hanging around these comment sections writing full on essays of acceptance and apologies for such mediocrity from Microsoft then you’ll continue to be subject to it. Grow a pair.

          • Billy

            US Air Force and US Army Vet retired and even though it is possible your older than me, I doubt you have be in tech longer than me, and the Army paid me to leave the AirForce because of what I can do not that I am allowed to do them now that I am retired unless I take a consulting job which I don here and there. I maybe a HillBilly but I am so much more. As for a Pair your the one wining like a girl because you think you was lied to by Xbox because a game MS studios makes went to a Windows platform PC for gaming, I new the Air Force was girly but I could of swore they had some kind of spine almost makes me ashamed I went there, almost, then again I did leave them and go to another branch, let me guess you did your 4 years lol don’t get me wrong sometimes they had better food in country but they had no idea what to do when shells stared flying. I am glad I left them Army paid me well to leave and if your would of been the result of me stay glad I left. The Army mentality is why I push for gamer unity no one left behind at my 23 year active I was wounded crushed 17 vertebra and I still took my tourniquet out and put it around my gunners leg then took his and put it around his other set my drone to go back to base and passed out, during my deployments I seen Airmen run at the sound of a mortar shell incoming and not toward the bunker or the alarm just run like Gump I see them call me Sir because they did not know my rank even though it was on my ACUs staring at them the was just to lazy to learn maybe that is a common trait in Airmen most the ones when I was in the Air Force seemed fine maybe because there was no battle so no need to wuss out. I don’t know but I can tell you one thing you want to blame someone for something find the right one and the right thing first. If I did curse on here I would be right now but my kids read these sites and I don’t want them reading things like that. I you want to make a difference you find a way but guess lazy Airmen like you would rather complain to someone that cant fix it than to find someone who can but you don’t even have a valid complaint dude it is in your head game was published by MS studios and it is on Xbox (who is a division of MS) and Windows PCs wow you slow and I though the Air Force had higher ASVAB scores on average but yours must of not gotten to double digits, or did you have a head injury because something is wrong with you not understanding Windows Platforms for the game and Xbox platforms for the game are basically the same thing and still makes it an Xbox exclusive because it was not on any other consoles. Most games have a PC counter part no PS don’t put theirs on PC but that is because it is MS Windows (there are one or two) but Xbox and Windows PC are the same company. I am a gamer and gamers need to work together to get things to change I know how the industry works but t will not get better unless you have enough games on the same page and you have a valid complaint and your complaint Airmen is not.

            You are a very passionate person. I can totally respect that. Thank you for your service and I wish you the best of everything in life from here on out. Video games are a great stress reliever. Please continue to enjoy whatever it is that you like to play, on whatever platform.

            LOL see no one it the army would wear an old piolets cap. You too and I prefer Xbox even though I play on and have every console and a gaming PC to date.

          • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Little Billy. You are the reason that game developers do what they do. You are a consumer with no backbone unwilling to stand up for your rights. Whenever you decide to stop supporting them screwing you over, and stop defending their right to do it, they will then give you a product worthy of purchase . Grow a pair Billy, and learn to stop having such low expectations.

  • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    I think its amazing that when all is said and done, and there is absolutely no VR option available on an Xbox platform, whether it be Scorpio or otherwise, the Xbox community starts making all these claims in gaming comment sections that they hate the idea of VR gaming. You people are a disgrace to console gaming, you constantly settle for mediocrity, and you’re all just further embarrassing yourselves here today to try and save face. It’s all so hilarious to watch and behold.

  • Billy

    It dose urck me a bit to see they removed it, and i only see two reasons why they would the first is they did can it, as unlikely as i find this it still is in the back of my mind, the second is that they are going to use a partner or have their own VR like Sony did with the Pro. The later is more likely but I think it was a mistake for Sony to use their own lower end VR and believe it would also be one for Xbox to do the same however using a partner like Oculus (who is on the forefront of the tech) would be a good move. Oculus dose not offer the best res when it comes to VR gear but offers experience with VR and porting games over to VR such as Minecraft and other games list on their web site. I don’t see a reason why MS and Xbox would remove this unless they planed to announce something soon about why and what they are doing about it.

    • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Why it would make more sense to not use your own VR solution, and use someone else’s, makes no damn sense, and you have provided no rational justification for your reasoning. With your reasoning, why not just let some other company like Samsung manufacture the Xbox Scorpio. Who’s to blame when the tech hits a few snags? Are you going to blame the VR tech manufacturer or Microsoft for the issue? Of course I already know the answer to that one. You guys kill me.

      • Billy

        Sony made their own, and it is a lower level VR it was the first on console but Oculus and HTC and so many other companies have experience and better tech long before Sony decided to go to VR. Using a company that has experience at porting games to VR and experience at making the VR tech and support is a much better move that making your own unless you have been in VR for at least as long as your partners, on of the main reason to have partners is so you have their experience and tech at your disposal because they know more than you. So the main reasons is so you have some one else that knows more than you can help you (no shame in asking for help if you need it the shame comes when you don’t and mess it up), not that I think Sony messed up per say but the lower res of their gear compared to their VR partners shows one of two things on they did not ask for help or two their VR is to inexperienced to be mass produced yet. I hope Xbox dose not make the same mistake, so using someone that is experienced in VR, tech and the support of such tech is the best move, even though MS has been in VR longer than Sony however Xbox has not really used VR at all just like PlayStation has not both being a different division not all tech crosses that line. I was part of the a team that used VR to help Vets with PTSD and memory loss because of it and TBI to better understand what happened just before and during each incident, when the question of use was put out only a few companies responded and MS was one of them Sony did in some of the later trials but that was years after we seen it was not a treatment for PTSD but aggravated it, however it was a good intel tool. The I guess it would make since yes it may cost more but experience in support, porting games and in the gear is some of the best reasons. As for who to blame I place no blame if something don’t work I don’t mind answer your question but you don’t know me at all and if there was an issue I cant solve (few and far between) I would ask both and other gamers that have the same set up (often gamers know before the tech companies do) but I don’t blame anyone if there is an issue I may ask but Oculus is a partner and if Xbox (not MS same corp but not the same division makes a difference) makes it to work with the system there would not be any issues that they cant work out ahead of time before hardware or new software is released. I don’t know why blame has to cross your mind do you blame your system?

      • Billy

        For the experience in support, porting games and in the hardware. I don’t know what you don’t get. Sony made their own not great res lags often but getting better all in all not horrible but not experienced and neither is Xbox, MS but not all tech crosses the division line in a corp. As for who to blame I don’t blame anyone ever unless I can prove it is their issue to solve but I can fix most things myself. Who do you blame for your malfunction?

  • Alistair Jay

    Not sure if people are aware of Windows 10 Holographic & the 6 new Hololens glasses coming. It’s probably making way for their AR tech which I believe will be part of the Scorpio. Would be awesome if they announced a Scorpio Hololens package. But we won’t know till E3,

    • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      LOL. You hopeful dreamers are hilarious.

  • Grecs

    Blah blah

  • Mr Xrat

    Another embarrassing reversal.

    Shitpio turning into the PS3 without the games.

  • Guest

    LOL at all this PS tw@ts who don’t read past the title or the link that provided this info. Xbox gamers will enjoy true VR and 4K and not the half a$$ that is PS4 Pro and PSVR.

  • freddy_uk

    more broken promises from MS

  • Gerald Jeffcoat

    What I think is MS see how poorly Sony is doing with their VR and don’t want to be lump in with them or VR in general. Let’s face it, the killer VR game won’t be out anytime soon but MS talks about the VR capabilities people would expect games to match. VR as a whole is down. MS need all the good press it could get.

    • Billy

      If Project Scorpio dose Win10 gaming like it is rumored then all the Win10 VR games would run on it. Sony VR is not horrible it is actual a very good step forward the issue with it is that very few game devs are working on games for it and the fact is it is one step up from Phone VR systems. The Pone VR and Sony VR systems use one screen with lower res, makes me wish that Sony had contracted someone else to do their VR. As for the game issue some games are working on VR versions now such as Ark but takes them time and why do VR for one system but once Xbox and Nintendo announced they would be working on VR (Xbox this holiday and Nintendo for Switch not done yet) then they had more of an incentive to make VR games. Xbox needs to get the best VR they can and Oculus and HTC who are partners with MS can do that but from what I have been told they are making Scorpio will work with any of he new VR systems as well, (cheap ones being released this year by other partners) if it is true or not only time will tell. Xbox needs Project Scorpio to release without any issues and they need to get some of their exclusives back on track, PS has taken the lead in that regard even if Xbox takes the lead in Power with Scorpio. I play across all gaming systems including high-end PC gaming, I do my best to learn the pros and cons of each system and judge them as best as I can, objectively but that dose not always happen sometimes I lean toward one or the other. I guess maybe it is the games I get attached to instead of the systems I play on. You are right VR has been the future of gaming for quite some time and I am glad to see it coming to consoles along with 4k gaming. (PS4 Pro being limited in the latter regard) I have been around VR for a long time, well since the military first used it to treat PTSD (a bad failure) but even then we used to as a game when no one was looking, or rather when we thought no one was. So if soldiers who get board because the military moto is hurry up and wait, can use it as a game what 10 years ago or more then when actual incorporated just makes it incredible if you have not seen it I would suggest going to a MS Store or other that demos VR gear and try it, it is quite amazing for a gamer, well depending on the game and res of the gear, so try Oculus or HTC Vibe, Vibe having a faster refresh rate as for games most use any of the Oculus game system and Minecraft game but they will change it if you ask.
