Game developers may be able to build titles exclusively for the Xbox One Project Scorpio super console.
Despite Microsoft’s initial vow that even gamers on an original Xbox One would be able to enjoy all games moving forwards, cracks have already started to appear in the party line.
In an interview with YouTube (via GameSpot) Microsoft’s GM of Game Publishing Shannon Loftis said it was up to developers, whether they choose to go for the “very high-end 4K,” leaving owners of the original in the dust.
When asked whether there would be some exclusive games for Scorpio, Loftis said: “I don’t know about that. We’ll see. It’s up to the game development community; what do they want to do.”

After a storm erupted on Twitter following Loftis’ comments, the Head of Xbox Games Aaron Greenberg said reports claiming confirmation of exclusives were “not true.”
A Microsoft spokesperson also added: “
The PC-standard Project Scorpio system will be released in time for the 2017 holiday season.
It will have an 8-core CPU, a graphics card with 6TFLOPs and 320GB/s of memory bandwidth. The console is made for VR and will be capable of playing games at 4K resolution ad 60fps.
