Skyrim remastered: Everything we know
From visual upgrades to console mods.

I think if you are primarily a PC gamer who picks up the consoles for exclusives then this article is for you, if however you are a console gamer none of this will make any difference. The Scorpio will be released 4 years after the Xbox One which isn't unheard of for console generations and it will be backwards compatible, that alone is a big advantage over many previous gens. Unfortunately people will agree with this article who are not PC gamers because they have some grudge against the Xbox and/or Microsoft and want to see it go down, my advice would be to ignore them.
You say that as someone with some experience in the matter! Frazzl, you're clearly out your depth here and the fact that you managed to Google something to agree with you carries no weight. Whilst a limited definition of hypocrisy may include intent to deceive, it's broader definition has included what we may refer to as unintentional hypocrisy for years. In fact, I've so enjoyed discussing it that I'm going to start researching it further tonight and a write a paper on it. I might suggest you try understanding the meaning of irony; it's embarrassing when you use words you don't understand.
And at the end of the day, whatever I am, you remain a rabid fanboy
Listen... Someone somewhere said a slightly negative thing about Xbox - you better get on it!
Irony: Irony may not be intentional it can be a twist of fate.
Hypocrisy: Hypocrisy is intentional as the individual creates pretense.
feigning to be what one is not or to believe what one does not; especially : the false assumption of an appearance of virtue or religion/
I am a big fan of Sony games. However, I can stand criticism of Sony, whereas you can't of Microsoft. As I said more than once here, the points in this article are valid for both Sony and Microsoft. I can accept that, you can't.
What you are accusing me of is not IRONY, but HYPOCRISY! Do you understand the difference? Clearly not! (I would also dispute any hypocrisy or fanboyism on my part. For the record, I think Xbox is a great brand but that MS have muddied the waters lately with their product and I don't like it. Ditto goes for Sony with the Neo, I don't trust that it won't eventually leave the PS4 behind.)
Irony - happening in a way contrary to what is expected, and typically causing wry amusement because of this.
Hypocrisy - behavior in which a person pretends to have higher standards than is the case.
The difference between irony and hypocrisy is that, in irony, it is a twist of the circumstances, but in hypocrisy, it is not so. It is a pretense.
You clearly can't articulate a reply, so have to respond with playground-level "lol's."
That's ok, I don't take on fanboys and actually expect any logical or meaningful discourse.
some developers will take advantage of that 6 teraflops in different ways". Microsoft won't force developers to use the extra Scorpio processing power to hit 4K; they're free to use it how they want. That's great. But whereas Microsoft sees Scorpio as the 4K machine, a developer may simply see it as 'more power' for a native 1080p experience
Your personal insults don't bother me, I know my reading comprehension is fine, thanks.
What irony do you percieve?
So.... you can't mention any and hide behind a flipant remark. Pretty much what I'd expect from you.
So, now you can upgrade your Xbox whenever you want, you don't have to wait for the Scorpio in Microsoft's service.
You do know that there are other numbers between 3 and 8, right? I mean, I'm not aware of a rule that says if you don't release a console on 3 years then you have to wait till 8!
I know you claim to not be an M.S. fanboy frazzl but you absolutely are! You clearly cannot handle any criticism of your favored brand and, I'm sorry to say this, but you've embarrassed yourself a bit on here with your hysteria aimed at EG. They're just asking questions (which they also direct at Sony) so just chill out a bit.
Is this confusing? It all looks pretty cut and dry to me. Original Xbox One is no longer necessary. Xbox One S is for those with perhaps a limited budget and/or a tv with hdr. Scorpio is for those who want the same games but with higher framerate/resolution. If you don't prefer the simplicity of a console and if you have the money for a powerful PC, then you can play many of the same games with windows 10. The message was clear, why is everyone so confused?
No, 3DS didn't and the Neo won't share all its exclusives with PC, which I believe was @PresidentCupcake's point.
No need to be this bitter. It's just an opinion piece.
So all good intentions aside, I'm back to where I started. Scorpio will likely be a new console generation, which hurts the Xbox brand more than add consumer choice.
Definitely a lot of alienating going on on this side.
Sony just shot themselves in the foot etc. You can just tell the AAA devs will be targeting PS4K because it looks better in marketing, and the normal PS4 owners will be left with unoptimized crap, meaning, might as well have gone PC in the first place. Makes me reconsider Sony in the future.
You never wonder about why Nintendo is in the games business - but for Microsoft, it's always been more strategic. Xbox offered up lots of answers and predictions of the future at this E3. But it left me with one big question: why will anyone need an Xbox?
There's a small-form PC now called "One" that plays some of the same games.
Skyrim, Fallout 3, Infamous 2
