Microsoft apparently said last year that Xbox One S and the Microsoft Project Scorpio will not shorten console generations. Reportedly, while both the Xbox S and Project Scorpio will support VR and 4K resolutions, the games will be designed to account for each system's hardware.
According to VG24/7, Microsoft's statement last year that all games and accessories will support all versions of the Xbox One, including the highly anticipated Microsoft Project Scorpio is probably not true because only Project Scorpio will support a VR headset and there will definitely be VR-only games that work only with the system. But the company clarified by saying, everything that works on Xbox One will also work on Microsoft Project Scorpio. It is further said that to make a game it is important to take advantage of different hardware competencies.
Seemingly, Microsoft is upgrading the Xbox One so that it can access the initial requirements of the VR and 4K technologies. The move is apparently to negate customer expectations that there is a need to buy new units every time there is an upgrade, but rather the Xbox One S and Microsoft Project Scorpio systems are more about keeping up with the curve.
In its post, Engadget said that Microsoft 's awareness is to innovate the hardware without sacrificing compatibility because generally, a new iteration of console hardware renders incompatibility with the games and accessories it carries. Apparently, the company hurdled this predicament such that buying games and accessories for Xbox One, or in acquiring an Xbox One S, the games and accessories that come with it are going to work on Project Scorpio. Accordingly, Microsoft says that in terms of compatibility of the games lineup, the company promises and is committed that these will be compatible when upgrading to Scorpio.
