Microsoft’s next big console, “Project Scorpio,” was revealed just under a month ago. It’s meant to be the most powerful console ever built, unless Sony’s Project Taurus can has anything to say about that. Y’know, because Taurus is the opposite of Scorpio?
Anyway, if you’re wondering just how you might get your hands on the Scorpio come its release, then here’s a pretty viable solution. Trade in your Xbox One.
Don’t thank me. Thank Dave McCarthy – General Manager of Xbox Services. McCarthy reckons that the transition can be made easier through retail partners’ numerous trade-in programs.
Some of our retail partners today do trade-in programs and that’s definitely going to be partnerships we continue to move going forward.
He goes on to say the following, in regards to making the switch from One to Scorpio:
We want to make that transition as smooth as possible.
McCarthy was also quick to shoot down fears of incompatibility problems between the consoles. Ensuring that the community won’t need to miss out on upcoming games, he said:
The compatibility thing is a big deal, because you feeling you have to give up your games isn’t a good feeling, so we take that angst out of the equation.
And elaborating further:
We are making a meaningful step with Project Scorpio in supporting 4K gaming. But you don’t have to worry about that as a gamer, because the games you already own on Xbox One, the ones you’re going to buy this year and in the future will work across the family of devices.
The family of devices being what’s currently referred to as the “Xbox One Family” – the Xbox One, the Xbox One Slim, and the Scorpio.
We’ll have more on the Scorpio as it draws closer to release – keep an eye on Fraghero for all the best on the upcoming console.
