Microsoft has said that this could be the last generation of consoles as it looks to take a more unified approach going forward.
Speaking to Eurogamer at Gamescom, the company's Aaron Greenberg said that, "we think the future is without console generations; we think that the ability to build a library, a community, to be able to iterate with the hardware -- we're making a pretty big bet on that with Project Scorpio. We're basically saying, This isn't a new generation; everything you have continues forward and it works. We think of this as a family of devices."
Greenberg did seem to suggest that if the console is a huge success then this may change, but for now that's the plan.
"We're going to learn from this, we're going to see how that goes. So far I'd say, based on the reaction, there appears to be a lot of demand and interest around Project Scorpio, and we think it's going to be a pretty big success. If the games and the content deliver, which I think they will do, I think it will change the way we think about the future of console gaming."
While Project Scorpio will not have any exclusive games, with all games working on all systems, be that Xbox One, Xbox One S or Scorpio, Microsoft has confirmed that VR will have exclusive games on Scorpio.
"On that space, we don't think of that as console gaming, we think of that as high-fidelity VR, and so with the VR experiences those will be new things that you will get on Project Scorpio."
