Microsoft reveals Xbox Scorpio might be the last company console


With Microsoft set to release their Xbox One Scorpio system next spring, some major news regarding the future of consoles as a whole has surfaced. In an interview at Gamescom, Xbox games marketing head Aaron Greenberg, insisted that Microsoft believes the end of console generations is near – with Sony’s PlayStation Neo 4K and their high-end console being the last.

Nintendo is taking a different approach to gaming, with the release of their NX device – which should be an indication of the similar approach both Sony and Microsoft plan to take before 2020.

Greenberg on the future of console gaming:

“We think the future is without console generations. For us, 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.”
