Project Scorpio News: Microsoft Ditched ONE Xbox One Feature for Xbox Scorpio

Upon the release of Xbox Scorpio full specs reveal, it came to light that Microsoft has one less feature on the new Xbox Scorpio than the Xbox One.

Microsoft recently revealed the Project Scorpio’s full specs via the Eurogamer’s Digital Foundry. The Digital Foundry revealed that Microsoft’s wonderful new console is not going to have the “Kinect Port” on the console.

The good news is the Kinect will still be available to enjoy via an adapter for the console. However, this particular break won’t hurt anybody who owns an Xbox One S console. Similar to the Project Scorpio, Xbox One S also doesn’t have the Kinect Port and that players who want to use it can have the adapter.

Another, lacking thing in Xbox Scorpio is that it doesn’t also have a big power brick. It adds up to the immense power of the Xbox Scorpio with the most compact hardware installed.

The Final Form Factor of the Microsoft’s innovative new console is still not revealed. Microsoft has promised to release some more of the info on the Project Scorpio at E3 gaming expo in June 2017.
