Windows Central claims that the new Project Scorpio console will not go back to the power-brick design, and will instead mimic the Xbox One S internal power supply.

According to a recent report from Windows Central, several rumors and sources indicate that the Project Scorpio will be utilizing an HEVC feature as well as the VP9 codec for the goal of streaming 4K videos. Scorpio is all about taking advantage of higher Ultra-HD resolutions, so the console will also feature HEVC and VP9 codecs for decoding 4K streams but will also be capable of HEVC encoding for 4K video capture at 60 frames per second. Perhaps Microsoft will also allow users to stream 4K gameplay to Beam, the live streaming service the company acquired past year.

Xbox One exclusive games for 2017 and beyond Fri, December 2, 2016, Microsoft's next wave of Xbox One exclusives include Sea of Thieves, Halo Wars 2, Crackdown 3 and more. If the latest reports are to be believed, the highly anticipated Microsoft console is really something to watch out for not only because it can run 4K videos but, allegedly, will allow its users to record game videos in the same capacity, too.
