Gamespot:Xbox Scorpio Dev Kit's Built-In Screen Can Show More Than Just Framerates

There are more mundane options, such as displaying different fonts, as well as one that allows it to display actual videos--the example we see shows computer-generated dolphins swimming around.

Impressive Hardware to be honest.

Thats pretty cool, would be good if you could get small animations related to the game you are playing.

As it's only dev hardware, and the screen won't be in the consumer version of the pro, I'm not sure what use the devs would have for those animations.

Edit, saw it, now it's gone.

lol, no thanks. I'd rather keep my attention focused on the one big expensive screen in my room.

Would be cool if you could use that screen to play games.

medman1385d ago

Microsoft has already said the screen won't be in consumer versions of the Scorpio.

I believe the dev can use it for the game so they don't need a seperate screen if they have multiple dev kits
