Moon Studios CEO Calls PS4 Pro Half-Assed Upgrade Compared To Project Scorpio

When it comes to consoles, there will always be fans eager to duke it out over which is better. However, it’s always exciting when developers chime in with their thoughts on the upcoming projects, one of the latest comes from Thomas Mahler, CEO of Moon Studios.

Thomas Mahler’s company brought out Ori and the Blind Forest for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC platform. The company head recently took to NeoGaf when a discussion came across the upcoming Project Scorpio, the upgraded console for Microsoft’s Xbox One.

As it turns out, Thomas Mahler see’s Project Scorpio as the upcoming console to top the current generation consoles as a whole. In fact, the CEO of Moon Studios finds that PlayStation 4 Pro is nothing more than a half-assed upgrade when compared to the Project Scorpio release.

“Scorpio is a next-gen machine with the added benefit that all your old games will still be compatible. From this point on, similar to PCs, you’ll not lose your library when you buy a next-gen system. I guess since NeoGAF is confused, Microsoft will need to do a little work to make it clear to everyone that Scorpio isn’t just a half-assed upgrade (which the PS4 Pro kinda is…), but a full blown next-gen machine that’s just backwards-compatible to your current library.”

We still don’t know too much about the upcoming Project Scorpio console. There’s a good chance more information regarding the console will be released during E3 of this year. Regardless, it’s interesting that a developer opted to give his views on the upcoming release from Microsoft and how it compares to the PS4 Pro.
