Xbox Scorpio Development Kit Can Display Different Fonts, Videos, and Dolphins

Project Scorpio Developer Kit's front screen is more than just a glorified FPS counter

It has been talked about a lot recently: the development kit version of  Microsoft’s upcoming console code named Project Scorpio is able to display technical information that aims to assist developers. We’ve seen the frame rate counter, but it turns out that the screen is able to do a lot more than that.

Windows Central’s Jez Corden shared a video on Twitter of the front display in action. He describes it as being “fully programmable,” and can be seen cycling through the Developer kit’s front controls.

While we still don’t know what the consumer version of Scorpio will look like, how much it will cost or even what it’ll be called, hopefully it includes dolphins. The kit shown in the video includes the options to display different fonts, videos, and yes, it’s able to display dolphins.

While technical information regarding hardware specs was released earlier this year, we will have more information for you as Microsoft will show off Scorpio at E3 next month.
