Microsoft's Project Scorpio, the codename for its next generation console, has been said to feature new visual language design. The new visual language design is supposedly called 'Motion' and aims to take advantage of the Scorpio's high-performance's specs.

Microsoft Project Scorpio to feature new visual language design called 'Motion'. There is nothing of concrete nature that is known of Scorpio except that it will be the tech giant's next-generation console after the Xbox One. However, it was reported just recently that the console will feature a new visual language design called Motion which will focus on giving the ultimate graphics interface experience.

The goal of Motion will most likely be achieved due to the speculated 6 teraflops of graphical process power as mentioned by Eric Fiscus, a software design engineer at Microsoft. Fiscus, via a post on his LinkedIn profile, teased the Motion as currently being prototyped. The post has since been deleted.

It is expected that Motion will provide Scorpio with new user interface features built on top of the current capabilities of the Xbox One UI. Scorpio's robust UI will be able to let Scorpio run Windows apps that are currently too draining for the Xbox One.

The Redmond-based tech giant plans to use the new software redesign of the Scorpio as the ultimate reason to buy the console this coming holiday season. Project Scorpio is expected to compete directly with Sony's upcoming PS4 Pro and the Nintendo Switch.

It was initially thought that Scorpio would make use of Project Neon, a language based on the MDL2 design and aims to give Windows 10 a smoother and more fluid user interface. Project Neon has also made its way to the Xbox One via the Creators Update providing the current flagship console with a faster dashboard, an all-new Homescreen, and Beam integration. Scorpio is expected to retain this enhancements plus more.
