That Xbox Dev Kit Has An FPS Display On The Front

We've talked about the Project Scorpio dev kit in the past, but as we draw closer to E3, we're finding out little pieces of information that are either useless or kinda interesting. Take, for example, this little piece of news that's been circulating today as we see the dev kit has an FPS display on the front.

Almost like having a clock on the front, the dev kit shows a continuous FPS counter to show how well your frame rate is holding up as you play through whatever game is loaded. This is essentially real-time data that is crucial for creators to see as they produce materials to work on the new console. A lot of people are freaking out about the five buttons you see above as well as all the USB ports and drives on the side, but beyond guesswork, no one truly knows what's going to be included on the system and what it does until the E3 reveal. In the meantime, it's cool to know that designers are seeing exactly how their game turns out for visual quality, which means if we end up getting a terrible looking game down the road, we know the company saw it and probably choce to not care about it.
