Odds are heavily in favor of Microsoft shedding further spotlight on the hotly anticipated Xbox Scorpio, which is tipped for release just before the Christmas holiday season starts later this year.
Microsoft made an official announcement of the E3 press event held last year.
The next step-change for gamers and developers must deliver true 4K gaming and high-fidelity VR experiences to the console. To that end, we were happy to announce the next addition to the Xbox One family: Project Scorpio.
When it ships next year, Project Scorpio will be our most powerful console ever built, specifically to lead the industry into a future in which true 4K gaming and high-fidelity VR are the standard, not an exception.
Project Scorpio will be the first console with 6 teraflops of power, which will empower the world’s greatest game creators to fully embrace true 4K gaming without sacrificing quality, generate premier VR experiences, without sacrificing performance, and putting greater graphic fidelity in the hands of the world’s best game creators.
Best of all, Xbox One, Xbox One S and Project Scorpio will all be compatible. All Xbox One games and accessories will play on each device. It’s very important to us that no one gets left behind, which is a big part of why we view Project Scorpio as a new way of thinking about consoles and generations.
E3 event is scheduled for June 13 – 15, 2017, at Los Angeles Convention Center. Xbox fans should mark this date on their calendars as something big is in the offing.
