Microsoft has finally revealed its long awaited, rumored high end new console, code-named as Xbox One Scorpio during its E3 press conference moments ago.
According to Microsoft, this Project Scorpio is ‘the most powerful console ever built‘ and set for release during holidays 2017. The announcement was made by Xbox head Phil Spencer where he officially announced the development of a new high end console and revealed some of the details of this project.
According to The Verge, he said;
“The important thing for Scorpio is that it’s a dramatic step up for us in terms of hardware capability,”
“Because as we saw 4K gaming and really high-end VR taking off in the PC space, we wanted to be able to bring that to console. Project Scorpio is actually an Xbox One that can natively run games in 4K and is built with the hardware capabilities to support the high-end VR that you see happening in the PC space today… when it ships it will be the most powerful console ever built.”
Microsoft’s new Xbox One console will go head to head against rivalry PlayStation 4 Neo, Sony’s new 4K and VR supported console which it confirmed two days ago.
