Xbox Exec Teases Xbox Scorpio Project After 'Scalebound' Cancellation

A fan asked Spencer on Twitter if there was a chance that the product of Xbox Project Scorpio would be showcased before the E3 2017 in June. Interestingly, Microsoft also claimed that Xbox One was the only current-generation console that had a year-on-year growth. The estimated price in the United States has ranged from $399 to $550, but surely Microsoft will need to deliver a console at the lower end of that price range in order to be competitive.

On a good note, Spencer shared that there is great progress in the console's development.

NPD Group numbers indicate that the PlayStation 4 has managed to overcome the Xbox One in sales, shortly after it managed to take the top spot in November with the help of the PlayStation Pro, which released around that time.

Earlier this month, Sony revealed in a press release that PlayStation 4 has passed 53.4 million sales worldwide, 6.2 million of which were sold during the third financial quarter. Instead, it will use an existing VR headset such as the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive. Microsoft is actually making "true 4K gaming" the selling point of the upcoming console. Nothing is confirmed at this stage, but considering the Windows-leaning nature of the contemporary Microsoft console, it wouldn't be surprising if Oculus Rift was favoured. Microsoft will learn once they dispatch Project Scorpio that power makes no difference without having a quality select line up brimming with assortment.

This surely is exciting for all Xbox players out there.

Another interesting aspect of the Xbox Project Scorpio will be its strong ties with Windows 10, and the inclusion of a Game Mode to benefit gaming on the console. Microsoft has not yet made confirmations or indications as to how much the Xbox One Scorpio will be priced at. He evaluated the status of the "Crackdown 3", also an exclusive Xbox One game, and said that the game was in shape and well planned.
