Surprising literally no one, Microsoft are planning to unveil Project Scorpio and what it truly means for the future of the platform at E3 this year, their press conference planned for Sunday 11th June at 2PM PT, which works out as 10PM in the UK.
We already know the overarching vision for Project Scorpio, as Microsoft follow Sony in releasing a more powerful iteration of their console, targeting 4K gaming in the process. The company have been pretty confident in stating that they’re gunning for true 4K gaming, without resorting to tricks like checker boarding as the PS4 Pro does. Given the variation that we see with PS4 Pro compatible games, it will be fascinating to see how comprehensively Microsoft can deliver on that plan.
To be fair, they could have held the Scorpio unveil at another time in the year, but E3 makes the most sense by far, having already announced the project at E3 last year. Here’s hoping it also comes alongside a raft of major new and returning exclusives.
