Xbox Scorpio Specs Revealed Today Will Be Surprising News  Xbox Scorpio Scorpio Microsoft

Microsoft’s Project Scorpio will get a reveal of some sort later today.  Microsoft has decided to make their second big splash of information about the console to Digital Foundry, a highly respected arm of Eurogamer that delves into the nitty gritty technical details of video game software and hardware.

So just what will be revealed about Project Scorpio today?  According to a Senior Editor at The Verge, Tom Warren, it’s unlikely that we’ll hear the actual name of the console or what it looks like.  Instead, Microsoft will focus on the hardware specs of the console, which have been the most controversial part about it since its E3 reveal.

The controversial announcement of a new, more powerful Xbox console from Microsoft has led to plenty of conversations about what Microsoft’s intentions with the Scorpio are.  Would they be going the road of Sony and the PlayStation 4 Pro?  If they were going for a machine powerful enough to deliver true 4K gaming, how would they keep the price at a point where it’s palatable for consumers?

While we likely won’t get those specific details today, apparently Warren also believes that they will be revealing information about the CPU architecture that could shed some light on these questions.

We wont have to wait long to hear what Microsoft has to say about the Xbox Scorpio.  The reveal of the Xbox Scorpio console is slated for 6am Pacific.

      that what Xbox fan boys said before E3 2013

        Back before they didn’t know the specs of either eighth generation console.We know that Scorpio is more powerful than the Pro by default.

        • Lacerz

          Xbox still has no games. All the power in the world won’t change that.

          • Ventus-kun

            The majority of people I know who have an XB1 play multi-plats. Personally, I love ReCore, H5, Quantum Break & MCC. I have several indie titles as well, but I don’t know if they’re multi-plats. I also use backwards compatibility a lot and money is always sparse in a small town, so I don’t care about exclusives. When looking at a game to buy I don’t go “Oh, it’s not an exclusive? Not gonna buy”.

            Besides, I would have thought enough of Xbox players who don’t own PCs that notice performance issues would get Scorpio, providing the price isn’t high. After seeing both videos, I’m astounded at what it can do, but going above £500 is essentially suicide in the console market.

      Flop incoming, possible shutdown of entire Xbox brand if this hail mary doesn’t work.

  • Game Over

    This console could make gold bricks Microsoft will never get another dime from me.

  • The Glorious Master Race

    No matter how powerful it will still be behind PC, where Microsoft releases all of their exclusives anyway.

      Personally I like the PS4 Pro. It might not be as powerful as a 2000 dollar PC but its a good compromise. If Scorpio is reasonable price and more powerful than Pro I wll buy Day One.

    Fatty…. Where are you….

    Yeah, I’m surprised… that they’re so disappointing. not as bad as PS4 Pro obviously but they could have definitely thrown in a better CPU and not wasted so much ram.
