Microsoft Store Page Now Lists Project Scorpio

Project Scorpio now has its very own product page, thanks to Microsoft updating its Store over the weekend.

According to the listing, Project Scorpio is on schedule for a worldwide release during the holiday season. The product description doesn’t reveal a price tag. It, though, does reiterate some of the more profound features of the upcoming console upgrade from the company:

  • The most powerful console ever with 6 teraflops of graphical processing power
  • The first and only console to enable true 4K gaming and high-fidelity virtual reality
  • Compatible with all Xbox One games and accessories

Those interested can provide their email addresses to be notified for more upcoming details on Project Scorpio.

Product pages usually arrive with the option of pre-ordering. The unavailability of a pre-order button is unsurprising since Xbox boss Phil Spencer previously requested the community to first wait for the console’s reveal and specific details before deciding to make a purchase.

There is still uncertainty around when Microsoft plans to fully unveil the console. While the community is naturally assuming Project Scorpio details to arrive during the company’s press briefing at E3 2017, there are hints that Microsoft may host an exclusive event beforehand. It is possible that we get to see the console for the first time before E3 2017, leaving Microsoft ample time to talk about upcoming games and features.

Project Scorpio will feature a “premium” price tag, meaning that it will be more expensive than the Xbox One. Going with the information at hand, it could cost owners over $300.

Despite the hype around Project Scorpio, Microsoft believes that Xbox One S will still be the best seller for the company. Project Scorpio is designed for power-hungry users, and a high price tag reflect that. Both console iterations are expected to pave the way for Microsoft into a new era of gaming for its loyal consumer-base.
