Microsoft has revealed the dates for its E3 2017 press briefing and it takes place before the annual event is scheduled to kick off.
According to the announcement, the company will host its conference on June 11 at the Galen Center in Los Angeles. The show will begin sharply at 2 p.m. PDT / 5 p.m. EDT and like always, will be streamed live for those unable to attend in person.
Previously, it was rumored that Microsoft is considering to host an exclusive event this year to reveal Project Scorpio. This led many to believe that we might not hear about the upcoming console upgrade at E3 2017. However, that does not appear to be the case.
Microsoft is teasing Project Scorpio for the the main event which means that we will finally get to see the console with our eyes. The company is likely the follow by announcing multiple titles for the console in order to give us more incentives for a purchase. Also expect more insight on the beefy hardware and other advantages that Project Scorpio will bring to the market. Most importantly, we will finally get to know what Microsoft has decided to name the console.
Project Scorpio has so far been touted by the company as the “most powerful” console every built. Last year, Microsoft revealed that the console features an 8-core CPU, with a GPU capable of 6 teraflops of computing power. This would make it 4.5 times as powerful as the one in Xbox One.
Additionally, Project Scorpio is fully capable for providing “true 4K gaming” that is native and not scaled, as well as “high-fidelity” virtual reality experience.
Similar to PlayStation 4 Pro, there will be no exclusive games for Project Scorpio. All titles will arrive for both consoles, except that the Project Scorpio version will feature numerous enhancements. That being said, you will still need a proper 4K TV to reap the benefits from the console.
