Microsoft's Official Project Scorpio Page Goes Live
Microsoft is reportedly preparing to make 2017 their year with their upcoming flagship console dubbed the Project Scorpio. It has been speculated that the new gaming system will release sometime this holiday season. Just recently, the company has apparently moved forward with its promotion with a product page for the console that just went live.
It has been observed that the page currently does not allow consumers to pre-order the Scorpio, but fans can supposedly sign up for an email notification once the game system is available for purchase. Game Rant has observed that the product listing does not reveal any new information except for the ones that have been so far released or leaked.
The Project Scorpio product page details claims like the system is "the most powerful console ever with 6 teraflops", which refers to its processing power for graphics. It also boasts about the system being "the first and only" to natively run true 4K entertainment. Lastly, it reinforces Microsoft's assertion that the new game system will be fully backwards-compatible with Xbox One software and accessories.
Consumers can also view the console's official reveal trailer from E3 2016, which also leads players to speculate that the company might officially reveal the game system during their E3 2017 pre-show press conference. Sources have noted that their Twitter posted the message along with an image of the console's components, which is certainly a clue that their show will focus on the new flagship device.
Fans have also reportedly followed Xbox boss Phil Spencer, as sources believe he will post some updates about the Project Scorpio soon. He has been teasing fans for the last few months, according to several reports. A recent announcement has also been reported by Gamenguide that details one of the first games developed for the new game system. Microsoft has apparently confirmed that "Middle-Earth: Shadow of War" is launching for the console.
