Microsoft's Xbox One didn't have the same victory as Sony's PlayStation 4 when it was released but Microsoft hopes to pull through the missed triumph with its forthcoming Xbox Project Scorpio. The console is set to launch in the second half of 2017. The Project Scorpio is the next-generation console of Microsoft Corporation, something that the company said will outperform the Sony PS4.

The Project Scorpio will also provide a dimension that will leap over PlayStation 4 and PS4 Neo with improved memory and graphical abilities. Its six TF of GPU power outnumbers the PS4 Pro's 4.14 TF. It will also offer remarkable gaming experience where some of Xbox One games will actually look different and might run a little better.

The Project Scorpio has also the capability to deliver visual details at 60 Hz, which is a huge advantage though the console's power will not totally depend on the GPU, according to Games Farm CEO Peter Nagy. The console will also sport an octa-core processor and it will be launched alongside a VR headset, which will be compatible will all games of Xbox One as well as accessories.

Additionally, the Project Scorpio was designed as a response for the 4K gaming expansions as well as Virtual Reality in the high-end PC market. The existing Xbox One games will also have performance improvements.

According to Neuro Gadget, the Xbox Project Scorpio will cost $800 although the Xbox One S is way cheaper, which costs between $300 and $449. The Xbox One S HDR games that people can buy for the Project Scorpio are "Gears of War 4," "Resident Evil 7 Biohazard," "World of Tanks," "Forza Horizon 3," "Final Fantasy XV," "NBA 2K17," "Pure Chess Ultra" and "Hitman."
