Microsoft's director of programming Larry Hryb aka Major Nelson, spoke at PAX Australia 2016 and dropped hints on its forthcoming Project Scorpio., which is set to launch sometime in late 2017. Hryb has been serving Xbox for a long time and the one who's been appearing publicly in most interviews.

According to Game Rant, Hryb gave emphasis on Project Scorpio that the console is about providing fans a choice as to when and how to play games. Hryb said that the moment that the company discloses more information about the Project Scorpio, it would be about choice.

He went on to say that there are people who have the most time and resources to create their own PC with the newest graphics cards available. However, there are also other people who have other commitments and don't have much time with gaming stuff and these folks prefer to just sit down and play downloaded games into a console right away, where the Project Scorpio would be their best option.

In an interview with GameSpot, Hyrb further explained that those folks who prefer to play games without having to undergo the build and tweak process are the perfect target for their latest Project Scorpio. Moreover, it looks like Microsoft is starting to be equipped on taking quality PC gaming and great content although the PC market is hard to take on.

When Project Scorpio was first announced, it wasn't realized as PlayStation 4's direct competitor. Instead it's a more powerful console for high-end gamers, which offers 4K display as well as VR capability as it vows to outperform console competitors to date.

When asked whether the Project Scorpio is departing from Xbox, Hyrb reiterated that the newest console will not be the beginning of a new generation but rather a part of the Xbox family. Moreover, the Project Scorpio is reportedly to be sold at a console price-point.
