Microsoft’s Project Scorpio is indeed a very impressive gaming console. This device has a tremendous processing power combined with an elegant design, and Microsoft proudly boasts about it, claiming it’s the most powerful console ever built.

If you’re still thinking whether to buy an Xbox One S or wait for Project Scorpio, maybe the latest information Microsoft has revealed about the latter can help you make up your mind.

Aaron Greenberg, Microsoft’s head of Xbox games marketing confirmed that Project Scorpio will receive exclusive VR games, that will definitely take advantage of the power and capabilities this console brings to the table.

Now, with the power and capabilities we have, we’ll be able to do high-fidelity VR. Now, that space, we don’t think of that as console gaming, we think of that as high-fidelity VR, and so with the VR experiences those will be new things that you will get on Project Scorpio.

Also, Project Scorpio marks the end of console generations, as Microsoft is betting it all on this console model. Greenberg’s words “We think the future is without console generations”, suggest that Project Scorpio could be the last console generation Microsoft has built, provided that Project Scorpio becomes a hit among fans. The tech giant could obviously change its strategy if fans won’t offer Project Scorpio a warm welcome.

For us, we think the future is without console generations; we think that the ability to build a library, a community, to be able to iterate with the hardware — we’re making a pretty big bet on that with Project Scorpio.

Project Scorpio is scheduled for release in the fourth quarter of 2017, and we expect it to cost around $499.
