Microsoft is expected to release the Xbox Scorpio in 2017 and Aaron Greenberg, the Head of Marketing at Microsoft Xbox division, talked about this premium product, describing it as “the most powerful console ever designed”. He didn’t specify its price, but the media is speculating that it will be sold for less than $1,000.

On the other hand, Greenberg is aware that hardcore gamers are not willing to spend a lot of money to create the perfect game system in 4K, which is why they prefer to play their perfect games on consoles that support this resolution.

There aren’t many known details about the upcoming Xbox Scorpio console, but Greenberg is assuring us that Microsoft will reveal more information in the near future. The release date of this machine hasn’t been set, but media outlets are reporting this will happen in 2017, around Christmas. Greenberg also revealed that the Xbox Scorpio will come with exclusive games for virtual reality:

“Now, with the power and features that give us the machine, we are able to offer hi-fi virtual reality. Now, in that space, I do not think we’re talking about video games, we believe that said virtual reality experiences will offer new things in Scorpio.”

Xbox One owners won’t need to purchase new games in order to play them on the Xbox Scorpio console because they will be compatible with Project Scorpio. This means that even if the console will have improved hardware, it won’t lose compatibility with games and accessories created for the Xbox One. “We want all users to be ready to jump to Scorpio and that content with them. That’s our promise to support” has added Greenberg.

As for the specs of the next gen console, rumors suggest that it will have six teraflops of capacity, be powered by an octa-core processor, and will support 320+ GB/s memory width.
