Microsoft teasing Xbox Project Scorpio reveal at E3 2017

Microsoft E3 2017 Project Scorpio

Microsoft has officially announced its plans for a press conference at E3 2017, and this year it's coming a bit earlier than usual. An entire day, in fact.

This marks the first year that one of the big three console manufacturers are doing their press conference on a Sunday, which will be June 11 at 2pm PT this year.

The teaser graphic attached to the announcement makes it pretty clear that Project Scorpio, first announced last year as the "most powerful gaming console yet", will be talked about more in-depth, and possibly get a full reveal. Rumors have indicated for a while that Microsoft is aiming for a 2017 release for the console, so an E3 reveal makes a lot of sense if they're aiming for a November launch.

If it does indeed turn out to be a full reveal, expect to hear a more finalized name for the console, as well as whether or not Microsoft plans for it to be its next generation console or if it is only a half-step between Xbox One and whatever is coming after.

Are you glad to hear Microsoft's press conference is being moved to Sunday? And are you looking forward to hearing more about Project Scorpio?


I forgot about Project Scorpio. But honestly, isn't this too soon after having the X1? But as much as they like to market it as the "most powerful gaming console yet," it'll surely get beaten by Sony after they reveal their spec. Sony will have time to improve on it. Then MS will try to improve above the PS5 and so on. Not the greatest slogan in my opinion. On a side note, I think Nintendo is doing much better with advertising the Switch.

I am not glad it's moving to Sunday. I have work on Sunday! Should've kept the tradition to Mondays-Wed since I'm off those days. Man ever since I started working I got the first time ever missing thing lol. As long as I don't miss E3. Hopefully Sony isn't on Sunday too otherwise no point in watching E3 and just watch trailers or read Jason's threads.


Anyways I'm curious and excited to know about this Scorpio. Feels like it's too soon for a console, but I think this year is probably a devlelopment or in look preview to know what's ahead in Microsoft's future.
