    Project Scorpio E3 Briefing.jpg
    With Microsoft set to reveal more details about its next generation 'Project Scorpio' console, catch the E3 Expo briefing live from LA at 10:00pm BST tonight.

    Destined to be the 'next big thing' in console gaming, the tentatively titled 'Project Scorpio' has displayed all the early signs of being something of a game changer for console gamers in 2017. Built to the usual quality standards expected by a Microsoft product, the 'Scorpio' looks set to replace the current generation Xbox One.

    Set to become the most powerful console ever, featuring 6 Teraflops of graphical processing power, true 4K gaming, and compatibility with Xbox One games and accessories, Scorpio should be making a considerable impact once officially revealed to the world tonight at E3.



    Only time will tell exactly what the new product has in store, but while we await the official reveal briefing here are a few of the facts we know about the new console:

    • 4K Gaming
    • 6 Teraflop GPU
    • 2.3 GHz Custom CPU
    • 1TB HDD Storage
    • 12 GB GDDR5 Memory
    • 326 GB/s Memory Bandwidth
    • HDR Games & Entertainment
    • 4K UHD Blu-ray/DVD

    With E3 also expected to reveal the first details of racing title Forza Motorsport 7, scheduled to hit the Scorpio console and PC for the first time, it is going to be a big few days of news for racing game fans and gamers in general.

    Happy viewing everyone!

    Yeah but on the other hand kinda look like first time a console will arrive with "current" hardware and considering the price video cards and processors will have to go cheaper to compete, especially the high end 4k stuff (yeah I know consoles may have less quality in 4k for now, but the average gamer won't care)

    The Scorpio looks like an absolute beast. To add what @Will Mazeo said, hopefully, prices for PC components will drop somewhat if they want to compete.

    they compete by being pc components :rolleyes: its impossible to compete with consoles in terms of price, thats their selling point (in xbox case only selling point)
    Ofc cheaper components are welcomed

    Console still has crap support for steering wheels meaning it will never be an option for me.
    Think it may be able to run Halo with less jaggies though but that's hardly a reason to upgrade. Plus I don't have either a 4k or VR set up so worthless to me really.

    I'll be buying the X, or at least trading the One S, although with play anywhere there is becoming less of a reason for the consoles. I was hoping they might have added Oculus support as it probably has enough GPU power being similar to the GTX 1070. Forza 7 is looking great, looks like they've got a much better weather system this time so I'm hoping they also improved the wheel support. Forza is an instant preorder for me, in any case, plenty of value per £ in those games while the PC offers the more serious sims.

    I guess €600 for sure.

    $499, or £449. That's around €450 I think.

    Impressive bit of hardware, but they stayed very quiet on VR.

    Forza 7 has dropped any idea of realism and has just become Forza Horizons. Didn't look much fun to me.

    $499 is usually 499 EUR + tax in Europe. It can't be 450 EUR if it's £449.
