This is certainly harder than I thought it would be. I dunno if I'll get this boss walkthrough completed. >_<

Microsoft Unveils Two New Xbox One Revisions – Xbox One S And Xbox One: Project Scorpio – E3 2016

Microsoft Unveils Two New Xbox One Revisions – Xbox One S And Xbox One: Project Scorpio – E3 2016

Microsoft has book-ended their E3 2016 press events with announcements of their long-rumored updates to the Xbox One Hardware.

The first announcement was the confirmation that we broke yesterday. A slimmer, more streamlined version of the Xbox One is on the verge of hitting the market. The Xbox One S will be 40 % smaller, allow 4K resolution, have an internal power supply, and a 2TB hard drive. The device will also ship with a redesigned Xbox One Controller, with a textured grip.

The Xbox One S will be released in August for $299.

 

The second update Xbox One will be the expanded, more powerful version of the hardware, called Xbox Box One: Project Scorpio.

Microsoft is designing the Xbox One: Project Scorpio to be the most powerful console ever developed.

The new console will have a 6 tera-flop processor, capable of rendering fully uncompressed textures. Xbox One: Scorpio will also have a 320gb per second bandwidth.

 

Microsoft head, Phil Spencer noted that Microsoft Xbox One games will all share the same eco-system, so games designed to run on Xbox One: Project Scorpio will also be able to run, albeit at a lower resolution, on both the original Xbox One, as well as the Xbox One S.

The Xbox One: Project Scorpio is expected to launch during the holiday season in 2017.

What do you think of the new Xbox One hardware announcements? Are you going to grab a snazzy Xbox One S, or are you going to hold out for the beastly Xbox One: Project Scorpio? Let us know in the comments section below.

  1. Something about waiting a year and a half for the Project Scorpio is odd… I understand that it’ll take some time to develop. But I feel like their “bravado” will be less impressive by the time it releases because surrounding technology will be more “on par” with the system. Also, with the NX having been released by then (assuming it is), isn’t there a chance that an upgraded Xbox One system will be old news? It’ll be like the Sega 32X. At that point, might it be worth just releasing it as a new system in a new generation? I understand the pros and cons to releasing a new system, but c’mon. People will have to trade in their old Xbox Ones to GameStop for $8.50 per unit just so they can get the new one!
