Project Scorpio: Xbox Boss Shares New Update

2017 is set to be a big year for Xbox, with the launch of Project Scorpio this holiday. Now, Xbox boss Phil Spencer has shed a little more light on how the system is coming along.

Writing on Twitter, Spencer started off by talking about the games being prepared to launch for the console. “I don’t think we’ve had bring up of full games this early for new [hardware]; gives teams time to tune their games for best results,” he said.

In another tweet, Spencer was asked why he’s even more enthusiastic about the console now compared to when it was announced at E3 last summer. “Actual games running where I can see the fidelity on screen, feel the gameplay,” he said. “For me that’s when it becomes real.”

In other Scorpio news, a report this week claimed to have new information about the console’s RAM details–read the story here. Earlier this week, Spencer said he recently played games on Scorpio for the first time and was impressed. The system will play your existing Xbox One games.

Scorpio is due to launch this holiday, but it remains to be seen when Microsoft will start to show it off. Earlier this month, Spencer said he is unsure if Microsoft will show off the system before E3 in June.

Microsoft has time and again referred to Scorpio as the “most powerful console ever made,” and claimed that the performance advantage over the PS4 Pro will be noticeable.
