Microsoft’s E3 press conference was leaked ahead of E3 and we knew pretty much everything that was about to happen. We knew about Xbox One S, we had images and videos for Dead Rising 4, Forza Horizon 3 was leaked among others.

However, what we didn’t see coming was Project Scorpio. No one was expecting to see Microsoft talk about the new machine at this year’s E3. According to Sony’s President of Worldwide Studios, Shuhei Yoshida, Sony was very surprised to see Phil Spencer discuss Project Scorpio.

Yoshida said that it is “very very Super interesting” what they are doing. But Andrew House recently went on to say that it was a mistake announcing Scorpio so soon.

The console market is changing and in the future console could be more like budget PCs, closed platform mentality of hardware creators fading quickly.

Scorpio is going to put out 4K gaming with HDR and other features included. Of course, you will need a 4K tv with HDR support to fully benefit from Project Scorpio.

Project Scorpio is actually an Xbox One that can natively run games in 4K and is built with the hardware capabilities to support the high-end VR that you see happening in the PC space today… when it ships it will be the most powerful console ever built.

Microsoft is claiming 4K native gaming which won’t be easy to do. Also, not all games will look better on Project Scorpio. Phil Spencer has made it clear that if you don’t own a 4K Tv, Xbox 4K aka Project Scorpio won’t be able to do much for you so it better to stick with Xbox One.

Project Scorpio will release in Fall 2017.

Meanwhile, PlayStation 4 Neo is apparently being revealed at PlayStation Experience. Neo is Sony’s answer to Microsoft’s Scorpio and vise versa, both consoles will go head to head next year.

Do you think Microsoft announced Scorpio a little early?
