With Project Scorpio’s official launch set for this holiday season, there are still a number of important unanswered questions about Microsoft’s upgraded Xbox One console.
New information, however, indicates that we may get our first glimpse at the console later this week, rather than later this year at E3 in June. Rumours first emerged from reports in the media, followed by Phil Spencer, the head of all things Xbox at Microsoft, backing up these claims with his own cryptic tweet, saying that “you’ll hear more soon. Sorry for the wait.”

Now tech-focused publication Digital Foundry says that it will “exclusively” reveal Scorpio on EuroGamer this Thursday at 6am P.T. 9am E.T. It’s unlikely that Microsoft will give the publication all the details related to Scorpio, though we’ll probably get a first glimpse at the system’s final technical specifications.
It’s expected that Microsoft’s June E3 presentation will be primarily focused on Project Scorpio, though it’s possible the company could plan to reveal key details like price and launch titles ahead of this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo.
Project Scorpio will work with all Xbox One games and peripherals, but features 6 teraflops of performance, 8CPU cores and 320GB/s memory bandwidth, which Microsoft says makes the still unannounced system the most powerful console ever made
@dragen_Light Yea, I know why you ask. We are very happy with what we are seeing from 1P and 3P, you'll hear more soon. Sorry for the wait.

Sony recently released the PlayStation 4 Pro, an upgraded version of its PS4, though few current titles take full advantage of the system’s hardware.
