E3 2017 Microsoft Conference: XBox One X (Project Scorpio)

The E3 2017 Microsoft Conference Livestream starts on Sun June 11 at 2pm PST (5pm EST). From what I have read, details on the next console, XBox Project Scorpio, will be revealed there. It is dubbed the most powerful console ever. The video at the bottom showcases the console specs. It is a no-brainer that if Blizzard is developing new games for consoles, it is coming to Scorpio.

UPDATE: Project Scorpio is officially known as XBox One X, and ships on November 7, 2017. Costs $499. Get an email alert to learn when pre-orders open!

Some XBox One games will get a Free 4K DLC update for XBox One X.

    *For the E3 2017 Microsoft Conference, watch the first video. Jump to 59:12 for the beginning of the event. The video is set as adult view, so you must first login to Twitch, then reload this page. Firefox users: If you only see a non-interactive black square instead of the video, try with Google-Chrome.
    **Don’t expect Bungie to showcase Destiny 2 here. Most likely they will at the E3 PlayStation Conference.
