We’re just hours away from Microsoft dropping all the new details on its upgraded Xbox system at the Electronic Entertainment Expo trade show in Los Angeles, and the leaks have started during into a steady stream of information.
Xbox Scorpio is the name of the new Xbox, according to an advertisement on Best Buy’s website.
Previously, Microsoft referred to the system, which is significantly more powerful than the Xbox One, as simply “Project Scorpio.” This new system is still, fundamentally, an Xbox One in that it can play all the same games and should have many of the same features, but Microsoft designed it to render 4K games and other visually impressive capabilities.
Microsoft has said it will launch later this year, and some rumors are claiming it will retail for $500.
The company plans to spend a significant amount of its briefing talking about how the Scorpio is the most powerful console ever, and the quest is whether it will have unique games to drive the point home.
