Just last night, I was talking with the rest of the team regarding several items that Microsoft must address in 2017. The first of which was being completely transparent regarding their upcoming 4K console, Project Scorpio. Now we have the head of Xbox games marketing, Aaron Greenberg, taking to Twitter already and promoting Project Scorpio.
The year 2017 is the year of the Scorpio, as he puts it. I certainly hope he’s right.

Well, that’s a start, at least. However, Microsoft has a lot to prove regarding their potential 4K killer console. We need talks about the specs, pricing and what exactly will gamers be able to do with that power. Yes, games, Aaron. We need to know what games will be powered by this beast and how many.
Of course, I’ll be happy if they can confirm that Project Scorpio will be able to give us a constant 1080p@60fps and 4k@30fps experience. If they can do this, then they will have my wallet open.
Oh and don’t give it a lame name. Not Xbox Pro, not Xbox 1.5, make it exciting, please!
