We do not know whether American multinational technology company Microsoft would hold a pre-E3 show to announce Scorpio or not, which is similar to what Sony did with the PS4 Pro. Phil Spencer, the head of Xbox, has already confirmed that gaming console Xbox 2 promised to be most powerful console ever built. He made this announcement at the end of E3 2016. With more and more details of the gaming console is slowly getting revealed, his statements are turning out to be true, although nothing can be officially confirmed as of now.
In a blog post, Spencer has stated that they would do the complete release of Xbox 2 at E3 2017, which means on June 11, Sunday at 2PM PDT/5PM EDT, the specifications on the Xbox 2 will finally be known. On the other hand, Aaron Greenberg of Microsoft has said that his company is working to learn from the feedbacks of Project Scorpio and if it turns out to be a success, the future of consoles will be completely evolved. Moreover, leaving aside VR titles, Scorpio is not thinking on having any unique games. It means that the new games will also work on your older system.
After the release of PlayStation 4, it is very tough to answer whether it is a next generation console or something just iterative similar to the Pro, which Sony has vehemently made it clear is not the PS5. The Xbox 2 (Project Scorpio) would come with native 4K and hi-fidelity VR. It is something which just a very powerful PC can offer. Developed and is owned by Microsoft, Xbox is a video game brand. It suggests to a number of gaming consoles developed by them. It was launched in the year 2001 in the USA. Information regarding the latest console, Xbox One S, a thinner version of Xbox one, was announced last year in June, 2016.
All of the points mentioned here really makes it extremely difficult to say whether Project Scorpio is in fact Xbox 2 or not. Microsoft has been referring to the trio of consoles of Xbox One, Xbox One S and Xbox 2/Project Scorpio as Xbox Family. As a result, it means that no gamer will be left behind. In other words, one can play it one any of the console within that family.
