A premium Xbox gaming system is on the way, and it’ll have about 30% more computing power and 4.6 times more graphics power than the current Xbox One. Although Microsoft first teased the console—codenamed “Project Scorpio”—last year, the company gave a peak under the hood to Eurogamer, demonstrating 4K resolution gaming at 60 frames per second. Price, release date, and other details were withheld, however, presumably until the E3 trade show in June.
With the new console, Microsoft says it’s trying to win back game makers, who generally preferred the Xbox 360 last generation, but have shown greater affection for Sony’s PlayStation 4 this generation. As the company pushes further into virtual and augmented reality, it’ll need lots of developers to have its back.JN
