Microsoft Xbox Project Scorpio Coming Out April 6?

Javier Burns | 04 April, 2017, 05:18

A major retailer is looking to reveal the specs of the Xbox Project Scorpio On Thursday and it will showcase games such as "Red Dead Redemption 2" and Forza Motorsport 7.

Forza Motorsport 7 will work at a 4K resolution on Project Scorpio, and if our data is to be trusted, it appears shocking.

"The list includes some fairly obvious games, such as "Call of Duty", FIFA, and Madden, but also Battlefront 2, and Red Dead Redemption 2".

Microsoft may not have officially revealed anything yet but it seems like this week, we will finally be getting out first solid bit of information regarding Project Scorpio specs. Speaking of Xbox One, it was noted that all titles, except for VR, to be featured on Project Scorpio will also arrive on Xbox One, but with lower resolutions.

Microsoft announced the Xbox One in May, so it wouldn't seem too surprising if the company made a decision to also announce details around Project Scorpio at the same time. With the announcements of PS4 Pro, as said, and Project Scorpio, it seems we're going through a model much more similar to the smartphone/tablet world, where platform holders release new models each year or couple years. The new console could also feature 12GB DDR5 memory instead of Xbox One's ESRAM.

Three storm chasers killed in crash at remote intersection
But one such pursuit ended tragically when three men were killed as their vehicles collided at a rural crossroads. For years, CNN and other national news networks have purchased tornado videos shot by freelance storm chasers.

According to several sources Microsoft is set to unveil some Project Scorpio-related news this week.

Project Scorpio is expected to offer native 4K gaming on its launch titles - something that is now only possible on a handful of PlayStation 4 Pro titles - and could feature an impressive 12GB of RAM, as well as built-in virtual reality support, potentially with the Oculus Rift.

A listing on the website of the Polish retailer Media Markt reveals that "Red Dead Redemption 2" will be out on October 3, which is a Tuesday, a typical day for game releases.

The Xbox Scorpio will reportedly have an impressive lineup of titles they want to use to showcase the console's power boost, including a list of heavy-hitting third-party content. Of course, as with all rumours, we'd advise that you take this with a large sprinkling of that proverbial salt.
