Yea, I know why you ask. We are very happy with what we are seeing from 1P and 3P, you'll hear more soon. Sorry for the wait.

Interesting to show it off in early april, i guess they want to get the hardware stuff out of the way so they can focus on games at E3.

I like this strategy, spread the news out a little more so we got something to talk about during non-E3 time.

Regardless of when Project Scorpio will be shown off, be it next week or at E3 2017, I am very excited to see the future of Xbox.

Excited if true

Waited on seeing the Scorpio before I chose which midgenerational console I wanted to upgrade to

I want to believe, as I'm beyond ready to see it fully unveiled, but wouldn't the press have received their invites by now?

e: nvm, just saw the Tweet about a site having exclusive rights, hmm

Thanks MB.

I also wonder if this is going to be a full blown reveal. Next week is going to be interesting. Maybe we'll finally get to see how much truth to that DF leak was true.

If true , then it's very intresting. Show the console first , then the games/services during E3

Waiting for next week for news. hopefully this will be worth it.

EDIT : Or is it the teasing of the annoncement of an annoncement ?

Excited to finally see if I'm correct about the new Xbox Platform. (Not just Scorpio)

This is very much going to be like Office when they turned that into a platform vs a product.

Hopefully what he says is legit. Looking forward to them revealing what this thing is, in its entirety.

Tech breakdown only or the box right there for all to see?

Going for former but with game videos.

I think if Digital Foundry has it then we will get 360 BC, Xbox One BC and Scorpio improvement articles plus the big breakdown of the specs and stuff.

Whatever they do, please show some games instead of Commentary by the developers.That will itself be a good pre E3 show.

Neat! Really eager to see what they have in store. I won't be hopping in (right away) since I'm super happy with my PC, PS4 Pro and Switch, but I'm excited to see what's next for Xbox!

I hope we see Halo 6/Sea Of Thieves. Bit too early for a concrete price/release date?
It is my understanding that Eurogamer's article is going to focus on Scorpio specs and the console's overall approach, not games.

That said, with basic specs more or less already known, I am really curious which additional information they gathered (especially with regard to the CPU). What I don't expect is any word on price and new games.

I'm tempering my expectations to be a reveal of looks and finalized specs/features. That info doesn't really play at E3 any more, so why not get it out of the way early? We MIGHT see a game, but I would assume just a tease of something that will be shown in full at E3.

Still, excited!

Cool for the people who like Xbox. It most likely wont interest me though, but I'll be looking forward to it, since I like any kind of hardware announcement.

Hmm, IGN or Gameinformer?
show off by a Third party site? IGN I'm assuming. Any other guesses?
My thought is maybe it's a game reveal, and it will be showing off the Scorpio enhanced version. It would technically be "showing off" the Scorpio that way!

It is my understanding that Eurogamer's article is going to focus on Scorpio specs and the console's overall approach, not games.

I'd be up for that!

This seems incredibly likely

i said it in the other thread but i wouldn't be surprised if Eurogamer/Digital Foundry have had access to a dev kit but the following tweet mentioning "exclusive" information is a bit weird

I can't wait to see this console, after the One S and surface etc MS have been designing some damn sexy hardware.

I hope that they are going to focus on more exclusive games for it and the Xbox one they need to show more support as it's the only thing that has put me off the brand recently.

Let's try this again, this time without the shitty console warriors. Your behavior in the last thread was embarrassing, and we will be looking through it in-depth.
I love this post.

More on topic, I really hope we do get some more info. I'm not expecting a full on reveal of the box and such, but just ANY info would be nice.

Are we thinking it will keep the same interface as current Xbox One? Will it keep the HDMI In port? I didn't use the Kinect commands much but having that port was nice for switching between TV and games, and the UI they used for their guide was 99999999x better than the asstastic Comcast UI on their cable box.

Wait, this is going to be done through a site? Is this the big reveal of what it is or some tidbits of info?

I'm pretty eager to see what they actually reveal. I'm hoping for a full reveal of the hardware so that E3 can be entirely about games.

Edit: original Xbox BC would be a huge plus

It actually wouldn't be a terrible idea to go through a third party like DF for this. Know your audience.
