We'll see the next Xbox One and the games will will save the platform at E3 2017.

News by Mike Williams, .

We know what powers Xbox Project Scorpio now, but we still lack answers to pertinent questions. How much will it cost? When is it coming out? What will we play on it? Having the most powerful system in the world doesn't matter if there aren't great games.

Chips look cool, but they're not games!

Xbox Scorpio: Everything we Know - Release Date, Price, Final Spec, 4K

Microsoft’s next console is slated to be the most powerful thing on the market. Here’s everything we know on Project Scorpio’s release date, price, spec, and games.

In an announcement today, Xbox boss Phil Spencer promised the full Project Scorpio reveal and a "diverse lineup" of game for the Xbox platform.

"I'm proud of the progress made with Project Scorpio and what it will mean for the creators who fuel the passion of gamers around the world. On behalf of everyone at Team Xbox, thank you for your continued passion and support. We're excited to unveil Project Scorpio and the amazing game experiences it powers at E3 this June," said Spencer.

"We know you care most about great games, whether they be exclusive, multiplatform, independent or AAA. We are proud of the diverse lineup of games coming this year that will only be playable on Xbox One and will play better on Project Scorpio. We designed Project Scorpio to be the best console to play the blockbuster multiplatform games from our publishing partners, made it easy for recently released titles to upgrade to true 4K and for beloved, backward compatible titles to play better than ever before."

Of course, Spencer has promised the moon before. One, the announcements need to actually be up to snuff. Second, Microsoft needs to not cancel or delay most of the games before they launch. Announcing games that never release might be worse than not announcing anything at all.
