Project Scorpio Gets A Microsoft Store Product Page

But you can't preorder yet.

762 Comments

It's a big year for Xbox. The company's new console, Project Scorpio, goes on sale this holiday, promising to be the most powerful system ever made.

No Caption Provided

Now, a product page for the mega-powerful console has appeared on the Microsoft Store (via TrustedReviews). Unsurprisingly, it does not show a release date or price. It does list of some bullet points, including:

  • The most powerful console ever with 6 teraflops of graphical processing power
  • The first and only console to enable true 4K gaming and high-fidelity virtual reality
  • Compatible with all Xbox One games and accessories

You can provide your email to be notified of more details on Project Scorpio.

Earlier this month, Xbox boss Phil Spencer said Microsoft may announce more details about it before E3 and then during the show itself.

One of the biggest unanswered questions is about price. Spencer says the system will carry a "premium" price tag, more than the $300 Xbox One S, but that's all we know for now.

"I'm not trying to scare anybody on the price," he said. "We're going to come out on a price that we think is fair for the product that we build and the customers will tell us as they always do. I call it premium because I don't want people to get confused that somehow Scorpio is the thing that is going to take over the Xbox line."

Spencer added that he fully expects that Xbox One S, with its lower relative price point, will sell far better than Project Scorpio.

"The majority of the consoles that we're going to sell are the Xbox One S and I'm very proud of that," he said.

Keep checking back with GameSpot for more details on Project Scorpio.

It'll probably end up being another "PS3" fiasco when it launches: overpriced and little reason to upgrade

@urbanman2004: The PS3 wasn't a fiasco, and quite obviously had countless reasons to buy it, and this (supposedly) won't be a new system so it's a different thing regardless. I'm sure it'll be a good deal regardless of what it costs, but no one's forcing you to buy it.

I really do hope that the Xbox Scorpio is an actual true 4K console. Not the fake checkerboarded/upscaled 4K that the PS4 "Pro" is. Not that I'm going to buy a Scorpio or a Pro, but one console making the jump will mean better perks for PC gaming, which has been capable of true 4K gaming for a few years now.

Especially since all console exclusives will be on PC now via Xbox Play Anywhere and PS Now, there is no reason to ever buy a console ever again.

@pax_augusta: <<<Especially since all console exclusives will be on PC now via Xbox Play Anywhere and PS Now, there is no reason to ever buy a console ever again>>>

Both of those are different forms of glorified rental services, and all exclusives are not on either. Far fr om it.

The base consoles are powerful. Pro is a ridiculously good deal, and this will be too. Of course not all games will run at 4K, but that doesn't change the fact that they'll look great.

@wolfpup7: You obviously don't know what Xbox Play Anywhere is. It allows you to buy a game digitally on the X1 or the Windows Store. Once you do you can play it on either platform. It's one game for the price of two, and your LIVE account ties them both together. It's not just Microsoft exclusives either, as 3rd parties have been jumping on board.

PS Now is more of a "rental service," but it offers every single Sony exclusive available on the PS3. Eventually, the same will happen with the PS4. No, neither base console or their "4K" systems are powerful. They are cheap, stripped PCs that have too many limitations and hold back gaming.

If games won't run at native 4K, stop lying and telling the world your damn $400 box runs games at 4K. A respectable gpu that can run games at 4K with 30 fps will cost you $600, alone. No console is ever going to be able to afford that hardware at a cheap price for console gamers any time soon.

@pax_augusta: <<<You obviously don't know what Xbox Play Anywhere is.>>>

I do.

<<<It allows you to buy a game digitally>>>

It's a rental given you don't own anything. Regardless you, not all games are available that way. Plus many/most people are going to want a disc on Xbox and a better store on Windows.

<<<PS Now is more of a "rental service," but it offers every single Sony exclusive available on the PS3>>>

No it doesn't. It's not even close. Plus in addition to being a rental, it relies on streaming.

<<<Eventually, the same will happen with the PS4>>>

It hasn't happened on PS3, and it's doubtful it'll happen with PS3 either.

<<<No, neither base console or their "4K" systems are powerful.>>>

Of course they are.

<<<If games won't run at native 4K, stop lying and telling the world your damn $400 box runs games at 4K>>>

No one is lying. I've heard neither company claim their systems run everything at 4K. I don't even think Sony made any claims about that at all, and Microsoft's been pretty explicit too that they (wisely) are leaving it up to the developer.

@wolfpup7: Xbox Play Anywhere is not a damn rental service. Do some research. I use it. You aren't renting anything. You buy the game and it's yours forever. Every Microsoft exclusive since the service started has Play Anywhere, and even 3rd parties are starting to do it. Check out Resident Evil 7 and CoD Infinite Warfare.

Every major Sony exclusive is on PS Now. I would know as I also have that service. Anything people care about is there. Sony isn't dumb enough not to put their best exclusive games on the service. They need an incentive for people to buy it. Streaming isn't an issue if you aren't on terrible internet.

You must be a console gamer. Both consoles, including the PS4 "Pro" are terrible hardware compared to any decent gaming PC. The Pro can barely run games via checkerboarded upscaling at 30 fps. Final Fantasy 15 was infamous for terrible frame rate on the Pro.

Sony has been claiming since last year the "Pro" is a "4K console." Open your damn eyes. Are you so blinded by console fanboyism that you just eat this crap up? It's a scam and you are having your money stolen for a console that will never be capable of 4K gaming.

Of course it is. You're not buying anything.

<<<You buy the game and it's yours forever>>>

You're not buying anything, and it's only yours so long as Microsoft gives you access to it.

<<<Every Microsoft exclusive since the service started has Play Anywhere>>>

Well it's not all games, and it's an inferior way to get games for either platform.

<<<Every major Sony exclusive is on PS Now>>>

It's FAR from comprehensive.

<<<Anything people care about is there.>>>

That's just false.

<<<You must be a console gamer.>>>

Yes. I play on everything.

<<<Both consoles, including the PS4 "Pro" are terrible hardware compared to any decent gaming PC.>>>

No, they aren't. Even if they were, they're still excellent hardware.

<<<Sony has been claiming since last year the "Pro" is a "4K console." Open your damn eyes. Are you so blinded by console fanboyism that you just eat this crap up? It's a scam and you are having your money stolen for a console that will never be capable of 4K gaming.>>>

It has 4K games right now, so your claim is false. Regardless, it's got literally 2x the GPU of the base model, and the base model is ALSO a really nice piece of hardware.

Too bad PS4 won't have exclusives for much longer...

I hoped for a more exciting console war after Scorpio's launch.

@TashunkoSapa: The next gen consoles will come out in 2019, and focus will stay on consoles that people actually own, so yeah I guess it won't be too exciting after Scorpio launches...

Of course PS4 will have exclusives, Sony has actual first/second party devs so that's kinda how it works

Has Project Scorpio been confirmed to include a 4K Blu-ray player? I have a feeling that it may take the Sony route and not include one in order to keep the cost low and more affordable.

I can't be hyped for a console that doesn't have too many interesting games. I'll gladly trade a Scorpio announcement for some new AAA IPs Microsoft.

I can't play with hardware alone...

The closer the unveil,the dirtier are the comments.

I may be wrong but i guess that the Earth will not stop spinning after the Scorpio launches,noone will steal your pc or your playstation,noone will take your games away,noone will point a gun at your head forcing you to buy a Scorpio.

Bit thats just me saying silly things...

So now that PS4 exclusives are coming to PC by PSNOW does that means the PS4 has no games or that only applies to Xbox?

@Kougeru: Bullshit. Scorpio's GPU has the equivalent teraflop performance of a GTX 1070, which cheapest I'm seeing on Amazon is in the 350-400 range alone, and that's just the graphics card. Scorpio is likely to retail for 500 max, and your getting a full system with full 4k performance, and an UHD disc player. If someone wants to play on PC they can do that now. This is for Xbox players that want an updated device as the X1 is very badly out of date and underpowered by today's standards. Scorpio is like 5x+ the machine an X1 is. It's huge leap for those that want it, especially if you own a 4k TV.

So tired of "The most powerful console ever!" line to describe the console. Is this not the case with any console release from Sony or Microsoft, the two companies that CARE about hardware performance.

So I guess the Playstation Pro currently owns that crown eh, and will for another 8 months er so. THEN Scorpio will come out and be on top for a year or two, THEN Sony will come out with "the most powerful console ever!".

What a stupid line for customers to bite on to.

@titang1: Well it makes sense because the X1 has been the less powerful console than the PS4 since they launched. And now Xbox will have the superior hardware again, which is pretty significant, because even going back to the 360/PS3 comparison, they had very similar specs but some feel 1st/2nd party PS3 games looked better due to the talents of those development teams, some having more experience. So the last time MS had a console significantly more powerful than Sony was the Xbox over the PS2, a very long time ago. This is a big deal. Scorpio will be on top for more than a year or 2. The Pro JUST came out a few weeks ago, Sony's not anywhere near ready to get a PS5 out there, that's at least 3-4+ years away. The top selling games are 3rd party multiplats for the most part, on a yearly basis, by clearly conveying they are the go-to console for the best visuals, framerate, performance, they are trying to attract people who care about those 3rd party titles to play them on the Scorpio.

@titang1: Context that wasn't provided...

Just chock this one up as marketing hype. If you want to sell a product you have to get customers excited about it. Give them something they can latch on to emotionally. It's not new to this generation, it's basically how console marketing has worked for years. All the way back to the Sega consoles from Gen 4, the power of the device has been used as a marketing tool by whoever wears the crown.

@saturatedbutter: With the constant reminder that it has 6 teraflops, it wouldn't surprise me if they named the console "Console with 6 Teraflops".

Teraflop is the most overused word in gaming today.
