Asked for a general status update regarding Project Scorpio, Spencer said he is "absolutely" happy with what he's seeing so far. He added, "great that our first-party teams are getting engines up and tuned, great progress across studios, platform, and [hardware]."

Microsoft has time and again referred to Project Scorpio as the "most powerful console ever made," so a premium price point is expected. Officially, pricing has not been announced. The console goes on sale in holiday 2017, though a specific release date has not been announced.

No Caption Provided

Interestingly, Spencer said in June 2016 that Microsoft could have released a new, more powerful Xbox One that year. However, the company decided against it because it wanted to wait until it could deliver "true" 4K gaming with six teraflops of performance.

In other Scorpio news, Halo boss Frank O'Connor recently said that, while he's unsure of Project Scorpio's specifics specs, they are "beefier" than what he expected.
