Now Playing: Project Scorpio Reactions at E3 2016

These comments those from last week, when Spencer said he was "really happy" with what the Scorpio engineering and development team has been able to achieve.

Scorpio is due to launch this holiday, but it remains to be seen when Microsoft will start to show it off. Earlier this month, Spencer said he is unsure if Microsoft will show off Project Scorpio before E3 in June.

Microsoft has time and again referred to Scorpio as the "most powerful console ever made," and claimed that the performance advantage over the PS4 Pro will be noticeable.
