Now Playing: GS News Update: Xbox's Project Scorpio Dev Kit Shown Off In New Video

Above it are buttons which can be programmed to adjust what is shown on the screen. Both features will no doubt be very useful for developers. In terms of the overall form factor, the Project Scorpio dev kit looks very similar to the Xbox One S, as noted when images of it were previously released.

The first pictures of the Scorpio development kit were made public in early April, around the same time the specs for what will be Microsoft's newest addition to the Xbox One family were detailed.

Microsoft says Scorpio is the most powerful console ever made and that it will be more powerful than the PlayStation 4 Pro. It is designed to run games at native 4K and will still support Xbox One games, controllers, and accessories.

The new console is due to launch this holiday, but Microsoft hasn't said when it will properly unveil the final unit and give it an official name. Xbox boss Phil Spencer has said he is unsure if Microsoft will show off Project Scorpio before E3 in June.
