There’s been a lot of movement around the Xbox platform these past few weeks, starting with the refreshed Xbox Insider Program in January and the new Xbox Pass in February. Now, as we get closer to June (E3 2017) and eventually the annoucements of its release date, more details and rumors about the “the most powerful console ever built” are coming out.
Citing a trusted source, Windows Central mentions that the new console will have, besides all the feature that we already know about, HEVC and VP9 codecs for 4K Netflix streaming and for 4K 60 FPS video Game DVR. The current Xbox One supports 720p 30fps streaming, so that’s a big step forward.
The same article from Windows Central also mentions that Scorpio will come with an internal power supply, just as the Xbox One S, leaving aside that external power brick that will soon become unnecessary. Also, some other websites around the net are mentioning that the console will also take advantage of supersampling technology and will come bundled with a 4K Blue-ray disk reader.
Phil Spencer also teased during a recent interview that Microsoft might plan a dedicated event before E3 entirely dedicated to Scorpio.
As we don’t know much yet, we can just sit back and wait for new news to come.
