Xbox Project Scorpio / Xbox One X: Microsoft is gonna launch some big titles parallel with the release of Project Scorpio for Xbox. This update got his back when Xbox head Phil Spencer said in a comment that “it was crucial to have first party game ready for launch.” Pre-orders are open since September.
Update: It has become the first console to partner up with high-end audio brands like Bang & Olufsen, Gibson, and LG to provide support for wireless hardware. It seems to be timed deliberately given the impending release of Xbox One X. The company’s 4K console will be compatible with high quality wireless surround sound speakers for a better experience.

Spencer, then, took it to Twitter and posted, “I want to give our games more time on stage at E3 [Electronic Entertainment Expo]. I, sometimes, feel like we rush telling the story of our games at E3.” On 23 March.
Since Spenser has chosen not to say a word about ProjectScorpio, a game retailer game stop stated that Scorpio is a very powerful system that is specially made for 4k gaming. Now, this could give some comfort to all the techies who were waiting for any update about Scorpio.
The chief operating officer Tony Bartel said, in their last investor cell that, “Unfortunately, we can’t talk about a lot other than what’s known. We see it as a very gaming centric, very, very powerful unit and so, we do believe that there will be some great games that are made for this.”
