Last year at Microsoft’s E3, they announced Project Scorpio. Now this year, we’ll be able to see what Project Scorpio is going to look like and when will we be able to get our hands on the newest and coolest console that is coming out this year. Xbox already said that Scorpio games will be able to play on Xbox One games and Xbox One games will play on Scorpio so some of the games that I had listed for my list of predictions for Xbox One E3 article will most likely be happening for Scorpio as well.
1) VR Support/VR system like Playstation VR
Since Scorpio is going to have native 4k graphics and have the capabilities to run VR, it would be great if Scorpio will get some kind of VR system like how Playstation has their own VR system. Hopefully Microsoft will get on the VR train and have games and a VR system to go along with their newest and powerful gaming console yet. Plus it would be a shame if they didn’t have anything for Scorpio while PS4 has their own VR system.
2) Exclusive Games for Project Scorpio
Even though Scorpio will be able to play Xbox One games, I feel that Scorpio will have its own exclusive games that won’t be shared with Xbox One and/or the Xbox Anywhere. It might not happen considering PS4 Pro doesn’t have any games that is just for the PS4 Pro, just exclusive games for all PS4 consoles. But with the Scorpio’s rumored power, it would be great to see some games which are fully committed to using as much of the consoles power as possible.
3) ALL prior first party games will be Scorpio patched
Now this one is one of the more insane predictions as it’s very unlikely to happen but it’s expected that a few older Xbox One titles will get the Scorpio patch treatment by the time it releases. However we’re going to take it one step further and say Xbox will patch every single first party AAA game they released since launch.
4) Halo 6 ISN’T Announced, but a FPS Halo is incoming with insane Scorpio features
It might be time for a FPS Halo game since Halo 5 was released a couple of years ago so we might be looking at another Halo game in the very near future. However we could be waiting for Halo 6 for a little longer as we are predicting either a prequel to an older entry or an entire side story on something else rather than another main series Halo game.
Also we’re thinking this is going to be best looking FPS game to date, with prior Halo games looking amazing in cutscenes already but with the power of the Scorpio we’re going to be taken to a place Halo has never gone before in terms of visuals.
5) Project Scorpio is priced the same as PS4 Pro or cheaper
I am looking forward to seeing what Microsoft’s official name for Project Scorpio is. Though Scorpio is a cool sounding, I find Xbox Scorpio doesn’t really roll off the tongue like Xbox One or Project Scorpio. We should be able to have an official release date for Scorpio as well. I am hoping that Microsoft doesn’t release it too late in the year, like November or December just for the sake if they are looking to get those huge sales numbers. I feel like they will release it towards the end of the year and it will have great sales numbers for it.
Hopefully, they won’t sell out so quickly like the Switch and people will have a hard time trying to get a hold of one before Microsoft gets out a steady stream of Scorpios out to the public. Finally and lastly, the price of Scorpio. Just by the specs of the console and what it can do so far, it wouldn’t surprise me if Scorpio is at least $100-150 more than new Xbox One and Xbox One S consoles. It would be a great surprise if Microsoft made Xbox One and Xbox One S like $199 and Scorpio $350 which is why it’s our top insane prediction.
That is my list of insane predictions for Microsoft’s Xbox Scorpio at this year’s E3. Check out my list of insane predictions for Microsoft’s Xbox One at the 2017 E3 conference.
