E3 2017: Microsoft Press Conference Recap

Posted on Jun 14 2017 - 11:24am by Gaf Hussain

Microsoft’s conference was actually decent this year, but they’ve still not convinced me on the new super-powered Xbox. If it was part of a new generation of consoles, I’d say the price-point was correct, but at the moment it doesn’t feel like much of a leap especially with the games showcase. In any case, here are all the announcements from Microsoft’s E3 conference this year:

Project Scorpio officially announced as Xbox One X, launching November 7, 2017 for $499/£499. Most powerful console on the market, and smaller than the Xbox One S.
