  • Upload custom Gamerpics to your Xbox profile; choose how you want to express yourself.
  • Mixer Co-streaming is now on console, for everyone: With just a few clicks, you and up to three of your friends can stream together in a single broadcast. Plus, never miss your friends’ streams inside your Club and Arena Tournaments.
  • Sign-in to your Xbox One with just one press of the Xbox button on your controller. Now you can make your controller truly your own.
  • New user-generated tournaments for Killer Instinct on Xbox One means it’s never been easier to go to battle with your friends.

Team Xbox is hard at work preparing to launch Project Scorpio later this year, but just last month we started shipping a different kind of console – the Project Scorpio Xbox Development Kit. We announced Project Scorpio early so we could get it into the hands of game creators and we can’t wait to see what kind of immersive, true 4K gaming experiences we see starting at E3.

The Project Scorpio Xbox Development Kit is a first-of-its-kind design, and I sat down with our own Kevin Gammill from the Xbox Engineering team to talk more about what the power and functionality of the kit, why developers are loving it and what it will mean for your games. Check out the video above.

Earlier this year, we announced Xbox Game Pass, a new digital gaming subscription service that gives you unlimited access to over 100 Xbox One and Backward Compatible Xbox 360 games for $9.99 USD per month. To ensure Xbox Game Pass provides the best experience possible for gamers, we rolled the service out first to the Xbox Insider Program, with a limited number of titles to test the features. Thanks to the positive feedback we received from the community, we’re thrilled to launch Xbox Game Pass broadly to the Xbox community in 31 markets and share the entire catalog of over 100 great games.

E3 2017 is almost upon us, and Microsoft’s is going to be extra special.

The headline act for E3, at least Microsoft hopes, will be Project Scorpio — the company’s beastly 6 TF 4K video game console. Strangely, though, we practically know everything there is to know about it already.

Microsoft showed off Scorpio’s internals a few weeks ago, touting native 4K gaming (and, with plenty of overhead for other visual enhancements). Scorpio has plenty of other exciting features, but many will be (rightly) wondering what the heck they’re going to be playing on it, and just how much it’s going to cost.

Here’s what we expect from Microsoft’s E3 2017 conference.

 

 

 

Microsoft’s E3 2017 conference will be broadcast live on Mixer.com on Sunday, June 11th, at 2 PM PDT.

Project Scorpio: name, price, design, and launch date

As noted, Microsoft has already demonstrated the meat of Scorpio, but huge questions remain. Doubtless, Microsoft is going to give us pricing information, a hard launch date, and the console’s real name during their E3 presentation.
