Forza Horizon :woot:

Gears

Crackdown

Recore

Sea of Theives

Relaunched RARE ip?

Steam on Xbox? 

 

Don't think we'll see Scorpio but could always be wrong. Best line of games on any of the consoles for me just give me Horizon but and I'll be happy. And if the talk of it being based in Australia is true....

Talk of Scorpio would only happen if it was coming out sooner than later, but I don't think it is so I don't expect it.  MS can always do it's own Xbox event later this year just for that if they wanted to.  With a slim coming in August, I just don't see yet another system coming a bit after that, it'd kill sales for the current and newer slim model.

Yeah, as we get closer to E3, more and more people are expecting MS NOT to talk about Scorpio, doing so would only hurt future sales of the newer mini XB1.   And if Sony doesn't talk about Neo then MS can hold off as well.

Better looking, although the dots are a strange look.

 

Seems like 4K video is an addition over the original.

Interesting, thought the same thing about the dots. Wonder if white will be the only option.

 

For the sake of what it is, I don't think that I'll be upgrading my One. I have no interest in the 4K video and not really fussed about the slim profile. 

 

Bring on Scorpio

Those dots are ugly as hell :x Why can't we just have one consistent, clean style with these consoles...

Looks nice and I'd get use of the 4K output, but if the Scorpio is real, this would be useless for me

These leaks are disappointing always take away from the show that I'm sure many people worked hard on

News of the beta for Halo Wars 2 came up yesterday or the day before.  Besides, we know about the game and that it's coming, getting a beta for it is just a nice bonus but really a given at this point, lots of games get betas nowadays.

Yeah, the rumor is for scorpio next year, if so then there's no reason for them to talk about it now only to have it come  8-12 months later.

 

This slim probably has updated video out hardware, to decode 4k video etc.   I like the fact they officially support it standing vertical as well.   I wonder if they're going to stick with white as the only color for it?  It would be a easy way to tell it apart at retail for people who don't know, parents.  Kids can just say, get the white one not the black one etc.
