As we approach E3 2016, leaks and rumors begin to increase their frequency. Today, an interesting rumor is quickly spreading all over the Internet: Microsoft could announce, at least, two new Xbox systems at E3 2016 and one more at E3 2017 (or Spring 2017).
This info comes from a podcast on Thurrott.com, where Brad Sams provides a lot of information. So, let’s recap:
- Microsoft will reveal a new Xbox system in 2017 (currently in the works), VR enabled and based on a new architecture. Codename: Scorpio.
- Additionally, the company would announce the Xbox Nano at E3 2016, which will be a streaming device similar to Chromecast. Pricing point may be around $100.
- The Xbox Slim (Mini) would be also announced on this E3. It would be, basically, a smaller version of the current Xbox One, but with 4K output (we don’t have further hardware details).
- New Xbox controller with minor revision.
- Xbox Interface coming to the PC version of Xbox Live.
- Xbox and PC will be very important at E3, as more stuff is coming to PC.
As always, take this with tons of salt, pre-E3 dates are quite tricky, so let’s wait a little bit more.
