LOS ANGELES — There have been a few E3 press conferences in the past day and a half, but only one has announced a new gaming console that’s powerful enough to game at 4K, 60 frames per second. That honor goes to Microsoft and its rousing E3 conference on Monday, which ended with the unveiling of the long-rumored Project Scorpio.
Between that “coming in 2017” hardware reveal, the formal introduction of the “slim” Xbox One S, and a mammoth slate of new games, Microsoft was coming out in a pretty big way – so Ars’ Sam Machkovech and Mark Walton got together to chat about the company’s hardware and software revelations in two separate videos. We still have impressions about the PlayStation press conference coming up later, so it remains to be seen if Microsoft is declared the ultimate “winner” today, but at least they weren’t baloney.
We’ll have more impressions this week with as many of the games revealed as possible, so stay tuned to Ars for thoughts on things like Forza Horizon 3, Inside, Final Fantasy XVand much more.
