Microsoft has announced it will showcase Project Scorpio at E3 this June.

According to a press release, Project Scorpio will be the first truly “4K” system, meaning the resolution is a step up from high definition,

Microsoft will also be making the system fully accessible to independent game developers. With the goal of making Project Scorpio “the world’s most powerful console development platform,” designers are including the Xbox One Development Kit and a wide range of software and hardware. Designing games with this system will make it easier to make the games compatible with both the console and Windows 10 for PC. Designers tested how quickly software could be transferred from the kit to PC and they added a button on the actual system to make it quick and easy to test a game.
