On April 1st, Windows Central journalist Jez Corden reported that Microsoft would soon reveal its upcoming mid-cycle iteration for Xbox One – ‘Project Scorpio’, a statement that would quickly become a reality today with the announcement that Eurogamer.net’s Digital Foundry would have the exclusive reveal this coming Thursday.
Following that correct prediction, journalist Corden has once again been at it on social media today, answering questions from Xbox fans regarding what could be potentially be shown or revealed on Thursday.
Regarding a potential price announcement during the reveal, Corden believes that no such announcement will be made, but rather, on a different date, possibly E3 in June.
Corden would, however, go on to reveal that Xbox fans are in for a treat when ‘Project Scorpio’ receives its long-awaited reveal this Thursday, stating that “huge, positive surprises” are in store, and that fans will be “elated by the findings“.
Lastly, Corden dropped a subtle hint that a possible partnership with Oculus for use of its VR headsets was on the cards with his latest offering.
With Project Scorpio confirmed by Microsoft to include virtual reality, a partnership with Oculus for the use of Oculus Rift headsets seems an almost forgone conclusion at this point.
Whatever happens between now and then, we’re all in for a treat Thursday, April 6th when Microsoft finally lets the cat out of the bag. Be sure to check out the reveal on Thursday at 2 p.m BST.
