The Xbox One Scorpio was finally confirmed at E3 today, marking an end to the months of speculation we have all had about upgradeable consoles. And unlike what we know about the PS4 NEO, this isn’t just an iterative upgrade- it’s a beast.

The best part is, it won’t break hardware continuity, either. As a matter of fact, this upgrade does exactly what we said it would months ago, when rumors first began to break of these upgrades systems’ existence- it marks the end of console generations. In his keynote speech, Phil Spencer said as much.

“Project Scorpio will be the next addition to the Xbox One family and it ultimately is the next step in delivering our vision for the future of gaming beyond generations,” Spencer said. “When it ships next year we believe it will be the most powerful console ever built. With 6 TFLOPs of power, this is hardware built specifically to lead the console industry into true 4K gaming and high fidelity VR.

“True 4K visuals without sacrificing quality for VR experiences without sacrificing performance, putting greater graphic fidelity in the hands of the world’s best developers. Xbox One, Xbox One S and Project Scorpio will all be compatible. All Xbox One games and accessories will play on all three. No one gets left behind. Project Scorpio is a serious inflection point for team Xbox and we are announcing Project Scorpio today to gives our developers and partners to take advantage of that ability now in order to realize their visions for the future and deliver even more great games for you. Today marks the beginning of gaming beyond generations. A future full of choice. All future where can all play without boundaries.”

It’s a bold and ambitious vision, and a dramatic change from how console gaming has been so far. We can’t wait to see how it all pans out.
