New Xbox may bring 4K, Oculus support

Consoles
[MUSIC] Rumors about the new Xbox are in overdrive, as we get closer to the A3 Expo. According to anonymous sources, Microsoft is releasing a smaller and cheaper Xbox later this year, with a two terabyte hard drive. But wait theres more. A new Xbox console, code name Scorpio, is supposedly coming in 2017. Expect a more powerful GPU 4k capability and the possibility of Occulus Rift support. That's not a big shock considering the Occulus headset ships with an X box one controller, and reports say that Microsoft is further pursuing a partnership with the rift maker. It also provides more of an indication that the worlds of x box and Windows are colliding. This is all a part of a project supposedly called Project Helix that will bring Xbox and PC closer together. And we've already seen new titles like Halo Wars 2 announced for both platforms, not to mention the recent simultaneous day one release of Quantum Break. The rumors also come on top of speculation that the console release cycle is getting a shakeup. Instead of new hardware every four or five years, Microsoft may relax smaller incremental updates more frequently. Sony has overconcerned the PS4 would be getting a similar treatment with the step up near consulting late last month. Xbox Chase still spent some thing to add fuel to that fire earlier this year by saying that it it likes to see Console evolve more like PC. We'll be waiting to hear what Scorpio has in store for us when Microsoft's E3 press conference kicks off on the 13th of June. [MUSIC]
