On the Eve of E3, Xbox One S is Now on Sale

How do you think can game developers reach new performance heights with the console's allotted 9 GB of memory? However, there are always plenty of surprise announcements as well. We will likely see a new Forza Motorsport title, and 343 Industries must be working on something Halo related.

The Sony PlayStation E3 showcase kicks off late on Monday, June 12, not going live until around 2am, BST. Microsoft's flagship console will be retailing around $399 (Rs.26,691 approx.) and will introduce support for virtual reality (VR) headsets.

What do you hope to see Xbox announce at E3 2017? Not to mention, you can buy games digitally on the Xbox game store and play them on your PC with Xbox Play Anywhere.

"We'll keep tuning Scorpio to empower creators to share the best versions of their games", said Mike Ybarra, Microsoft's Xbox and Windows gaming corporate VP, on Twitter Thursday, June 8. The company announced Thursday that it has chose to give game developers 9GB RAM and keep only 3GB for the system. Western games are well and good, and they go a long way towards appealing to western audiences- but Japanese games can, too.

The question at E3 will be whether Nintendo can follow up that initial sales success and unveil new video-games to tempt non-Nintendo fans.

Another one of the clips hosts a jab at Sony's new PS4 Pro with a simple "6 4", as in Project Scorpio's 6TFLOPs of compute power is stronger than Sony's PS4 Pro's 4.2 TFLOPs.

Big games we'd like to know more about include God of War, Death Stranding from Hideo Kojima, The Last of Us Part 2, Uncharted 4 DLC and the long-awaited Final Fantasy 7 Remake.

Switch launched at the start of March and some 2.74 million were sold by the end of that month, according to Nintendo. They are sure to have a few surprise announcements around the console up their sleeves. Super Mario Odyssey will also make its way to the show floor for a brief demo video on the same.

Nintendo's previous games console, the Wii U, faded quickly and its 3DS handheld was also a disappointment. If what they reveal at E3 proves that notion is possible, than "Scorpio" might very well be worth your money, as you might never have to save for another system again.
