Barring an absolutely shocking surprise, Microsoft's live press conference tonight will play host to E3 2017's only hardware reveal. Project Scorpio has been on everyone's lips since it was first teased exactly one year ago, with Microsoft promising to deliver true 4K gaming to consoles.

We're expecting an official name for Project Scorpio, a price, what the thing even looks like and, most importantly, the suite of games coming its way. While Microsoft is keen to suggest this isn't an entirely new console generation, the Scorpio is going to need quality first-party titles in order to shift units. Currently, Microsoft has close to zero known titles in the pipeline. We expect to hear about lots more tonight. The best bit is that each and every one of these titles should also be making their way to PC thanks to Xbox Play Anywhere.

Microsoft's E3 2017 press conference will be streamed live below from:

I'm getting the Xbox One X. Really impressed with it. Also, I love the play anywhere aspect. Xbox 360 backward compatibilty was expected, but Xbox Original games were such a surprise to me! A Very impressive 4K Gaming machine for $499 you could never find that on PC for the price.

was it clarified if this was with the disk media or that you have to re download the games that are backwards compatible

They didn't really expand much on the concept on the spot, but it wouldn't be too surprising if you could just pop in the CD and play from there. For X360 backward as long as you have the physical disc or a digital copy you could play it with no issues. Another thing that I found interesting, is that they claimed that every backward-compatible games will not only visually improve, but also performance will be better for every game. I can't wait for Sony's conference and see what they got :D

I wish, the whole trilogy (remastered) would be even better.
