Microsoft confirms briefing date for Xbox at E3 2017

It will be interesting to see what Microsoft has in store for E3 2017. While the company usually rules the headlines on the Monday morning of the biggest week in gaming, this year it's putting itself even further ahead of Sony's traditional Monday evening conference (assuming it takes place at that time again), airing on Sunday, June 11th, at 2:00 PM PDT. However, for E3, the two publishers have not yet announced any press conference, while Microsoft is expected to discuss in detail Project Scorpio.

The image likely sends the message that Scorpio will be officially unveiled during the press briefing before the annual gaming convention gets underway.

The company had revenue of $6857.00 million for the quarter, compared to analysts expectations of $6756.07 million. Cornerstone Advisors Inc. raised its position in shares of The Kraft Heinz Company by 129.0% in the third quarter.

Microsoft's E3 briefing will happen on the Sunday before E3 2017.

The Xbox One Beam app will be available to all Xbox One users later this Spring once the Creators Update rolls out to everyone. Without releasing too much about the specifics of Project Scorpio, Microsoft naturally claims it will be very powerful, reportedly five times more powerful than the Xbox One. "And for the fourth consecutive month, PlayStation 4 Slim System 500GB Uncharted 4: A Thief's End Bundle was the top-selling PS4 sku in terms of units sold".

The woman reportedly told police that they were driving through an alley when a vehicle blocked them behind an auto shop. The driver of the auto then drove to Mount Sinai instead of calling an ambulance.

However, PC enthusiasts might not be so impressed considering NVIDIA is reportedly coming out with its GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card in March that boasts of a whopping nine teraflops, as compared to Project Scorpio's six teraflops of graphical power. Scorpio will also be capable of 4K resolution and there is talk about the console featuring VR technology. Beam's promising other ways to interact with streams, which they plan to announce at GDC 2017 in a couple weeks. For now, game streaming is only available for Xbox One Insiders and Windows Insiders (through the Game Bar).
