In an offhand Tweet to an Xbox fan, Phil Spencer who is the head of the Xbox division at Microsoft said Xbox users should wait to pre-order Project Scorpio until they see the games.
@KeenS805 Wait until we show you games on it before you pre-order. And thanks.

Spencer didn’t answer when pre-order would open up, but until now we haven’t had any game announcements or previews. Although, Spencer has expressed pleasure in how the console looked and recently confirmed he had his first gameplay session on the new project. While most of these announcements are coming from Twitter, we’re expecting a lot of news and announcements from E3 where Microsoft may outline what the console will do and feature this coming year.
Phil Spencer talks Phantom Dust
With the games being announced at E3 we are starting to get some leaks and small announcements of what games we will see. The highly anticipated Phantom Dust remake for Xbox One and PC is making it way along, with a release before E3 2017. Phil Spencer confirmed the launch with his tweet stating it should ship before E3. The game is supposed to include Xbox Live support, improved graphics, along with higher resolution gameplay.
The game is supposed to include Xbox Live support, improved graphics, along with higher resolution gameplay. According to Shannon Loftis, Microsoft’s general manager of Microsoft Studios Global Publishing, they will be using original assets from Phantom Dust that were released in 2003. A lot of parts will be updated with modern Xbox live. The game will be a collectible card game within an action RPG.
Phantom Dust should make it’s way to Project Scorpio. The difference between the PC and Xbox One version? Well, like the PC version the Scorpio version could feature 4K resolution.
