[embedded content] It’s the second day of press conferences and this time, it’s Microsoft’s turn.

The Microsoft E3 2017 press conference will commence at 2 p.m. PDT/5 p.m. EDT today, and will bring with it the official unveiling of Microsoft’s PlayStation Pro killer, Project Scorpio. Needless to say, this is a must-watch presser even for non-Xbox fans just to see what Microsoft has in store for 2017 and beyond (oh, and BioWare’s Anthem will be there!). Will it be the console to finally topple the PS4’s stranglehold this gen? Let’s tune in to find out! After Microsoft’s press conference is done, Bethesda will then take the stage later at 9 p.m. PDT/12 mn EDT. Overlapping with Bethesda’s press conference will be Devolver Digital’s, which will happen at 10 p.m. PDT/1 a.m. EDT.

Report: Project Scorpio Price and Final Name Leaked

There’s only a few hours left until the start of Microsoft’s E3 press conference but it looks like the final name and price of Microsoft’s highly-anticipated new console have already been leaked beforehand. Microsoft’s new console has held the moniker of “Project Scorpio” since it was first announced last year and the company might have decided to stick with that for its final name as an image included in a Best Buy Canada newsletter reveals the branding “Xbox Scorpio,” which looks to be the final name of the new console. Additionally, producer Geoff Keighley has recently gone on Twitter to claim that the price of Scorpio will be $499. I can now say with confidence Project Scorpio is $499. Unless something changes today, that is what will be announced. — Geoff Keighley (@geoffkeighley) June 11, 2017 A $499 price tag sounds to be a bit too steep for a mid-generation console, given that Sony’s PS4 Pro was launched with a price tag of only $399. We’ll just have to wait if the leaked final name and price are accurate when Microsoft officially unveils Scorpio in a few hours.

Project Scorpio E3 Teasers May Be Poking Fun at Sony, Teasing Release Date

With its E3 press conference only a few days away, Microsoft has released a couple of teasers for the event and the expected launch of its Project Scorpio console. And while the teasers, entitled “Feel True Power,” are incredibly short, they may actually contain a couple of hidden messages. Twitter User XboxIngame has pointed out that in one of the teasers during the scene with the Ferris wheel (seen above), a “6>4” can be spotted written on one of the tents. This is presumably poking fun at the comparison between the Scorpio’s supposed 6 TFLOPS of power and the PS4 Pro’s 4.12 TFLOPS. Another hidden message, pointed out by Windows Central, in a scene showing a cheering crowd, a barely visible message reading “X10S101-317” can be seen. While the string could potentially mean anything, the “X10S” could be referring to the Scorpio console while the remaining numbers “101317” could be hinting at a possible release date of October 13, 2017. It must be noted though that these are all just speculation and the supposed hidden messages could very well mean nothing. We’ll just have to wait and see what Microsoft has up their sleeve at their conference on READ FULL…

Middle-Earth: Shadow of War Gets an Epic New Story Trailer

It’s unfortunate that Warner Bros. has moved Middle-Earth: Shadow of War‘s release from August to October. Each trailer released for the upcoming game looks better than the last and makes the wait much more excruciating. This latest video focuses on the story players will get to experience. We’ve been told that this new original tale will be very epic and the trailer seems to corroborate that. Instead of pursuing Sauron’s subordinates, protagonist Talion has his sights set on the Dark Lord himself. Along with Celebrimbor who has bonded with him thanks to the New Ring, Talion will gather armies to take down Mordor’s ruler and bring peace to all of Middle-Earth. [embedded content] “Set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, Middle-earth: Shadow of War is an open-world action RPG that continues the original narrative of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor,” reads the press release. “Players will be engrossed in a richer, more personal and expansive world full of epic heroes and villains, iconic locations, original enemy types, more personalities and a new cast of characters with untold stories.” The game is largely set within Mordor, but it will also let READ FULL STORY AT GEEK!

Destiny 2 is Everything the First Game Should Have Been

During an event today in Los Angeles, Bungie gave us all a first look at gameplay from Destiny 2. The hour-long presentation focused on the game’s multiplayer modes, and most importantly, its brand-new single player campaign. Destiny 2 will have players new and old start from scratch. As they progress through the game, they will become more powerful and regain what was lost. Loss is one of the central focuses of the campaign. Players will not only lose their powers but their city. This is all due to the new baddie, Commander Ghaul, and his Red Legion. The game will have new PVP modes, strikes, and a new raid. It will also have three weapon slots instead of two. This will allow players a higher degree of customization with their load outs. Each of the three available player types will have new classes. These include the Dawnblade for Warlocks, a Captain America-esque shield for Titans, and the Arcslider electric staff for Hunters. And there will, of course, be new guns to shoot aliens in the face with. [embedded content] Users will face off against the aforementioned aliens on Earth, IO, Titan, and Nessus.
