There is something a lot more crucial than Microsoft S logo being used for the Xbox Project Scorpio. It is Microsoft’s believe in its upcoming console to ward off competition from rival Sony in the cutthroat video game industry. Understandably, there is immense hype around the Xbox Project Scorpio, since its branding team is marketing it as the world’s most powerful console. The majority of trade experts are terming the Scorpio Development Kit the most hyped gaming console ever to hit the market. It must be noted that Microsoft’s publicly vocal statements about console’s design and the virtual dolphins have also escalated the vibe. In light of such developments hovering around the Xbox Project Scorpio, it is safe to presume that the secretive Microsoft S logo will be in use for the upcoming gaming console.

Moreover, the developers’ feedback taken earlier resulted in a development kit that offers a lightning fast GPU, 1TB SSD, 24GB of Ram, and 1TB HDD. Moreover, it provides side vents to enable mounting multiple development kits, and the option to swap between Project Scorpio, Xbox One S, and Xbox One development modes. However, all unanimously agreed that the little OLED display on the front panel of the unit displaying all the relevant data would not be there in the console.

Nonetheless, an unassuming “S” may not be the actual name of the Xbox Project Scorpio since Xbox One S already happened. The Xbox One S was a restyled model of the original Xbox One that is slenderer and glossier, along with HDR output and 4K support. Perhaps the Microsoft S logo is intended to be used with the Xbox One S, which after the release of Xbox Project Scorpio will become the budgeted and less powerful version of the Xbox Project Scorpio.
