Clues could point to the 4K console’s release date
The first glyph is the message “6>4” at the bottom-left of an image with a Ferris wheel — seemingly calling out Sony’s PS4 Pro, comparing Project Scorpio’s supposed 6 teraflops of computing power to the Pro’s 4.
While a fine enough jab at its competitor’s expense, the second clue uncovered could be far more telling.
In another teaser, a shot of a crowded concert venue can be seen with what looks like the code “X10S101317” written on a platform.
Given the assumption that “X10S” refers to Project Scorpio, the remaining digits could be interpreted as a date — 10/13/17, or October 13 of this year.
Could this be the release date of Microsoft new machine? We’re speculating, but mid-October is within Project Scorpio’s “end of 2017” release window, and the date is on a Friday (a typical day for console releases) so it’s not too far-fetched.
As for when we’ll get some actual concrete details on the 4K-capable Xbox rig, Microsoft’s E3 briefing is scheduled for this Sunday, June 11, at 2pm PST/5pm EST/12am GMT via the company’s newly renamed Mixer streaming service.
In the meantime, YouTube user The Red Dragon has compiled a collection of Microsoft’s Scorpio teasers, should any amateur sleuths want to comb for more clues. Enjoy!
