Head of Xbox Phil Spencer had previously noted that Microsoft planned to release Project Scorpio - or an equivalent 4K Xbox upgrade - sometime a year ago. Nintendo were punished for the Wii U's weak launch line-up and rewarded with the superior Switch and Zelda: Breath Of The Wild.

It's been known for decades now that Sony and Nintendo were once working together in a feat to combine a CD-Rom drive for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. But it really has only one advantage: not having to buy more than one console to play all games.

With still several months away from its holiday release, gamers and tech enthusiasts were treated to a glimpse of Xbox's Project Scorpio.

So what is Microsoft hoping to achieve, then, with Project Scorpio? While the Scorpio is a still an Xbox One, it's heftier, faster, more powerful under the hood, says the Digital Trend. This means that GTA 6 will be tailored for Project Scorpio, Xbox One and PS4 rather than the Sony PS5. Now the hunt continues to see if there were any video game prototypes that was in the works for this unreleased console.

An original prototype of Sony's PlayStation, dating back to the company's short-lived partnership with Nintendo, has now been completely restored to life by popular console modder Ben Heckendorn.

One interesting tidbit to surface over the past few days has been that of the console's dev kit, and it's mighty impressive for a console. This machine would have represented Sony's entry into the game hardware market if only Nintendo did not back out on the deal. This is a big ask from a technical perspective, as this was partly possible logistically with the Nintendo release owing to its cartridge-based nature.

The screen can also be adjusted to show the console's read and write speeds, something the every day gamer probably doesn't care for, but certainly fits into the Scorpio's self-proclaimed appeal to the "core" gamer.

But if Sony could somehow produce a PlayStation 5 that was portable as well as being a living-room video games / multimedia machine, it would undoubtedly be a massive selling point.
