The main concept behind Microsoft’s Project Scorpio is to stay put and up with the advancing technologies for example 4K gaming, VR support and HDR content.

Apart from all these details, Microsoft currently proclaimed that both the consoles, Xbox One and Project Scorpio, are going to support amalgamated reality headset to come in 2018. Also, yes, the console is going to hold up all Mixed Reality headsets from a range of manufacturers.
Talking about VR, one essential thing that one must know is that the console is not going to come with a separate VR headset of its own and you are to buy one by yourself.
Right now, there is no assurance with respect to prices but are forecasted to be higher than Xbox One and Xbox One S.
