Mahler: Project Scorpio is a “full blown next-gen machine”
Ori and the Blind Forest creator Thomas Mahler called Microsoft’s Project Scorpio console a “full-blown next-gen machine” when he answered a question on NeoGAF on the system.
“Scorpio isn’t just a half-assed upgrade (which the PS4 Pro kinda is…), but a full blown next-gen machine that’s just backwards compatible to your current library.
“From this point on, similar to PCs, you’ll not lose your library when you play a next-gen system.”

Prey release date announced
According to Bethesda, Prey will launch worldwide on May 5 for PS4, Xbox One, and Windows.
The announcement was made in a new trailer for the game that gives us our best look yet at main character Morgan Yu and the threat he’s fighting on board space station Taos I.
The publisher also announced the Cosmonaut Shotgun Pack, a bonus pack that’ll be available for those that pre-order Prey. It offers a Margrave shotgun (a Yu family heirloom, according to Bethesda), as well as three Neuromods, two medkits, a shotgun ammo Fabrication Plan, and a “unique upgrade to help players preserve their limited resources.”
