E3 2016 - Microsoft confirmed the new Xbox One S console, as well as the next-gen Xbox Scorpio console which is 4K-capable, and is ready for VR gaming, too. There were some new Xbox controllers teased, but now we have a deeper look at them with some high-res shots.

The new Xbox wireless controller that sits with the impressive Xbox One S console.

 

The new Xbox Scorpio should be powered by a 14nm design, while it packs 6 TFlops of performance, ready for 4K/VR gaming - and aimed at a 2017 release. AMD has confirmed that it has its semi-custom SoC in the new Xbox, but we don't know what exactly powers Xbox Scorpio, but I'd say it's a Zen/Polaris-based design.
