Xbox FanFest Details for E3 Include Getting to Experience Project Scorpio First Hand
Microsoft announced that the tickets for the 3 day event, Xbox FanFest: E3 2017, will be going on sale this Wednesday, which will allow 500 fans into their E3 press briefing on June 11th. Included with the Xbox FanFest tickets is the opportunity to play upcoming games on the Project Scorpio console on June 12th. There will only be 400 of these tickets available for purchase on a first come, first served basis that will be sold online throughout several waves during the day beginning at 6AM PT, but to buy them you must be 21 years or older and have an Xbox Live gamertag. The last 100 tickets that remain will be reserved for different giveaways and promotions in the future.
In case you have been living in a cave for the past year, Project Scorpio is the codename for an upgraded version of the Xbox One and they will be unveiling it at this year’s E3, but that didn’t stop them from prematurely releasing the tech specs. Project Scorpio will feature a 6 teraflop GPU, 30% faster CPU, and 12 GB of GDDR5 RAM, hot damn! Xbox FanFest has been going strong for 3 years now and they can’t wait to start it up all over again.
“We wanted gamers everywhere to know how deeply important they were to our past, present and future. Last year, we reached an incredible 13,000 Xbox fans at FanFests around the world. In Mexico, we built a huge Xbox-only event, in Australia we not only took fans drifting to celebrate the launch of Forza Horizon 3 but we took them to Bondi Beach for a little Gears of War 4, and at gamescom, we shut down our booth so FanFest attendees could play all the hottest Xbox exclusives. This year, we’re looking to do even more, with more surprises, to show the world Xbox is ready for the fans in 2017.”
