    Back when Microsoft first announced Project Scorpio at E3, the only image it showed was that of the system’s motherboard. Last week when the console’s specs were revealed, we were shown more pictures of that same motherboard. Now, we’ve gotten an idea of what the final system may look like thanks to recently released pictures of the Project Scorpio dev kit.

    These images come to us via Gamasutra, who visited Microsoft in Redmond and spoke to the head of Xbox, Phil Spencer. As you can see, the dev kit bears a strong resemblance to the original Xbox One, albeit with some key differences.

    The front of the unit has an OLED screen with a navigation button and five programmable buttons. This screen shows developers information like frames per second. Very useful indeed, though it is unlikely that this will be in the consumer version of the system.

    This dev kit has the same amount of ports that the retail Scorpio will. Its vents are located on the sides and not the top. This way, devs can stack Scorpios on top of each other (like the image below) without any overheating issues. The dev kit also sports an extra network interface card. This transmits data while playing multiplayer games.

    As Microsoft previously stated, Project Scorpio will be able to run Xbox One games. The dev kit can actually switch between Xbox One, Xbox One S, and Scorpio settings. This allows developers to optimize titles for each Xbox console. Xbox head Phil Spencer told Gamasutra that Microsoft has “millions of customers that have made a commitment to the Xbox One generation.” He doesn’t want anyone who owns an Xbox One to feel left out or disappointed. This also means that, at the moment, there will be no Scorpio exclusive games.

    “When you ship an Xbox One game two years from now, even if you don’t look at Scorpio as something that you want to take advantage of, fine. That’s up to you. We’re not mandating that people go and do Scorpio-specific work.” Spencer said that most AAA developers already have 4K assets for the PC version of their games. Using these assets for the Scorpio version of a title shouldn’t be much of a problem.

    Please keep in mind that the retail version of Project Scorpio will not look resemble the dev kit exactly. However, it does give us an indication of what the upcoming machine will look like. Hopefully, we will get to see what the consumer version of Scorpio looks like during this year’s E3.
