Is the next generation of consoles in jeopardy?
Rumors about new consoles are now circulating for all three major video game consoles. Microsoft was the last to enter the rumor mill with the Xbox Scorpio last week, but might be the first to unveil it. Microsoft is said to unveil the new more powerful Xbox Scorpio with Oculus Rift support at the E3 2016 on June 13.

Nintendo made clear that they will not talk about the Nintendo NX at the E3 2016. A new report out of the Asian supply chain even says that Nintendo has delayed the NX to late 2017. Nintendo said in April to release the Nintendo NX in March of 2017. According to sources of Digitimes, Nintendo just figured out that they forgot to add VR support to the Nintendo NX and delayed mass production to early 2017, putting a release into fall.
Digitimes has a mixed track record, but they dedicate an unusually long report to that rumor.
The rumored Sony PlayStation Neo with improved performance has game developers scratch their heads. New PlayStation games would need to supprot both the new and the old PS4. "I believe that’s a valid concern and what a lot of people are fearing. If the rumors are true about mandatory support for the “old PS4”, then it’s a bit puzzling what the purpose of NEO really is from a developer perspective,” said Kai Tuovinen from FrozenByte games in an interview with GamingBolt.
