Xbox Project Scorpio Logo is Outed

It appears that the logo for Microsoft’s next Xbox console has potentially been outed. And while the console will most certainly not use its current “Project Scorpio” branding, it looks like at least the “S” will make its way to the final name.

Which is to say, the logo is an “S.” Literally.

News of the logo leak comes courtesy of NeoGAF—though I saw it in The Verge—and is based on a trademark filing.

So we’ll need to speculate.

Microsoft has made two Xbox One consoles so far, the original tank-like version and the sleeker new Xbox One S. Developer Kits for Xbox Project Scorpio look almost exactly like the Xbox One S, which I like. And of course it will be branded and sold as a new kind of Xbox One as well. So they can’t use Xbox One S. But maybe the Scorpio name comes along. Or something else that starts with “S.”

Or maybe this was just an idea that Microsoft isn’t moving forward on. I guess we’ll see.

    You know what, they could call it Xbox One Scorpio.

    I'm all for Xbox Scorpio One S (Home US Launch Edition) because it's not a Microsoft product until the name reaches paragraph length.

    So it will be an Xbox One S.. wait a minute...

    SX Box... (pronounced Sex Box)?


    I thought maybe they would call it 10Box2 (Windows10 Box 2, but pronounced Ten-Box-Two, like Timbuktu)?

    OK I have had too much coffee today.

    I wonder if that's supposed to be a cross between an S and an X?

    I still like using the old "Elite" brand. I think they probably need to continue to use the Xbox One name for licensing reasons, e.g. the right to sell old games. So... how about "Xbox One Elite".

    "Xbox One Ultimate".


    "....with Ultimate Extras".

    I am holding out for this instead of getting an "S" now for the 4K. I can wait abother 5-6 months. Looking forward to the news on this console.

    Don't care what it's called, and I doubt Sony do either. PS4 is passing 60m sales now. How much must MS have spent engineering this console barely half way through the life of the Xbox One just to try and get one-up on Sony. Really? It all seems a little childish. MS had their nose put out of joint and have been paying the price ever since, but that was all Microsoft's fault - nobody elses. I'm surprised Nadella gave the go-ahead for this, as it's widely know he has no love for Xbox - he's a cloud/enterprise guy.

      There is room in this world for both coke and pepsi.

      Are you a full-time troll or do you just do this on the side?


      If you're doing it on the side I'd hate to be your full time employer. With the amount of time you spend watching this site and trolling with negative Microsoft comments, there's no way they're getting any value out of you. And neither are we...

      It's not meant to get one up on Sony. Otherwise the PS4 Pro would have been made for Sony to get one up on Microsoft. And at least Microsoft are doing 4k properly, not some half-arsed "dynamic 4k" console that only benefits a few games which don't even reach native 4k.

    They should just call it Windows 10 for Xbox One Professional.

    Maybe it will just be called the Xbox S or Xbox Scorpio.
