Update: The Xbox One X was announced at the Xbox E3 2017 press conference, rendering the report about the name below a false alarm. However, the Xbox One X was confirmed to be $499.
Microsoft’s new console will seemingly be called Xbox Scorpio.
A Best Buy Canada newsletter includes an image (below) that appears to confirm the console name.
Microsoft’s mid-generation Xbox One upgrade has been known by the working title “Project Scorpio” since its first tease last year.
Aside from its final name, the other major point of interest is Scorpio’s price. YouTube’s Geoff Keighley has now suggested that Scorpio will retail at $499:
I can now say with confidence Project Scorpio is $499. Unless something changes today, that is what will be announced.

IGN has reached out to Microsoft for comment on both points.
All will be revealed in just a few hours, when Xbox Scorpio is formally unveiled at the Microsoft E3 press briefing.
