Microsoft is preparing at least two new Xbox models for release in the next two years.

However, later this year we’ll see a cheaper, smaller Xbox One, and next year, Microsoft will release a more powerful version.

The 2017 Xbox, which is code-named Scorpio will have a more powerful GPU. According to three people familiar with this model, we hear it will be technically capable of supporting the Oculus Rift and that Microsoft is pursuing a partnership with Oculus.

As for 2016, sources have it that there’s at least a more compact version coming by the year’s end. One source believes it will include a larger 2TB hard drive, double the capacity of the most spacious current model.

We’re expecting Microsoft to announce the more compact machine at E3 next month (Kotaku’s Jason Schreier and Kotaku UK’s Keza MacDonald both independently corroborated this information.)
