Phil Spencer isn’t so much concerned with “winning E3” as he is with being able to show Scorpio when it’s ready.

Xbox boss Phil Spencer said that he’s aware that fans want to see Project Scorpio before E3 2017 in June, but he’s still undecided.

The executive was asked on Twitter earlier if the company has anything to share about the upcoming console, and the conversation shifted to trying to get a date from him as to when more will be revealed.

“Happiness with the product trumps all, confidence in brand is important,” Spencer told one follower. “PR wins aren’t really my focus,” he added.

As for developers getting acquainted with the console, Spencer said that the platform holder’s first-party teams are “getting engines up and tuned, great progress across studios.”

At this point, none of Microsoft first-party studios have confirmed working on games that will take advantage of the console’s power. Crackdown 3 likely will, though, seeing as it’s set to release this year. As for the console itself, nothing is known beyond the few details revealed at E3 last year.
