Project Scarlett is the name of Xbox next console,out in 2020


Microsoft’s next console is named Project Scarlett. Phil Spencer, vice president of gaming at Microsoft stated that “The console should be optimized for one thing and one thing only . . . gaming.” Developed by the same team that created the Xbox One X. The video presented showed employees talking about “variable refresh rates, real-time ray tracing, 8K resolution, frame rates up to 120 frames per second and SSD that’s 40 times better over the current generation. It will be embedded with a AMD’s Zen 2 and Navi tech. based chip. To be honest despite having so familiarity with technology I have very little idea of what most of this tech does.

To be honest I have long stopped caring about the specs of video game consoles. I always get all the main three consoles (Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony) and they no longer seem to be released in the same year. What I do find interesting is “cloud gaming.” There are rumors that Microsoft’s xCloud service ” will stream games to PCs, consoles, and mobile devices,” and possibly appear on the Nintendo Switch. Finally, if you care about the Halo series it will be a launch title for the Scarlett. According to the developers at 343 Industries, Halo Infinite “is aiming to have more heroism and mystery,” . . . “ living world [is] at your fingertips.” I’ve long stopped playing Halo game so I don’t care, but I think it’s still a popular series and would make a good launch title.
