Microsoft Unveils Next Xbox, Features 8K Support and 120FPS

Project Scarlett: Microsoft Announces Next Generation of Xbox Gaming Consoles

Halo Infinite will release globally with the Project Scarlett Xbox console.

This also hints games will have two releases when Scarlett releases in Holiday 2020: an Xbox One version, and a Scarlett enhanced SKU. We do know that it's supposed to be up to four times more powerful than Xbox One X, whatever that means.

It really makes sense for Microsoft to choose the Scarlett hardware as the future of Project xCloud, especially since Scarlett will be backward compatible will Xbox games from older consoles.

Xbox head Phil Spencer pulled back the curtain on "Project Scarlett", the creation of a successor to the Xbox One that will give game makers "the power they need to bring their creative visions to life". Right now, Xbox Game Pass for PC includes big games like Wolfenstein II, Metro Exodus, Forza Horizon 4, ARK: Survival Evolved, Hello Neighbour, Football Manager 19 and many more.

- allow games to be played at up to 120 frames per second.

"Where you play is entirely your choice, you decide". At this year's E3, Microsoft confirmed the service is now available on PC.

Check out more announcements from Microsoft's Xbox E3 briefing here, including news about its upcoming controller, and its acquisition of Double Fine Studios.

According to Microsoft insider Brad Sams, Scarlett is the name of Microsoft's overall next-generation console strategy.

Adapting to the new trends will be critical for contenders in the massive video game industry, which previous year generated more than $135 billion globally, and $43.4 billion in the United States.

If you're anxious about any prepaid months of Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass, then don't be, because any prepaid time will be applied towards the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate plan, up to a maximum of 36 months.

Though not a formal reveal - which will probably come at E3 2020 - Microsoft did speak a lot about the next Xbox console and what we can expect from it. Although, the individual price of games within the MCC has been announced, there has yet to be any confirmation on how much the collection will cost as a complete bundle.
