Yes, Xbox Project Scarlett will have a disc drive

We know that Halo: Infinite is arriving next year with Xbox One "Scarlett."

It was just last year that Xbox revealed that they acquired developers such as State of Decay creator Undead Labs and Ninja Theory, which showed off its new multiplayer game Bleeding Edge at this year's E3.

And it's also what game streaming services are promising in the next few cycles.

What we do know is that the latest instalment in the Halo franchise, Halo Infinite, will launch alongside the new console, presumably to showcase all that newfound power. The game will be available on Xbox Game Pass, for PCs as well as the Xbox One.

Rival Sony Corp has also disclosed plans of its next-generation PlayStation 5 console, with similar specifications including an AMD chip. 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. Project Scarlett will be able to output at up to 8K, but the console is built for 4K gaming at up to 120fps. "Where you play is now entirely your choice". The most powerful next-gen console is a cool label but it likely won't decide the next big competition.

Code named Project Scarlett, the device will reduce latency when loading games. Neither Microsoft nor Sony are expected to say much more about their consoles any time soon, if at all for the rest of the year. It allowed for close to real-world light reproduction in games.

Games on smartphones have accounted for a lot of that growth.

The company announced "Project xCloud" last October saying it was testing a new game streaming service created to work across PCs, consoles and mobile devices.

All three versions of Game Pass are available today, and if you subscribe today, the first month will be only £1. There are new releases from Xbox Game Studios, including the ones from developers like Obsidian and inXile, that are set to be premiered on Xbox Game Pass for PC. The only issue is that you can only redeem up to 36 months of Game Pass Ultimate by conversion. Spencer says that even though more and more people are buying their games digitally, he ultimately wants to give people a choice when it comes to how they buy video games.

A highlight of the show was an appearance by actor Keanu Reeves, who was greeted with a standing ovation and shouts of adoration by a packed audience in the Microsoft Theater downtown.
