Microsoft is Launching Project Scarlett Console

PS5 is the next-generation console from Sony and everyone is expecting it to release alongside the Xbox Scarlett in Fall of 2020 but that does not mean that Sony can not reveal it ahead of time. That new console only allows users to download digital game. Spencer is always careful to say Project xCloud is not the end-all game streaming service.

Dubbed Project xCloud, this technology is meant to complement Microsoft's console hardware and give gamers the ability to utilize Xbox functionality through their other devices, perhaps with as little lag as possible.

With the planned 2019 launch of Project Xcloud, Microsoft isn't ignoring the game industry's current mania for streaming gaming. Instead, Microsoft is working on a super powerful Xbox One successor, dubbed Project Scarlett, which it teased at E3.

In a series of exclusive interviews with GameSpot, Microsoft's VP of gaming, Phil Spencer, shared details about the company's next console, Project Scarlett.

"I think the area that we really want to focus on next generation is frame rate and playability of the games", Spencer said. Spencer also talks about the importance of "playability" with a focus on frame-rate and resolution, saying the aim is to get games consistently running at 4K 60fps. It's 20 years old at this point, so it took two decades for us to get to the point where shows like Game of Thrones and House of Cards are some of the biggest shows in the planet and mainly watched via streaming.

So, is Microsoft working on several new Xbox consoles? How fast do [games] load?

Speaking to GameSpot, Spencer said that people are gaming on more devices now than ever before and they won't simply disappear.

Of course, the Xbox One featured a solid collection of backward compatible games, including several classics from both the 360 and the original Xbox.

"We want to respect the games that you've bought from us", he continues. For more inside looks at Spencer and his thoughts on the past, present, and future of Xbox, check out all our coverage in the stories linked below.

Only one game has been confirmed launch title for the device so far, a new instalment in the popular Halo series, named Halo Infinite.
