    Microsoft has given us the official unveiling of the Xbox Project Scarlett, their next gen console. It’s set for launch Holiday 2020, and will be “4x” faster than the Xbox One. Will utilize the power of the cloud. Phil Spencer claims that it will have 120hz support and up to 8K resolution. Halo Infinite will be a launch title.

    I'm glad it's Zen 2 based, that's nice. Can't wait to see what Sony's PS5 looks like vs this.

    Unveiled? Yeah hardly. All they did was find 80 different ways to say “no loading times” and give a release window

    Concept of the console is cool, but not sold on cloud gaming.

    I think the Xbox one failed. Don't know if the scarlet will be better. I don't like the cloud service and hope it's a feature and not a must have.

    What does I have from the super fastest console in the world but no real mega games on it...

    Cloud gaming has no future, if people are smart. We would lose way too much by keeping things outside our grasp, like mods. Plus it would kill collections and any preservation effort, not worth it at all.

    Keywords of the word:
    Immersion (What they fuck they mean with it is uncertain), THE FUCKING CLOUD MAN.

    So, the new xbox is going to lack an optical drive, it's going to be always online cuz it takes a bunch of power from servers?
    and it's quite amusing that they finally found out about SSDs and SSD caching lol

    Why are they so fucking afraid to give out real hard specs?

    Cloud so its forcing its failure groove.exe again which caused so many fuck ups with xbox one x.

    Notice nothing about the actual console just bull shit 4k resolutions, so i wonder how muc improvement it will have over current gen.

    I bet the SSD Project Scarlett uses downloads RAM. That's why Microsoft makes it seem so revolutionary. :rofl2:

    They said they wanted to create a console that's "Only for Gaming", that could mean that gamers don't use their consoles as bluray player to watch movies.
    But I could be wrong.

    Would be supirsed to see it without a disc drive. Lots of places have shit internet or decent speeds, but capped. Would be a brave move to go disc less.

    but now that 4k blurays are a thing not having a disc drive is dumb imo, also without discdrive there is no backwards compat unless for store bought digital games i guess becuase you cant just stick an xbox disc to do the drm anymore lol.
