Microsoft has officially unveiled its next-generation console, dubbed Project Scarlett, which will replace the Xbox One family in late 2020. The simplest way of understanding this offering is via the comparison table below, though in brief it consists of; unlimited access to 100 quality PC ad console titles, with new games added all the time and Xbox Games Studios releases added as they go live - plus member discounts on purchases.
There still isn't much that's clear about Project Scarlett, Microsoft's follow-up to the Xbox One, which was revealed for the first time at the E3 conference in Los Angeles on 9 June. The game will be available on September 10, launching on Xbox Game Pass. These games will be coming to the BC program over the next several days, and the game Too Human will be available for free as a parting gift.
Games could only be played in 60fps at 1440p, which for a US$1,000 graphics card was unacceptable.
PowerA's take on the Xbox One controller is an attractive pickup for budget-conscious gamers that nails all the basics.
Microsoft has finally confirmed the existence of its next-generation home console, known as Project Scarlett.
"In under two decades, the number of players in the world has more than tripled; now more than two billion of us play games".
Microsoft's biggest competitor for Apple Arcade is Project xCloud, and it's still a long way in the future. Keep in mind that, once your pre-paid subscription ends, this will then roll into an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription, so you may want to set a reminder to cancel the pricier subscription at that point. Even if Scarlett launches with a plethora of games built both for Xbox One and the new machine, it will eventually see its own exclusives, as developers tire of trying to cram ever more expansive, and expensive, games into the dating hardware of the Xbox One.
As you might have already guessed, Project Scarlett is the codename the company has given to its next, high-end Xbox console.
With that, Microsoft is poised to compete not just with Sony - whose upcoming PS5 console is getting fast SSD storage, 8K support, and 3D audio - but also the raft of game streaming services scheduled to launch over the next couple of years. The list of games for Xbox Game Pass for PC include: Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Gears 5, Forza Horizon 4, Sea of Thieves, and Football Manager 2019, among others.
