Microsoft Corp confirmed the release of their fastest Xbox console yet during its E3 2019 Conference, a coverage hub for the biggest games and announcements.
The new generation Xbox console, code named Project Scarlett, will be released in time for Christmas 2020.
Thanks to the powerful AMD processor of 120 frames per second, Project Scarlett will be four times more powerful than the current Xbox One X.
The Scarlett is no ordinary video game streaming box. Not only will it include a digital storage system but a physical disc drive as well. The vision is to play whatever game on whatever device. It is designed to minimize (or completely eliminate) load times and get you into games as quickly as possible.
Microsoft also got a jump on Sony Corp., which skipped this year’s show for the first time, presumably to make announcements about its own next generation console at a later date. Sony’s PlayStation 4 has been the top seller among the current generation of gaming devices.
Xbox One, the current generation, was released in 2013. It initially had a premium price tag and the device was focused on the entertainment experience rather than gaming, turning off gamer customers. After a price cut, sale recovered but never came close to its rival product, Sony’s Playstation 4.
