Rumor: Microsoft Developing Two Next-Gen Xbox Consoles
Jul 25, 2018, 10:15
According to Sams, Microsoft is building two distinct devices for its next generation of game consoles. Both systems are codenamed Scarlett - the name refers to a family of products - but we're focused on the streaming system today.
Several titles are arriving on the scene as part of this month's Deals With Gold offerings.
Now this does not stop Microsoft from making a dedicated streaming Scarlett box, but Microsoft could get a lot more value from their near 700 million Windows 10 users if playing the best games would be as simple as clicking an icon. Also included is the Spotlight sale, which includes games like Screencheat (67% off) and Western Press (75% off).
Rumors will be all fans can go on until Microsoft itself is ready to reveal more information on the Scarlet consoles and what exactly they will have in store for gamers.
Microsoft's ambitions for the next generation of Xbox lies in not one, but two consoles, Thurrott reports, and one of them is all about game streaming. But this time, Microsoft has a path to bring it to market. It is said to have a limited amount of local compute for tasks such as controller input, image processing, and collision detection.
Microsoft has been investing in AI and cloud resources related to gaming technologies.
The outlet reports to have new information from anonymous sources regarding Microsoft's rumored cloud game streaming service, supposedly codenamed Xbox "Scarlett Cloud" - specifically that Microsoft will release a second console dedicated exclusively to accessing this service.
That means the streaming console will be larger and more expensive than something like OnLive, but still cheaper than a traditional console.
Some other work is being done on the networking side as well, ensuring that Scarlett Cloud is physically closer to Microsoft's Azure network of servers to reduce latency in multiplayer.
The website noted that all Scarlett games will run on all Scarlett devices, meaning there will not be any game that runs on the traditional Scarlett console that does not run on the streaming box, and vice-versa. Of course, Microsoft would love you to buy their hardware but the company's end-goal is that you can access "Xbox" from any device, anywhere and Scarlett Cloud is looking to deliver on this idea. According to internal sources at Microsoft, both consoles will be capable of running the same games without issue.
