xCloud

It will be possible to stream all games available for the Xbox One via Microsoft’s Project xCloud. This means that a game library of 3500 games will become available, and adjustments will also be made automatically to the streaming service.

Project Scarlett

The green-colored bullet is finally through the church: the new generation of consoles is just around the corner! “A console should be designed and built and optimized for one thing: gaming” are the words with which Xbox head Phil Spencer heralds the announcement of Project Scarlett. The console naturally becomes the most powerful Xbox to date, and that underlines the first details about its performance.

8K support, frame rates up to 120 fps, ray tracing and an SSD (also used as virtual RAM) that should deliver ’40 times performance increases’ compared to previous generations. The focus, therefore, seems to be on minimizing loading screens. Now we need to collect a TV that can handle these impressive specs, and then we can play Halo like never before. We still have time for that, because Project Scarlett appears – probably under a different name – in time for the holidays of 2020.
