Today industry experts are dissecting the latest leak in what appears to be a nonstop flood of confidential information exposing next-gen game consoles. A low-cost alternative from Microsoft could be offered this time around and is likely to release as a digital-only, xCloud-ready console with considerably weaker power than the Xbox Series X. Judging by TFlops alone, gamers are wondering if Xbox Series S is truly a “next-gen” console at all, a sign that the teraflop measurement standard may have outworn its usefulness.
Not to be confused with 2019’s most powerful gaming console Xbox One X, Microsoft has announced the next-generation Xbox which will release during the Holiday Season of 2020 (most likely mid-late November). Formerly known as Project Scarlet, it was revealed at The Game Awards 2019 that Microsoft’s next-gen system is called Xbox Series X. We also now know exactly what the console looks like, some knowledge of its target capabilities / specs, and the nature of the design behind it as well as a hype trailer.
