Xbox teases its 8K-capable next-gen “Project Scarlett” console

“A console should be designed and built and optimized for one thing: gaming,” Xbox head Phil Spencer said onstage at the company’s E3 presser.

Now, Microsoft is working to create its most powerful Xbox yet as it gears up for the next generation of console hardware and some of the details they’re giving sound wild.

The company teased some huge factoids in a teaser. The device will have 8K capability, will be able to handle frame rates up to 120fps and will utilize SSD to keep load times low. “This generation is going to be a bigger leap than any generation before,” a video describing the new hardware detailed.

The next-generation console will be arriving in the holiday season of 2020.

We’ve already heard quite a bit about PlayStation’s plan for their next generation console, mainly details regarding the system’s transition to SSD storage and its reliance on a third-generation AMD Ryzen CPU.
