Microsoft planning both next-gen Xbox cheaper and less powerful

Xbox Project Scarlett

In 2020, both Microsoft and Sony will debut new versions of their Xbox and PlayStation respectively. Although it may not seem too surprising that the head of Xbox is already playing Project Scarlett in your home, the next-gen games console is not expected to hit store shelves until the 2020 holiday season. The console is available at $299 (Rs 20,800 approx.).

It looks like we'll only know more about this digital-only version of Project Scarlett if Microsoft officially announces it. In other words.it will be quite like the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition. For those of you who did not have to follow that, the question of whether a second-generation ghost Xbox was being processed was swirling around Scarlett's revelation for several months. But it's easiest to think of Anaconda as a successor to the Xbox One X and Lockhart as a successor to the Xbox One S, with a similar performance disparity.

Lockhart will help Microsoft to champion its various subscription services like xCloud streaming and Xbox Game Pass.

It's not the first time that Microsoft has offered a more budget-focused console to gamers, as the Xbox 360 kicked off with a basic model that still needed a memory card back in the old day.

- A solid-state drive, which will help reduce load times. He also said Microsoft won't be making the same mistakes again, and "we will not be out of position on power or price".

Microsoft is reportedly targeting 4K resolution at 60 frames per second on Anaconda devices and 1440p resolution at 60 frames per second on Lockhart devices, though this does not mean that every single game will meet those standards. Previous Xbox generations' dev kits have exclusively connected to private systems, including Xbox 360's "Partnernet" (which we used to test pre-release software in the 360's heyday).

Xbox Scarlett development is far enough that Phil Spencer has a unit in his home.
