Project Scarlett: Microsoft Announces Next Generation of Xbox Gaming Consoles

This is, by default, the biggest press conference of E3 2019, and the Xbox team is expected to take full advantage of that with game reveals, discussion of next-generation consoles, and demos of new technology.

Microsoft has teased its next-gen games console at the E3 Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles.

Admittedly, Project Scarlett's AMD hardware has been co-designed and co-engineered with Microsoft themselves, so it's still possible there's some exclusive Microsoft jiggery-pokery going on here that won't make its way to PC. As rumored, the system, or perhaps Microsoft's wider next-generation console plans, is codenamed "Project Scarlett", and it's coming in Holiday 2020 alongside the long-awaited Halo Infinite. Microsoft said it is "four times" as powerful as the Xbox One S and comes with more memory, higher resolution, and better graphics.

The console will show up to 120 frames per second, or twice the average TV, and include a solid-state drive, Microsoft said, allowing games to load much faster than on its older mechanical hard drives.

We'll update the article as more details are being shared with us. The most recent instalment was Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition, which launched in 2014 and was effectively an update of the 2006 Flight Simulator X.

Xbox's Project xCloud will let you play your games when away from the console (if you've got a beefy enough Internet connection, of course), and they're showing it off at E3 this year.

Also available to pre-order today is the Series 2 of the Xbox Elite Controller.
