Great to hear. Please be reasonably priced though.

I don't get this. I thought the Cloud was supposed to make the current Xbox far more powerful?

Why would we need a new Xbox, unless Microsoft lied to us?

Fantomex13d ago

Far more powerful for AI, not for graphics and other stuff local processing will always be used for.

BiggerBoss13d ago


When are we going to see the cloud power though?

I'm still waiting for the OG Xbox One to become 3x more powerful than the PS4 when connected to the internet. That's what Microsoft told us would happen.

Fantomex13d ago

Whenever Crackdown 3 comes out. Actually SoT uses cloud power so it's already in action.

As far as what MS said, don't expect everything any company says to be true. The cloud is heavily dependent on a robust Internet connection. Not everyone with an Internet connection can effectively use demanding data services like even YouTube at 1080p with 60 frames. The cloud for a game console will suffer the same problems.

Also it's MS. They aren't known for the most honest of marketing. The Facebook ads for MS' IT products and services are no better.

Yes, I am 10 years old.

Still doesn't explain why Microsoft lied to us, though.

Illumiroom, DX12, Cloud Power, its lie after lie after lie.

Lmao who cares get over it you child.

Just stop. Are you saying we don't need new hardware because the cloud should be it? Wtf are you on? I want some ;)

If they continue the Xbox one ecosystem/generationless business model the Xbox one og won't be able to keep up with the newer consoles based off of CPU alone

"Whenever Crackdown 3 comes out. "

Don't hold your breath. This vaunted, over touted feature was reduced to a trailer with no mention of the online tech. And if you aren't getting the drift the game is being downplayed and dropped into the market with little to no fanfare. Can't read the tea leaves? The tech doesn't work like they planned. The talked up this title as revolutionizing gaming and its been pushed back, delayed, and now barely on the radar.

Cloud got scrapped just like that halo lens so you can forget about that.

alb189913d ago

biggerboss this thing about the cloud never gets old. We will see you on every news from MS crying about the lies of MS....that's sad bro......move on!!

Why do you keep repeating this?

Illumiroom was never coming. They said it was way too expensive. It was also a proof of concept.

DX12 is already here and does give big performance improvements to those
Games that use it.

Cloud is good for AI and physics not for local graphics.

It's nice to know all the new Xbox's will also be the most powerful of their respective generations. Great news for us guys that like the best hardware in a console format.

Muzikguy13d ago (Edited 13d ago )

I'm sure one more lie won't hurt

I thought m$ said xbx1x is THE MOST POWERFUL CONSOLE EVER CREATED. If that is true, why is there a need for another system? It's really confusing. Pls make up your mind m$.

Did you just step out of a time machine from 2013?.

So glad I didn't waste my money on the current system then since maybe in a few years I'll see something that will actually make me go out and buy one.

slate9113d ago

Xbox is heavily invested in the gaming business. Good to see...finally.

HexxedAvenger13d ago

That’s great to hear... but not to soon. Xbox 1 X is good for a few years. Lol

Reaprr13d ago

I like the name Scarlet
It will definitely be a fine piece of tech
knowing its the same guys who made the X

Fantomex13d ago

Yeah hardware wise Xbox is on the right track. As long as these guys are designing new platforms for Xbox, the specs will not be an issue like the OG Xbox One. I'd really like to see them willing to sell the next Xbox at a small loss though. Make this new console $400 at launch, then make a return + profit with the games and services. Can be done.

1-pwnsause-113d ago

That will never happen especially in Microsoft’s current situation... I’d be surprised if they do this. Same with Sony

mcstorm13d ago

Tbh I don't think it will matter on the price as the one s will be dropped from production and the X will replace the s and the y will replace the X as the higher prices console but all s and X games will work on y and all y games will work on x and I do wonder if Microsoft will offer a internet console to link to the cloud gaming they brought up yesterday and maybe even make an app for the s so if they don't want to upgrade to the y the s still works through the cloud app.

mkis00713d ago

Well we know it will be the more expensive console if they wont settle for 2nd most powerful. Unless they launch after ps5, but I dont see them doing that and missing out on 3rd party releases fir a year.

The 10th Rider13d ago

Eh, most games early this gen were cross platform anyways.
