Microsoft announced that new Xbox consoles are being developed, alongside the future of gaming AI and a streaming service offering console-quality gaming on any device.
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?
Far more powerful for AI, not for graphics and other stuff local processing will always be used for.
@fantomex 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.
Are you 10?
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.
@alb, 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.
How old are you?
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 ;)
@fantomex 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.
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.
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.
Xbox is heavily invested in the gaming business. Good to see...finally.
That’s great to hear... but not to soon. Xbox 1 X is good for a few years. Lol
I like the name Scarlet It will definitely be a fine piece of tech knowing its the same guys who made the X
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.
That will never happen especially in Microsoft’s current situation... I’d be surprised if they do this. Same with Sony
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.
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.
Eh, most games early this gen were cross platform anyways.
I haven't gone in on the Xbox One X yet, mainly because I don't have a 4k TV, so I'm thinking that the Xbox Two will release at the right point in time where I will just buy both the TV and the console at the same time. It will be interesting to see just how powerful the Xbox Two will actually be.
Hopefully with the next game console every game will be made using 60 FPS, over 30 FPS. I personally would prefer a higher Frames per second, over a higher resolution and hopefully the team at Xbox will too.
I thought the Xbox One X was the end of console generations, there wasn't supposed to be another, Aaron Greenberg you executive fanboy lying cheat.
Ugh, when are they going to stop trying? -_-
When are you gonna quit trying lol go play playstation.
I don't have one. :(
Xbox one and xbox one x dead buy xbox one x2 we have bought studios to fool you again
Now if we could only drop the mobile cpu.
That's the plan. I'm stoked to see what Ryzen/Vega 7nm is gonna pull off. Also that GDDR6. I'm guessing PS5 is going to sell for a loss so I'm wondering what Xbox will do. This kind of competition should be very good for gamers and nex-gen...
The benchmark is making great games , can have great hardware and be a crap console.
fail box 2 haha!
Does anyone else find it really weird that they would say they're not only looking into a next gen console, but "deep into architecting" it? The XBox One X hasn't even been out for a full year.
How about aiming for some decent games first, baby steps.
I hope they drop the “One” part it has always been a boneheaded move from MS.
Just reaesed a console and now theyre already talkiing about new consoles. So new console every 2.5 years ? keep your consoles and your games if I wanted to drop $300-400 every 3 years id play on PC.
I already do it on PC and I prefer it that way. It's only an option. Those that don't have the money or who don't care how their games look or perform can always stay with the base hardware and play the same games. Personally I hope Sony will give me frequent options to upgrade. I'm very glad I got the PS4 Pro.
I still think the X will play next-gen with some compromises, maybe not 4k on some games and reduced graphic effects, but it seems as though the X has some power under the hood.
Xbox One XXX confirmed
NO its Xbox One XX
Code name : NoBox2 Essentials : Comes with everything you need straight out of NoBox2 Easily fits anywhere in your household And games magically disappear when you insert the disc into the GAAS drive and become GAAS ready, also the patented GAAS drive will play all Sony exclusives straight out of thin air seamlessly and with no smelly odor, but the GAAS drive can start to smell really bad when inserting a timed console exclusive disc, thanks MS
as long as they are mindlessly overpowering their hardware (without proper content to back it up) and the other non-contender is blatantl underpowering their stuff (content not up to par) i am perfectly fine with sony‘s effort.
These new Xboxes mite be a console it mite have less stuff in because everything is done on there side or should I say more stuff is done on their side.. Microsoft's aim was clear in e3 which is to get streaming on the go and on all devices no matter how poor the device so long as it can stream. That all means that devices will come out and will no doubt be all sorts of different prices I should imagine a wide range of devices will e made available and those on the standard Xbox one will even be fine, in fact those who own a 360 should even be fine..
sony is also "deep" into developing the ps5, but unlike MS they just do it. nothing new here
Didn't X just launch like seven months ago and they're already working on another console. Seems like Microsoft just wants to sell their fan base consoles but not spend anytime making their investment in those consoles worthwhile.
Didnt they release one last year
Doesn't mean squat if your games suck, man. Everybody's got good tech. Heck....our smartphones have good tech. lol. The resources to make high performing, beautiful games.....everyone has it now. So what you NEED to do, is make games that are good.
That sounds amazing.
