Microsoft has already done this “game”: anticipate the competition by revealing the characteristics of the new console – code name Project Scarlett – without revealing the design.

Project Scarlett and cloud gaming

Xbox Scarlett will natively support xCloud Projectone of the projects that Microsoft focuses a lot on or the cloud platform which will allow all gamers to play Xbox games wherever, whenever and however they prefer. To explain: Players will have access to their library of Xbox One games and Xbox Games Pass titles wherever they are, with the ability to stream directly from an Xbox One console to a mobile device.

There are still many unclear points about the xCloud project which will surely be clarified in the coming months.

Project Scarlett will be fully backwards compatible

As announced during the conference Xbox Scarlett will be fully backwards compatible with all titles in the Xbox family. This means that all Xbox, Xbox 360 and Xbox One titles will be able to be played on the new console while obviously enjoying graphics enhanced by Scarlett's processing power.

Xbox Scarlett price and release date

There Scarlett release date is not yet certain. The only thing we know is the time window or “holiday 2020” which means that Microsoft's new console will be ready to drive the Redmond giant's Christmas sales. It is therefore still missing a year and a half after its release but Microsoft wanted to push the accelerator by also announcing the first title supported by the new console: Halo Infinite, the “workhorse” franchise

Certainly, during E3 2020 the final version will be presented with the possibility of previewing the console. For us Italians, Milan Games Week 2020 will be a good opportunity to decide if this console really corresponds to the “console of Christmas wishes”.
