It makes sense for the market leader not to support cross play, it ensures that people buy the console that most of their friends have, which is most likely PS4.

Sure I'd love cross-ply, but I can see why Sony won't do it, MS would likely do the same if they were leader.
100% this. You don't give the opposition an inch.

Yes?

Now the speculation about hardware specs can begin.

I look forward to the Digital Foundry stuff as they seem pretty level headed.
If the One X is 6TF I don't think 12TF for next gen is out of the question with the top end being maybe 15TF.

This past week, I was tipped off that the next generation Xbox was codenamed Scarlett and in an effort to track down if this information was accurate, I was able to view content that highlighted several unannounced Microsoft products that are coming in the next two years.

Microsoft is planning for the next Xbox console release to arrive in 2020. But what is more interesting, is that Microsoft describes ‘Scarlett’ as a family of devices; meaning we may see multiple pieces of hardware released that year.

That date may seem relatively close considering that the Xbox One X launched last year but Microsoft is aggressively moving ahead with hardware in the console space to shake up the industry. But what we don’t know is if this is a brand new set of devices or simply a more ‘powerful’ Xbox One that is again, fully backward compatible with all the content available today.

Considering how much effort Microsoft has put into backward compatibility, I would expect the Scarlett devices to support current gen games but offer more advanced features and align possibly with Microsoft’s upcoming game-streaming services.

As with any leak this far out, timing and plans can change but I was able to verify the information I viewed as being authentic and fully believe that the company is on-track to release the new console in two years.

Could it possibly be a normal more powerful xbox and a handheld kind of like the switch but that can display games from the new xbox?

The handheld would still be its own device with its own games like the Switch.

I've kind of felt Microsoft with all its talk of backward compatibility and the action it has put into it has been setting up for the new consoles - even if they have a new name - will not abandon all this stuff from the One.
In fact, didn't they freeze new releases of Windows and say they're just focused on improving 10 continuously now? Same kind of thing for the Xbox, except they need to release the hardware upgrades.

Y'know, at least until we have something more substantive.

Kinda makes getting an Xbone X a bit redundant at this stage, really.

At the price they currently are, yup. Really surprised not to see a hefty price cut announced.

I'm still tempted to get an X, I'd get a couple of years enjoyment out of it and I could sell it on before the next gen console arrives.

Particularly when the 'proper' next gen Xbox is going to come in at near, if not the exact, same price as the X. I can't see it exceeding £450.

As I stated in another thread. If the Xbox 2 comes out in November 2020 ill have had my X1X (and the most powerful console) for 3 years. I don't think it's that bad tbh.

Depends how much you value those graphics. You'd have to go back to pre-Saturn to find a console that had a shelf life of just 3 years at £450.

I'll just do what I did with the Pro, get it from Argos m8 and sell the X to cover atleast half of the cost.

I value them a lot. I love my X, honestly it's a massive jump up over the base X1. I play enhanced games only these days (bar Rocket League which is getting enhanced) and the results are fantastic. I've currently 52 enhanced games on my X installed and even super sampled down to 1080p they all look stunning, but then you factor in that they have better framerates too, then the back compat games that are enhanced, plus the OG BC games that have similar treatment. The jump up in some games is at times ridiculous.

You can’t love it all that much if you are going to throw it out of your home at 3 years old just because it is not longer pretty enough for you.

So the Xbox family, that mean next gen games might work on the X or that it will just be fully BC?
