Xbox Game Pass Ultimate detailed with subscriptions for PC and console

Xbox announces first details on the next-generation of Xbox - Project Scarlett

Microsoft’s New Console, Project Scarlett, Arrives Holiday 2020 with Halo Infinite!

The company refreshes gaming consoles every few years. I highly doubt this will be the case, but I guess we'll definitely know for sure in just under 24 hours when AMD's Next Horizon Gaming event kicks off at 3pm PT / 11pm BST. For the time being, the hardware is codenamed "Scarlett" and has release date window of Holiday 2020.

We won't have too long to wait either.

Microsoft also revealed some tiny details Sunday about its next-generation Xbox console, which now has the code name "Project Scarlett". As with the PlayStation 5, its custom system on chip is based on the Zen 2 CPU microarchitecture and the Navi GPU architecture.

Really the Worst X-Men Flick?: Watch The Ultimate Dark Phoenix Debate
Now Dark Phoenix is playing in theaters and it debuted to the worst rating of the X-Men movies ever. She stated that she had "zero, nothing to do with Dark Phoenix , or Apocalypse , or New Mutants ".

Towards that end, Scarlett uses AMD internal parts with a solid-state drive, the latter of which can be used as virtual RAM that's then pumped back into the game process.

The goals for Scarlett included reducing load times and loading screens, lowering the amount of time that a player is "sitting there in a fake elevator", to quote one of the developers. Microsoft didn't provide details on pricing or on how xCloud will work, but xCloud will be available for public preview starting this October. It will also have more storage.

It seems like a safe bet that some portion of the evening will be spent pitching the benefits of Game Pass, as well, especially considering the launch of the new PC Game Pass offerings. If you were already a regular Xbox Live Gold subscriber you are basically getting an ever-growing library of games for only $1, as noted by SwiftOnSecurity.
