Microsoft's Newest Xbox Will Be a Swiss Army Knife of Disruption
With all the hype at E3 in Los Angeles around new video games, sometimes bigger narratives get a little lost - including Microsoft's biggest Xbox announcement since its inception. Code named "Scarlett" the new Xbox has been confirmed - or rather not denied - by gaming boss Phil Spencer, saying the entire arm is heads down on its success.
But, details are scarce as the new console is still a few years out, but there is a lot of very reasonable assumptions we can start making. What we can expect from Microsoft's big family surface products, peripherals, and software, is that Scarlett will likely be a Swiss army knife for the living room. What we can probably write off is the next Xbox being a souped version refresh - i.e. Xbox One X or PlayStation 4 Pro.
Remember that these refreshed versions promised 4K gaming, even if a lot of it was still advanced upscaling efforts, for the first time ever.
