Today, during The Game Awards, Microsoft has finally revealed to the world the official name and a first look at what was dubbed “Project Scarlett”. Today, we welcome the Xbox Series X to the next generation of gaming.
“For eighteen years and three console generations, the Xbox community has shown us the power both games and fun can have on all of us,” writes Microsoft of the console. “As we enter a new generation of gaming, we see a future where you’re instantly absorbed in your games—where worlds are even more lifelike, immersive, responsive and surprising—and where you are at the center of your gaming experience. With the new Xbox Series X, we will realize that vision”
Alongside the Xbox Series X was an unveil of the new Xbox Wireless Controller. It’s size and shape have been refined to accommodate an even wider range of people, and it also features a new Share button to make capturing screenshots and game clips simple and an advanced d-pad derived from the Xbox Elite Series 2 Wireless Controller. The new Xbox Wireless Controller will be compatible with Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs, and will be included with every Xbox Series X.
Microsoft has confirmed the console will be available during the holiday season of 2020 (no date exact yet!)
