New Games With Gold discounts are now live on Xbox consoles

Information About Two New Xbox Consoles Codenamed ‘Scarlett’ Has Leaked Shannon Grixti

One is set to be more traditional, local hardware created to compete in the power game with Sony's expected PlayStation 5 and gaming PCs, whereas the second console is reported to be a smaller, cheaper hybridized box, built with cloud streaming in mind. And yes consoles because right now, they are planning two different pieces of hardware.

Microsoft has been investing in AI and cloud resources related to gaming technologies. Depending on when in 2020 Microsoft plans on launching the Scarlet family of consoles, we may even get some concrete details at E3 2019 next summer.

Its internal hardware will make the Cloud box more expensive than a standard streaming device, but it will still be cheaper than a regular Xbox. The company is said to be experimenting with combining multiple custom Xbox consoles into a single server blade for use in its own data centers. It might be years before we hear anything more from the company, but reports surrounding the follow-up to the Xbox One have begun to spring up online in recent weeks. The box itself will handle things like controller input, image processing, and collision detection, while Scarlett Cloud handles the rest.

The outlet reports to have new information from anonymous sources regarding Microsoft's rumored cloud game streaming service, supposedly codenamed Xbox "Scarlett Cloud" - specifically that Microsoft will release a second console dedicated exclusively to accessing this service.

Since uncovering that little bit of info, I was able to dig up a few tiny bits of content about how Microsoft is developing its next-generation consoles. The devices are rumored to launch in 2020, and the streaming service is expected to work on many devices, including PCs and smartphones. One part of the game will run on the hardware, while the majority of tasks will be handled in the cloud. Any games that runs on the traditional console will run on the cloud console, and vice versa.

Having two different devices running the game (the console and Microsoft's servers) is a hard technological leap, which is where Microsoft's cloud computing tech will come in. According to internal sources at Microsoft, both consoles will be capable of running the same games without issue.

That said, there's no shortage of game streaming services at the moment, and none of them have truly caught on.
