The system boasts high-bandwidth GDDR6 memory, and overall it is said to be four times as powerful as the Xbox One X, the most powerful console on the market today. We heard you. A console should be designed and built and optimized for one thing and one thing only: "gaming". Gearbox has prepared the Borderlands 2 free DLC dubbed "Commander Lilith & the fight for Sanctuary" to help you blast away the time between now and 13 September. Microsoft has gone out with a bang, however, and have announced 23 new additions to the program, as well as 8 newly enhanced games for Xbox One X.

Project Scarlett will set a new bar for console power, speed and performance, arriving Holiday 2020 alongside Halo Infinite. Though there will nearly certainly be technical compromises from this, it wouldn't be surprising to see the game also appearing on Xbox One and Xbox One X, especially given the number of cross-generational releases that we saw around the launch of the current generation.

"So honored and proud to create the future of gaming with Project Scarlett together with your incredible team", Su said to Spencer.

The commitment to consoles by longtime contenders in the market comes with the rise of video games hosted as subscription services streamed Netflix-style from data centers in the internet cloud. The only issue is that you can only redeem up to 36 months of Game Pass Ultimate by conversion.

The company dropped hints about the upcoming console long before the official announcement- they hid a secret message in the daily countdown videos for the Xbox press conference. The games in the library will change month-to-month and will include new releases.

Microsoft has officially unveiled its next-generation console, dubbed Project Scarlett, which will replace the Xbox One family in late 2020.

Several technology companies are looking to boost services revenue through games streaming, including Nvidia Corp, Sony and Electronic Arts while Amazon.com Inc is reportedly working on its own service as well.
