Even though Sony wasn't in attendance, Microsoft was, and it shared the first details about its next-generation console, which for now is called simply Project Scarlett.
In an interview with Gamespot, Xbox boss Phil Spencer revealed some interesting facts about Project Scarlett. In terms of first-party games, Microsoft has not sent titles across platforms.
In the specific case of the Double Fine studios, and their new video game Psychonauts 2, Booty explains that "I really think so, we'll do it in the future (multi-platform development, ed.)". "And with Xbox One X allowing games to run at 4K visuals will make really strong visual enhancements next generation". He did share some intel about the way Microsoft is handling its older IP and franchises, which is said to be focused more on "passion" from the creators rather than an exec push on getting those back. This hints at variable modes for Scarlett, which was actually obvious from the start. Not every game should be mandated for 4K performance (Microsoft would be foolish to mandate resolution, as not every dev can handle that kind of load) but the games that do play in 4K may all hit 4K 60FPS. How fast do [games] load? Making sure that all four generations of content-so the original Xbox games that run on your Xbox One today, the OG Xbox; the 360 games that run on your Xbox One; your Xbox One games; and the new generation games-all run on the next platform is important to us. How does it feel?
As you can see in the image included above, Microsoft's detachable controllers look strikingly similar to Nintendo Switch. They can use the super-fast PCIe 4.0 SSD as extra VRAM. But the Xbox One X, as mighty as it now is, can't run all games at 60fps while hitting 4K; Red Dead Redemption 2 for instance only manages 30fps - no bad feat considering how good it looks on a 4K telly's native resolution.
Whether or not Project Scarlett can indeed hit these targets remains to be seen, but we should still expect true next-gen console gaming-all with the added benefits of last-gen game and peripheral support.
US gov’t introduces new rules restricting legal immigration
Cuccinelli was asked whether the words from Emma Lazarus's poem "The New Colossus" continue to be "part of the American ethos". The new rule will go into effect October 15, and only government aid used after that point will be assessed, Cuccinelli said.
No, Dak Prescott Is Not Asking for $40 Million a Year
Dak is entering the final season of his rookie, four-year contract that will pay him a little more than $2 million. That said, Prescott has been really good for the Cowboys, so both sides should be motivated to get a deal done.
