First look at Xbox Series X console revealed at The Game Awards

This is the console formerly known as "Project Scarlett".

Announced during The Game Awards, the next generation of Xbox consoles appears to be the company's most advanced console ever. When it arrives, consumers will be able to upgrade to a console featuring four times the power of what is offered by the current Xbox One X. Despite the increased power, Microsoft says its next-gen console will be 'quiet and efficient'. The new addition is the Share button that will make it easier to share screenshots of your gameplay and capture clips. Next holiday, Xbox Series X will lead us into the future of console gaming. Honestly, it looks more like a gaming desktop PC than it does like an Xbox One. Additionally, it will be backward compatible across all the previous generations of Xbox. "Where you are at the center of your gaming experience".

The only major detail missing from today's announcement is the pricing for the console. It had a bit more character than "Series X", which...

It marks the second game to be revealed by Ninja Theory since its purchase by Microsoft past year, following on from hero shooter Bleeding Edge. Powered by our custom-designed processor leveraging the latest Zen 2 and next generation RDNA architecture from our partners at AMD, Xbox Series X will deliver hardware accelerated ray tracing and a new level of performance never before seen in a console. The company needs a hit console, along with successful games to prove its dominance in the console market.


Ninja Theory's Senua's Saga: Hellblade II was the game used to showcase the power of the Xbox Series X, which promises "4K at 60FPS, with possibility of up to 120FPS, including support for Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), and 8K capability".

This bombshell announcement came out of left field at the Game Awards 2019, and it will be coming in Holiday 2020. It will be available on the Xbox Game Pass upon its official debut.

Microsoft's long-awaited Ori and the Will of the Wisps also received a release date, of March 11, 2020.
