Xbox Scarlett’s release date is closing in, although judging by Microsoft’s latest comments, the company has a lot of work to do before launch.
Microsoft officially revealed more about the next-gen console during a recent interview with the Official Xbox Magazine.
In another exciting Xbox Scarlett reveal, Microsoft executive Aaron Greenburg told fans to expect fewer compromises when it comes to frame rates.
This is thanks to a heavily bolstered CPU that will potentially provide fans with 4K resolution graphics running at 120 frames-per-second.
“But, with the next-gen, I think you’ll see a big upgrade in CPU, because we really want to make sure that you don’t have any compromises with the framerates,” he said (via GamingBolt).
“Yes, we can do 4K, but we can also do 120 frames per second.
“So I think that type of capability will be something that people don’t see today.”
Little else is known about the Xbox Scarlett console, although it’s possible fans will find out more about the console at Microsoft’s X019 event.
“X019 is our global celebration of everything Xbox,” Microsoft reveals.
“We’re incredibly excited to bring X019 to London, United Kingdom from November 14-16 at the Copper Box Arena.
“It’s the biggest Xbox event we’ve ever hosted in the UK and we can’t wait to share it live with thousands of people from the incredible Xbox community there.”
The three day event starts on Thursday, November 14 and ends just a few days later on Saturday, November 16.
The first day features a special episode of Inside Xbox, which is where the new Xbox would likely be unveiled.
This will be followed by the first ever Xbox Fanfest, where fans can play a large selection of new and classic Xbox games.
Other activities include “unique activations and experiences to bring the universe of Xbox to life” and “developer meet-and-greets and autograph sessions”.
There will also be an Xbox Official Gear Store, which is said to feature exclusive X019 gear.
Fingers crossed we get that Xbox Scarlett console reveal.
