Xbox One X Successor Already In Development, May Be An Iterative Refresh Of Xbox One X- Insider

Microsoft is already working on the hardware that will follow the Xbox One X.

Posted By | On 13th, Jul. 2017 Under News | Follow This Author @Pramath1605


Later this year, Microsoft will launch the Xbox One X. The Xbox One X is an iterative improvement over the existing Xbox One, but it is a major improvement over it regardless. It marks the official debut of Microsoft’s vision of a gaming future where hardware generations are no longer the norm- continuous compatibility, much like in the mobile and PC gaming markets, is instead standard.

It sounds like this is a plan that Microsoft intends to stick to. Windows Central’s Jez Corden, well known Microsoft insider who has been at the forefront of many leaks from within the company previously (including the Xbox One X, back when it was called the Scorpio, itself), has revealed that the next Xbox console is already under development at Microsoft.

According to Corden, the new Xbox is not due to launch any time soon- Corden reckons a 2 year window is too early for it to be launching, meaning the earliest we can expect it is some time in 2020. He suggests that the new system may be a refresh of the Xbox One X, much like it was for the original Xbox One (though it is important to note that he hasn’t committed to the idea)- he also points out that as far as Microsoft is concerned, there are no more ‘generations’, meaning a ‘next generation’ Xbox in the traditional sense of the term may never happen.

Corden also dropped an intriguing hint that Xbox boss Phil Spencer has heard and is aware of the feedback Microsoft has received regarding the Xbox first party lineup. Corden didn’t say anything more, but the fact that he acknowledged the sentiment at all suggests that there may be a change internally at Microsoft in terms of how it approaches its portfolio of first party games. If so, I must admit that is what I am excited about the most, more than even new Xbox hardware beyond the One X.

As usual, this report should be taken with a grain of salt but Jex has a solid track record. If all of this is true, then we should hopefully start hearing rumblings of the new Xbox by the end of next year- it’ll be interesting to see whether it will be able to hold muster to the hypothetical PS5, which, going by common rumors and speculation, will be launching around the same time that the Xbox One X successor might launch.

      So the “Scorpio Monster” is really just a salty Jaguar checking-boarding stop gap.

    • OldSocialist

      Quite right. Digital Foundry, various enthusiastic developers and Microsoft’s remarkably honest benchmarks all lie and you know everything there is to know about Microsoft tech, oh great guru.

    • Wei Feng

      Thankyou

    • Mark

      Your welcome

    • Mr Xrat

      A scoop from Slimy Mikey, sh**l indie devs and some desperate benchmarking after a sad month. Yeah, it’s not been good for the Xgimps after a year of bulls**t.

    • Poseidon team

      LOL… you’re are a total mess… brag about Jaguar and talk about TFLOPS. You don’t understand the difference between CPU and GPU. LMAO.

      Pony… watch & learn son… Xbox has the fastest CPU this generation. Also a “small website & group” called Digital Foundry compiled this table…

      lol, i see what you did there…lol.

    • Dougdec92

      so will it make exclusives on its own or MS still has to make them for x1x, i pray it is the former cos that cpu is way too powerful for MS to be manually making games for it….oh wait!!!, that is why it doesnt have dem exclusives to start with!!

    • Jose Arcadio Morales

      Dude try harder

      “Xbox Next – 25-30 TFLOPS (4.5-5x faster than Xbox X ‘Scorpio’)”
      Nope, clearly nope.
      If Microsoft stick with AMD and continue with “premium console”, we can easily guess that the next Xbox will have 2017 RX Vega TFlops at best. So around 13TFlops…

    • Mr Xrat

      You’d have to be stupid to think the next gen will be 25TFs.

      Oh wait, it’s Sp4ctr0.

    • Dougdec92

      and they will as ever wont have games for them or you never realised?

  • Poseidon team

    It will follow the same pattern in 2019-2020… Sony announces PS5 with 8-10 TFLOS and 16G RAM, Xbox announces Scorpio 2 with 12-14 TFLOPS and 22GB RAM. By this time X1 X will be the base model at $300, and PS5 will seat in the middle at $400 and Scorpio 2 at $500.

    Phil Spencer said at E3 this year, they understand that users want power… and they will continue delivering the most power console from now on.

    Sony fan boys can adjust to the new reality, never again they will talk about any PlayStation console having the best graphics for any multiplats.

    • Holeybartender

      No the real reality is that no one will ever buy a launch console again,console sales will dwindle so far down that the console gaming industry will definitely die. These mid-cycle upgrades will kill the console gaming industry,mark my words.

    • Mr Xrat

      Same pattern will be Xgimps waiting an extra year for more failed promises and awful looking games.

      “Uncle Phil said!!!” Yes, we know.

      We know who he is. Trying to pass as an Asian only worked about half a day. He tendency to upvote himself makes it too obvious. He was all about sony up until I called him out on a certain situation then he brought out the “im a pc gamer” card.

    • Dougdec92

      lol, he knows his ways, he is good at causing chaos…lol

    • greatnessIsaLIE

      He has over 20 accounts.
      If you ever see any negative troll comments on Xbox articles it’s him. Regards less of the name. Just look for the up votes because no one really up votes. He even argues with himself sometimes about which console is better.

      If I had to guess I’d say he’s an Xbox fanatic that just wants to make Sony fanatics look crazy and psychotic.

    • Mr Xrat

      Sounds like the Xbollox lacks power if you’re already hyping up its replacement and it’s not even out yet, bowl cut boy.

    • Dougdec92

      So does the xbox one x, it “compromises” to play 4k60, we’ve heard it in quite a few games like Anthem, ACorigins and even Ms own touted exclusive….Crackdown. Pls the next gen would be doing true 4k, not this anyways.

      Maybe it’ll be “true 4K” this time.

    • kreator

      Don’t diss the Pro like that..

  • OldSocialist

    The evidence of the glut of games last year seems to indcate that Microsoft doesn’t focus on hardware over games but rather has dry periods, just a Sony did in its conveniently forgotten “Indystation” year.

    • Holeybartender

      I’ve never understood why people think that 20+ games at launch is not enough to start with. 20 games and you can’t even find enough games to play for 6 months until more arrive?

      It was sad that Xbox fanboys kept giving Sony fanboys so much s*** about having so many Indie games and giving stupid names like “Indystation” to the PS4 all the while Microsoft was c***blocking and pissing on Indie developers at every turn with the Xbox One.Now look at them, screaming about how great they are after E3 because they have Indie games.

    • Learned Handgun

      The indyststion was a response to resolution boasting by sony. SONY had higher resolution and fanboys made it a big deal so xbox fanboys responded by pointing out how the more powerful system was largely only used for indie titles.

    • Mr Xrat

      That’s because they’re hypocrite scum with no self-awareness or self-introspection. The sooner they all f**k off the better.

    • Dougdec92

      i just cannot stomach MS hypocrisy, it is what has left them so far behind.

    • Mr Xrat

      You’ve had a dry gen, Xgimp.

      Funny how the PS4’s had more and better games since the start, but facts is something Xgimps have always struggled with.

    • Dougdec92

      True, Sony had a dry period but i reckon MS had to buy out a certain popular game…Sony does it too but the gap Sony gives MS is too much and mind you, Sony is either remaking classics like God of war or launching heavy hitters like nioh, hzd, days gone. Ms can win with exclusives, maybe not win but stay a bit more significant still.

  • Scared

    They started on a new Xbox after the launch of the Xbox one as well. I assume don’t did the same thing too. R&D takes time.

  • Holeybartender

    Well there goes Xbox fanboy’s claims that Sony fans are scared of XB1X just because they are talking about the PS5 “too early”.

    They just can’t seem to comprehend that these companies are always thinking about what they are going to work on next. XB1X isn’t even on shelves yet and the stirrings of the Xbox Two begins.

    Also I love it when a source of a company’s leaks is so well known that they still call them “leaks”.

    • Omar

      Gamers should have learned this from both hardware OEM’s and software developers. I remember both saying that when one project is complete, there’s a short break and then back to work to see what’s next. This is no different and shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone, yet it is.

    • Mark

      Lol nah it’s just gaming media man…all us fans know

    • Mike

      Well, if you had all been paying attention, you would have noticed that Phil already said long ago even at the time XoneX was announce that Xbox ones successor was already being worked on.

  • Psionicinversion

    these consoles take years to plan and design so if there launching a new console every 3-4 years they will be designing the next one as soon as the one there releasing is done

    • Holeybartender

      After this gen I don’t see how they are going to keep this up.You already have alot of people who are still stuck with last-gen consoles, you have late adopters who already wait 2-3 years to buy a next-gen console,you have people who trade-in their old consoles for the new ones because they can’t afford to buy one at launch. All those people are either going to multiply or not bother to buy a console at launch ever again if they know there’s another one right around the corner. I foresee this hurting the sale of consoles more than helping them.

    • Psionicinversion

      well its not that different in terms of trading old consoles for new one versus buying a new GPU. buy a new gpu and sell your old one. there will always be a market for old stuff. all consoles moving forward should be backwards compatible with the games made this gen and with MS the games made on consoles in the future should be able to run on the old ones which by then is the consoles now within reason. at some point youve got cut the old stuff off. id cut the x1/s off asap.

      the point of going x86 and like GCN is to have it lower cost. AMD advances the tech and MS sony make some custom modifications so they can iterate faster. technically the sale of the new stuff should be lower but its cheaper to make so doesnt need to sell as much to get there money back from the games

    • Holeybartender

      I know what you’re saying but will it be enough to lower the cost of launch consoles to back down to around $300.$500 for a console already causes an uproar with the majority of console buyers and to spend that much every 3 years is not going to be too appealing. It’s one thing to have something like the Slim consoles where they have almost the same parts but cheaper and they can lower the price of the console but major upgrades like Xbox One X are always going to keep the consoles at launch prices.

      If Spencer said to justify the costs of the XB1X it had to be sold at a premium and he doesn’t expect to move the same amount of units as a launch console would (Sony said almost the same thing) then how could they possibly expect us to buy a new console at a premium or sell enough of them every 3 years?

    • Psionicinversion

      you can make a console for whatever you price you want. its just bits of hardware and you get choose whatever you want that hits that price point.

      X1X is only $499 because of its 365mm2 APU, 12GB ram, 4K bluray player, and vapour chamber cooling system to keep the higher frequency APU and amount of ram cool in a such a tiny box. plus the power delivery system that there on about might be more complex than usual so might cost a bit more.

      its designed to keep[ the cost of the design and R+D down so instead of it costing 400million it might cost 200mill for example. so you dont need to sell as many games to get the cost back

    • C. Hoffer

      I agree. if they stay on this track the next die shrink could easily include a new drop in replacement CPU or gpu with little extra dev now they are off generation changes.

    • Dougdec92

      you forgot to also add that as these consoles start to make futuristic games playable with ease, game dev tech will also be expensive and 60 dollars for a base game wont cut it for devs, unless we want our standard versions cut up into episodes like what telltale and even hitman did. We may have to pay more or cope with dlcs or obligatory bundles and editions.

    • Dougdec92

      i agree with you but with the hyping up of great new consoles and the inherent fact that you are being left behind, a time will come when trading off your consoles will just be feasible enough if you were giving out your old console to you younger sibling while you game on the new one. Trading off would fade to non profitability as everyone would want their very own from the start.This can been seen by the surge initially for newer console sales by early adopters and that percentage does increase mostly with every generation and how we feel left behind on the old ones. Video game discs stand against this test as it is the same game no matter how you turn it.

    • Dougdec92

      true, with this mid cycle refreshes, there will be a time where gamers will skip the first console only to buy its refresh 3 years later, like skipping ps5 to buy the ps5pro, then skipping the ps6 to buy the ps6 pro and so on, that should deter Sony and MS to stop churning out consoles like smartphones.

    • Eddie Battikha

      Nah itll be the opposite 3 year refreshes are gonna be the norm and the best stratagey for Sony and Microsoft going forward, itll be a little bit of teething in the beginning for Console gamers but without a doubt the right move for Sony anf Microsoft theres always gonna be Early Tech Adopters and 3 years to me is the sweet spot.

    • Holeybartender

      No,the sweet spot is that by 3 years the consoles are fully optimized and game development improves allowing for more enriched experiences. With mid-cycle refreshes as soon as they get to that point in a console’s life it’ll be back to learning to optimize newer hardware again. The problem with the next gen games is that they will be 100gigs or more a game and with mid-cycle refreshes they will only get bigger because there’s no time to optimize them. The next Halo is over 100gigs for the Xbox One X! You’ll fill your harddrive in less than 3 months and then where will you be? At the store buying external harddrives every 6 months.

    • Eddie Battikha
  • Holeybartender

    I’m a diehard console gamer and I buy a new console as soon as they release but even I’m considering never buying a launch console again and just waiting for the upgrade. If I’m willing to do that how many other people like me are too? Yeah,it’s a scary but very plausible scenario.

    • Learned Handgun

      There won’t be a launch title like there was before. If generations are over than each update is a launch title of sorts. You could wait until the update drops to buy the (than) older console. Like buying an iphone 6 when iphone 7 comes out. And consoles aren’t likely to die anytime soon. Pcs will continue to improve but so will consoles. And plenty of people prefer the simplicity ood consoles.

    • Holeybartender

      Sorry,didn’t see your response down here. Anyways your right, if generations are over then every upgrade means console specific launch games. That means with each new upgrade more people will be left out from newer games and will be stuck with older models,much like they are now,but at a drastically higher percentage thus declining launch console sales and in-turn forcing Sony and Microsoft to abandon the console market. The majority of console owners do perfer the simplicity of consoles that’s why a 3-4 year mandatory (yes mandatory,because how long before devs will not tolerate being held back from improving games and features with all that extra power at their fingertips?) upgrade is a bad idea.

    • Learned Handgun

      Devs care just as much about sales as they do graphics. Also, look at pc gaming. Developers don’t only put or games that run on the 70 or 80s (970, 1070, 980, 1080). Games run better on better hardware but they are still designed to run on lesser. I see xbox one og getting support until whatever comes after the X. And the X getting support until whatever comes after.

    • Omar

      Ur scenario isn’t likely to happen. Just like iPhone, people some people buy the S and some buy the full version upgrade. What u fail to realize is that MS and Sony care more about software sales than they do hardware sales. Now they’ve added services to their revenue stream also. Hardware is just a means to get u to buy software and services.

      Also, if there are no generations, ur install base becomes virtually unlimited, just like on PC. Software sales should actually increase because like u said, u’ll stay with the older console longer but devs will keep making software for it as well, thus keeping everybody happy, at least until the old system can no longer reasonably push the newer games. It’s a sound strategy and doesn’t point to the death of console gaming in any way. If that were the case, PC gaming would be dead.

      The real threat to consoles is actually streaming games but is it a threat? MS & Sony will adjust and again, it becomes a fully “services” industry.

    • Psionicinversion

      streaming games is no threat, sony knows that for a fact cus its psnow service is a failure

    • Omar

      I didn’t mean streaming and making u pay only for tiers of service. At some point, u should be able to buy ur games digitally and play them instantly, still paying for XBL and PSN to play online. Not exactly sure if/when this will happen but it’s viable in the future.

      It’s not a threat to the companies or consumers really, just to the current standard and we all know that standards change.

    • Psionicinversion

      itll be viable when the cost for them is significantly cheaper than it is now to stream game to you. you can buy games on GeforceNow and then pay for a certain amount of hours for a certain power you might need a shield though.

      i doubt itll replace having on your own machine for quite some time yet

    • Omar

      I don’t disagree with u which is why I said “if/when” and also stated it being future in my comment.

    • Dougdec92

      Maybe the advent of 6g would make that possible, like the way streaming youtube isnt abominable now.

    • Holeybartender

      Sure it is likely. Even if they adopt the mobile model for making consoles there’s one thing they will NEVER adopt and that is selling them. You can get the newer version of iPhone for “free” by simply signing a contract for service,Sony or Microsoft won’t offer that EVER. In no way will they give you a $500 console just for getting PS Plus or Xbox Live Gold. You’re wrong if you think they care more about software sales more than hardware sales. Sony is a hardware company and Microsoft is a software company trying to expand into the hardware business with the Xbox division.

      Oh yeah the PC (and cellphone) user base is unlimited alright and that’s because they are not limited to gaming like the gaming console industry is. They are used for personal and business purposes but console serve one purpose.

      Software sales won’t increase enough to dramatically affect anything because the people who hold on to older console longer are but a small percentage of console owners. Now if they continue to upgrade like this I’m sure that percentage will grow substantially as the years progress and then you’re left with fewer customers at launch and sales suffer so much that there’d be no interest to keep making consoles for Sony or Microsoft.

    • Dougdec92

      true

    • Omar

      No, it’s not likely. Ur theory ignores some very important facts.
      1) Sony and MS do care about console sales but not like iPhone. Unlike Apple, they don’t make a ton of money off the sales of the hardware and often sell consoles at a loss to make up for it in software.

      2) Apple doesn’t sell their iPhone for free, the cellphone carriers do and that’s because they tie u into a contract that is binding so they make their money back. Apple has already signed a contract with the cellphone carriers and their money is all but guaranteed. The carriers don’t make money off the phones either, it’s the contracts and services they make money from, otherwise the phones wouldn’t be free. Yes MS is getting into hardware heavily and they care but let’s not confuse that they still think software and services first. Hardware is just a vehicle to get the customer there.

      3) Yes, we all know that personal computing allows more people to casually play games and that those gamers are lumped in the more traditional or “hardcore” gamers. U miss the point about the unlimited part though……if MS blends 3-4 generations of consoles making sure that all gamers get to play the same newly released game, that does a few things A) better for devs because when they make a game using a single dev kit that works for 4 systems, they’re likely to make more money than if a generation starts over with a small install base. B) consumers won’t feel forced to upgrade because they can have access to all the latest games for years to come. C) Since MS doesn’t really make much money on brand new hardware, they can continue to rake in software and services sales across the blended generations (which is their main goal. D) Counting all Xboxes as one will allow them to avoid the direct system sales comparison to Sony since Japan will never be Xbox friendly and EU is a Sony stronghold.

      All of this makes it a sound business strategy and I’m sure they’ve thought of these things in their board meetings. Is it a gamble? Sure but so is doing things the traditional way while the world evolves. Every time they release a new system its a gamble on the customer’s loyalty. This at least removes the necessity or curiosity (to a large degree) for the customer to move to a different platform. Much less of a gamble. Think on it.

    • Holeybartender

      1. Duh.
      2. Sony and Microsoft ARE the carriers so there’s no getting their money back for free consoles unless they up PS Plus/XBL Gold subscriptions to a monthly fee contract.
      3. The only way for that to work is if they made the console and games to encompass future generations as well and technology can advance too fast to do that. You could run into a Cell chip situation every other generation or 2 generations even and then where is your bc if that happens?

      The majority of console owners don’t care about backwards compatibility and the only way to change that would be to keep game design the same going forward. You just can’t guarantee that.

    • Omar

      1) Unnecessary response

      2) Ur the one who assumed that likening to cellphone carriers meant they would offer a subsidized price. I never said they would and don’t think they will. And yes, I already knew that my comment in effect equated them with the carriers.

      3) This response ignores the PC gaming market. Different tech yet always backward compatible. Why is that? Have consoles leapfrogged PC’s in gaming capability? No. So where’s the argument for that? It’s always just talk to get consumers to buy into the next gen. And not caring about BC? Why? Because we’ve been programmed that way. If it was something they gave us and then took away, we’d be pissed so u can’t play that card here.

      Honestly, ur theory doesn’t allow for evolution of consumer satisfaction. Ur kinda banking on the model staying the same and that’s where ur argument fails IMO. Look, we don’t have to debate. U threw down the gauntlet when u said it’ll make them fail and it seems they’ve already decided what they’re gonna do. Even MS insiders said as much. So u’ll either be wrong or right when the time comes but I’m sure u haven’t put enough thought into it, or understand market fluctuations or the needs of the general consumer population. U have to think bigger than urself and ur own personal needs and ask what most people are likely to do. Not trying to insult u but it’s obvious u don’t think “big picture” so this argument is pretty fruitless. Just wait on the results of ur claims. U put the stake down, not me.

    • Holeybartender

      First off,forget the first two thngs A) Sure it was but I was agreeing that that is how it is and B) I only associated it with that because that’s the business model they use.

      Second,we are talking future probability here and alot can change in that 3-4 generation gap. 1st. Backwards compatibility banks on computers using x86 architecture and it could very well change in 10 years,we don’t know.
      2nd. If consoles are adopting a more PC like structure then it’s plausible they could eventually surpass them in gaming capability.
      3. PS3 Slim took away bc from PS3 and they still don’t care.

      If they are doing crazy sh*t like this then anythings possible. https://www.theverge.com/2016/2/16/11018018/5d-data-storage-glass

      Oh I know all about understanding the needs of the general consumer population,I’ve been in retail more than 10 years. I also know that their mindset hasn’t changed much in 20 plus years regarding game consoles. I can only make assessments based on the current consensus and that is consumers don’t like drastic change.

    • Omar

      True they don’t like change but force it on them with no real alternative or make it just appealing enough and people will adapt. At first I absolutely hated the idea of these mid-generation refreshes. Now I see it as not such a bad thing if they’re consistent and consumers have a choice in when to upgrade. As long as they get money on software, it’s a win for both sides.

    • Holeybartender

      We all saw what happens when it’s forced on them with no real alternative,Microsoft can attest to that. They changed the Xbox to an always online console,told them Kinect was mandatory and claimed it couldn’t be changed. Once they saw people’s refusal to adapt oh how quickly Microsoft’s stance changed.

      See, we already have a consistent and consumer friendly standard the way generations are now. Console life-cycles now allow time to save to upgrade to the next generation without missing it,to build your game library and allow time to squeeze every bit of power from the console. Changing to a shorter life-cycle threatens that for most people.

      Sony and Microsoft both had to assure the people that all games would play on both versions and in doing so limited devs from fully utilizing the upgrades obvious power difference just to appease that fear. Just how long do you think devs will tolerate that before they say “F*** it,I want to use that power difference to make a Pro/X only game or I want to add a feature the OG model can’t handle and if they don’t like it I’ll just jump to PC from now on.”? If that happens it will be back to console generations but with shorter life-cycles and forcing people to buy a new console every 3 years instead of 7-10 just to play the latest games.

      Anyways, I’ll let you go now.Been fun.

      I said with no real alternative. The alternative was PS4. If PS4 and XB1 had the exact same policies, people would buy. I also said they could make it just appealing enough. And while we complained about MS’ proposed XB1 policies and many abandoned the brand, devs snuck in some of those policies through the backdoor by giving us games that require internet in order to play. The way things are done isn’t the way things will always be done. Change is the only constant in life and u must be ready to adapt. It doesn’t mean we should blindly buy products and follow. Just understand when change is 1) inevitable and 2) viable

      same here, like i replied earlier, just wait for the pro and x versions of consoles, you would have spaced out your 500 dollar purchase and you wont have to bother about power as your pro or x console can last you till the next one.

  • DA-ROOSTER

    PS5 in 2019
    Next-gen Xbox 2020

    • C. Hoffer

      Expect a 3 year cycle. Your numbers look realistic but I really want to see double that in 2020

  • DA-ROOSTER

    PS5 10 Teraflops GPU releasing in 2019
    Next-gen Xbox 12 Teraflops GPU releasing in 2020

    • Luke Skywalker

      it would need to be least 14tflops to make a difference

    • Eddie Battikha

      Yup 2021 Max,

  • S. Cruz

    Shocker here they are planning their next console…..whoooo hooio

  • Luke Skywalker

    Build it and they will come. I like the hardware focus Microsoft is back on. This should push the competition so we get great games and great hardware.
    Prameth I think you’re the one who’s misguided. How can you say a platform company shouldn’t focus on building good platform for developers??

    • Mark

      He thinks Microsoft is focusing mainly on resolution instead new IP, which is wrong because 1) they tried with Qbreak, Sunset O, and Recore, but failed sales-wise, so they are trying. And 2) Microsoft pulled Fable, Scalebound and something else, so they’re financing these games but their quality is in flux. Thus, we’re now hearing this “Microsoft doesn’t care about exclusives” sentiment….so can’t we agree that Sony has the exclusives but Microsoft will soon have the hardware? Well atleast I can accept this

    • Eddie Battikha

      U couldnt of said it any better.

  • Michael

    So is the next mustang, camaro and corvette. Gaming news is just s joke nowadays.

  • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    What a joke. I’d be willing to bet that the next iteration will have a larger, more expensive proprietary hard drive, it will probably be allowed to run Steam games, and it probably won’t have any type of optical drive at all. They have no other choice but to go after Sony and the PC gamers by offering Steam support on the next Xbox since the Xbox branded exclusive game portfolio is clearly drying up.

    • Dougdec92

      lol, seeing how they are hugging pc gaming, they may as well buy steam.

  • Mr Xrat

    Xbox sh**ls pretending to be journalists talking this up already? Xgimp logic dictates that this means the Xbollox is a massive disappointment. Right, Xgimps? At least the Pro came out first.

    Xgimp scum need gassing.

  • Dougdec92

    lol, well MS did indicate no more generations so that is to be expected, the more the reason for Sony to launch ps5 later than rumours expect but well, wishful thinking on my part. Every company is entitled to its business model but i hope MS isnt seeing the xbox as the new Lumia. The next couple of years will be intense anyways, looking forward to them.

  • Dougdec92

    i dont agree, before the announcement of xbox one x, the ps4 has been more powerful than xbox one since 2013, it just makes sense to plan the future for a console already released 4 years ago. X1x’s mettle hasnt been tested yet, it is even 4 months away from release. Compared to Sony’s, they making their plan of the next iteration look like Android apps update.

    • Smart guy

      I agree that the mantle hasn’t been fully tested yes but not that sony will upgrade like android. Sony’s main money is from PlayStation other then that they don’t do well anywhere else. Periodically with marvel movies yes but it’s still not enough. Sony can’t afford to upgrade so often where MS can. But even for myself i hope neither decide to do constent upgrades but we can’t all get what we want. I’m a fan of both but truth be told the pro is a joke. And MS stated that they will make sure they will never be the weaker (hardware) console again and I believe that but again consistent console upgrades isn’t good.

  • SalvagedXBot

    Love the idea of console generations disappearing. Honestly since Phil took over it feels like the Xbox brand has some great long term plans in place.

  • Eddie Battikha

    Fall 2020 or 2021 Release

  • Eddie Battikha
