At, The Game Awards Microsoft official unveiled their next generation Xbox console. The Xbox Series X. This is the official name of the new Xbox console, whose codename was Project Scarlett. 

Xbox has selected a bold and innovative design language for the next-gen Xbox console….a tower. The new gaming tower boasts a monolithic and industrial aesthetic with clean lines. The design is thoughtful and innovative. Its design is imposing yet uncomplicated. Shifting our perceptions and at the same time challenging them. Throwing our idea of what a gaming console is from a visual standpoint. Challenging what a console can be and do. 

I believe it was a bold and ambitious move by Xbox. I believe some will absolutely love the design and some people will hate it. While most people will fall in the middle. I personally like the design choice but, that is me. 

We did not receive any new information regarding specs or price of the new Xbox Series X. We know from Project Scarlett specs that it will be running a custom 8-core AMD Zen 2 processor, SSD storage of 1 TB, ray tracing, maximum 8k res, and a maximum of 120 frames per second. The Xbox Series X is planned for release during Holiday 2020.

We were also given a glimpse of what the new Series X could do with the debut trailer of Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2. The graphical and visual fidelity during the trailer is extraordinary with Series X. Everything from the photo realistic landscapes, to lighting effects, to character models and expressions. All look phenomenal running on the Series X architecture.  Check out the trailer of above for the next entry into the Hellblade story.
