Yeah, I hope to God that MS isn't dumb enough to release Lockhart with less power than Scarlett. I remember Thurott spoke to multiple developers who said that they told MS that they had concerns that Lockhart's specs would hold back game development next gen, and that it was those conversations that made MS decide to cancel it or put it on hold. If Lockhart still exists, it should just be Scarlett with no disc-drive, sold for $100 less with MS eating the cost knowing that they'll make it back from the higher profit margin on digital sales. Maybe offer a 2 TB SSD model for $50 less than the 1 TB Scarlett, since 1 TB won't be alot for an all-digital console when next-gen games sizes will frequently be over 100 GB.
Exactly my thoughts on what Microsoft should do with an Xbox Scarlett without a disc drive. It could mean it being cheaper than the PS5 and giving Microsoft a small advantage next generation.
