$100 is the absolute minimum they should go for an All Digital Scarlett possibly $150 but anything under $100 less I think would be pointless and the $50 difference on the SAD showed us no one really cared about that small of a gap to loose the disc drive.

So we are talking about these for prices? 

$499 - Xbox Scarlett with disc drive

$399 - Xbox Scarlett All Digital Edition

Most likely. Though there are rumors that Sony might be prepping a cheaper all-digital PS5 as well, so MS might want to dip really deep into their pockets and aim for $350 on All-Digital. I just hope that they don't sacrifice specs for a lower price, releasing Lockhart with lower specs would be a huge mistake unless they plan to make it a 1080p or 1440p console for $300-350. If they aim for maybe 7-8 tflop on GPU with the same CPU and same speed memory (but slightly less of it), Lockhart specs would be high enough to play the same games at 1080p-1440p that Scarlett plays at 4k, with no other graphical changes, so it shouldn't really hold back development in that case.

But the original rumor for Lockhart specs was terrible, I think it was 4 tflop Navi (RDNA), which is roughly equivalent to 6 tflop GCN (the architecture that XB1 X uses) I believe, so about the same GPU power as XB1 X. If they do go for lower specs they need to aim for 7-8 tflop Navi on Lockhart, compared to the rumored 10+ tflop Navi on Scarlett.

Yeah something like that, I'm still on the $449 price point though so 

$449 - Xbox Scarlett with disc drive

$349 - Xbox Scarlett All Digital Edition

I don't think we will see a weaker Lockhart just a SAD Scarlett which makes sense as we are already at the point of 50/50 on Physical/digital and potentially even higher at the jump into next gen, There will probably be at around 33% the userbase that have absolutely no interest in the physical medium anymore along with those who only buy physical with the other third still stuck in the middle of getting both depending on the best deals.

Just imagine only having to pay $349 and getting 1-3 months of Gamepass with the console straight out of the box and having access to Halo Infinite, One of the Forza games and another launch exclusive not to mention all the first party games already out from X1. Last gen day one for what I bought PS4 console + Knack and Killzone: Shadowfall that was $520, Not having to spend $120-180 for a few games like previous gen could be a massive selling point for MS with the Scarlett.

It's definitely an aggressive price point , Maybe I'm been to optimistic on it?

Just finished Gears 5, much prefer the Coalitions Gears over what Epic created. Gears 6 on Scarlett gonna be incredible.

Gears 5 has the best story in the series and I loved the open world areas. However, it doesn't hit the over the top level in Gears 2. Riding a brumak was a ton of fun.

I need to get onto gears... I've been too busy with outer worlds or trying to get my achievements to 100k before NeXbox Scarlett arrives. Easily achievable now. I just want a healthy buffer so if I have a month or 3 that I don't get any cheevos for whatever reason, I'll be in the clear.



I hope there is no stealth segments in Gears 6. Gears is not built for stealth and it shows.

No stealth, open world or player choices please. Trying to fix what isn't broken by just throwing half-baked ideas mechanics from other games into the mix is awful. Don't get the hype for Gears 5 story either thb.. Stuff about origins of Locust was something we already knew but they just had to tie it to Kait. Meh.



Continued Gears 5 just yesterday. Did most of the side missions in Act 3. I'm fine with the open world stuff but it's a little too empty and some of the side missions are nothing more than infested areas with standard Swarm enemies. A little more creativity would've been nice.



I really enjoyed the Gears 5 campaign personally. I'm perfectly happy to have them move forward along the same lines. I just hope that it's not as buggy next time around, that really diminished what was an otherwise thoroughly enjoyable experience for me.
