The $150 Xbox One S All-Digital console helped push Xbox One sales up a lot during Black Friday week. Our estimates puts Xbox One sales at 913,506 units last week.

Quite a lot to take away from that tweet.

Indeed, there is quite alot you can take from that:

-MS has either completed the design of the system, or at least created a working prototype of it. I doubt he would taken a bulky "PC in a giant case" devkit home with him, which likely means that he has a working console form factor system.

-The operating system is working and already allows connection with the XB1 ecosystem. 

-All of the Xbox One games he plays have working backwards compatibility on Scarlett. 

-He mentions an Elite controller, rather than saying that he has the new Scarlett controller. This either means that the Scarlett controller (and Scarlett Elite controller) aren't done yet, or that they are bundling the Elite V2 with Scarlett instead of designing a new controller. Most likely the former, the Elite V2 controller costs too much to bundle with a system that is likely aiming for $500 or less, and it would also lack features such as the haptic feedback of the PS5 controller, which MS has surely heard about by now and will want to have similar tech in their Scarlett controller.

Fake news. This does not fit current narrative of Xbox Dev kits being behind. Will choose to ignore and/or take it as PR lies.



I feel like the Lockhart console in it's current state is a bad idea. With this gen MS was aiming for 1080p but the XBO got a lot of games that were under that and the same will probably happen to a 1440p Lockhart. I could see most of those games being 1080p and that could be a huge bottleneck ad the generation progresses. If they're gonna do Lockhart just make it discless and with maybe a few less ports but with the same 10tf power.

I'm pretty confident they won't be shipping any console with the Elite controller but that was in to just say were already up and running with current gen accessories running on Scarlett. I think one of the other mains things about the timing of that tease is to shutdown all the Xbox is behind and has no devkits narrative that's been circling everywhere this past week.

Another potential thing about the "this week I brought my Project Scarlett console home" Is maybe made to say it's only one console rather than plural as that rumour of Lockhart resurfaced a few hours previous to his tweet with this been an a planned information leak to clear up a few things.

Ya, the takeaway on the controller to me was definitely more about, "your current X1 accessories that you paid good money for will still work."
