Xbox Scarlet Rumor: Traditional and streaming consoles at launch.

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Xbox Scarlet Rumor: Traditional and streaming consoles at launch.

Combined with the game pass... streaming could actually be a feasible option next gen... I’m sure I will still go for the traditional console though.

Bring. It. On.
What would also be cool... Is if I could stream my games from my "main" console in the lounge room onto the "Streaming" console in my bedroom.
Then I can just load up my main console with external drives rather than having a duplicate of everything.



I will always go for the dedicated console as my main box in the living room but this is something that I am interested in seeing. If it works like they are saying it will I can see my self getting one for a bedroom.

Interesting, i hope i can see a good service. I'm most likely going to stay on playstation side, unless something truly amazing happens on xbox, so this option is kinda interesting for someone that just wants to play xbox exclusives. Convert the xbox console price in exclusive games to play. ( i just hope MS can do a better job whit exclusive games, this gen was kinda weak.)

Also, i think we are going to see streaming in many divices, like pc and tablets, not just "scarlet streaming box".

Prediction: In 5 years Nintendo will Lauch a "Core Mario game"  very similar to Astro Bot. That said, many will Ignore Astro Bot existence and say Nintendo created this concept.

If this is true, it might be the first time Microsoft gets me to buy an Xbox...

Cool, now if only they knew about real issues stopping them from doing so with a larger market like unreliable internet connection or data cap.
Otherwise, it could work but I'm just envisionning another Ouya here :P

Erm. Maybe you missed the part where the "traditional" console is retained?
Have garbage internet? Then the streaming box ain't for you, buy the console that isn't meant for streaming.

 I wonder is MS would do the same or lock it to this hardware.

Locking stuff to specific hardware seems like the opposite of MS' current strategy. 

They certainly don't give a shit about selling a low-price piece of hardware one time.  So, I'm sure they'd be happy to sell their streaming service to anybody with any device capable of running it.

But since the streaming box is probably made with budget sensitive people in mind. You would  think that most of them don't have the bugdet for neither the traditional version or good internet and data cap which is necessary for the streaming box.

I can see two version of Xbox and PS5

First is the cheaper one with no disc drive and less powerful one 350 USD to 400 USD

Second is more powerful (0,5 to 2 times) then the original one, and included disc and more expensive 500 USD to 550 USD
