The debate continues on whether Microsoft has one or two new consoles in development. After only announcing Xbox Scarlett during E3 2019, voices have appeared on the network that claimed that the technological giant would have veered in its initial plans to launch two different systems designed for two different audiences.
Specifically, this information comes from Klobrille, a regular insider of the company, who says that there are more and more reports that Microsoft would now be betting on a single console instead of two new Xboxes as it was leaked . There is still plenty of time for these plans to change, but it is expected that if it becomes a reality, the manufacturer will bet on a hardware that balances price and performance.
The information appeared a few months ago about Scarlett, a more powerful system at the technical level, and Lockhart, a machine with lower capacity designed to attract the market in search of a more affordable price device.
It was also speculated that both models would be announced in the E3 2019. This was reinforced by some statements in E3 2018 by Phil Spencer in which I spoke of several consoles in development, words that I have clarified recently.
There are more and more reports coming in that the leaked next-gen Xbox two SKU strategy is put on hold for now and Microsoft might go into next-gen with one SKU. I have no updates on this other than the fact that yes, obviously 1 1/2 years before release plans can change.
