Japanese culture dictates that they focus on quality rather than features. Their development processes are setup for consensus so that large risks are almost always minimized. this is good from a quality perspective, but it also means that they are slow to implement change.

@lhughey: It would have been the same timetable as Scorpio announcement to X1X release, as well as the same timetable from X1 launch to Scorpio announcement.

Good thought. I thought about that too. I think the difference is that the XBX still has a lot of life left in it. They could lower the price and give it some legs, whereas the X1 needed a shot in the arm.

They would have been foolish to start the hype train of the console 16 months before it goes on sale. They want to continue selling the XBX. There will be several occasions to speak more about Scarlett. They just wanted to confirm rumors and most importantly let people know that it will have BC, so games you buy from now until then will work on it.

Just give me a 12 core, 5ghz CPU. This 2700X is choking the 2080Ti

The 3700X is calling you. :)

It might make me retire my i7-920 (finally)

It's adapt or die. This MIGHT help save the industry as it will likely reduce the development time for PS and Xbox games because they'll likely have a common dev and deployment platform.

Lower production costs mean that publishers can take more chances with games too. I might be a win/win. The ONLY thing that concerns me about streaming is that services die over time. We need a service like MoviesAnywhere for gaming.

I was having fun until I encountered a bug on the train escape that I couldn't get past. I tried loading a save, to no avail. The game was broken for me.

Pay to win is sucks, pay to skin doesn't. If you wanna waste your money on outfits, do it. I don't think pay to win or pay to skin should be illegal.

They'll just have you do a low disc & cpu task while loading in a background thread.
