Xbox Series X - Exclusive Details On Microsoft's Next-Gen Console

The official name of Xbox Scarlett was revealed as Xbox Series X at The Game Awards. Here's what editor Peter Brown learned about the next-gen console from his exclusive chat with Microsoft's Phil Spencer and Jason Ronald.

Microsoft has officially unveiled its next-gen console, Xbox Series X. Previously known as Project Scarlett, Microsoft's upcoming console is an absolute powerhouse of a machine. In the video above, Peter Brown and Tamoor Hussain discuss the Xbox Series X, including the console's shape, new controller, and games.

The Xbox Series X is the closest Microsoft has come to creating a PC desktop tower-looking console, though the machine can be stored either vertically or horizontally. The console's controller is shaped almost exactly like the one for Xbox One, though the Xbox Series X's controller is a little smaller and features a Share button so you can easily capture screenshots and videos.

Of course, no console will sell without games. Currently Halo Infinite is the only title confirmed to launch with Xbox Series X, but The Game Awards did reveal that the console is getting another first-party title in addition to that: a sequel to Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice. Ninja Theory had already been exploring a sequel prior to being acquired by Microsoft, and now we know those plans are moving ahead. Of what was shown, Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2 looks even more visually impressive than its already fairly stunning predecessor.
