    Looking more and more likely well get more details @ E3 tomorrow.

    Microsoft is less than 24 hours away from unveiling its next-generation Xbox plans at E3, and the company has been hiding secret messages in its own teasers. Twitter users have noticed that each of Microsoft’s daily E3 countdown videos has a secret code hidden in the left-hand side of the video. The first, from a couple of days ago, has R 255, followed by G 36 in the second, and B 0 in the latest today. Together that forms the code RGB (255,36,0), the RGB color code for Scarlet.

    Rumors have suggested that Microsoft is creating two new consoles under a general “Scarlett” codename, with a high-end console codenamed Anaconda and an Xbox One S equivalent codenamed Lockhart. It appears Microsoft is ready to talk about its Scarlett plans, as the company is teasing it freely in its E3 videos.

    So they've had codenames "Scorpio" and "Arcturus"... Reminds me of a certain Simpsons character...

    Pretty much a pc at this point. Would be interested to know if you can install Windows on it with a bit of sneaky work.

    Yep got a lol at the 120fps as a selling point. Even though I appreciate that consoles are finally aiming for 60fps and beyond.

    Because you turn 1080 degrees and walk away

    I'd be doubtful at 1k. Seems like a heck of a lot of money but we'll see

    1080 degrees and you are facing the same direction

    Yeah I realise that. But if you want the mass to jump in then it can't be 1k. I know there is two revisions but still at 1k that's far too much

    Well, $1000 in 2020... Is that going to buy you a 4k 60fps PC? Not likely.

    Besides it's barely enough to buy an apple monitor stand...

    Remember mainstream people can barely afford $500 for a new console.

    Much like putting a console on tick, or afterpay etc.

    also, perhaps they will do what they did ages ago, if i recall, there was a subscription xbox >?

    People who can't afford it can get the cheaper SKU, there are plenty of adults with disposable income that can afford the top SKU - as pointed out, it is a lot cheaper than a 4k gaming PC.

    Early adopter price. Then price can tumble over time.

    I grabbed my one x at $750 a couple years ago and it's recently only just dropped properly.
