Microsoft announced the upcoming console at E3 2019. Since then, there has been a lot of speculation about the device. This is because the announcement did not include the specs that would be used for the console. The company did say that Xbox Scarlett will have an SSD and will be four times more powerful than the current Xbox One.
Xbox Scarlett to focus on gameplay quality
Visuals will most likely be enhanced due to the extra power of the console. But Microsoft has other areas of focus in the development of the device. A company representative has commented that the smoothness of a game is something of interest for Scarlett.
The representative has said that Microsoft will want to focus on FPS and the efficiency at which a game is played — eliminating clunkiness and slowness for a gameplay perspective. Parallels were made with the company’s development of Windows.
What gamers want from Xbox Scarlett
The end goal for PC gamers is to run games at 60 FPS in 4K smoothly. Because of this, Microsoft wants to deliver this standard of performance on their console, which can handle more framerate than a PC. This is what players want, and this is what Microsoft intends to deliver.
Many focus on the beauty side of gameplay. 4K and even 8K graphics. But Microsoft is also keeping gameplay efficiency in mind while maintaining these graphical standards. Stunning graphics quickly become irritating if they cannot be maintained due to the choppiness of the gameplay.
This is an issue many gamers that upload on Youtube and Twitch know about. They need to play games, but they need to look at the quality continuously. At how a game runs and feels. This is made more difficult by the fact that recording the game takes up hardware performance and can negatively influence gameplay.
This is a lesson Microsoft has taken to heart in the development of their products. That is why they are interested in offering a full package that is centered and all-round quality.
