XCLOUD: WILL THE XBOX SERIES X BE CLOUD GAMING COMPATIBLE?

Microsoft has announced xCloud, its cloud gaming project. This is a reminder to run a game on Microsoft's servers, only to stream it for display on a device, which no longer needs to be efficient. Microsoft has been very clear, the firm will not launch a console dedicated to xCloud, and instead targets Android smartphones and tablets.

However, Microsoft announced that the Xbox Series X was designed with the cloud in mind, with "unique capabilities in hardware and software", making it "possible to bring great games as easily as possible to console and beyond."

For example, you could imagine being able to stream the beginning of a game while waiting for it to be installed on the console, or try a sample of the game streaming as a playable demo.

Xbox Series X-only games are expected to be available on xCloud from 2021 when Microsoft begins switching its servers to the new architecture.

?XBOX SERIES X VS PS5: WHICH WILL BE THE MOST POWERFUL CONSOLE?

The Xbox Series X offers a much higher raw power than the PlayStation 5 thanks to its GPU equipped with 52 Compute Units with a power of 12 TFlops.

In contrast, the SSD of the PS5 has a transfer speed twice that of the Xbox.

It is still difficult to judge how this will translate into practice once in play.

RUMORS AND SPECULATIONS

We have gathered the rumors and speculations based on leaks. Microsoft has yet to confirm or assert the following.

? WHAT IS THE PRICE OF THE XBOX SERIES X?

Xbox boss, Phil Spencer, said Microsoft "has a plan to win" against the PS5. He recalled in particular that with the support of Satya Nadella at the head of Microsoft, and Amy Hood, in charge of the firm's finances, his team could be flexible on the selling price to be competitive. Jason Ronald, in charge of Xbox Series X development, also said the console was designed with price in mind, but the company could easily adjust it.

Today, the most probable according to our analysis is an Xbox Series X marketed at 499 euros.

For its part, Microsoft France has said that it is in the process of preparing a launch of the Xbox All Access offer in France. This offer allows you to purchase an Xbox at no additional cost, for a subscription with commitment including the price of the console, but also a subscription to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

Microsoft has not yet revealed the price of the Xbox All Access subscription for the Xbox Series X. The preparation of this offer in France has become more complex due to the health situation.

XBOX SERIES S: CODE NAME LOCKHART, THE NEXT-GEN LOW-COST CONSOLE

A long-standing rumor regarding Project Scarlett believes that Microsoft should release not one, but two new consoles, known by the codenames "Anaconda" and "Lockhart". This rumor was first backed up by two very reliable sources: journalist Jason Schreier and The Verge website. Behind "Anaconda" is, in fact, hiding the Xbox Series X, the high-end console, corresponding to the best characteristics already promised by Microsoft, so saying that "Lockhart" would be a supposed "Xbox Series S", or Xbox Series ES, and would have the aim to have a very aggressive price. According to our analysis, its selling price could be 300 to 350 euros.

The latter would not have a Blu-ray player, and an RDNA 2 graphics chip limited to 4 TFlops but would benefit from the same processor and the same SSD as the Xbox Series X. It could run the same games as the latter, but with a definition limited to Full HD.

Its design would be close to the current Xbox One S, and even a little smaller. It would be designed to be used horizontally, and easily integrated into a living room.

Although this console is unofficial, sources for Jez Corden for Windows Central say it has been in testing with Microsoft employees since the end of April. We were also able to confirm the existence of the project thanks to the documentation sent to the developers, and its appearance in Windows 10. If its existence does not seem to be in any doubt, its marketing remains uncertain until Microsoft does not make it official.

The company is rumored to formalize its console in August along with the announcement of the price and exact release date of the Xbox Series X.
