So last night Microsoft officially revealed their next console, previously known as Project Scarlett but now confirmed as the Xbox Series X: Quite a confusing name! They already have the Xbox One X, so I wonder if there's a risk people will think the new system is just some sort of add-on, as apparently happened to Nintendo with the Wii U. We also have the PS5 coming out at around the same time (next winter), but there hasn't been a proper reveal yet. The big selling point for both systems seems to be solid state memory that will eliminate loading times, as well as backwards compatibility (PS5 will play PS4 games, and Xbox will apparently continue their existing BC programme). As for Nintendo, who knows? I reckon we're still a few years from hearing anything about a successor to the Switch, so they seem happy enough to do their own thing.
