Microsoft decided to speak on the alleged second console Xbox, which would be created by the giant from Redmond. The company admits that this is not true and the only console that Microsoft is working on is Project Scarlett.
Rumors about competing for the 5 PlayStation consoles from Microsoft drag on for many months. No wonder, the final versions of the 9th generation consoles should be known in 2020 or 2021.
One of the most-emerging speculations on the web was that Microsoft is getting ready to launch not one, but two new generation Xbox consoles. Rumors did not stop even after the June announcement of the Project Scarlett console, during which Microsoft revealed the first details about its own device.
Commentators still suspected that the company might have one more cheaper version of Xbox in store, but created for streaming without support for physical media. So something like the Stadia project from Google.
Microsoft interrupts speculation: there will be only one Xbox
Now Microsoft has decided to stop the endless speculation. On this topic in an interview with GameSpot said the head of the Xbox project, Phil Spencer, who previously suggested that we can not count on the second console. Spencer has explicitly confirmed that Project Scarlett is the only console in the near future that will be shown by Microsoft.
He also added that we should not expect that games in the cloud to soon become a standard, although this trend will certainly not remain indifferent. According to Spencer, the reason Microsoft is not working on a game streaming console is the multitude of devices on which games can be played from the cloud.
We are currently not working on a console that supports only streaming. In our opinion, the phone in your pocket is the right device for streaming games, and the console allows local playing of games
