@DarthNocturnal I wonder if Nintendo's contribution to the collaboration with Microsoft is Bayonetta 3 coming to both Switch and XB1.

@redd214 Interesting bit about Phil having a Scarlett at home. I'm suspecting it not to be a final model, though, what with all the time they've still got left to tweak/fine-tune before the ultimate reveal, which will probably be at E3 or somewhere around that time.

@Grumblevolcano Just because of you mentioning that, I'm already starting to imagine how many fuses that will potentially blow in the heads of Sony fans...

@ThanosReXXX of course it's not the final model. It would be silly to think it was.

For any US folks Target is having a B2G1 free on games this Saturday only. They tend to jack up prices when they have these but will price match back down if you're persistent.

@redd214 You know, come to think of it, there's also the possibility that he has the streaming version of the Scarlett. Did he actually give any hints/details as to whether it was that or the disc-based model?

@ThanosReXXX here's the direct quote:

"And it’s started….this week I brought my Project Scarlett console home and it's become my primary console, playing my games, connecting to the community and yes, using my Elite Series 2 controller, having a blast. Great work by the team, 2020 is going to be an incredible year."

No real indication on that front. I do hope that they have that as an option however

@redd214 Well, that actually is what he himself had said, previously, that there would be two models and/or options. One for the supporter/fan of streaming or all digital, and one for the more traditional console gamer, with physical media. It seems like plans are or have been flip-flopping a bit, but apparently, the two versions rumor is active again. Here's the original article about it, and the latest news on it:

https://www.dualshockers.com/xbox-scarlett-disc-drive/
https://www.dualshockers.com/xbox-scarlett-two-models-discles...

So, basically, we're looking at Scarlett versions of the Xbox One SAD and the One X. Well, for now at least, until they flip-flop again...

hmm, I feel kinda bad seeing all the negative comments for games for gold for this month while I'm super excited for Toy Story 3 and Castlevania.

@Ryu_Niiyama Yeah... complaining about things, even if you're practically getting them for free and which you, on top of it all, don't HAVE to download if you're not interested in them, seems to be all the rage nowadays...

So who is planning on getting Scarlett on launch? Apologies if this is an old topic to ask, but I'm still trying to decide if I want an X or just wait and get Scarlett in 2 years and sell my xbone (I never buy sony or ms systems on launch, for me its a poor ROI).

@Ryu_Niiyama Not gonna get one at launch, but I'm definitely getting one. If you're wondering whether or not to invest in an X or wait for Scarlett, then I would go for the latter. With what we know now, it's fully compatible with the entire Xbox One catalog AND every backwards compatible title so far released on Xbox One, so couple that with the new games and you'd have a true multi-generational machine.

Then again: if they bottom-price the X right before they launch Scarlett...

I'm hoping my XB1 will keep me going until Scarlett has been out awhile, so she's going on sale & has pre-owned versions available ....

It depends if I have the money.

@Ryu_Niiyama a new/good condition X can be had for $300 or even less now, and obviously less if you sell the Xbox you got now. If you're going to wait for the Scarlett may as well upgrade now on the cheap. Personally wont be getting a Scarlett at launch if ever courtesy of Xcloud but will be getting the other one next November!

@Justifier you got a year to save up, you can do it!!

hmm, perhaps I'll see closer to launch. I'll have moved by then so I'll have a tv again and more reason to game at home. I guess it’s the lull before the storm and I don't feel like there are any big projects in the pipeline to make me want to jump asap. I have Gamepass (which is such a wonderful thing if you have ok internet) so for now that is giving me more than enough of a backlog. I don't know...a small part of me wants to save to invest in redoing my gaming comp. I am looking forward to seeing the controller design though. The Xbox 360/Xbone controllers are so versatile. Love them on pc... and the arcade stick compatibility that they bring.

Thanks for the responses everyone.

A Game Awards 2019 trailer went live and there's a part of the Halo Infinite Discover Hope trailer from E3 2019 in it (1:37). Looks like we may not have to wait until E3 2020 to get more info.

@Ryu_Niiyama Belated response, but it depends a little on how well they hype it and if there's any superlative features come E3 time. I don't think I'll get it at launch, but if it has some reason to do so, or an unexpectedly good price tag I could be convinced to bite. It depends how lively Switch's landscape looks at the time, as well.

(Also, off-topic, but FYI before you left on your hiatus there was a joke that totally went over your head, I don't recall what it was, but you misunderstood, thought I was a jerk, and I tagged you to clarify just at the moment NL decided to go down and break the notifications for a day, meaning you never got it...by then I didn't want to tag you again since you were going radio silent so I figured I'd clarify that whenever you returned )
