New, Cheaper 1440p Next-Gen Xbox in the Works

No price has been suggested because we don't yet even know the Xbox Series X price despite it having been revealed for well over half a year.

The subscription plan, Xbox All Access, is going to be "critical" to both the launch of the Xbox Series X and the generation as a whole according to Xbox boss, Phil Spencer.

While details about the Series X alternative are still sparse, The Verge reports that it will come with 7.5GB of usable RAM and around 4 teraflops of GPU performance. The console is expected to compete with the PS5 in terms of raw power. That's where Lockhart comes in. The notes mention "LockhartProfiling modes" alongside "AnacondaProfiling", all as part of the development kit for Project Scarlett. As Warren noted on Twitter in March, the Xbox Series X has a snake etched into its main board, all but confirming that it is Anaconda. Instead, it's just been the subject of rumours.

Again like a phone contract, Xbox will give current Xbox All Access subscribers - who now have subscribed to use an Xbox One X - will have the option to upgrade their contracts to the next-gen Xbox Series X when that console launches.

In an Xbox Wire post, editor-in-chief Will Tuttle breaks down what to expect from a Series X optimized game.

Tony Hawk Pro Skater Remasters Gets More Skaters
So not only will fans receive all the faithfully recreated components of the original games but some new elements too. ACTIVISION and PRO SKATER are trademarks of Activision Publishing, Inc.

Xbox Lockhart has re-surfaced in documentation that solidifies its existence as a complementary console to Xbox Series X.

Meanwhile, adventure game Call of the Sea will be able to support a 4K resolution as well as raytracing to help bring its island setting to life.

However, that specification would mean the Lockhart mode throttles an Xbox Series X to deliver less power than the Xbox One X, which delivers 6 teraflops of power.

Given Sony's already announced an all-digital edition of the PS5 it stands to reason Microsoft would do something very similar, but an underclocked version that's less powerful than the Xbox One X is certainly a bit of a surprise.
