Microsoft Teases its Next-gen Xbox Scarlett Project Ahead of Xbox E3 2019 Conference
Microsoft has been teasing its next-generation Xbox Scarlett project ahead of the Xbox 2019 E3 conference.
Microsoft has been releasing daily E3 2019 countdown videos and as spotted by several eagle-eyed Twitter users, these teasers contain secret codes in the left side of the videos. The first countdown video that Microsoft released some days ago, contains the R 255 code, while Microsoft’s second video contains the G 36 code. Microsoft’s most recent countdown displays the B 0 code. When combined, these codes form the RGB code for ‘Scarlet’ (255,36,0). We’ve included Microsoft’s countdown videos down below:
