The main focus of the next-generation Microsoft console Xbox Scarlett is going to be frame rate and playability, as opposed to the focus of reaching 4K resolution of the Xbox One X.

In a fresh interview with Gamespot, Xbox’s head Phil Spencer talked about the Xbox Scarlett, noting how the main focus is frame rate and playability, highlighting how loading as quickly as possible is one of the most important aspects. This is somewhat different from what Microsoft tried to achieve with the Xbox One X.

I think the area that we really want to focus on next generation is frame rate and playability of the games.

This generation, we’ve really focused on 4K visuals and how we bring both movies through 4K Blu-ray and video streaming, and with Xbox One X allowing games to run at 4K visuals will make really strong visual enhancements next generation.

Spencer also touched upon backward compatibility, which is also going to be a thing moving forward.

So really, the things that you’ve bought from us, whether the games or the controllers that you’re using, we want to make sure those are future compatible with the highest fidelity version of our console, which at that time will obviously be the one we’ve just launched.

Xbox Scarlett launches next year worldwide.
