Recently, Microsoft confirmed its Xbox Games Showcase regarding the Xbox Series X first-party lineup, which will be held on July 23rd.
While Halo Infinite by 343 Industries (software house already famous for scoring the last in the series) has been confirmed to appear at the event, some rumors say that a new Perfect Dark and Fable 4 could also be announced. As for the price of the console, it seems that this will not yet be revealed to the public, at least according to a very strong identity in the sector.
In fact, the analyst Daniel Ahmad makes us believe that he created a fake poll on Twitter, suggesting that the price would not have been revealed. Additionally, Tom Warren of The Verge then responded by specifying that there will be “just games” announcements. If Microsoft won’t give us a price this month, it could actually do so at Gamescom Opening Night Live 2020, but it’s not said that the conference will not be enriched by an interesting surprise.
no, just games

Likewise, we’ll have to see if Sony will follow suit and simultaneously announce the price of the PlayStation 5. There are also rumors that suggest the announcement during the Xbox Game Showcase of the phantom low-cost version of Xbox Series X, codenamed Lockhart.
The console, so rumored in recent weeks, is said to have 7.5 GB of RAM, a CPU with a lower clock than its counterpart, and a GPU with 4 teraflops. If we compare these few info on Lockhart’s hardware with Xbox One X (which mounts 12 GB of RAM and a GPU with 12 teraflops ), this is much lower but seems to come closer to a PlayStation 4 Pro.
In any case, the console could be dedicated to Project XCloud and will offer us more advanced architecture. We remind you that these are currently only rumors, and that the Redmond house has not yet made official communications about it.
The only sure thing is the event scheduled for July 23.
