A leak from JeuxVideo, the largest gaming site in France has confirmed last year’s reports that Microsoft will announce two Xbox One consoles at E3.
Xbox Lockhart will be a cheaper version of the console with no disc tray, so pretty much a streaming and download box. Xbox Anaconda will be the One X of the next-gen lineup, with much more powerful internals. It’s also worth mentioning the both consoles will reportedly have SSDs for increased loading times.
It’s reported that these will release next year, but it’s still likely that we’ll see a cheaper, disc-less Xbox One in the next few months. It’s also reported that Halo Infinite will launch alongside these two new consoles, which would be a throwback to the original Xbox’s release which saw Halo launch alongside it. It’s also thought that Ninja Theory’s first game under the Xbox Studios banner will be looking to target the launch window.
The below specs are definitely questionable in areas, but given we’re still a while off announce, these could easily change.
