Xbox head Phil Spencer had some fascinating info to share during Microsoft’s E3 2018 press conference. He hinted at the fact that the company might be working on developing new Xbox consoles. The latest one, the Xbox One X hit the market about seven months ago, and players have been able to have a bite from its potential. They were able to get some intense taste of its 4K resolution and HDR and more visual enhancements and 60FPS on particular games.
Spencer wants an enhanced frame rate
During an interview with Giant Bomb, Xbox’s head said that he believes that the consoles could have an improved frame rate. Jeff Gerstmann from Giant Bomb asked Spencer what would the perfect Xbox need to have. He asked Spencer if when the process begins or even maybe pre-R&D what are the things that he looks for in the Xbox line of consoles. Spencer answered and highlighted the importance of the frame rate.
If you watch what we’re doing on the Xbox consoles right now like variable frame rate, looking at higher frame rate capability. I think frame rate is an area where consoles can do more just in general. You look at the balance between CPU and GPU in today’s consoles, and they are a little bit out of whack relative to what’s on the PC side so I think there is work that we can do there.
A quicker start for the games would come in handy as well
Spencer also said that he would also love that games would start quicker. He made a reference at State of Decay which he admitted he’s a big fan of and he said that after the game tells you “ready to start” you can sit there and watch from the title screen when it installs the rest of the game.
