If previous reports and rumors are to be believed, Microsoft has multiple SKUs of Project Scarlett in the works, at different specs and price points. However according to a Business Insider interview with Phil Spencer, it’s not a matter of if, but when.
The BI interviewer pressed Spencer on whether we can expect multiple SKUs, mainly by acting as a grammar nazi and getting into semantics about whether Spencer said console or consoles.
“Technically that is plural,” Spencer said with a laugh after I pushed him on the technicality he invoked. “Right now,” he said, “we’re focused on Project Scarlett and what we put on stage.”Business Insider
So does that mean there’ll be more than one? Possibly. At launch? Probably not, but who knows? At some point and time? No doubt, but mid-cycle hardware updates are nothing new now, aren’t they?
