What can be good or bad news depends on where you want to face it.
It may seem like a lie, especially due to the lack of stock that we have experienced, but the reality is that we are close to completing 3 years since the launch of the current generation of consoles (Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5), which means that we are close to reaching what is usually considered the middle of the life cycle of a generation. For this reason, it is totally natural that users begin to think about possible new versions of these consoles, such as a slim version, or the one that interests us today, the always present pro version.
It doesn’t matter what you decide to call it, in most generations there is always a pro version of the consoles, and if we go back to the consoles before these, we had the Xbox One X, a pro version that could even offer us a 4K resolution . Now everyone is waiting for Sony and Microsoft to make a move on thisbut at least it seems that Bill Gates’ company has no such plans.
During an interview with Bloomberg, which we have learned about thanks to ComicBook, Phil Spencer expresses that they currently have no plans for new versions of their consolessomething that has been asked after the recent announcement of a black Xbox Series S and that brings 1 TB of storage.
Right now we are concentrating on the hardware we have.
With these words he makes it clear that, at least in the short term, we will not see more versions of Xbox Series X, or even a new Series, with a different letter, and that was more powerfulto get more out of the most demanding games.
Xbox Series X|S half life
We’ve already been able to get a lot out of these consoles thanks to the best Xbox Series X|S games, but even though Phil Spencer has said this, a pro version of these consoles will most likely be announced in the future. Even so, and after the stock problems that have occurred, as well as the delays due to the pandemic that we suffered in 2020, the life cycle of this generation is likely to be extended by 1-2 yearsso we would have plenty of time.
