I would say a learning from the Xbox One generation is we will not be out of position on power or price. If you remember the beginning of this generation we were a hundred dollars more expensive and yes, we were less powerful. And we started Project Scarlett with this leadership team in place with a goal of having market success.Spencer also noted that Microsoft will probably make plenty of Xbox versions after Project Scarlett, but the next Xbox will be very competitive:
So we’re going all in. We’re all-in on Project Scarlett and I want to compete, and I want to compete in the right ways which is why we’re focused on cross-play and backward compatibility.We’ve already known that the next Xbox and the PS5 will feature the same set of specs, as both consoles will rock custom AMD silicon, based on Zen 2 and Radeon RDNA architectures. So performance is bound to be similar — Xbox Scarlett will support 8K gaming, up to 120fps, ray tracing, and variable refresh rates. The Verge notes that the new Xbox will also feature SSD storage, just like the PS5 — and Sony, of course, made a big deal out of it in recent months. As for backward compatibility, Sony also said the PS5 will support games made for previous PlayStation systems, but it’s yet to clarify how it’ll all work. When it comes to pricing, Sony is yet to make any announcements, but the company hinted that the PS5 might be more affordable than expected. After all, Sony does want as many PS4 owners to be tempted by a fast upgrade to PS5. Spencer didn’t address the Project Scarlett’s cost either, and he didn’t confirm whether Microsoft will launch one or two Xbox Scarlett versions next year. He did say that Microsoft “will talk about the SKY lineup and how it works.” The exec also said the company doesn’t want to confuse people when asked about the Xbox lineup for next fall. Microsoft currently sells different Xbox One S and Xbox One X versions, and the addition of Project Scarlett might cause some confusion, indeed.
Within this environment, scientists found that nitrogen and argon follow a predictable seasonal pattern, waxing and waning in concentration in Gale Crater throughout the year relative to how much CO2 is in the air. They expected oxygen to do the same. But it didn’t. Instead, the amount of the gas in the air rose throughout spring and summer by as much as 30%, and then dropped back to levels predicted by known chemistry in fall.The fact that the oxygen levels vary as wildly as they do is significant because it hints at as-of-yet undiscovered processes at work on the surface of the planet. For the oxygen levels to see a significant upward spike and then a dramatically fall, something must be creating it and then another something is using it. “We’re struggling to explain this,” Melissa Trainer of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center says. “The fact that the oxygen behavior isn’t perfectly repeatable every season makes us think that it’s not an issue that has to do with atmospheric dynamics. It has to be some chemical source and sink that we can’t yet account for.” Before you start dreaming of a subterranean race of Martian monsters, it's important to know that this isn't a smoking gun for life on Mars. In fact, it's far from it. There are natural processes that can generate oxygen in the absence of life, and since we have yet to find evidence of life on the Red Planet, yet can't rule it out, scientists are considering all possible options.
