Despite reports that the Microsoft-owned firm's much-anticipated next-gen console Xbox Scarlett will come as both a high-end version and "cloud console", Xbox head Phil Spencer has ruled it out.

He told GameSpot: "We are not working on a streaming-only console right now.

"We are looking at the phone in your pocket as the destination for you to stream, and the console that we have allows you to play the games locally."

Meanwhile, Spencer has revealed the console will focus on higher "frame rate and playability of the games".

He said: "I think the area that we really want to focus on next generation is frame rate and playability of the games. This generation, we've really focused on 4K visuals and how we bring both movies through 4K Blu-ray and video streaming, and with Xbox One X allowing games to run at 4K visuals will make really strong visual enhancements next generation."

Scarlett will "set a new bar for expectations of console gaming".

The firm's Corporate Vice President Mike Ybarra teased it will "enable developers to make the best possible versions of their games".

Ybarrar said: "As we look across the entire design of the system everything from the SOC (system-on-chip), to the memory that we have to the SSD that we've put in there.

"t's really about eliminating all those bottlenecks, so those game developers can really deliver on their visions, to try and enable developers to make the best possible versions of their games.

"I will say that we're very confident in what we're building, something that will set a new bar for expectations of console gaming."
