While he didn't reveal specifications, he did say that he finally played the first games on the machine this week.
Many viewers, including The Verge's Tom Warren, seemed to have noticed this. You can take a look at Warren's comment about the stream below.
Microsoft hasn't revealed any of Xbox Scarlett's specifications yet, and it seems like the company's waiting for the PlayStation 5 (PS5) reveal. According to early reports and rumors, the PS5 is allegedly twice as powerful as the Xbox One X. According to Microsoft, Xbox Scarlett is four times as powerful as Xbox One X. However, only time will tell which device comes out on top.
On a side note, Destiny 2 is a popular first-person shooter from Bungie. While the first game wasn't well-received, the sequel fixes a lot of the problems that plagued the original. If you haven't played it yet, you should before the Shadowkeep expansion lands in October.
