Phil Spencer has already tried games out on Scarlett hardware

Scarlett was revealed at E3, packing a mighty punch, and the Xbox chief has been sampling it himself.

Microsoft loves a hardware reveal at E3, as Project Scorpio was unveiled at E3 before it became known as the Xbox One X, and Project Scarlett was unveiled at E3 this year boasting impressive hardware for 4K visuals, 120 FPS, and more.

It's understandable then that fans want to see it in action, and Xbox chief Phil Spencer actually revealed during a Bungie livestream that he has indeed played games on the Scarlett hardware already.

That's promising, and as a reminder, this console is set to be backwards compatible with everything, as part of Microsoft's aim to keep everything and everyone as part of the same ecosystem. That's why it's not entirely necessary to get consumers to buy new hardware like this.

"I actually never really need that customer [who already owns an Xbox One] to go buy a new piece of hardware," Spencer told CNET earlier this year. "The business is around software and service growth. That is the profitable part of the business; selling the hardware is not the profitable part of the business."

Are you excited for Scarlett?
