When Microsoft first announced it was working on next gen hardware, at last years E3, it specifically said it was working on multiple consoles.

It never explained exactly what that meant but multiple rumours have pointed towards at least two models, one codenamed Anaconda and one codenamed Lockheart.

But the latest rumours suggest that Microsoft is now planning only one device and that its the less powerful Lockheart that has been scrapped.

Proven Xbox insider Brad Sams suggests that developers were finding it too difficult developing for two different consoles at once, implying the power gap between the two was fairly substantial.

The other reason is that having a low-end console, equivalent to the Xbox One S, makes less sense when Microsoft is also pushing its Project xCloud service to cater for less hardcore gamers.
