Booming world of play revs E3 video game extravaganza

Booming world of play revs E3 video game extravaganza

For a while, the Xbox One had lagged behind the PlayStation 4 in producing exclusive titles and subsequently seemed to lose ground to Sony's games console.

"Our cloud engineers are building a game streaming network to unlock console-quality gaming on any device", said the exec. Former Crystal Dynamics Head Darrell Gallagher is at the head of a brand-new studio, The Initiative.

At the end of the day, it's the games that determine the overall success of a console.

Unsurprisingly, the game also looks incredible.

Undead Labs have achieved success with State of Decay 2 on Xbox Game Pass, so it's little surprise to see that studio being bought out by Microsoft.

Microsoft announced 50 games at its event, 18 of which were exclusive to the Xbox system.

"We will join Master Chief on his greatest adventure yet to save humanity", said Xbox chief Phil Spencer following the trailer.




If you're a gamer, there are a lot of reasons to get excited about E3 as some big titles were announced in recent hours.

The Xbox event was packed with cinematic snippets or play of 52 games.

"The world of gaming is on a history growth path where the increasing number of gamers is met with the increasing creative power of game developers".

Nearly three years after the release of Halo 5: Guardians, Microsoft unveiled an announcement trailer for a new Halo game called Halo Infinite at Xbox's E3 briefing on Sunday afternoon. Also, the company's hardware team "is deep into architecting the next Xbox console", he said. As stated, Turn 10 Studios and Playground Games hear you and maybe, just maybe, we'll see it in a future Forza Horizon title.

Watch right along with us via the embed, which you'll find below, and let us know if you have any predictions for what may be coming out on the fighting game front for Xbox this coming year.

"We commit the full breadth of resources at Microsoft to deliver on the future of play".

Spencer was not shy in confirming the development of Microsoft's next console, and it's not hard to think that the expansion of first-party developers, renewed partnerships with Japanese developers, and improved background technology aren't meant to pay dividends at all this generation.
