On Sunday, Microsoft's Xbox head Phil Spencer confirmed the division was working with the company's cloud technology team to come up with a way to stream games with console graphics quality to any device.
If we were to simply hazard a guess, we're probably not going to hear about what's next for Xbox until E3 2020.
To counter that, Microsoft surprised with a huge number of Japanese games coming to Xbox.
During its E3 press conference, Microsoft showed footage from many new titles including Halo Infinite, Forza Horizon 4, Gears of War 5, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Fallout 76, Metro Exodus, and Kingdom Hearts 3. Despite strong success with its Xbox Game Pass subscription, streaming allows for a more mobile experience, and even OEMs like ASUS are paving the way with its new gamer-centric ROG smartphone.
Microsoft has been pelted with criticism for lacking hit video games exclusively for play on Xbox, while Sony has dominated this console generation with PlayStation 4 models boasting a cornucopia of coveted titles. That seems like a stretch, but you never know with this insane games industry of ours. Additionally it has announced the acquisition of Playground Games, and letters of intent to acquire Ninja Theory, Undead Labs and Compulsion Games.
Additionally, Spencer announced the creation of Microsoft's own new studio, The Initiative, which will be led by Darrell Gallagher, who joined Microsoft in April.
In a statement to Windows Central, a Microsoft spokesperson stated, "The Windows 10 logo on the Halo 5: Guardians product page is in reference to the existing Halo 5: Forge feature, which is available at no cost and includes custom multiplayer games and the Forge map editor". Titled Halo Infinite, its new in-engine reveal trailer is seen above.
Spencer kept mention of these new consoles very brief.
