'Halo Infinite' trailer: Watch
The Xbox One trails Sony's (SNE) PlayStation 4 in unit sales in the current generation of video game consoles, but Microsoft is undeterred. It was a far cry from the PR babbling of recent years, that's for sure.
Microsoft's Xbox division is laying the groundwork for a game streaming service that zaps games directly to any device, whether it be your console at home or your phone on-the-go.
The company has also hinted at PUBG's latest map, which is the popular game's fourth map and is based on a winter theme.
It was nice to see somethingnew from the Halo franchise, as it is definitely Microsoft's top franchise.
Gears 5, out next year, is the biggest of three Gears of War titles in the works. No exact details on any of them, but it's good to see them treating their biggest properties with forward thinking.
Microsoft is to double the size of its first-party development ecosystem, by acquiring four studios and creating an entirely new studio. We already know Microsoft is developing a new Xbox product with a rumored "Scarlett" codename, though we're yet to find out more on the project itself. The in-game seasons change for everyone at the same time.
Microsoft announced 50 games at its event, 18 of which were exclusive to the Xbox system.
"With the ultimate freedom to explore and play over 100 great games, Xbox Game Pass delivers our members an incredible value in gaming". There was an odd intermission between the awesome gameplay reveal of The Last of Us II, and even once the show-proper got going it didn't last long enough to reach the climax of previous years.
In Halo Infinite, players won't alternate between playing as the Master Chief and others but instead will continue his saga after the events of Halo 5. If you've been constantly putting off an XBox One purchase, this could be the game to finally break you. This conference showed Microsoft trying their best to ease fans worries and get them excited again. The only thing to do now is to wait and see how they go from there, if they can deliver what they promised.
Switch Gets Super Mario Party in October
Once the field is set, the game begins, and players can move their characters between both Switches like it was one large screen. The trailer showed a group of friends putting two Nintendo Switch consoles side by side to play Super Mario Party together.
