The knock-on effect from that though is that not only is there a lack of interest in Xbox in Japan, but western players who enjoy Japanese games have no reason to pick up an Xbox One.

Our interest was piqued, therefore, when Phil Spencer took to the stage for the Xbox E3 conference and talked about the idea of being able to stream console quality games to any device.

The British theme extends to other cars as well: the Land Rover Defender 90 will be sharing box art space with the McLaren Senna, with other United Kingdom marques such as Ariel, Aston Martin, Austin, Jaguar and MG being represented in Forza Horizon 4's announcement trailer. The company planned to release the system as an always-connected device that would have special features for sharing digital games. Those events began Saturday with the kickoff of Electronic Arts' (EA) EA Play fan fest in Hollywood. The pre-order bonus only works on standard versions of the game, bringing the prices down to $47.99 from the normal $60.

Are you excited for Halo: Infinite?

Microsoft set out to make a statement at this year's E3: the games are back. By entering into a letter of intent to acquire Undead Labs, Microsoft is signaling its commitment to growing the franchise and taking the zombie survival-fantasy genre to newheights. But there was also a hint as to what comes next.

"We embarked on a quest to find creative teams that have the mastery of our art", Spencer said.


In 2017, Playground Games said it was creating a new studio to focus on non-racing open-world video games.

This included a brand-new studio, The Initiative, and the acquisition of some truly fantastic studios already doing great work.

This isn't the first time that Spencer has spoken of such development.

Given AMD now has a strong hold on the console market it's very likely the new Xbox consoles will be powered by enhanced Radeon graphics beyond Vega.

Microsoft also revealed several new Gears of War games.
