Microsoft's Xbox E3 conference live stream set for 1 pm PDT; Gears of War, Halo 6 and maybe some fighting games en route?

During a meeting at E3 2018 this week, Playground's Ben Penrose spoke about how Forza Horizon 4 offers the "biggest paradigm shift" since the Forza Horizon series began back in 2012. And we also have to take into consideration the "console-quality game streaming network" the company is building. Microsoft's new studio, based in California, is called The Initiative.

"People in certain regions where maybe a console isn't as appropriate, they don't have a television at home, they don't have space in their apartment to kind of set things up the way they want".

In May, EA announced it had acquired the cloud gaming technology assets and personnel of the GameFly service for an undisclosed amount.

To further this cause, Spencer noted Microsoft is also working on a new streaming service for the Xbox that will use Redmond's cloud reach to pipe games to not only Xbox One consoles and Windows 10 PCs but also phones.

Russian Federation should be at G7 meeting - Trump says
British Prime Minister Theresa May , who also attended the G7 summit in Canada, stood with Trudeau on the issue of trade. The now-rejected communique acknowledged the importance of "free, fair and mutually beneficial trade and investment".

At its E3 event, Microsoft shined a spotlight on upcoming Xbox One games from third-party publishers. In the near future are games like Crackdown 3, which launches in February and let's players put on the boots of Terry Crews and rain down pure destruction.

It will be available to view on YouTube, Mixer and Twitch, providing the latest on Microsoft's plans for new games in 2018 and beyond. The game already has over two million players. Seriously, have we ever seen three prettier games in one conference? Also, the company's hardware team "is deep into architecting the next Xbox console", he said.

"The original games we create at Microsoft Studios are some of our biggest assets", said Matt Booty, corporate vice president of Microsoft Studios. 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.

Obviously the major console makers, such as Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo, have to consider the future of gaming and how games are likely to be played. We are thrilled to welcome five new studios into the Microsoft family. They are now known all over the world for their work on the Souls series but with Sekiro, they are taking a completely different approach to an action game.
