Microsoft acquires Playground Games, Ninja Theory, and more

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

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.

The release of the game was announced at worldwide gaming event E3 in Los Angeles.

Microsoft is working on a game-streaming service that will deliver "console quality gaming on any device". Naturally, as he was saying this, the image that appeared on the big screen was a phone. Better yet, have companies such as Microsoft developed solutions that'll address issues plaguing streaming-based gaming? But it is likely that it will be just like the Xbox One S and the Xbox One X in the sense that it will offer affordable and high-end options, according to Tech Advisor.

Phil Spencer seemingly confirmed that Microsoft is working on more than one Xbox console – or maybe he misspoke. Unless Sony and Microsoft make a sudden pivot to ARM, the PS5 and Xbox Next will both utilize an x86 CPU - and an x86 CPU that would run pre-existing game code extremely well at that.

Xbox showed that they are absolutely not going down without a fight in the war against Playstation, showcasing new versions of their two biggest and most iconic exclusives - Gears of War 5 and Halo: Infinite.

The diverse lineup included games for every type of player, from exclusives like "Forza Horizon 4", "Halo Infinite" and "Gears 5", and independent titles like "Session", "Below", "Ashen" and "Tunic". Yes, "Forza Horizon 4" looks fantastic and will release on October 2.

Similarly, if Sony and Microsoft stick with an AMD GPU, they should be able to look forward to relatively straightforward ports as well. Cancelled games following big promise has happened a few times.

Yes, a new console is in the works, but forget all about that for the time being.

After the acquisitions are complete, Microsoft will have 11 game development studios. Hopefully it doesn't happen again, but while Microsoft Game Studios expanding is good news, it's news that holds potential, rather than actual improvement.

"We are dedicated to perfecting your experience everywhere you want to play - your Xbox, your PC and your phone", he added. The game has been optimized for Xbox One 4K firepower.
