E3 2018: 10 Best Things At Microsoft's Conference

The Xbox One X

Forza Horizon 4 has been officially announced by Microsoft Studios, ahead of the title's official release on 2nd October 2018.

"Halo Infinite will feature [a] new art style that draws significant inspiration from the most iconic and historic parts of the Halo franchise and your feedback, all while modernising and taking advantage of the full power of the Xbox One family", 343 wrote. The industry is headed in an exciting direction, and we see an opportunity to create awesome new game experiences of the future. If you've been constantly putting off an XBox One purchase, this could be the game to finally break you.

The Xbox event was packed with cinematic snippets or play of 52 games, including new instalments to blockbuster franchises such as "Fallout" and "Halo". Microsoft says that you will, on average, be able to jump into your new game twice as fast as you did previously on the same net connection. It makes us wonder how the next Xbox could pan out and if frame rate becomes a bigger priority for developers and console makers going forward.

What exactly the announcements will entail is unknown, but we won't have too much longer to wait, as the next episode of Inside Xbox will be airing today, June 11th, 2018 at 3pm PT/6pm ET.

Wilder, Joshua agree to fight deal
The ball is in their court. 'The $50M offer for Joshua to fight me next in the U.S.is still available to him if he wants it. Joshua, 28, won his first world title in 2016 and has made five defenses, taking his record to 21-0 with 20 knockouts.

Over the last six years, Playground Games has been helping to keep Microsoft's first-party efforts afloat with the Forza Horizon series. Strap in and get ready, the fun starts at 1 p.m.

"The original games we create at Microsoft Studios are some of our biggest assets", said Matt Booty, corporate vice president of Microsoft Studios. Where Netflix has banner franchises like "House of Cards" and "Stranger Things", Microsoft has "Halo" and "Gears of War", both published by the tech behemoth itself.

Also of note was Microsoft's pledge to make games ready to play far quicker with Fast Start, which actually seems to align with the console's initial plans for nearly immediate play.

We are still to be convinced that cloud game streaming is a viable service, considering many, such as OnLive, have fallen by the wayside in recent years.
