As expected, Microsoft’s keynote during this year’s E3 showcased new titles and an even better Xbox One. Check out some of the top games (and some other awesome stuff) Microsoft has announced.

Xbox One S

As previously leaked, the Xbox One S will be 40 percent smaller than the original Xbox One, and will now support 4K Blu-ray playback and HDR gaming along with a redesigned controller and an internal power brick.

 Project Scorpio

Probably the highlight of Microsoft’s keynote is a new Xbox One dubbed as Project Scorpio, which Microsoft claims will be the ‘most powerful console ever’. Still in development, Project Scorpio can run at 6 teraflops and will have support for 4K 60 fps gaming and of course, VR. Project Scorpio is scheduled to be released by the 2017 holiday season (I know it’s a long time).

Design your own Xbox One controller

Tired of the usual Xbox One controller colors? Then you can now design your own thanks to the Xbox Design Lab. You pay $20 extra for it, but hey nothing’s better than a personalized controller.

Xbox Play Anywhere

Also announced is Xbox Play Anywhere which will let you own a game you’ve purchased on the Xbox One and play it on a compatible Windows 10 PC without any extra charges.


Forza Horizon 3

The sequel to the 2014 game will feature the biggest open world created by the developers. The new setting will be down under in Australia, and will add new features like 4-player co-op campaigns.

Dead Rising 4

Capcom brings back this new installment that promises to be as fun as more bloody than its predecessor.

Halo Wars 2

Even if the story starts from the end of Halo 5, Halo Wars 2 will feature a strategy-based gameplay along with competitive multiplayer support.
