After a somber start to the conference with Microsoft acknowledging the victims in Orlando with a moment of silence. They kicked things off by announcing the Xbox One S. A device that is 40% smaller than the original, includes High Dynamic Range technology for games and 4K media playback. Microsoft also announced “Play Anywhere” whereupon buying a title digitally nets you the copy for both Xbox One and Windows 10 on select titles. There weren’t many surprises as many things had been leaked in the previous weeks. “Project Scorpio” Microsoft’s answer to fans who complained the Xbox One was under-powered. The usual suspects were on display with “Gears of War 4“, “Halo Wars 2” and it’s open beta starting today, Monday June 13th and lasting till the 20th. Dead Rising 4 was announced with the return of Frank West. “Forza Horizon 3” was announced, “Recore” had a quick showing, “Scalebound” has a 4 person demo and “Sea of Thieves” had a pre-recorded demo showing off some of the gameplay. Microsoft also introudeced “Xbox Design Lab” where fans can create their own unique Xbox One controller for purchase. Some welcome features like “Clubs” and “Looking for Group” have been added to Xbox Live. Overall it was a solid though not surprising showing from Microsoft. We’re excited to see what PlayStation has in store later tonight.
