Cloud looming on the horizon in changing video game world

Visitors play the Forza Horizon 4 video game during the Xbox event on June 10

Anyway, we won't have any confirm soon, as Microsoft doesn't provide Xbox One sales data anymore and won't change this approach in the future. During its E3 press conference, Phil Spencer revealed Microsoft had acquired big studios such as Playground Games and Ninja Theory, and a completely new studio called The Initiative has also been opened with Crystal Dynamics veteran Darrell Gallagher at the helm. This might be referring to other devices that support the next-gen console. But Microsoft's strength in cloud computing should put it in a good position. The first "Halo" game was released in 2001 and was a key reason for the success of the original Xbox.

Microsoft announced plenty of Xbox One games during its recent E3 press conference, includingHalo Infinite and Gears 5, but head of Xbox Phil Spencer also revealed that system architects are now working on the next-generation of Xbox systems.

"In this context, Microsoft's cloud division gives the company a natural advantage when trying to build a profitable business".

The release date of 2020 for the new Xbox console may appear to be too close to the 2017 launch of the Xbox One X. However, considering the current status of the Xbox in the video game industry, a 2020 launch may be necessary for Microsoft to keep pace with its rivals.

If Microsoft were to beat Sony to the market with a new console, however, it would have the chance to get a head start in the console race and release more technically impressive games.

Trump trade adviser apologises for insulting Trudeau
Trump went on to say that the U.S. gets "unfairly clobbered" on trade despite "protecting Europe at great financial loss". The President of the United States, Donald Trump , has threatened to impose a tax on imported vehicles.

Video game industry revenue worldwide tallied about $116 billion past year, according to the ESA.

Console video game titan Bethesda is unabashedly bridging the divide between console and mobile play with versions of blockbusters Fallout and Elder Scrolls for play on smartphones or tablets. Spencer didn't spill any specific details, mind.

On Sunday at E3, the biggest gaming event of the year, the USA technology giant showcased 52 games, 18 of which will launch as exclusives, meaning they will not be available on rival consoles.

Super-fast Internet service is seen as key to rich, seamless game play.
