During its E3 2017 event, Microsoft showcased 30 new games, many of which will be available for free on its Game Pass.
One of the games that Microsoft showcased at E3 was Halo Infinite, which was delayed due to the outbreak of the coronavirus. Two games, Starfield and Redfall, will launch on the Xbox One and PC next year.
Through the end of the year, Xbox Game Pass will be getting back-to-back monthly releases, including Halo Infinite and Five More titles from Xbox Game Studios.
According to gaming analytics firm Newzoo, the global games market will reach US$175.8 billion in 2021, with a total of around 2.9 billion players. For a $9.99 monthly charge Game Pass provides hundreds of games that are playable on Xbox consoles, Android devices and PCs.
“What makes us different from a service like Netflix is that we give players both options, a subscription package and also a full retail store,” said Phil Spencer, head of Xbox.
Competitive Gaming Environment
Between the hype of the Xbox Series X and the Nintendo Switch Pro, it has been easy to ignore the low-key battles that are happening simultaneously.
Microsoft has finally announced that it is working on an app for Xbox TV, which will allow players to stream games to their TV without the need for an Xbox console.
For anyone whos sick of waiting for the latest consoles every six to seven years, this is a dream come true. Just need a good internet connection and an Xbox controller.
It is clear from the movement of travel that cloud gaming is an unbeatable experience.
