And that is seriously about it.  Everything else they have can be bought on other systems or the PC.

Just an update to everyone, Microsoft's Xbox One Is Selling So Poorly Retailers are giving them less floor space and not even ordering them.  Since 2013, the Xbox One has sold only 10 million consoles.  The Playstation 4 since 2013 has sold 53 million consoles.

Shocking isn't it.  ;)  Still their best games are the Forza series... and they are going to lose that as they start moving those games to PC too, as they should.  Froza is too good to be console exclusive to a system that isn't popular anymore.

Forza Horizon 4 has been a hit.  I've wanted to play it, but I would have to get it with the PC.

Big news from today at E3 in Los Angeles.

Microsoft Reveals Project Scarlett, It's Next Console With Cloud Gaming Capabilities.

The next console war has officially kicked off. Microsoft announced its new Xbox console at its E3 briefing in Los Angeles Sunday. The new console, named Project Scarlett, will launch for the holiday season of 2020.

While many expected Microsoft would provide a great deal of information on its cloud gaming efforts, it did emphasize that Project Scarlett would be streaming-capable. No information on a launch date or pricing was made, however.

So far, it’s the only console maker with concrete plans to bring cloud gaming to the public.

However, it still has Google to contend with. On Thursday, the tech giant provided additional details on Stadia, its upcoming cloud gaming venture. Stadia is set to launch in November.

In terms of console competition, the field remains quiet. Nintendo previously said it did not plan to announce any updates to its Switch. PlayStation-maker Sony opted to skip E3 entirely. Though it announced some pieces of information and talked up the increased performance of its planned successor the PlayStation 4 just last week, Sony still hasn’t set a launch date.

Microsoft developers touted the new device’s capabilities including playback at 120 frames per second, and a processor that runs four times more powerful than the Xbox One X.

For those less interested in tech specs and more concerned with what exactly you can play with it, Spencer made another announcement that takes the console-maker back to its roots.

Halo Infinite will be released along with the new Xbox for the holiday season, much like when the first Xbox console first came out.

Microsoft also updated fans on its Game Pass feature. The program works similarly to PlayStation’s PlayStation Now service, as they both allow users to play from a library of games without having to buy each title individually.

Xbox’s previously announced the expansion of Game Pass to PCs, but told the L.A. crowd the service would launch in beta today. Game Pass for PC costs $9.99 a month, the same as the console version, but it’s available at a $4.99 beta price currently.

But that wasn’t the only Game Pass news Microsoft had. The company announced details on Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. The Ultimate pack comes with access for Xbox Game Pass on consoles and PC along with Xbox Live Gold, which is needed to play online with others. The upgraded package costs $14.99 a month.

MICROSOFT E3 CONFERENCE HIGHLIGHTS

Microsoft had an excellent E3 conference, which isn't hard to do when there is no one else around to have a conference.  Nonetheless, Microsoft did a great job and catered to gaming fans with the reveal of a new console  as well as Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

Project Scarlet (The new console): Still no commercial name, but a more extensive look than what we've seen so far. It's coming in Holiday 2020, and it's meant to be Xbox's new flagship console. This isn't quite a full reveal, more like the next stage after last year's confirmation that these things were in fact coming. Like Sony, Microsoft is pursuing a slow-ramp up to the actual launch in 2020.
We heard times like 120 FPS, 8K and all those big numbers. Like Sony's new console, one of the major selling points will be an SSD meant to minimize or completely eliminate load times, and anyone that's installed an SSD on a current-generation console can attest to what a major improvement these things can make. The new console will come with full backwards compatibility, all the way back to the original Xbox.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate combines the Xbox Game Pass for console and PC as well as Xbox Live Gold for only $14.99 a month, which is far cheaper than buying then all separately.  Unlimited online gaming for relatively cheap.

Project xCloud is arguably the biggest project in the entire press conference, though we didn't hear too much about it. xCloud is Microsoft's game streaming platform, and it's going into beta now for the people at E3. This still seems like something they're setting the stage for and not being all that explicit about it, but it seems like this fall is when these platforms are going to rumble to life.

As well, a major staple in Microsoft's portfolio was also revealed, Microsoft Flight Simulator is coming back in 2020 allows pilots and players to fly the world in their most detailed landscapes and planes ever.  This is a huge hit with the simulation community.  Since the release of the original MFS, it has been one of the best selling franchises for the Redmond based company.


Microsoft shared more about Halo Infinite.  It will be the next big game in the Halo franchise.

Age of Empires 2 Definitive Edition was unveiled and will be rendered in full 4K with modern updates and a new campaign.

Minecraft Dungeons has been revealed and appears to be a Minecraft based RPG or MMORPG with up to 4 player local players or online co-op.  Looks promising.

Wasteland 3: Another entry into the resurrected Wasteland franchise, this is a post-apocalyptic isometric turn-based squad game with a sense of humor that's just one wacky notch about Fallout.

Microsoft Buys the Doublefine studio: This is a big get for Microsoft: Tim Schafer's Doublefine is a long-standing gaming standby with a long list of games both huge and weird. These days they're probably still best known for Psychonauts, and guess what? That means Psychonauts 2 is on its way as a Microsoft exclusive.

Xbox Elite Controller Series 2: The Xbox Elite Controller is the best in the business, and it's getting a redesign. The company advertizes increased customization, the ability to save three distinct profiles, bluetooth connectivity, adjustable thumbstick tension and more.

If might be because there is no competition this year, but Microsoft blew it out of the ballpark this year.  They seemed really focused on fixing the many mistakes they have made and have directly one-upped and taken aim at Sony with all their announcements.  They revealed tons of great things, lower prices, good services, and many classic games coming back!  I must say I am excited with what Microsoft has announced.  They did superb.

Looks like we are finally getting this topic some attention to move forward.  lol.
