Xbox Series X – All the Games – Part 2
Xbox Games LineUp
As part of the Microsoft’s big Xbox Series X presentation on the 7th of May, a number of games was showcased. We are going to examine them one by one with an introduction to gameplay and trailers.
First, however, few short considerations on the state of the Console War between Microsoft and Sony. At present, from the communication point of view, we believe Microsoft is a cut above Sony. To date, Microsoft has already unveiled its console, controller, technical specifications and game line up at launch. As for Playstation 5, we know Logo and Controller (together with a series of technical information provided by the tedious Mark Cerny that’s actually more dedicated to developers than to players).
To conclude this brief introduction and move on immediately to the most important thing that you have all been waiting for, the Games, two last considerations.
The first concerns the fact that although we are convinced that Microsoft is doing much better in the advertising campaign for the Xbox Series X, we are equally convinced that as soon as Sony decides to take the field seriously, we will see some good things and the war between consoles will officially start.
The second concerns, perhaps, one of the most interesting news leaked from the presentation of the Xbox games. Thanks to Smart Delivery, according to Damon Baker of the Xbox team, it will be enough to buy the games only once to be able to use them on all current and future gaming platforms. Yet another thrust to which Sony will have to respond and fight back.
Now, let’s examine the Xbox Series X line up. Let’s go!
