After unveiling everything from a surprise George R.R. Martin-designed video game to literally Keanu Reeves, Microsoft raised the stakes on their annual E3 press conference by formally announcing the first details of Project Scarlett, the codename given to the next-gen Xbox console.

The big piece of information we received about the new Halo title is the release window being set for Holiday 2020.

EA revealed the first look at gameplay from the upcoming Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order at their EA Play 2019 event today. Fans first got a look at the reveal trailer at Star Wars Celebration 2019 but there wasn't any gameplay revealed there.

We can finally put an end to the copious speculation surrounding Cyberpunk 2077's release date, as it has finally been confirmed that it'll launch on April 16 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Microsoft has officially unveiled its next-generation console, dubbed Project Scarlett, which will replace the Xbox One family in late 2020.

Trump Announces US and Mexico Reach Deal on Migration, Calls Off Tariffs
But Mexico has already so expanded its deportations of asylum seekers, it is unclear whether it has the resources to do much more. USA officials pressed Mexico to change its asylum policy by entering into a "safe third country" agreement with the US.

Another interesting news nugget from Microsoft's E3 presentation is that it has acquired legendary game development studio Double Fine Productions. The only issue is that you can only redeem up to 36 months of Game Pass Ultimate by conversion. Like most reasonable people, I kept my expectations in check regarding all three of these subjects, but I was still taken aback at how little Microsoft had to say about any of them. During its E3 2019 press conference, Xbox announced several more big-ticket titles, such as Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Metro: Exodus, Forza Horizon 4, Ark: Survival Evolved and Sea of Thieves: Anniversary Edition. It sounds like it'll be an APU design again, much like the Xbox One, which used much older hardware from AMD.

The trailer paints a bleak picture of a universe post-Guardians where humanity, without its beacon of hope, has fallen and lost. As always though, we'll be sure to bring you more information on Microsoft's next-gen games console as and when we get it. The news underscored Microsoft's commitment to a new generation of hardware even as it introduces new ways for consumers to stream games onto multiple devices.

Fielding at deep backward square, Cottrell hared around the boundary as Smith's sweetly hit shot looked headed for six runs. But that's how cricket plays and we know Australia are a quality side.

Here's the archived video of Microsoft's full E3 briefing. However, a new rumor suggests that Sony's PS5 might already have Microsoft's Project Scarlett beat in one key area: power. This conversion rate also applies to any other codes you redeem after joining Ultimate, which could prove beneficial if you can get your hands on some cheap codes for Xbox Live Gold.
