That date may seem relatively close considering that the Xbox One X launched previous year but Microsoft is aggressively moving ahead with hardware in the console space to shake up the industry.

Microsoft was the first of the major game industry companies to present at E3 2018, and how wonderful it was.

The head of Xbox on Sunday said Microsoft is hard at work on a next-generation console along with a cloud service that would let players stream games to any device. Naturally, as he was saying this, the image that appeared on the big screen was a phone.

Of course, Microsoft had to announce a new Gears of War game. If so, that would mean the Xbox's next generation would involve multiple different hardware creations or available devices in 2020, not just one Xbox console alone.

Dos Anjos barely catches Covington with a knee strike before getting taken down, Dos Anjos gets up and separates from Covington. That fight nearly certainly would have been against Rafael dos Anjos for the interim welterweight championship.

Sony has unveiled its PlayStation games line-up to challenge rival Microsoft and the Xbox, including the first in-game footage of the next title in the critically acclaimed Last Of Us series. The service isn't flawless, however - for one, a number of gamers to this day complain about latency issues, and the games library sure could be better.

There was really big stuff this year, like The Elder Scrolls 6 or the new Halo Infinite, but even those suggest a new gaming future is close, with little more than logos and promises.

One of the most successful racing games on Xbox is coming back with a brand new sequel, and this time it's letting you race all around Great Britain. Sony's focus on exclusives was a huge feather in its cap, and seeing long demos of games like Ghost of Tsushima and Control reinforced the PlayStation manufacturer's focus on exclusives.

Similarly, if Sony and Microsoft stick with an AMD GPU, they should be able to look forward to relatively straightforward ports as well. While we haven't heard any rumors of a mobile Xbox product, ever, it's simply impossible that Microsoft hasn't noticed Nintendo's handheld, which is busy setting sales records and skyrocketing up the charts. Comment below so we will know your thoughts! If this happens, Microsoft will nearly certainly debut a new console within a year of Sony's reveal. "At Microsoft, we are committed to empowering gamers to play the games they want, with the people they want, where they want".
