Exciting news coming at E3
This year’s E3 conference is expected to bring us lots of exciting news on the Xbox front, including not only, which are features that will be introduced by the Anniversary Update, but also new devices.
For example, it’s believed that Microsoft would take the wraps off a slimmer Xbox One that could help the company cope with the growing competition from Sony’s PlayStation. It could finally bring 4K support and other features, all of which will be detailed by Xbox executives at the show.
Some other devices are also likely to see daylight, including a streaming dongle that would position Microsoft as a more powerful rival to Google’s Chromecast. Certainly, all improvements that will be included in the Anniversary Update due this summer will also be presented, especially because Microsoft is making changes that will unify platforms and bring the Xbox closer to PCs and generate new gaming opportunities.
