Microsoft is getting ready for the next Xbox vs. PlayStation console war !

Previously in E3 2013, Microsoft Xbox One is a big disaster allowing PlayStation 4 to rule the E3, thus making more sales compared to Xbox, which was the reported inaccurate by Microsoft Spokesperson. Also, Microsoft stopped giving sales reports in 2014.

But now, Microsoft. has made a great comeback in E3 Press Conference 2018, making some shocking announcements this year. 50 games 18 exclusives and 15 world premieres are what was showcased and also confirming the development of next Xbox.

As previously it faced lack of exclusive games. So, this time they have taken a very smart step by buying other game studios. It seems like their strategy is simple, ” If you can’t beat them, then buy them.”

Thus offering more exclusive games in future. This move may help prevent their customers from shifting to PlayStation. As PlayStation has amazing exclusives like God Of War, Detroit, Horizon, Uncharted and now the Spider-Man, Death Stranding, The Last of Us 2.
