    Microsoft during its E3 2019 press conference announced its next generation Xbox, called Project Scarlett, will launch in holiday 2020 alongside Halo: Infinite.

    Head of Xbox Phil Spencer during an E3 live stream hosted by Mixer discussed the upcoming console. Spencer and the company has a price in mind for the console, but is watching the cost of the components before announcing how much the console will cost at launch.

    "The price will be important," said Spencer. "Clearly price is one of these things people want to know, and as we’re kind of watching the cost of the components that are coming in, things like tearups and other things, trying to figure out what that price is going to be next year… We have a design price in mind, and I think we’re going to hit that, but we want to make sure that everything comes in right, so that’s the price that we hit. So, we’ll get the price out as soon as we can, so that people can make those decisions."

    Spencer also teased he knows what Project Scarlett is going to look like and even the name of the console.

    "I know what it’s going to look like. I think it’s a cool looking 'new' thing, which will be interesting, but we don’t have the final ID [Industrial Design] done, so it’s not like we’re going to put out a half-done ID and say 'this is kind of what it’ll look like.' We’ll wait on that, because that’s not really what’s going to determine purchase decisions. Even the name. I hope somebody is not making their mind or decision on this product based on what it’s named."

    Thanks Twinfinite.

    Microsoft has been pushing its Xbox Game Pass service with making new first-party titles on the subscription service day of launch and it appears all the new studio acquisitions over the last couple of years is to support the service. 

    Xbox Game Studios head Matt Booty speaking with GameSpot was asked if the company would consider releasing multiplatform games if approached by one of its first-party studios. 

    "I think we would first of all look at everything on a case by case basis," said Booty in response to the question. "It is, to be clear, the goal with these studios is to provide content for game pass and to provide support for all the new things that we talked about today. Everything from Mixer to Xbox live gold to Xbox... we've got the Game Pass Ultimate with streaming and everything.

    "Our job as first-party is really to be there first with all of that. At the same time we have a great relationship with Nintendo, a great relationship with Sony, and if it made sense I don't want to rule that out but to be clear, our main mission is going to support game pass."

    Bethesda Softworks at E3 2019 did not showcase its upcoming science fiction RPG, Starfield. However, game director Todd Howard during an E3 Coliseum panel with host Geoff Keighley and Tesla's Elon Musk did provide a little bit of information on the game.

    “What I can say is, how we approach it so it feels… it’s a game, but it still has authenticity to ‘okay, this could happen,'” said Howard. “Like, what kind of fuel do the ships use? We’re using Helium-3, which we can which we can debate whether that’s a good power source for spaceships. Or how do the physics work in space, and gravity, and those kind of things.

    View the panel below:

    “And that’s where you get into- we have to gamify it some, so that it’s not as punishing as actual space travel. But it still feels like travelling in space in our game is still like flight in the forties, it’s dangerous. It’s still dangerous to go and explore, even though lots of people do it.”

    There is currently no release date or platforms for Starfield

    Thanks GamingBolt.

    Welcome to the fifth annual "Top 10 Gameplay Trailers of E3."

    Nintendo and Square Enix notwithstanding, this was an E3 to forget, with Sony skipping the ceremony altogether and Microsoft failing to capitalize on its rival's absence. Furthermore, there was a scarcity of great gameplay trailers, with many publishers opting for flashy cinematic previews. Still, I was able to assemble a list of ten videos that debuted this E3, featuring games that look great, good, or at the very least promising. 

    Here's last year's list, for reference. Please enjoy!

     

    #10
    STAR WARS Jedi: Fallen Order

    The EA logo should scare you, but the Respawn insignia should put your mind at ease (at least somewhat). Developer of Titanfall and Apex Legends, Respawn is now trying its hand at a cinematic third-person action game. With shades of The Force Unleashed, Uncharted, and thanks to some wall-running footage, Titanfall itself, Jedi: Fallen Order shows a lot of potential.

     

    #9
    Trials of Mana

    Trials of Mana already looks superior to the Secret of Mana remake from 2018. A HD remake of Seiken Densetsu 3, Trials of Mana is built on Unreal Engine 4—and it looks fantastic. Featuring multiple protagonists, action-RPG combat, and a rich fantasy world, this remake looks to be a winner.

     

    #8
    Animal Crossing: New Horizons

    Is there a more serene, relaxing, diversionary game series than Animal Crossing? The newest installment in the franchise, New Horizons, by all accounts will continue the soothing life simulation formula, this time on a mostly-deserted island. Build, grow, fish, shop, make friends, and play—all at your leisure—in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. New features include couch co-op and a more refined character editor.

     

    #7
    Minecraft Dungeons

    The most unanticipated entry on this list might just be Minecraft Dungeons, a cross between Minecraft and Diablo that looks unexpectedly great. It appears to be a more accessible, family-friendly version of the beloved dungeon-crawler, with crunchy combat, lots of loot, and support for four-player multiplayer.

     

    #6
    Luigi's Mansion 3

    With new moves like Slam, Suction Shot, and Burst, and a nice collection of solo, co-op, and competitive modes, Luigi's Mansion 3 appears to be the complete package. The most surprising addition to the series has to be Gooigi, a green, gooey doppleganger of Luigi that can pass through narrow bars and over spikes. 

     

    #5
    Astral Chain

    The Switch exclusive Astral Chain has been one of the sexier Nintendo titles since it arrived on the scene back in February. The latest gameplay trailer should only make salivating fans more eager to try it, thanks to a glimpse into the game's over-the-top action, epic boss battles, and a neat capture mechanic that allows players to use enemy abilities to destroy other extra-dimensional baddies. Astral Chain will arrive August 30.

     

    #4
    Final Fantasy VII Remake

    For a long time, many questions have surrounded Final Fantasy VII Remake—about its episodic release cadence, its gameplay differences from the original, and whether it would be any good. Thanks to E3 2019, the last question is a little clearer: this remake, despite its deviation from the seminal 1997 RPG, looks pretty darn great. The battle system, apparently a hybrid of real-time and strategic action, looks especially good. The game's staggered release rhythm is still a red flag, but in terms of gameplay, Final Fantasy VII deserves a place on this list.

     

    #3
    Valfaris

    Valfaris looks like the child of Contra and Metroid, conceived to Master of Puppets by Metallica. It's probably the wildest, most invigorating trailer of all of E3, with its metal guitar riffs, righteous pixel art, and some spectacular run-and-gun action. From the team behind Slain: Back from Hell, Valfaris is definitely one to watch.

     

    #2
    The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening

    Link's Awakening has always been a quirky installment in the evergreen Zelda series, and based on the trailer above the remake will capture the same eccentricities. Open-air exploration, close-quarters combat, and atypical 2D platforming sections all look great, but it's the reveal of a brand new dungeon editor that earns this trailer its high spot.

     

    #1
    DOOM Eternal

    Id Software can do little wrong lately. The DOOM reboot in 2016 enjoyed fast and violent action and this year's RAGE 2, despite some open-world pitfalls, saw some of the snappiest, most satisfying moment-to-moment gunplay in a long time. This trend appears to continue with DOOM Eternal, which builds on its predecessor's forward-momentum combat. With more demon types, crazier weapons, and new acrobatic maneuvers, it might just be a new classic.

     

    Thank you for checking out my top 10 list. Please sound off in the comments section with your favorite gameplay trailers from this year's E3!
