Microsoft beat Sony to revealing the name and final design of its console, plus it showcased a number of third-party titles coming to the Series X. Microsoft’s first-party games, however, will be the Xbox Series X’s anchor.

The countdown to the launch of the Xbox Series X is almost over. Microsoft will soon send its legion of diehard fans into the next-generation of gaming with souped-up new hardware and a roster of exclusive titles that will appeal to veteran gamers and newcomers alike.
