While the total amount of new games announced by Xbox was itself impressive though, you could argue that anyone can have a good year. After the show we had the chance to sit down with Microsoft's Chief Marketing Officer for gaming, Mike Nichols, to find out what the future might look like for Xbox and he told us consoles will still be very much a part of it.

The Xbox One X is hailed by Microsoft as the "world's most powerful console; the device is faster and has more computing power than its predecessors, the original Xbox One and newer Xbox One S. It competes with Sony's Playstation 4 Pro". Whether this is the sixth main series Halo game or an offshoot is yet to be known.
