Man, I have to get used to using the "Xbox Series X" tag and not "Xbox One" all the time!
A new generation is nearly upon us, but before then, we still need firm dates and prices for the Xbox Series X (I did it) and the PlayStation 5. Sony and Microsoft have been playing chicken for months now, but Microsoft is now ready to strike with some gameplay that isn't behind closed doors.
Rather, the next Inside Xbox stream (which is very much like a Nintendo Direct) on May 7 at 8AM PT will debut public-facing gameplay for Xbox Series X games. Microsoft calls it the "first look" of next-gen gameplay, featuring their global development partners; one of which is Ubisoft, who will be showing Assassin's Creed Valhalla on the system. Cyberpunk 2077 has to make an appearance too, right?
As Xbox Games Marketing boss Aaron Greenberg put it, there will be more "big summer plans" to follow, which have all-but-replaced E3 this year. All of this will be streamed on YouTube on this page. We'll be there!
