Sony's PlayStation 4 has overshadowed the Xbox for the majority of this console generation, but at E3, Microsoft has come out swinging.

Although none of the Japanese developed games appear to be Xbox exclusive - the developers, it seems, not yet quite that confident - it's a hugely promising sign that Microsoft has been able to win them back. Microsoft made the announcement during today during a press briefing ahead of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles today.

Amid all of their game announcements, Microsoft let out some interesting tidbits about the future of Xbox during their E3 conference - and hinted at the possibility of multiple consoles being worked on. CD Projekt Red, creators of GoG and the Witcher games, showed off a new trailer for Cyberpunk 2077.

Was the company behind the most powerful console now on the market really underplaying hardware?

It will take place after the events of Halo 5 but feel new to new players. Aged developer From Software, famous in recent years for its work on the Souls series, announced Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. It bodes well not just for the sheer volume of content available to Xbox players, but to the diversity of that content.

In the trailer , a character is being attacked by enemy ships, so she calls for help, catching the attention of one Fox McCloud. The game will feature split-screen multiplayer for up to two players and seven "massive unique planets" to explore.

"We still have a long way to go until we ship the game", Chris Lee, studio head at developer 343 Studios, wrote in a blog post after the game trailer aired.

"The world of gaming is on a historic growth path", Spencer said at an Xbox media event ahead of the formal start of the Electronic Entertainment Expo here this week.

This isn't the first time that Spencer has spoken of such development. Beyond that, the company launched a new studio headed by Darrell Gallagher, who formerly headed the studio behind the relaunch of Tomb Raider.

Given AMD now has a strong hold on the console market it's very likely the new Xbox consoles will be powered by enhanced Radeon graphics beyond Vega.

Matt Booty, corporate vice president of Microsoft Studios, said: "The original games we create at Microsoft Studios are some of our biggest assets".
