I know the games that are coming for the original Xbox but I don't think we've announced them all.

Cross-play between PlayStation 4 and Xbox One continues to be a sore subject for both companies, it seems like.

Customers interested in previewing the Xbox One X can now do so at select Microsoft retail locations.

"We talk to Sony all the time".

Xbox One S Minecraft Complete Adventure Bundle featuring an Xbox One S with a 500GB hard drive, Xbox Wireless Controller, full-game download codes of Minecraft and "Minecraft: Story Mode Season 1 - The Complete Adventure" (Episodes 1-8), full add-on download code of Minecraft Explorer's pack, 3 months of Xbox Live Gold and 1 month of Xbox Game Pass. "They should talk about what their view is..."

Sony's reasoning on not allowing cross-play is that the company is only looking out for the safety of its users, and fears what could happen over networks they have no control over.

There is also a concern among gamers that Microsoft might have pushed the innovation too far with the Xbox One X. The effect would mean many gamers will feel left out and that the new machine will gain more attention from the company.

Speaking generally about the appeal of cross-play, Spencer said it allows the multiplayer environments for games to stay rich, because the player pools are larger than they otherwise might be. The company assures the public that pre-orders numbers now surpass those of every Xbox ever sold.

Now, Xbox boss Phil Spencer has provided an update on where things stand with Sony.

In fact, allowing cross-play could even be better for developers, as they wouldn't have to create multiple online environments. Gamers were just required to purchase a digital copy of the game on any of the supported platforms, which then enables them to download a second copy on the other system.

Full-game download code of Rocket League - Choose from a variety of high-flying vehicles equipped with huge rocket boosters to score wonderful aerial goals and pull off incredible, game-changing saves, take on the single-player challenge in Season Mode or join in 8-player online competition and 4-player split-screen action.
