It’s all about the games for Microsoft at E3.

Microsoft focused exclusively on hyping titles coming to its Xbox One and Xbox 360 consoles during its presentation Monday ahead of the Electronic Entertainment Expo, the video-game industry’s annual trade show.

The new Xbox One games showcased included a fresh instalment of the open-world romp Crackdown, a reboot of the Xbox action game Phantom Dust, the original dragon adventure Scalebound from developer Platinum Games, a sequel to the 2013 Tomb Raider reboot titled Rise of the Tomb Raider and a Halo collection that will bring four prior instalments of the sci-fi shooter to Microsoft’s latest console.
