a group of people looking at a laptop: Microsoft Corp. Xbox Event Ahead Of 2018 E3 Electronic Entertainment Expo © Bloomberg Microsoft Corp. Xbox Event Ahead Of 2018 E3 Electronic Entertainment Expo (Bloomberg) -- Xbox previewed a flurry of new titles and deals with studios as the video-gaming division of Microsoft Corp. looks to compete more intensely with Sony Corp.’s PlayStation and a resurgent Nintendo Co.

The new products, announced Sunday at the company’s E3 briefing in Los Angeles, includes Halo Infinite, a sixth version of its popular shooting title; Fallout 76, a prequel of the series made by Bethesda Softworks; and Forza Horizon 4, a racing title from U.K.-based Playground Games.

In all the company showed off 52 games, 15 of which were world premieres, Phil Spencer, the head of the Xbox unit, told the crowd at the Microsoft Theater. Spencer said it was more game previews than the company has ever showed at the event, the industry’s biggest trade show. Xbox also said it’s doubling its number of video-game studios by acquiring Playground, Compulsion Games, Ninja Theory and Undead Labs, and by launching a startup called The Initiative in Santa Monica, California.

Morocco v Iran: Match Preview

  Morocco v Iran: Match Preview Morocco and Iran will meet at the FIFA World Cup for the first time on Friday, as both nations start their journey in Group B. Former Manchester United assistant Carlos Queiroz and ex-Cambridge United boss Herve Renard will try and guide their respective nations out of arguably the toughest group there is, with Portugal and Spain also contesting Group B. Both squads boast an impressive record heading into their opening game at the Krestovsky Stadium in St. Petersburg. The Moroccans were the only team to not concede a single goal in the African third round qualification stage, whilst Iran kept nine clean sheets in a row and conceded just two goals – which came in their final game against Syria. The Iranian faithful will be confident that their nation can bag a few with Alireza Jahanbakhsh going into the finals as the Eredivisie’s top scorer with 21 goals for AZ Alkmaar. Whilst Iran boast the top scorer in the Dutch league, Morocco playmaker Hakim Ziyech contributed the most assists in the Eredivisie with 21 for Ajax. Iran will be without Saeid Ezatolahi who is suspended, and there are fitness doubts surrounding Ashkan Dejagah and Mehdi Taremi. On the other hand, Morocco are hoping Nabil Dirar is able to play, but there are doubts over his fitness after missing Morocco’s warm-up games. Morocco v Iran: Match facts Morocco and Iran have never met at the World Cup before. They’ve faced each other only once, which ended in a draw.

Zola agrees terms to join Chelsea as Sarri's assistant

  Zola agrees terms to join Chelsea as Sarri's assistant Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola has reportedly agreed terms to re-join the club as Maurizio Sarri’s assistant, according to reports in Italy. Corriere della Sera, as cited on Sport Witness, say a deal between Napoli and Chelsea is close, with Zola set to return to London as part of the new look set-up. Zola is said to have agreed terms and will join the club following the World Cup. He is currently with a South African TV channel as part of their coverage. The former Italian forward has always been linked with a return to Chelsea in some capacity after a disappointing managerial career. The two clubs remain in talks over a fee for Sarri, who has reportedly already agreed on terms to replace Antonio Conte this summer. It is believed that Chelsea will pay between £4-£5 million for the manager’s services. The report also claims that the Blues are still working on deals to sign both Raúl Albiol and Elseid Hysaj alongside Sarri this summer.

Xbox has lost ground in the current cycle of video-game consoles to industry leader Sony. At the same time, the big players are focusing less on new hardware and more on software -- video games that can be turned into long-lived franchises with recurring revenue generated by in-game purchases and subscriptions.

Microsoft also announced a $50 price reduction in all its Xbox One consoles. In the past, it’s used the E3 trade show to reveal new video-game hardware, but that wasn’t the case this year. Spencer said the company was working on new console platforms and didn’t elaborate.

Spencer said the company was increasing its investments in existing game franchises and looking to create new ones. With Microsoft’s backing, the new studios, will have the resources to “take bigger risks” and “create bigger worlds,” he said.
