Here are some of the highlights:
Also announced for the Xbox One was Forza Motorsport 5, which Microsoft said will use the cloud to power the other racers. You'll have a "drivatar" that drives for you, which will learn to re-create your speed and style.
While you're offline, your drivatar will race other drivers, based on your skill level. When you log in again, you earn credits for your drivatar's work.
Xbox 360 announcements
Earlier in the event, Microsoft said the games Splinter Cell Blacklist, Batman Arkham Origins, Grand Theft Auto V, World of Tanks, and more will come to the aging Xbox 360, which is being refreshed.
Microsoft also will introduce a reward of sorts for Xbox Live subscribers: starting July 1st until the launch of the Xbox One, anyone with an Xbox Live Gold membership will be able to download two classic Xbox 360 games, free of charge.
