Microsoft has announced its plans for Xbox for this year’s E3 on Xbox News Wire. Its press conference will take place on Monday, June 15 at 9.30am, and can be streamed live from the website, through the Live Events Player, on Windows Phones, and on Xbox 360 or Xbox One consoles. The conference will also be aired in the US and Canada on Spike TV on a program titled “Xbox: Game On.” The conference will include details of previously-announced games as well as trailers for unannounced titles.

Microsoft is also bringing back Xbox Daily: LIVE @ E3, a daily live show that will cover all the Xbox-related events at E3. It will be hosted by Larry Hryb and Graeme Boyd, and will include “breaking news, exclusive announcements, trailer reveals, game demos, and interviews with game creators.” Guest stars on the show will include head of Xbox Phil Spencer as well as guests from 343 Industries, Turn 10 Studios, Crystal Dynamics, and more. It will air on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 4-5:00pm and can be streamed in all the same ways as the press conference.

E3 won’t be the only event this year full of announcements from Xbox. “This year, we have an amazing games lineup to share (who knew it’d be so hard to pack all of our exclusive E3 premieres into an hour and a half?), so we’re saving a lot of exciting reveals for gamescom in August. It’s already shaping up to be a great year.”

The final icing on Xbox’s E3 cake is a giveaway of tickets that will allow fans to see all the Xbox events at the expo. There will be 500 tickets given away, and the details can be found on the Xbox site. The lucky fans will be given entry to the Xbox press conference, an exclusive FanFest party where fans will get to play the “best exclusives and biggest blockbuster games this holiday and beyond”, VIP access to e-sports events, and meet-and-greets with industry leaders. Xbox has also promised there will be more goodies to come with future announcements.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Raiden, the famous shmup series, will come back as a twin-stick shooter on PS5, PS4, and PC

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Bandai Namco and Nike designed Tekken 8 sneakers with tag-team designs

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.
