I watched it..... Booooooring.

There were some interesting announcements..... PUBG coming to Game Pass.... Crackdown 3 FINALLY coming to Xbox in Feb 2019.

I do find it interesting Microsoft is getting Cozy with more Japanese dev companies, perhaps it's a market they feel they need to have a stronger presence in?

Your right Orbius, but the reality is ms/xbox know that they will never conquer Japan because the Japanese prefer home grown products i.e Sony & Nintendo.

The problem is also some western gamers like myself, like obscure Japanese games, that ms/xbox may or maynot be worth ms/xbox spending their ressources on, to bring them over to the west on xbox.   

All microsoft can do is to try and bring the popular mainstream Japanese franchise like final fantasy, kingdom hearts, street fighter to xbox in hope that they can challenged playstation in the west in the gen 9 wars.
