This week we delayed recording the show until after Microsoft’s big Xbox E3 Media Briefing was held yesterday afternoon. So this show has a lot of stuff related to those announcements from Los Angeles, That gets us caught up with the new game pass options for both console and PC, upcoming games, hardware, and streaming technology plus lots of other gaming related items such as project Scarlett and Project xCloud. Of course, I still catch you up on the latest for Windows Insiders and where we stand with the continued development of the 20H1 feature update for next year and the wait for the first bits of 19H2 for this fall.
