The upcoming E3 event from next month is expected to be the place where Microsoft will launch a series of new devices. So far, Microsoft said absolutely nothing about these devices, but it’s not the first time the company is being so secretive about its upcoming products.

The first device to be revealed should be a new Xbox One Slim, that will likely come with a 1TB or more hard drive with additional USB ports too. Apparently, work began in 2014, a year after the original Xbox One was launched. It’s been two years already since the Xbox One was rolled out, and it’s high time Microsoft brought a new Xbox in the spotlight.

The second device to be launched at E3 is expected to be a new Xbox One controller. Its specs are a total mystery, yet rumors suggest it is similar to the current controllers in design and may have a different color. Also, it might be equipped with built-in batteries, a feature many fans have been requesting.

The third device expected to be launched at E3 is Microsoft’s very first Xbox TV. Brad Sams, the representative of a company close to Microsoft suggested that at least two streaming device will be revealed at E3. He previously reported on the Elite Xbox controller before it was launched, therefore he is a reliable source.

Sams thinks the Xbox TV will support advanced functionalities, which means it could access UWP apps and games from the Microsoft Store. The device could also be used to stream Xbox One games from the console to a TV screen. When it comes to playing high-resource demanding games, it is unlikely that the Xbox TV be up to the task.

Streaming is gonna be the big thing, getting into the living room is gonna be the big thing.

You can watch Sam’s online podcast on Youtube if you want to know more.
