Aren't XBox announcements basically just "we're still here! Look at all the Halo and Forza we have!" these days?

Pretty much, but with some Gears of War thrown in for good measure :P

Or is it just Gears these days?

There'll no doubt be some Crackdown 3 stuff, Game Pass and more new content for released games. They have promised a couple of big surprises though. So Halo Immortal for mobile probably.

Oh and Humble tweeted a winky face when retweeting the XO announcement so likely something due there too...

Microsoft are jacking UP the Gold price here in good old Blighty...

To ensure gamers have consistent pricing for Xbox Live Gold across Europe we are making changes to UK pricing from May 8th. Prices will rise by £1 a month for our monthly subscriptions, £3 for our quarterly subscriptions and by £10 a year for an annual membership. This new pricing is aligned to the changes we made in the region in 2016 as we strive to offer our members premium gaming and entertainment services at a fair price. We have notified members whose accounts are on recurring billing in the UK so they are aware well in advance
