Keanu Reeves drops in on Xbox E3 event

Keanu Reeves made a surprise appearance at Microsoft's E3 Xbox press conference to reveal the launch date of one of the most anticipated video games. Microsoft also announced that it has launched Xbox Game Pass PC - a subscription service that will allow console titles to be download and played on Windows 10 computers. It will charge $9.99 a month to be a member, and users can combine it with an Xbox Live Gold pass - which lets games be played on the console - for $14.99. The firm is also planning to launch a separate service - xCloud - which will stream Xbox One games from either the firm's data centres or users' own consoles - in October. "The fact everyone is moving into the streaming space is an indication that everyone is on the right track to where the gaming space is moving to," Russ Frushtick, co-founder of games news site Polygon told the BBC. "The benefit for Microsoft is a subscription model. You can pay and then you can stream it to a [low-spec] laptop."
