LOS ANGELES (AP) — It's all about the games for Microsoft at E3.

Microsoft focused exclusively on hyping titles coming to its Xbox One and Xbox 360 consoles during its presentation Monday ahead of the Electronic Entertainment Expo, the video-game industry's annual trade show.

The new Xbox One games showcased included a fresh installment of the open-world romp "Crackdown," a reboot of the Xbox action game "Phantom Dust," the original dragon adventure "Scalebound" from developer Platinum Games, a sequel to the 2013 "Tomb Raider" reboot titled "Rise of the Tomb Raider" and a "Halo" collection that will bring four prior installments of the sci-fi shooter to Microsoft's latest console.

The announcements were made Monday morning during a 90-mintue presentation at the University of Southern California's Galen Center.
