Chrome OS might soon run Steam games too

It is increasingly becoming evident that Google is grooming Chrome OS to be something like a dumping ground for anything and everything it can cram into what was originally a glorified Chrome web browser.

Microsoft has a ton of Xbox One demos lined up for Summer Game Fest

With E3 2020 cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Summer Game Fest was created to fill the void. Of course, a digital event like Summer Game Fest can't really replicate the full experience of a show like E3, but it looks like Microsoft is going to try hard to do just that anyway.
