Microsoft’s keynote at E3 2011 began with a live on-stage demo of never before seen Modern Warfare 3 single player campaign. Its pretty safe to say the action was nothing short of EPIC !
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
The Tomb Raider story is getting a reboot, the newest edition looks pretty brutal and is said to feature open world environments. The teaser was played on-stage and looked like a cross between a movie and user-controlled
Ghost Recon: Future Soldier
Yep u guessed it, uses Kinect as well. This time used to configure your weapons. Announcement: All future Tom Clancy titles will leverage Kinect – big call.
Expect some of this to be US-only, we’re still waiting for voice controls in Australia. YouTube and Bing are coming to Xbox. Live TV is coming to the Xbox, not only in the US, but around the world. Foxtel on Xbox mentioned, we already have that, likely just voice controlled. Coming this fall (US).
Gear of War 3
Everyone’s favourite gaming rockstar Cliffy B was joined by Ice T to demo an unseen part of GOW3. Would you expect anything less than hardcore brutal action ? I think not. Can’t wait for GOW3.
Looking forward to seeing how the Kinect integrates. Nope, just shown the trailer we’d already seen.. disappointing.
Fable: Face the Journey
Yet another game using Kinect, its clear the ‘future of xbox’ is simply Kinect.
Coming exclusively to the Xbox 360. No detail really.
Kinect Disneyland adventures
Lots of Kinect Disney games coming for the kidlets.
Kinect Star Wars
Yep, the on-stage demo looked as bad as the early vids that came out yesterday. Oh well, there’ll be a whole new generation of Star Wars Kids now.
Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster
Name says it all really. You get the idea, another one for the kids.
Kinect Fun Labs announced
Kinect now recognises Hair, eyes, mouth, clothing and more.. this is freakin sweet ! Kinect Finger tracking + object capture, Kinect getting even better. Hey Sony + Nintendo, the bar just got raised.
Kinect Sports 2
Kinect Sports is the top selling franchise on Kinect. Standard kind of improvements you’d expect out of wa
ve 2. It does integrate voice, this has to mean Australian accent will be supported.
Dance Central 2
All songs from the first can be imported. More than 100 songs, the most of any dance Kinect game. Dual dancers now supported. They actually make it look pretty fun, then again, they have rhythm.
You tease Microsoft ! Coming in Holiday 2012 – Halo 4 ! Clearly a lot of development to go, but as a Halo fan.. exciting stuff.
That’s it guys, hope you enjoyed the photo tour of Microsoft’s E3 press conference for 2011. Apologies for draining your bandwidth, but lets face it, it was worth it.
