E3 2009

leave a comment »

Looking back at the first day of E3 I’ll write a little summary for you guys who were absent on the Moon:

  • Project Natal – Microsoft’s answer to the WiiMote.
  • Metal Gear Rising – Another Metal Gear game except this time there’s a twist: It’s coming out on the Xbox!
  • Facebook, Twitter and Last.FM get integrated into the New Xbox Experience. Unfortunately they couldn’t just go the whole way and give us an internet browser.
  • Ubisoft announces No More Heroes 2, another Rayman game (although now it’s all about the rabbbits), release date for Assasin’s Creed 2 (November 17th), Splinter Cell Conviction is a reality.
  • Left4Dead 2 is announced. Still no word on Half-Life 2: Episode 3.
  • Crysis 2 is going to be released on consoles. Probably not the Wii.
  • Halo 3: Orbital-Drop-Shock-Trooper has a really cool multiplayer mode, various details, trailer and images released. Supposed collector’s edition controller (remember the Halo 3 Xbox?). Master Chief won’t make an appearance because he’s set to resurface in the new… wait for it… Halo: Reach which is to be released as soon as he gets out of the escape pod he was encased in at the end of Halo 3 (2010).
  • Various Music game collections announced, those worthy of note are Rock Band Beatles and DJ Hero.
  • Full download of Xbox 360 games (a bit like Steam).
