Microsoft announced some big news today. I'll try to keep this thread up to date with the latest X06 news and reports.

Splinter Cell 5 (not the game coming out at the end of this year, the following SC game) is a 360 and Vista exclusive.

BioShock - A next gen "state of the art" FPS (it's supposed to change the way we play FPS games) is also a 360 exclusive.

Marvel Universe MMO -- The folks who developed City of Heroes is making an MMO for the 360 and Vista based on Marvel Comics.
http://www.gamesindustry.biz/content_page.php?aid=19993

Halo Wars - A new RTS based on the Halo universe is being developed for the 360 (NOT the PC... weird).

Another "Halo" game - Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh is collaberating to make another Halo based game. Not to be confused with Halo 3 or Halo Wars... Another one.

Doom - The original Doom game was released for Xbox Live Arcade. Nice.


Peter Jackson is not making just a game, but some sort of movie/game hybrid. Interesting.

oh and Mor You forgot to mention that GTA4 for 360 will have exclusive downloadable espansion packs with hours (each apparently as long as GTA:LCS) of gameplay

Dont really care about halo universe doesn't interest me..

I do have to admit microsoft is doing good about console exclusives but I glady got a good pc so I got no need for a 360 yet. Hoping I never do because I will doubtfully be able to afford all 3 systems anytime soon..

I'm actually more excited about Halo Wars than Halo 3... But millions of Halo fans world wide don't quite think so...
