[E3 2011] Microsoft Xbox 360 massive game announcement teases more than 10 new games on video

Microsoft held their E3 press conference today, ahead of the actual E3 Expo start tomorrow. There are also tons of things we’d like to share with you. The show gave us a glimpse of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Tomb Raider, Mass Effect 3, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, UFC, Gears of War 3, RYSE, Fable The Journey, Forza Motorsport 4, Kinect Star Wars, Halo Anniversary, Halo 4 and many more.

The Xbox conference started with a gameplay demo of the new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, showing beautiful graphics, engaging gameplay and other awesome stuff. Here is the video:

The second game we saw was the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot. This is the first gameplay video and it seems the developer, Crystal Dynamics, is on the right path here.

Mass Effect 3 also had a short demonstration. The only thing we learn is that there will be some sort of Kinect integration. You will be able to give voice commands on your teammates and also use voice commands in dialogues. That’s it. We’ll see more from Mass Effect 3 later from BioWare.

The new Ghost Recon: Future Soldier was also demoed on the conference:

The next announcement was about YouTube and Bing integration with voice control option.

Gears of War 3 exclusive co-op demo coming up next. The game kicks on 20 September this year.

Minecraft for Xbox 360. No comment!

Crytek’s RYSE is another game to debut on the conference. It will be set in ancient Rome and use the latest Crytek graphics. Here is the trailer.

Expectedly, Microsoft announced Halo Anniversary. It’s a remastered version of the first Halo: Combat Evolved and will bring the Halo pioneer into the HD era with completely new graphics, remastered sound, updated campaign, multiplayer maps, multiplayer gaming and co-op via Xbox Live. Halo Anniversary will become available on 15 November this year.

Forza Motorsport 4, guys. The game looks awesome:

Peter Molyneux appeared to demonstrate a new Fable game with full Kinect support. It’s called Fable: The Journey (note this is NOT Fable IV) and should bring lots of Kinect fun. Look at that magic stuff:

And here is the trailer:

Microsoft and Disney combine powers to bring Disneyland in your home with the Disneyland Adventures. It’s a Kinect game that has a copy of the whole Disneyland inside it. It looks pretty awesome… if you are a kid, that is.

Kinect Star Wars – also expected. Here is the video:

Star Wars Kinect demo here:

There is a new Kinect feature – Kinect Me. It creates an avatar that looks just like you. And it’s available for download today!

Three more games have been announced during the conference – Dance Central 2, UFC and Kinect Sports: Season 2.

Here are the upcoming Xbox Live Arcade titles:

The Microsoft conference ended with an announcement for a new Halo trilogy, starting with Halo 4 in holiday season 2012. No Bungie here guys, 343 Industries takes the lead. Let’s hope they won’t screw the Halo universe.

Too much Kinect stuff, if you ask me, because whatever Kinect titles Microsoft announces, the new Wii will kick their … well, you know.
