TGS 2008: Microsoft news and notes

Microsoft always seems to do a pretty good job at Tokyo Games Show, and this year is no exception. Much like they did at E3, Microsoft gave some pretty strong focus to their new dashboard for the Xbox 360, which is coming November 19th. We also saw new Halo announcements, release dates for big name games, and plenty more. See below for some of the show highlights thus far.

Halo 3: Recon, coming Fall 2009

The game will feature a new playable character, an ODST Marine. Check out the debut trailer.

The Flood confirmed to be in Halo Wars

Everybody’s least favorite enemy ever is going to be appearing in Halo Wars. Deal with it. Pic with info below.

The New Xbox Experience Coming November 19

In what looks like it’s a cross between Vista, the current Xbox dashboard, and Nintendo’s Wii channels, the upcoming dashboard for the Xbox 360 is going to be sweet.

Several announcements for XBLA

Here are some upcoming titles for Xbox Live Arcade. Some are due out this year, others in the first half of next year.

  • Super Arkanoid (2008 release)
  • Space Invaders Extreme (2008 release)
  • Metal Slug 7
  • R-Type
  • The King of Fighters ’98: Ultimate Match

There was plenty more from Microsoft at TGS, especially from 3rd parties. We’ll keep you all updated, so keep an eye on the blog (or go to a site that updates faster, I don’t care).

I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both
equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
The problem is something that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.
I am very happy that I found this during my hunt for something regarding this.
