X10: Microsoft Shows Its Hand For 2010

Yesterday, Microsoft drew a green line in the sand, showing off much of the platform holder's lineup for the remainder of the year. There were screenshots, trailers, even interviews. Here's the pick of it all.

What most excited you? For me, it certainly wasn't Peter Molyneux's promises. While I admire what the guy has done in the past, and think he still makes interesting stuff, I hear him talk about one of his games prior to its release now and all I hear is white noise.

No, I actually enjoyed that Dead Rising 2 trailer the most. I love it when developers release raw footage of a game; it may suck as entertainment, but as a source of information - in this case, what DR2 will look like when you actually play it - it's priceless.

    Could not agree more about Peter Molyneux, mind you I'll probably still get Fable 3. Fable 2 was kind of disappointing and felt very casual but I still enjoyed it.

    I find it kind of depressing that the only thing I actually found interesting in this roundup was Wesker in LP2. Sure, I'm interested in all the games listed, but we've known about them since forever. We can bank on them being good etc. Where's the NEW stuff?

      The current trend of things is to release sequels. So I don't think your looking up the right place.

    I personally don't think the 360's exclusive line up this year is all that jazz. My reaction to what I've heard so far has been 'great milking more Halo', Alan who? and Fable shmable the first one blows.

    Personally I think multi-platform titles this year are the go. I'm most excited for games like Red Dead: Redemption, Just Cause 2, Bad Company 2 and, if it comes out this year, Fallout: New Vegas.

    Alan Wake looks pretty interesting on the tech side, the jury's still out on the gameplay.

    Apart from that, there's a new Fable and a new Halo coming. And a bit of DLC coming for other games (or old DLC returning for Halo 2).

    I really think MS need to start taking their internal development more seriously. Sony are gradually overtaking them on the exclusives front by simply - duh - making more exclusives.

    MS's policy of spending their money on timed exclusivity of 3rd party stuff instead of genuinely exclusive 1st party games (hell, maybe even a new IP or two?) runs the risk of backfiring. Once it becomes clear that most of their exclusives end up on PS3 within 12 months, while Sony's tend to stay exclusive due to being internally developed, the PS3 starts looking a lot more tempting.
