E3: The rubbish MS will announce for Xbox 360

Microsoft has been pretty quiet in the run to E3, and it was speculated (by me) that we'd get a lame press conference from the Xbox 360 maker, for the third straight year. According to the list of games it's due to announce, the speculation is dead-on.

  • Dance Central 2
  • KinectFunLabs
  • XCommerce
  • Kinect Sports: Season 2
  • Fable: The Journey

Like last year, Kinect seems set to be the main focus, with at least three of the five titles being connected to the devices (and XCommerce is likely going to involve it too, whatever that is). While Nintendo and Sony gracefully step away from motion control and the gimmick finally starts to fade, you can count on Microsoft to try and beat a dead horse.

The only game of note so far is Fable: The Journey. Of course, this is not a final list, so better announcements could be in the works. So far it's looking like yet another humdrum showing for the Xbox, unless Microsoft's got something really special hidden under its hat.
