Preview E3 2011 – Xbox

Xbox – You are a go.

They opened with the game that always sells

Modern Warfare 3

Finally with actual game play.  The demo starts under water attacking a sub from beneath and surfacing near a heavily damaged New York city.

Tomb Raider

This new reboot takes Lara Croft and shows a grittyier, and inexperienced and younger woman just starting out.  This more realistic, and ‘real’ game.  The Trailer shows Lara making jump, not making a few, screaming n pain and yelling ‘this is gonna hurt’  We see her trudging along with a broken arm, filthy from the crash and has no clue what she’s doing.  This is how Lara becomes the woman we know.  From the look of the demo it seems like they want Lara to become Nathan Drake.

EA Kinect

Tiger Woods, Madden and Fifa.  All games with Kinect capability.  Sims and family game night four will also work with Kinect.

Mass Effect 3

Earth is taken and Shepard leads the battle to take it back.  ME3 will use Kinect’s voice recognition.  The voice recognition can be used to choose responses, and order your troops into combat position much like SOCOM. The video showed Garrus, Morridin, and Liara in the game.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier

Much like Ubisoft’s video, Xbox showed Ghost Recon: Future Soldier.  This was just a video.  The game has Kinect hook ups.  It works with gunsmith, shooting and all throughout the game.  All future titles in the Tom Clancy line will work with Kinect.

Xbox Live

A new xbox menu will be loaded.  Youtube is coming to Xbox live, Bing voice search is being added to ease your searching through the xbox system.  Watch live TV on xbox.  The new experience launches this fall.

Gear of War 3

The game, which now stars Ice-T, showed a new demo of the Gears fighting a massive aqua monster.


This Kinect action game takes place in the fall of Rome.  With a move of one hand you move your shield, and with another you slash and kill.  Much like the Dragon Quest Knights game for the Wii

Halo: Combat Evolved Aniversary

10 year after the Halo arrived it is being remade and UPGRADED for xbox 360.

Fable: The Journey

The trailer say that the end of Albian is coming.  This Kinect game can, with a wave of the hand, fire spells, swing swords, and shoot.

Minecraft: Kinect

Disneyland Adventure: Kienect

Kinect Star Wars

Another games announced last year.  We see more such as podracing, speed bike riding, fighting a rancor, cloud city battles, and a duel with a pair of Sith.

Sesame Street: Once upon a Monster

A Tim Shaffer  game that uses kinect to interact.  The game, obviously for kids, puts you in the place of Elmo and Cookie monster in an adventure game.

Kinect Sports: Season 2

Dance Central 2

Halo 4

They ended this year with the Trailer for Halo 4, the beginning of a new trilogy by the company taking over the series 343.
