E3 2011 Microsoft Press Conference Confirmed Rumors and Appearances

June 1, 2011, By Nicholas Davis

Microsoft has everybody excited about what they are bringing to the table this year. After last years performance some might say that their press conference wasn’t as good as it could be. Hardcore gamers felt left out due to the conference mainly being about Kinect. Hopefully Microsoft can please everybody this year. The image shown below was released earlier telling people what to expect from their E3 2011 press conference.

Some developers and publishers are confirmed to show some new games and announcements at Microsoft’s press conference.

  • Forza 4 by Microsoft

  • Rise Of Nightmares by Sega (Kinect title)
  • Star Wars Kinect by Terminal Velocity
  • Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster by Double Fine
  • Unnamed Title by Good Science Games (Probably a Kinect title)
  • XCOM by 2K Games
  • Some developers and publishers have also confirmed that they will not be appearing at Microsoft’s E3 press conference.

  • Big name rumors make up half the excitement for E3. I wouldn’t be surprised if most of these actually happened at this years E3 or sometime in the future.

  • Alan Wake: Night Springs (Will support Kinect)
  • Codename: Kingdoms
  • Dance Central 2
  • Forza World
  • Gears Of War Kinect Rail Shooter

  • Potential price drop for the Xbox 360 console and Kinect.

  • It seems as though hardcore gamers are not going to be pleased with Microsoft’s performance this year. It’s pleasing to see Microsoft support Kinect though. They definitely don’t want this revolutionary piece of machinery to fall through as a gimmick. Hopefully Microsoft announces some type of Skype support and other Xbox Live apps in the next update. Regardless of what type of gamer you are Microsoft is sure to have an enjoyable conference at E3 2011.
