E3 Predictions: The Big Three

Posted on Tuesday, May 24 @ 12:19:26 Eastern by





Microsoft has been rather quiet this year. They've got Gears of War 3 in the pipeline, but not much else. Sure there's plenty of third-party interest in Kinect, but in-house Microsoft have a lot of catching up to do.
 

A New Xbox


There's been some rumors floating around, but we think that's just some douche passing wind. We'd be more surprised if Microsoft wasn't working on a new console, but we doubt they're ready to show their hand. Not when Xbox 360 is hitting a second stride thanks to Kinect, which has plenty of untapped potential itself.

Xbox 360


There's going to be a new Halo announced. Or maybe an old Halo. That's right, we're betting that a remake of Halo: Combat Evolved will be announced. We wouldn't be surprised to see two games from the Halo universe take the stage. I've got this sneaking suspicion that with the resurgence of the fighting genre, Rare is going to show a new Killer Instinct. Other than that, there's a big question mark over Microsoft's conference. They're certainly keeping details close to the chest. But anticipate possible sequels for Banjo Kazooie, Forza Motorsport, and Too Human.
 

Kinect


Like last year, we're expecting the focus to be on Kinect. It's single-handedly no-handedly reinvigorated Xbox 360 sales, and there's plenty of potential there. Microsoft is making it clear that they want Kinects in every household, be it on your 360, your PC, or any other device, really. The acquisition of Skype means that there should be some integration with Kinect; it's a perfect fit.

We're sure to see new IPs announced, including a new Rare Kinect game and a new Kinect-focused game from Peter Molyneux. Some sequels to already released Kinect titles we make their expected debut.

Xbox LIVE


Now that the PlayStation Network has become successful--minus the recent fiasco--we sorta expect Microsoft to enable basic online gaming on Xbox LIVE Silver accounts. Then again, this is Microsoft we're talking about. "Free" isn't in their vocabulary. New XBLA titles like the new Alan Wake, and a variety of new services will be announced.

Windows 7 Phone


Microsoft is up against some stiff competition with Google's Android and Apple's iPhone. They'll be using Xbox LIVE as a bargaining chip to add allure to their mobile OS.
