Update 1: Alan Wake video added to the bottom of the post.
Tonight at Microsoft’s 2010 (yes, we’re already in 2010) CES Keynote they announced quite a few things, and we’ve got them summarized for you below. Of course these are things we didn’t really know much about previously; games like Mass Effect 2 coming later this month, or Splinter Cell: Conviction coming in February don’t count for this.
- Natal – Coming this holiday season (as if we didn’t know this already?)
- Fable III – Coming later this year, presumably during the holiday season
- Crackdown 2 – Coming later this year
- Alan Wake – Coming this year, will feature episodic content upon release on the Xbox Live Marketplace
- Game Room – Virtual arcade room with virtual arcade machines
- Starting out with 30 games at launch this Spring
- Games releasing every week for a total of a 1000 games in 3 years
- Pricing: 240 to 400 MSP for game downloads, or 40 MSP for a single play
- Cross-platform: Games purchased can be either played on your Xbox 360 through Xbox Live or on your PC through Games for Windows Live
- Your Games Room is your own personal arcade, complete with Arcade cabinets
- You can visit your friends’ games rooms and try their games for free before you buy your own
During the live stream there were some blackouts, one of which no one seemed to understand, and the other which was somewhat understood.Â The first one was for the Halo: Reach trailer, which was shown about a month ago at the Spike VGAs, while the other was for the Game Room trailer.Â Luckily, Microsoft had the trailer posted after the show, and we’ve got it embedded below for your viewing pleasures.
And further below, we’ve got two more of the other videos that were shown off at the Microsoft CES Keynote: one of project Natal and another, not shown though, of an interview with Mike Lake about Alan Wake.
