This year will be the most significant in the history of Microsoft’s Xbox brand. The company has promised a must-have game in every single month, capping it off towards the end with a brand new Halo game. That should be enough to get anybody excited, and yet somehow videogames aren’t even what everyone is talking about. That’s because Microsoft is set to release its controller-free gaming experience called Project Natal this holiday season psp games.
Think about that for a moment. In a year where we have games like Mass Effect 2, Final Fantasy XIII, Alan Wake, Crackdown 2, BioShock 2, Splinter Cell: Conviction, and Fable III, the most talked about thing is a peripheral that doesn’t even have an official name yet. Who could have predicted that one? Right now the details for the 3D camera are fairly scarce, but you can expect all of that to change this summer at the Electronic Entertainment Expo when Microsoft puts it on center stage. New games will be announced for Natal at that time and, before you know it, we’ll be playing them just a few months later.
It’s going to be an expensive year for the hardcore gamer that owns an Xbox 360, but that’s about the only negative thing you can say about the outlook for Microsoft’s console. The games are rolling in. The hardware finally has a decent failure rate. Xbox Live just keeps getting better. And soon we’ll be able to play games and more without even holding a controller.
Now, the good stuff. The Xbox 360 games we’re most looking forward to in the months to come. From shooters to RPGs and everything in between, Microsoft’s system is looking hot in 2010.
