Microsoft showcased its best titles and its most talented developers yesterday. The lineup for the pre-Game Developer's Conference event was nothing if not impressive. Microsoft brought out its top developers to showcase the titles. Lionhead's Peter Molyneux was flown in from England to show off Fable 2, Mistwalker's Hironobu Sakaguchi gave presentations on Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey, and BioWare co-founders Greg Zeschuk and Ray Muzyka previewed the action role-playing game Mass Effect. Microsoft also showed off Forza Motorsport 2, Shadowrun, Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures, and a host of new titles for Xbox Live.
Although the rest of the games shown were certainly not lacking, they did take second stage to Microsoft's role-playing titles.
