The company added, "in anticipation of another record year in 2011, Microsoft announced the size of the Kinect games portfolio will triple by the end of the year."

hopefully they will have tons of core games...

Halo 4
Halo CE Remake
Forza 4
Gears of War 3
Alan Wake "2"
PGR 5 ?
New Core Shooter from Vancouver
CrackDown 3

A man can dream ...

They probably going to release either Halo 4 or Halo CE remake not both at E3. Probably makes sense to release CE before Halo 4 (that is of course if Halo makes an appearance at all)

iamnsuperman3027d ago (Edited 3027d ago )

Also another crackdown unlikely but apart from that yer I hope you are right

Megaton3027d ago

Sounds more like a nightmare to me. I don't want Alan Wake 2, Kingdoms or Gears 3 to be gimped by some gimmicky Kinect interface.

Arnon3027d ago (Edited 3027d ago )

Well, we already know a new Panzer Dragoon, Steel Battalion, Rise of Nightmares, and a few others are on their way.

I'm mainly wanting to see controller/kinect hybrid titles like Steel Battalion.

There were some rumors about Gears of War: Exile might be Kinect title... might be interesting to see. Then there is always Star Wars!

K-sports sell 3mil in 6 months with 10-12mil Kinects out there. That is pretty impressive. Some AAA title have not fared as well. D_Central has done well also with 2.5 mil. Kinect needs a few more fun experiences though. I would like to see some that you can sit and play casually (a broard game or card game would be a good start). Then, a hybrid controller, core game, by year end would be kool.

Good to see Kinect Sports and Dace Central selling well. I own both of these titles and they are the best Kinect has to offer at the moment.

At E3 I hope to see more Kinect titles but I also would like to see the obvious.

Halo 4
Halo CE remake
Ninja Gaiden 3
Project Gotham Racing 5
Alan Wake 2
Gears Exile?
Rare offerings?
Lionhead offerings?
Splinter Cell Conviction 2
Metro 2034
I am not the type of gamer who can afford 20 exclusives a year, but I would like a solid 4-6 to be honest.

Raven_Nomad3027d ago

Well sequels are hot right now, from all the big three consoles. In the current economy companies aren't wanting to risk money on IPs that are untested.

Which is why we get games on a two year cycle right now.


i never said "so many damn sequels" because of the 360. there's just so many damn sequels XD

Morbius4203026d ago

Please no more Lionhead...let $ony have them.

stealth500k3027d ago

can non kinect offerings triple as well? In different genres please?

theafroman3027d ago

Yeah, because we all wanted to see more kinect games MS.

MasterCornholio3027d ago (Edited 3027d ago )

All the people who bought Kinect and the fan-boys want to see more Kinect games. In due time the others will buy Kinect because Microsoft is coming out with a ton of games for the device. Which is good news for fans of the device.
