E3 Round-up: Microsoft keynote

09 Jun 11

Understandably, the emphasis for Microsoft's E3 keynote was on the Kinect but, unlike last year, it didn't come across as forced.

Taking advantage of being the first of the big three console manufactures to hold an address, Microsoft started with a first look at a couple of big multi-platform titles coming our way.

Showing off a submarine assault from Modern Warfare 3, the speaker was quick to remind the audience that the downloadable content, to what is sure to be the best-selling game of the year, will be released on Microsoft’s console first.

Next up was the return of Lara Croft in a sequence form the upcoming ret-conned origin game simply titled Tomb Raider. A nice looking demo, a bit scripted but it's still early days.
