E3 2011: Microsoft highlights

The first day of E3 press conferences started with Microsoft making major annoucements about their most popular titles.

"Madden '12"-Ray Lewis, Peyton Ellis and Clay Matthews (with the Lombardi trophy) appeared on stage in full gear following the trailer. I'm wondering if this is cool, considering current NFL labor situation. I don't get the excitement about "Madden" as it seems like the game stays the same, it just updates players.

"Dance Central 2"-As the most popular game on Kinect, it's no surprise that Harmonix made a sequel. It'll be interesting to see how multplayer element works, plus what songs will be added.

"Kinect Star Wars"-This is one of the games I'm most excited about. The game uses the Kinect system to turn players into actual Jedis. Gamers can use their bodies to fight in light saber battles and use force powers to move objects. The game takes place in the prequel trilogy timeline, beginning right after "The Phantom Menace" and ending with the events of "Revenge of the Sith."

"Kinect Disneyland Adventures"-The game takes players on various adventures throughout the theme park. It looks like a lame Wii game, but my love of all things Disneyland has me curious.
