While Microsoft has been saying to expect 25-40 Xbox 360 games within the "launch window," the company has yet to say which specific titles would be available. Today at the X05 event in Amsterdam, MS confirmed that Rare's Kameo: Elements of Power and Perfect Dark Zero as well as Bizarre Creations' Project Gotham Racing 3 would definitely be included in the "holiday portfolio," but it's still not clear if that means these games will be available day one.
Additionally, a list of future releases revealed a few previously unannounced titles, such as a new RPG from BioWare called Mass Effect and a new Castle Wolfenstein from id Software.
"The biggest and the best names in publishing are committed to the success of Xbox 360, and looking at the titles we have announced tonight we are very excited. From exclusive titles to debuting the next installment of some of the world's best-loved franchises, Xbox 360 will redefine gaming and entertainment. The high-definition era of gaming starts now," said Peter Moore, corporate vice president of Worldwide Marketing and Publishing for Xbox.
