Microsoft Leipzig Game Convention Coverage - GamesIndustry.biz


Gameindustry.biz has the latest coverage of the Microsoft conference from the Leipzig, Germany gaming convention. Quote:

"During a packed Xbox 360 and Games for Windows conference in Leipzig, the platform holder said that it had fashioned a deal to bring Pro Evolution Soccer 6 and FIFA '07 to Xbox 360 exclusively for the next 12 months - with no other next-generation versions to appear.

It also reiterated that its HD-DVD drive would launch this autumn, although Xbox 360 heavy-hitter Forza Motorsport 2 will be here "this winter" having previously been labelled as "Christmas" - something we're seeking clarification on now.

Later in the year, the company said, its Games for Windows branding campaign would come into full force, with a logo to be visible on many PC game boxes signifying compatibility, parental controls and other features set to become standard with Windows Vista."
