Microsoft’s Plan to rock at E3

Xbox360Well, haven’t we all been waiting for this bit of news? We just reported some time back that the HD-DVD Player for the 360 will be shown at E3. There’s a heck of a lot more that you might be looking at actually. Some guy, reported to work at Microsoft, has released this unconfirmed info at a Spanish Forum. Luckily for us, ‘HardKnock’ at Beyond3D forums has translated it for us non-spanish folks.

You’d be naive to believe all of it. But, even if half of these things are true, you’d be looking at Microsoft to walk all over Sony at E3.

  • Xbox 360 Premium Pack price is going to drop $100 in October.
  • Xbox 360 Core Pack price is going to drop $80 in October
  • Gears of War is going to be released the last week of October with an huge marketing campaign at global scale.
  • HD-DVD for the next month of September. Add-on that you can connect to the USB 2.0 port. It is going to be priced for $100

  • Halo 3 is going to be in the market the next month of March, in E3 we are going to see the first videos.
  • Possibility of an “urban game” that could be GTA. Microsoft is working on it and this isn´t a joke.
