E3 2009 / Microsoft reveals upcoming console exclusives

Exclusives, Microsoft’s green machine has got ’em according to the lineup revealed today, which includes Forza Motorsport 3, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Conviction, Left 4 Dead 2, Alan Wake, Shadow Complex, Halo 3: ODST, Halo: Reach and Crackdown 2.

I’m particularly pumped about returning to Ruffian Game’s super-powered crime fighting sandbox, which promises to deliver “complete freedom to explore, destroy and play as you return to restore justice and peace to Pacific City – by any means necessary.” True, there’s been a recent diluge of open-world titles in which players are imbued with amazing abilities, but this particular title will feature both competitive and cooperative gameplay modes! The only thing better than drop-kicking a minivan over a packing garage is drop-kicking multiple minivans with a group of similarly superpowered friends.
