Xbox 360 Gamescom 2011 Announcements

Earlier today at  Gamescom 2011 in Cologne Germany, we busted out a whole bunch of gaming news.

Here is a quick summary:

Age of Empires Online
Delivering a new take on a beloved PC franchise, “Age of Empires Online” will be available worldwide Aug. 16, inviting players to create a living, growing online empire with more than 40 hours of free gameplay. In addition, Microsoft announced two limited time offers on “Age of Empires Online” premium content for the game:

  • Season’s Pass: Users will get all of the game’s premium content for the first six months at a 30 percent discount.
  • Defense of Crete Booster Pack: With the purchase of the Greek and Egyptian Premium Civilizations, users will get the Defense of Crete Booster Pack free.

Dance Central 2
To ensure you’re completely prepared to get your best groove on when “Dance Central 2” launches on Oct. 21 in Europe and Asia, Oct. 25 in North America, and Oct. 27 in Japan, here are the latest feature announcements to keep the “Dance Central” party popping:

  • Epic Full Body Dance Battle! Players rep their favorite dance crew and go toe-to-toe against one another with two-player simultaneous tracking and compete to stand out in “spotlight sections” where their solo performance is put on display. The new Free-4-All mini-game replaces freestyle sections during Dance Battle, adding an all new competitive scoring mechanic into the mix. Players can jump ahead in score by quickly performing moves from the song worth tons of points.
  • Meet the crews of “Dance Central 2”! With the addition of simultaneous multiplayer, “Dance Central 2” adds 4 dance crews to the mix for players to rep. RipTide, Hi-Def, Flash4ward and Lu$h Crew all bring fierce personalities, amazing moves and unique looks to the world of “Dance Central.” Whether you’re playing through the crew challenge or battling it out with a friend, you have to know: which crew are you?
  • Voice integration throughout the game! You can use voice commands to select songs, pause during routines, and dictate rehearsal during Break it Down. Jumping into a routine is as simple as telling Kinect the song, mode, and difficulty and instructing it do what that little box has always dreamed of: “Xbox, Dance.”
  • An all new, customizable Break it Down experience with improved per-limb tracking, allows players to customize practice sessions to focus on select moves. Use voice commands to speed through the process, and even compare video playback of their dancing to the on-screen dancer!

  • Vagner Ranieri

    Is still Dance Central 2 with the musics edited, shorter than the first game? This is why I’m betting in Just Dance 3 than Dance Central 2…

  • http://twitter.com/SamboTaylor Sam Taylor

    So basically nothing new?

  • http://twitter.com/Grumpyrocker Harry

    Hockenheim in Forza 4 looks good. But T10 really should have gone the whole way and old modelled the older (and much better) course. Slightly Mad modelled it for the Shift 2 Legends DLC.

  • ElektroDragon

    Is it just me, or did this whole list put anyone else to sleep?  Sony’s lineup feels a lot more original and exciting, for some reason…. perhaps because it is.

    • http://www.facebook.com/johnpaul.ashfield John Ashfield

      Sonys line up had no new games for the ps3, it was a rehash of what we have known for ages, they got uncharted 3 and a few psn titles, too much time spent on the vita and nothing that exciting discussed, I am currently thinking of trading in my ps3 as it is never used.

  • http://twitter.com/AnXboxGod Greg

    Why are you people complaining? Everything here is quality stuff. 

    • Anonymous

      No kidding, there are at least 8-9 games on here that I’m either already playing (AOEO), will be getting, or interested in getting. Just because you do like something doesn’t mean millions of others don’t want it either.

    • http://twitter.com/SamboTaylor Sam Taylor

      The only interesting stuff is Gears and Forza, two givens that have been around since two E3s ago. The rest is also not new, with the only project I am yet to hear about being Kinectimals with bears… The 360 is my main console and I own a Kinect which I enjoy using, however it is by no means a revelation, just a side amusement. Push it on different mediums to create new markets, not at gamers who are engaged enough to spend their spare time watching e3′s or reading online blogs when you offer nothing with substance.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_YWVSCA4XO2OOIEGTASKDBBC3C4 Monty

      um, what lag? Kinect sports has none, dance central has none and i havent played the games due out this christmas, unless you have then kindly jog on

    • corellianrogue

      Kinect has about the same amount of lag as a joypad playing a 30fps game. If there are any Kinect games with excessive lag then it’s just the developer’s fault just like it is with laggy joypad games. If you honestly have a Kinect and you’re getting excessive lag in, say, Kinect Adventures or Kinect Sports then you must have an LCD HDTV and haven’t switched “Game Mode” on or you’re running the Xbox 360′s video output through a separate A/V receiver instead of plugging it straight into the TV. Or both in which case you could be adding something like 300ms lag to your games!

  • Anonymous

    no price cuts????

    gotta admit,at least SONY had a press conference not sure what’s going on with MS/Xbox right now

    • Anonymous

      Why on Earth would they cut price?  As a reaction move to Sony?  They are outselling the PS3 in the US – they don’t need to change anything as of right now. 

      This Holiday – maybe, but not in August when you’re still the top dog in the US for the entire calendar year so far – entry price is still $50 less (yes, I’m aware that it’s got a small hard drive and no blu-ray player…) retail and even more off if you know how to shop.

      I’ll give you credit though – at least you found something original to complain about – no matter how baseless it is.

      • Anonymous

        If the story about the new System on Chip processor is true, then there should hopefully be a price cut soon.  It will cost less to manufacture and cutting the cost will keep MS sales up with their 5(?) year old system. With an aging system, the lack of hardcore exclusives (right now), with the *reputation* from the RROD (that is fixed!), and the reputation of the Xbox being a money pit, MS really does need to stay competitive on its price.

      • http://twitter.com/GreenMistt kyle

        Yes because the US makes up for the entire world -_-. Not that i really care if they announced a price cut or not. Your comment is ignorant.

        • Anonymous

          To be fair, in the week of the 13th the Xbox out sold PS3 in the US, and PS3 out sold Xbox in EMEAA, but Xbox sold more and selling as much as the did in the US, Xbox actually beat the PS3 in the world totals.  The numbers for Japan was not out, so that might tilt the numbers.  I agree, Miller, that the US doesn’t make up the entire world, but in this case of sales, the US sales were high enough to make up for the rest of the world’s sales.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QTLTKKCD2PJT42XZ7LALCXRX5Q claudio

    I’m not disappointed. …just because I had 0 expectations.
    Seriously, casual gaming, casual gaming, very old titles, casual gaming. People is starting to getting annoyed at this, you know. It seems you have completely forgotten why Xbox 360 had so much success until now.

  • Pingback: Skulls of the Shogun playable at Gamescom | xblafans.com

  • http://twitter.com/Ganon255 Dustin

    Thanks for the update Major.

    The business model for Age of Empires is confusing and off-putting. $100 for 6 months? Why not $100 for lifetime or offer a subscription? There are too many price tiers. I was going to purchase content for this game, but now that I know that $100 will only get me to February at 30% discount, it just puts a bad taste in my mouth and now I don’t want to purchase any of it. I’ll just play the free version, if at all. The whole system seems unnecessarily convoluted to me.

    On a side note, Fun Labs doesn’t load up or work, nor has it for sometime.

    I plan on getting a Wndows Phone 7, this fall. It’s nice to see more LIVE ready games coming to it.

  • http://twitter.com/Alimaggs Alastair Maggs

    Biggest announcement that was never made by Xbox: Game Room is dead and we’re not reviving it. Sunset Riders XBLA just doesn’t seem like it’s going to happen.

    • Anonymous

      Game Room wasn’t too bad either, it had potential.  The only issue with it was that MS was trying to get money to play games from the 70s.  Maybe if they had some arcade games from the 90s and charged (cheap)… but to pay for atari games, no.  Again, too bad, it would probably be more successful and distinguish Xbox from the competition if they didn’t try to monopolize on it

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_7LYY3AVI6IK63ORMXZ735WKCIQ ______

    Can’t wait for Forza 4 and Trials Evo. Yeah…that’s about it.

  • http://www.facebook.com/johnpaul.ashfield John Ashfield

    Gears 3, Forza 4, Kinect Star Wars, The Witcher 2, Dance Central 2, Tropico 4 – The next couple of months has some awesome exclusives :D Ya got shooters, strategy games, racing games, RPGs and casual games all coming as exclusives in the next 6 months, on top of the third party games xbox seems to be doing ok.

    • Peter M.

      Well, 2011 has been completely empty so far. And Tropico and Witcher are by no means exclusives.

      • corellianrogue

        2011 hasn’t been completely empty of exclusives so far. I guess you missed DeathSmiles, Michael Jackson: The Experience (counted as an exclusive as it’s different to the other versions), Child Of Eden (exclusive for now), The First Templar (I know it got bad reviews and I haven’t played it yet myself but that doesn’t change the fact it’s an exclusive) off the top of my head (and not including casual games like Fantastic Pets and Dr Kawashima’s Body & Brain Exercises) and all the XBLA exclusives?

        • http://twitter.com/Zacagawea Zach Kozlowski

          LOLUJOKINGRIGHT. Gears 3, Forza 4, Dance Central 2, Halo:CEA are the only exclusives this year, don’t fool yourself. I love all those games I listed, but don’t act like we’ve actually had a good year.

          • corellianrogue

            Those aren’t the only exclusives this year. If you choose to ignore the
            games I mentioned then that’s your problem. I admit it’s a shame that
            there weren’t even more high profile exclusives this year so far but
            then again there are so many other games out that it doesn’t matter if
            they’re exclusive or not, especially when the Xbox 360 version is
            usually the best console version when it comes to multiplatform games.

          • Anonymous

            I agree that the Xbox 360 version of games, if not on par, is normally better.  As for the exclusives, people tend to ignore most of your list because they primarily represent arcade games and Kinect games.  I think people are looking for true Xbox non-casual games.  Games like Mass Effect and Gears of War.  Not dancing games, Disneyland games and Wii type games.  Rise of Nightmare looks pretty good though, wish it was a controller based game.

          • corellianrogue

            The whole point of Rise Of Nightmares is to NOT be a controller-based game. People who think Kinect is just for casual games clearly aren’t true hardcore gamers because the point of Kinect is to make possible games that just weren’t possible before. People might say “Oh, well loads of survival horrors have been made before.” but the point is the gameplay experience. We now have the ability to control a game with our bodies in 3D space and that’s a HUGE leap forward in videogaming. It’s pretty much the same as the leap from 2D games to 3D games. (As in polygons, not 3D glasses.) Look at the Kinect version of Michael Jackson: The Experience, that game is totally revolutionary and impossible to create before Kinect. The best that could have been done would be flat video with basic 2D tracking that would need constant calibrating on the EyeToy/PSEye/Xbox Live Vision camera. (See Kung Fu: Live on the PS3, which is now getting a Kinect sequel, Kung Fu: High Impact, which the developer says works a lot better as they don’t have to worry about the video tracking like they had to with the PSEye.)

          • corellianrogue

             Also, your list only includes future games coming out this year and even then you’re totally wrong. You missed out (off the top of my head) Rise Of Nightmares, The Gunstringer, PowerUp Heroes, Kinect Sports 2, Blackwater, Leedmees, Kinect Disneyland Adventures, Championship Jocky and Kinect Star Wars. Also hopefully Ryse (used to be called Codename Kingdoms), Steel Battalion: Heavy Armour, Project Draco, Codename D (possibly called Diabolical Pitch now) and Haunt. Those games haven’t got confirmed release dates yet but they’re expected for 2011.

          I can’t believe you cited MJ-The experience LOL!

          • corellianrogue

            Why? It’s great! Let me guess, you’re going by IGN’s review score? The
            same IGN who can’t even play Kinect games properly as shown by their
            screenshots and videos of Michael Jackson: the Experience where most of
            their legs are missing! Or how about Gamespot who claimed that the game
            has got “significant lag” which is a total lie as it’s got the same or
            even less lag than Your Shape which is next to nothing, no more than a
            joypad’s lag. Gamespot couldn’t set up Kinect properly at first either
            because when they first got Kinect they set it up so that it could only
            see the top half of their body then complained that their legs weren’t
            being tracked properly, lol!

        • Peter M.

          You have to count Kinect minigames, timed exclusives and pc games to get to a decent number of “exclusives”.

          • corellianrogue

            DeathSmiles isn’t a timed exclusive or PC game as far as I know and isn’t a Kinect game let alone a Kinect minigame. Michael Jackson: The Experience isn’t a Kinect minigame. Rise Of Nightmares isn’t a Kinect minigame, The Gunstringer isn’t a Kinect minigame, PowerUp Heroes isn’t a Kinect minigame, Blackwater isn’t a Kinect minigame, Kung Fu: High Impact (sequel to Kung Fu: Live that I just found out is Xbox 360 exclusive) isn’t a Kinect minigame, I don’t think Leedmees is a Kinect minigame it seems to be sort of like Lemmings but it’s pretty unique, Champion Jockey isn’t a Kinect minigame (I doubt I’ll buy it but that’s irrelevant) Kinect Star Wars isn’t a Kinect minigame, Steel Battalion: Heavy Armour isn’t a Kinect minigame, Ryse (if it’s not delayed until next year) isn’t a Kinect minigame. Also I seriously doubt Project Draco, Codename D (probably called Diabolical Pitch) and Haunt are Kinect minigames and hopefully they won’t be delayed until next year. I’m sure they’ll be shown at TGS and their release dates announced. Also I forgot Otomedius Excellent which isn’t a Kinect minigame (isn’t a Kinect game at all) and as far as I know isn’t a timed exclusive or a PC game. Plus you once again completely ignored exclusive XBLA games that are often praised by both “professional” critics and regular players.
