Microsoft Press Conference
Unlike Sony, who focused exclusively on PS3, Microsoft focused some of their attention on current-generation hardware. Over 20 million Xbox’s have been sold worldwide with an expected 2 million Xbox Live users in the near-term. Hitman: Blood Money, L.A Rush, Batman Returns, Blitz Playmakers, Tak 3, Conker, Tomb Raider: Legend, From Russia with Love, Destroy All Humans, and Half-Life 2 were among the games shown for release on Xbox in 2005.
Going into 2006, Microsoft says that it will continue to sell Xbox consoles. Xbox 360 will be backwards compatible for ‘the top selling Xbox games’, says Robbie Bach. The Xbox 360 launches in North America, Europe, and Japan this holiday season.
