Gears Of War 2 Covers

Microsoft has had a big day at the Game Developers Conference (GDC).  We have been following the announcements all day at Kotaku (source of the image) and at G4tv’s blog “The Feed”.  The biggest announcement of the day is that Gears of War 2 is official and as expected will be out for the holidays in November.  This has been rumored since the first ‘Gears’ came out and now is for real… they even included a GOW 2 teaser trailer in the announcement.

Also scoring big hits today for team Xbox was the announcement that Grand Theft Auto 4 (GTA 4) will have downloadable content (DLC) on the release date of April 29.  This is exclusive content available only on the Xbox 360 and available the same day the game is in stores.  The sequel for Ninja Gaiden will be released June 3 and will have “recording” features similar to Halo 3.   The XNA Game Studio is now set to beta test user created games and distribute them via Xbox Live… these games were shown being played on Xbox, PC, and even the Zune!  Fable 2 and Too Human were showcased as well, bolstering the already strong Microsoft lineup.  More Xbox Live Arcade titles were added too.
