MS exec confirms Alan Wake, Crackdown 2 in 2010's first half

Microsoft will release Xbox 360 exclusive titles each month for the first six months of the new year

Crackdown 2 is confirmed for a release in the first half of 2010.

Crackdown 2 is confirmed for a release in the first half of 2010.

On a recent podcast, Microsoft exec Aaron Greenberg commented that there would be a "triple-A exclusive" for almost every month in the first half of 2010, citing Alan Wake and Crackdown 2 as examples.

Shacknews has extracted a juicy bit of release data from Major Nelson's recent podcast regarding two highly-anticipated Xbox 360-exclusives. At the 32-minute mark of the podcast, Microsoft exec Aaron Greenberg revealed "we have a triple-A exclusive title pretty much every month for the first half of the year."

Greenberg includes Mass Effect 2 and Splinter Cell: Conviction as representatives of the first two months of 2010 (releasing on January 26 and February 23, respectively). Two other games that should presumably land before July, according to Greenberg, will be the oft-delayed Alan Wake and Crackdown 2.

Between the aforementioned Xbox 360 exclusives, BioShock 2, Final Fantasy XIII, and the PS3's one-two punch of Heavy Rain and God of War III, the first half of 2010 is looking like Christmas II right now. Anyone think some more delays are in order?

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
