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?

STYLISTIC Q702

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

STYLISTIC Q572

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

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
