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?

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

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.
