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?

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
