Microsoft has released a beefed-up list of games to make use of the Xbox Live online gaming service, with the software giant now rampantly dominant in the technical delivery of online play.
The updated list reads:
Full Spectrum Warrior - June 2004
Driver 3 - June 2004
Rainbow Six Black Arrow - August 2004
Mortal Kombat: Deception - October 2004
FIFA Football 2005 - October 2004
Star Wars Battlefront - 21st September 2004
Burnout 3 - September 2004
Outrun 2 - October 2004
Unreal Championship 2 - Christmas 2004
Halo 2 - 9th November 2004
Need for Speed Underground 2 - November 2004
Forza Motorsport - December 2004
Call of Duty: Finest Hour - Q4 2004
Doom 3 – Expected Autumn 2004
MechAssault 2 – Q1 2005
All of the above games offer full online play. Microsoft’s emergence into the gaming sphere may well be underlined by a desire to take over your digital living room space, though its online games strategy alone is something to be applauded as it exists today.
In other news, Nintendo, at its investor meeting earlier this week, stated that it has had ambitions for networked gaming since the days of the Famicom. President Satoru Iwata pointed to the Game Boy Advance and its wireless adapter as evidence that the firm is pushing forward.
