During last year's E3, Microsoft allowed Xbox 360 owners to download exclusive content from the show as a part of "Bringing it Home"--a campaign designed to get gamers as close as possible to E3 without actually being there. A great deal of buzz was generated from the huge Lost Planet demo that allowed gamers to play two near-finished levels of the game.
Sticking with what works, Microsoft has wisely decided to continue offering E3 content from this year's expo in the form of downloadable goodies. The Gamerscore Blog reports that beginning July 10 and running through July 13, Xbox 360 owners will have access to the following exclusive hi-def content:
- Microsoft's E3 2007 press conference (Beginning at 8:30 p.m. PT on Tuesday, July 10). It will be available on Xbox Live Marketplace in high definition later in the week.
- Video updates direct from the show
- A selection of game trailers, themes, gamer pictures and demos will be available from the hottest E3 titles such as these:
- Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation (NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc.)
- Assassin's Creed (Ubisoft)
- BioShock (2K)
- Blue Dragon (Microsoft Game Studios)
- Burnout Paradise (Electronic Arts Inc.)
- Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (Activision)
