OXCGN presents to you the recording of both Robbie Bach, President of Microsoft and Steve Balmer CEO of Microsoft at their presentation just moments ago at the 2010 CES International in Las Vegas. This will be available complete via Xbox On Demand soon, but here it is early for you from OXCGN.

We’ve split this into two segments for you, and will only be running Robbie Bach’s Xbox presentation, which is Xbox related, otherwise you’ve be in for an additional 1 hour of more Microsoft discussions not related to the Xbox Platform.

Some of the content regarding Property has been omitted due to restrictions, but as soon as any embargo’s of this information has been lifted, it will be presented on OXCGN for you asap.

So without further ado, here’s Robbie Bach’s presentation on what Xbox has in store for you in 2010

• Robbie Bach’s Xbox Presentation CES International 2010

One big thing that is evedent from the show is, that Microsoft’s main aim is now focussing on Social Media and the family living room, rather than Gaming via the Xbox and Xbox Live. You need only look at the emphasis on Social media and FIlm/Video and music now available On Demand.

Advertising has been lowered somewhat from gaming sites in favour of other ‘social media sites’ . . . which is showing where the main aim will be focused in the next few years. The Xbox as we know it, a gaming platform, will become a secondary issue, with the unit becoming a primary media centre for the whole family and social media outlets.

This was one of Bill Gates prime aims a few years ago. He wanted to see the Xbox become the Set-Top-Box for the living room of the future.

The Official Press Release just released Post CES Keynote

We love starting the New Year out with a bang! On the eve of CES 2010, Steve Ballmer and Robbie Bach announced in Microsoft’s keynote address that 2009 was a great year for Xbox and 2010 will be the biggest year ever in Xbox history.

In 2009…

  • Xbox sold more than 10 million consoles last year and we have now sold 39 million Xbox 360s around the world.
  • Xbox Live continues to redefine and lead social games and entertainment:
  • Xbox  LIVE enjoyed its biggest week ever at Christmas time, with a new member joining every second.
  • Xbox LIVE saw record peaks of more than 2.2 million people using the service at the same time.
  • The addition of new social features like Facebook, Twitter and 1080p instant on movies has been a huge success with nearly 10 million members utilising entertainment content on Xbox LIVE.
  • Over 1 million new friend connections have been made since the launch of Facebook on Xbox LIVE.

For 2010…

1) As announced during the keynote, “Project Natal” will be hitting living rooms this holiday (2010).  “Project Natal” – which will work with every Xbox 360 – ushers in an entirely new category of games and entertainment, turning YOU into the controller.

2) 2010 will deliver our biggest line-up ever of exclusive blockbuster releases.  Kicking off the first-half of the year with back-to-back Xbox 360 exclusives like Splinter Cell Conviction, Crackdown 2, Mass Effect 2, and Alan Wake.  Our holiday line-up of games includes the highly anticipated Fable 3, followed by Halo Reach, which is expected to be the biggest title of 2010.

3) With Xbox LIVE, we’re changing the face of social entertainment.

• A new Xbox LIVE experience, “Game Room,” will be the ultimate destination for reliving the glory days of the classic 1980s arcade. “Game Room” will offer a library of 30 original arcade and console classics including “Centipede®,” “Asteroids Deluxe®,” and “Super Cobra,” which are shown in their original cabinet designs.  Buy once and play on both your Xbox 360 and Windows-based PC.

  1. “One big thing that is evident from the show is, that Microsoft’s main aim is now focusing on Social Media and the family living room, rather than Gaming via the Xbox and Xbox Live”
    huh, funny thats why i got rid of my 360.

    i really am worried about the 360 this year, besides crackdown 2 there is not 1 game on the 360 that i want.
    compare that to the ps3, PSP or the PC.

    i mean on the ps3 theres heavy rain, GOW 3, mod nation racers, MAG, GT5.

    PC theres splinter cell conviction, mass effect 2, crysis 2, RAGE and half life 2 epp 3.
    last 2 being a hopeful guess, i doubt they will make it this year, but positive thinking!

    PSP theres the duke nukem game, socom fire team bravo 3, fat princess.

    compare to only crackdown 2 on the 360.
    i mean whats happened?
    back in 2006, 2007 they had really good exclusives coming out of the wazoo!
    now theres nothing, its almost like there banking on natal bringing in all the sales, and there not interested in big exclusives any more.
    i sold my 360 late last year because i was barley using it besides every once and a while for the GTA IV DLC but thats about it.
    and looking at what there offering for this year i really cant see myself buying one ever again.

    If MS want people to buy there system they need to start releasing some really good exclusives on there system ONLY.
    who is going to go out and buy a 360 when you could play the games on your PC, and there better on PC because of easier controls and several graphical settings and options.
    spend $500 and get inferior version.
    or spend $100 and get the superior version.
    i know which one im going to choose, and im sure 90% of people will too.
    its just logical, why spend 500 bucks and get the inferior version when you could spend 100 and get the superior version?
