Here’s Microsoft’s 2011 Lineup For Xbox 360

Via a press release, Microsoft has slung out what it calls its “blockbuster line-up” from spring and beyond. So, are these the massive, big-hitting games Redmond’s been talking about?

Find out past the break.

So on the list, the only non-downloadable exclusive Xbox 360 game is Gears of War 3, which will release on September 20th, while the beta goes live mid-April.

On Xbox Live Arcade, however, Microsoft boasts it has the most exclusives: gory platform game The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile; action-RPG Torchlight and downloadable Kinect games The Gunstringer and Once Upon a Master.

MS even counted DLC as exclusive: Halo: Reach Defiant Map Pack and Fable III Traitor’s Keep are in there…

    man, microsoft you fail in general, i think having DLC as something thats supposedly going to make this year great for hardcore gamers is not something an xbox gamer was expecting. sony and nintendo corporates are probably just laughing in astonishment i know i am

    MS went all Kinect mental there, forgot its hardcore.

    torchlight is a console exclusive, but it has been available on the pc and mac since 2009.

    oh lord M$ you really have lost the plot!

    It’s looking that way.

    But we might get the surprise of a generation at E3.

    Just saying….

    and pigs might learn to speak German.
    possible, but extremely unlikely!
    50 bucks says they announce 1 or 2 exclusives at E3, but they will be kinect exclusives.
    there going to send themselves straight to the poor house!
    cant believe M$ managed to screw this up!
    they had sony bent over, all they had to do was keep releasing the core sequels and they would of smashed them this gen!
    but no, they had to get greedy and abandon their fanbase and try capture the casual crowd.
    biggest mistake ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
