XBox 360 Unannounced 'AAA' Exclusive Confirmed for E3 2009

297w ago - Today we received confirmation of sorts that at least one big surprise is due for this year's E3 conference.

Microsoft's E3 strategy for media involves a run of four behind-closed-doors demos which you need to opt-in to blindly prior to the event.

The nature of what is behind these doors is kept secret you see, although in some cases you don't have to be Professor Fink to work out what they are. It's a fair bet that Halo: ODST, for example, takes up one of those slots, but what of the other three? Alan Wake maybe?

Rumor: Rare Whipping Up Two AAA XBox 360 Games This Year

There are strong indications of one being a first person shooter (read Perfect Dark) and the other an online brawler (Killer Instinct 3).

Both games are expected to be announced by E3 2009.
