First Xbox360 announced some new game title , which is cool but the first big announcement is 360 is going to take on Wii:

At the Xbox 360 E3 Media Briefing, Phil Spencer announced the details of the launch of Xbox 360 Kinect. Kinect will launch on November 4th with all of its motion tracking glory.

Also announced was that Kinect will also launch with 15 games, available from both Microsoft, Ubisoft and other third party publishers.
