Here’s what’s on hand:

The Games : Dead Rising 3, Project Spark, Kinect Sports Rivals, Fable Anniversary, Forza Motorsport 5, Ryse: Son of Rome, Battlefield 4 and other “surprises at the booth,” including games Major Nelson said he wasn’t at “liberty to divulge . . . yet.”

Starting at 10:00am and ending at 6:00pm, 30-minute demos will rotate through the following schedule:

  • Kinect Rivals – 10:00am, 12:00pm, 2:00pm. 4:00pm

Halo 4 Global Championship

The battle continues at PAX Prime with the Halo 4 Global Championship powered by Virgin Gaming at Benaroya Hall. Players will battle to claim the title of “‘Halo 4’ Global Champion” and the coveted $200,000 (USD) grand prize. Plus, Major Nelson will be hosting a live stream (that will be available on the Xbox dashboard) of the finals on Sunday from 4p-6p.

The firm will also be kicking off PAX with an official Xbox Meet Up open to the public.

    I’m thinking a release date for sure.. and maybe a free digital game for North America like the UK got with Fifa.

    Ya.. and you would have to think it’ll be before the PS4.. Nov 8 like the rumor that’s out there? Earlier perhaps?

    @2 could you imagine if it was BF, Ryse, CoD or Madden 25?

    @1 My wife hates surprises, but I haven’t met anyone else in the world who does.

    I like surprises. So I look forward to seeing what happens.

    The funny thing is I might be the one guy that would actually have preferred FIFA, lol, but if they are making the same move in NA, they are clearly going to pick a game that a lot of people are into here, and Madden fits the bill. They won’t do a game that is not family-friendly like CoD or Ryse (awesome as that would be). They will pick something that everyone will either love, or at least say “oh nice, a free game that I would actually play.”

    The only one that jumps to mind is Madden. That said, they could go NHL 14, or something more family oriented like Zoo Tycoon which has Kinect support.

    Madden would make sense for sure.. would be really cool if it was a choice from a couple though. Prolly not going to happen, just not a big player of football games…

    Of course watch the net build all this hype about a free game and then they don’t give us one lol

    @11 yeah really, that would suck, lol. I wouldn’t be devestated by that, because I understand sometimes geographic promos are necessary, but it would be nice if we got the same deal that EU gets.

    @12 games that are good and free are always welcome in my book..Hell, if they do give a free game and it is indeed Madden 25, then its one less gift I have to give my son at Christmas..LOL..Merry Christmas kiddo :P

    Wow, 12 responses and no trolling. This is nice. I hope it’s a free game too and Madden would be great. Was planning on getting it anyways so that’s money in the pocket 😊

    I just saw on facebook that they updated their cover photo to Madden 25…This could be a hint or just a coincidence.

    @14 Wouldn’t it be nice if all the threads were like this?

    I would prefer FIFA as well but thats not likely. NHL isn’t coming to X1 this year :(

    Can’t wait to see how bf4 runs on the X1.

    @16 Interesting catch.. really though.. I think if we’re getting a free game (and can’t choose) it has to be Madden after the UK got Fifa.
