Amid all the hubub of its E3 press briefing, Microsoft has quietly revealed the line-up for this year's Summer of Arcade promotion. Though release dates and prices are still unannounced, we know the five games include Tony Hawk's return and a Kinect exclusive.

Phil Spencer told Spike TV (via Giant Bomb) that the line-up consists of Hybrid, Deadlight, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD, Wreckateer, and Dust: An Elysian Tail. Wreckateer is a first-party Kinect game with a resemblance to a Angry Birds. It recieved a stage demonstration during Microsoft's conference, showing some different projectile types.

      So Microsoft spent most of their press conference actively NOT talking about games...

        On the other hand Sony talked mostly about games and both presented 4 exclusive IP's I think. Sony had Last of Us, Beyond two souls, god of war and battle royal, microsoft had Gears, Halo, Ascend and Forza so all in all it seemed like they talked about the same number of games first and third party. Anyway since Sony has more first party devs I guess they're mostly focused on PS4 launch titles, Microst did also have to answer the second screen question.

        They're making a big play for being the connected media box in the living room. De-emphasizing games in their conference obviously makes sense for someone, I guess I'm just not the audience for them anymore. As long as games keep arriving, I'm fine wid dat.

        Yes but because it was an Xbox Live conference more than an Xbox conference.
