During the first day of the Games Convention in Leipzig, Germany, Microsoft released a wealth of details regarding its upcoming accessories for Xbox 360 and PC, as well as a few morsels about its upcoming lineup of games.

The announced games include the civilization-building Settlers of Catan, the tile-based city-building game Carcassonne, and the Arabian-themed stock-market game Alhambra set to be available through the Xbox.
