E3 06: Xbox Live Marketplace E3 demo schedule set

Test Drive Unlimited going up today, Lost Planet online tomorrow, MotoGP 06 revving up on Thursday.


LOS ANGELES--Last week, Microsoft announced it was readying a wave of new content to go online during its Electronic Entertainment Expo-synchronized week of free Xbox Live. It promised a "flood" of new game demos and trailers, leading some very hopeful fans to think that maybe, just maybe, the week might see a trailer or demo of the next Halo game.

While the trailer jury is still out on that one, Microsoft announced today its demo schedule for the week. Today, Xbox 360 owners can download a sample level of Atari's Test Drive Unlimited, which will feature a racetrack on one of the Hawaiian Islands.

Tomorrow, the much-anticipated demo for Capcom's futuristic actioner Lost Planet will hit the online gaming service. Its content was unclear, as Microsoft only offered a vague general description of the demo's wintry action.

On Thursday, the demo for Moto GP 06 will go live. It was also unclear what that demo contained, as it bore the following description: "Experience extreme racing with stunning photorealistic graphics and a blisteringly fast game engine."

Check back tomorrow afternoon for GameSpot's on-the-scene coverage of the Microsoft E3 2006 press conference.
