Microsoft continues Bringing it Home promotion on first day of X06; more than a dozen trailers and Halo Wars theme, gamerpics also offered.


Entering the second week of its Tokyo Game Show-X06 "Bringing it Home" promotion, Microsoft released a slew of new content on Xbox Live, spearheaded by tie-ins to games announced during the X06 media briefing and a demo for the Sonic the Hedgehog game.

However, once the media briefing got going, those offerings were joined by a new Xbox Live Arcade Doom game, a dozen new trailers, and a new picture pack and theme for the just-announced Halo Wars.

The full list of new trailers on the Xbox Marketplace include looks at Assassin's Creed, Banjo-Kazooie, Bioshock, Blue Dragon, Call of Duty 3, FIFA 07, Halo Wars, Lost Odyssey, Marvel Universe Online, Rainbow Six Vegas, Splinter Cell: Double Agent, and Viva Piñata.

Microsoft's Bringing it Home promotion will end this Friday.
