Crapload of Games for the next Xbox

FableFable 2, Halo 3, and Project Gotham Racing 2 are all in the works for Xbox 2(/Xbox 360/Xenon/whatever). The recent interview with Shane Kim confirms some tidbits that were previously just a assumption in my head. For starters, he practically says they will continue those series.

Another, which was apparently stated at GDC, is that Microsoft will not be raising the price of their Xbox games. This is good for the consumers, of course (yay!), but brings up an issue that will bother Microsoft in the long run. Microsoft cannot run on money made from Windows forever. They have to start making a profit with the Xbox before long. While they finally made an net profit at the end of last year, this is compared to 3 years straight of losing money.

However, if neccessary, good ol' Bill Gates will fund the project with his own money. So I shouldn't worry.
