Microsoft Press Conference - 8:30pm PT

I always enjoy the press conferences and especially Gamespot's coverage of them. Tonight Microsoft gets things rolling (as always). My guess at what will be in the presentation:

- First Halo 3 Single-player (duh!)

- Bioshock (it is 360/Games for Windows Only)

- Project Gotham Racing 4 (they just announced there will be motorcycles in the game) along with a release date

- Footage/gameplay of Fable 2 with a possible release window

- Footage/gameplay of Mass Effect

- Footage/gameplay of Assassin's Creed

- Footage/gameplay of Splinter Cell: Conviction (360 only)

- Footage of Microsoft's RPGs from Mistwalker

- A presentation by EA with their lineup of games, announcing that NCAA and Madden are at 60fps only on the 360.

Then I figure there will be some big announcements:

- Price Cut, which is supposedly: $299 Core pack will drop to $249; the $399 Premium pack will drop to $349; and the recently released $479 Elite model will drop to $399.

- Peter will probably have a tattoo, either announcing that Rock Star is time exclusive, that Metal Gear Solid 4 is coming day and date with the PS3 version or that Assassin's Creed will be time exclusive

- Possibly some game we haven't heard of yet
