Microsoft had us up early today for a keynote address at the Tokyo Game Show that actually lived up to its billing. Showing Japan as much respect as possible, as ever, the platform holder made the significant announcements of New Xbox Experience's release date and Halo 3 Recon, an expandalone for Xbox 360 that tells a side story.
It all happened so early, though, and so much has happened since that you may very well have missed some of it, so here's all the key announcements, leaving out the stuff we knew already.
