You’re not in Seville, but Eurogamer is, bringing you up-to-the-minute coverage of all the big Microsoft Xbox news from this year’s European showcase.

X02 is awash with games, both new and old, and apart from hearing what tattered prose we have to offer on the subject, you probably want to see what they all look like. Fortunately enough, just about everybody with a game to their name had a press kit to throw in our direction, and thus we’re compiling an exhaustive (well, I’m exhausted) collection of screenshots. Feel free to click through these and pass comment at your leisure, and we’ll meet back in the foyer afterwards and grab a bite to eat. Enjoy - new titles in bold. We'll add more throughout the day.
