Leipzig: Microsoft, Part 1

Check back here throughout the day for any updates on Microsoft news from the Leipzig Games Convention. There haven't been any revolutionary announcements so far, but MS is promoting two new gaming mice. September will see a reincarnation of the Intellimouse Explorer 3, this mouse featuring a 9,000 frames-per-second optical sensor with selectable normal and enhanced precision modes. In October we'll have the Habu, a laser mouse produced in collaboration with gaming specialist Razer. The Habu will have sensitivity scalable between 400 and 2,000 DPI, as well as customizable side-panels for gamers with different hand shapes. UPDATE: EA is showcasing the graphics and physics technology behind FIFA 07 for the 360, which they claim will be unlike that of any other sports game. Each player will have an independent "football brain" AI, and abilities and animations will be dictated by biomechanical simulation, rather than a combination of pure stats and pre-recorded movements. UPDATE 2: Prices and dates have come out for various 360 accessories, such as the Xbox Live Vision camera and the Wireless Racing Wheel. The Wheel may be of special interest, because it's supposed to ship in November with a limited, force feedback-enabled version of Project Gotham Racing 3.
