Halo 3: ODST, Forza 3 And More Playable at Fan Expo

By Paul Hunter

Not that we need any more reasons to attend the Fan Expo -- but try this on for size. I just received official confirmation from Xbox Canada that Halo 3: ODST, Forza Motorsport 3, Madden NFL 10 and Batman: Arkham Asylum will all be playable on the show floor.

It's great to see Madden 10 and Batman at the event, but those titles I'm less interested in since they're already on retail shelves. Halo 3: ODST and Forza 3 are a different story altogether -- those games won't drop until September 22, 2009 and October 27, 2009 respectively.

So, it looks like Fan Expo has suddenly gone from a cool gaming event to a cool gaming preview event. The weekend can't come soon enough for me.
