X06 Announcements Leaked (?)

With X06 just round the corner (Wednesday 6pm GMT) the internet is already buzzing with what key announcements will be unveiled at the show. So much so that there has been some leakage! If this is all true then Xbox 360 gamers are in for a real treat over the next few days.Now we don't want our readers to be spoilt with the kind of announcements that are planned (again if this is true of course). But we know most of you will not resist the temptation of what could be appearing at X06. So here goes with the spilling of the beans...

Announcements:

Gears of War presented in single and multiplayer modes, playable at X06.

Price of the HD DVD drive to be €150 and available in Europe on 1st December with a USA release date of November 24th at a cost of $200.

More details on 1080p, with the next dashboard update expected at the end of November (To coincide with the USA release of the HD DVD perhaps?)
