During its keynote press conference at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Microsoft unveiled its latest lineup of downloadable titles for its Xbox 360 console, Windows Phone 7, and Windows PCs.

The publisher is leading with its second annual Xbox Live Arcade House Party on February 16 with 2D side-scrolling Konami action title Hard Corps: Uprising, to be followed by the gradual release of several other titles during a period of five weeks that will be available for instant download and play. The titles revealed by Microsoft during CES that will be part of the 2011 House Party include Full House Poker, an interactive poker game that will see users compete over Xbox Live in two-player games and 30-player tournaments; Bejeweled Blitz Live, the PopCap Games gem-matching title with a new, 16-player party mode over Xbox Live; Ubisoft’s full-HD remastered action-adventure title Beyond Good & Evil HD; and the Runic Games-developed Torchlight, coming to Microsoft’s console with revamped controls as well as new armour and quests.

The publisher also reiterated earlier announcements that both Age of Empires: Online and Fable III would be coming to Windows PCs before going on to reveal its Windows Phone 7 lineup of titles, which include: Fable III: Coin Golf, a puzzle title based on traditional British pub games that allows users to earn gold and unlock new skills and abilities that transfer back to Fable III; Game Room, with classic arcade titles Centipede, Asteroids Deluxe, Shao-Lin’s Road, Time Pilot, Lunar Lander, and Pitfall; Full House Poker; Pac-Man, which will allow users to utilise the virtual analog “Pac-Pad” controls for the Windows phone; Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer; and ngmoco’s popular Pocket God, a game about moral choices on an island full of pygmies.
