It is a big week for the gaming industry as E3 represents the premier location to make any gaming related announcement for the entire year.

Halo 4 will continue on with Microsoft's flagship exclusive and this announcement shouldn't come as a surprise to many as Microsoft is always looking to build upon the Halo 4 brand to retain customer loyalty.

A remake of the original Halo has also been confirmed by the leak. Previous rumors suggested the development of a remake, and with 2011 being ten years since its original release, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary will be a welcome re-release for long-time fans of the series.

The other fronts that Microsoft will be talking about later today is the Xbox will be bringing Voice Search to Xbox Live. This new feature will make it easier to navigate the platform which can be a bit cumbersome due to all the features built into the Xbox platform.

Finally, Microsoft will be showing off Kinect Fun labs will which be a welcomed edition to the Kinect platform.
