    [news=http://news.google.com/news?imgefp=OyVUeC3jmqEJ&imgurl=money.cnn.com/2005/10/04/technology/personaltech/microsoft_xbox.reut/xbox_360.03.jpg]Microsoft held its annual Xbox party in Amsterdam on Tuesday, offering a few more hints regarding the launch lineup for November's Xbox 360 and the upcoming blockbuster "Halo" movie.

    The company announced that director Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh
    the creative team behind the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy and this fall's "King Kong" remake — will serve as executive producers for the summer 2007 "Halo" movie . Jackson's team at Weta Workshop will handle special effects, and the movie will be shot in Kong and Frodo's stomping grounds of Wellington, New Zealand.

    "As a gaming fan, I'm excited to bring 'Halo's' premise, action and settings to the screen with all the specificity and reality today's technology can provide," Jackson said in a statement. "I'm a huge fan of the game and look forward to helping it come alive on the cinema screen."

    The game was adapted for film by "28 Days Later" screenwriter Alex Garland. No cast details have been made public, but a press release from the film's co-distributors, Universal and 20th Century Fox, indicated that a director would be announced soon.

    As for the 360 announcements, Microsoft reps in Amsterdam promised four key titles for launch this holiday season: the first-person shooter "Perfect Dark Zero," the fantasy action epic "Kameo: Elements of Power," the fighting game "Dead or Alive 4" and "Project Gotham Racing 3." The company did not indicate which of the four would be available on November 22, the day the system launches in North America.

    Earlier this week publisher Electronic Arts committed to five titles for the system's launch: "FIFA," "Madden NFL," "NBA Live," "Need for Speed" and "Tiger Woods."
