Xbox 360 owners will be able to play and watch many of the games being shown off at E3 this week, with Microsoft and its third-party partners planning to make available several videos and demos from the show over Xbox Live.

The company plans to involve gamers around the world in its plans for the Los Angeles expo, by putting several of the playable demos and high definition gameplay videos which will be seen on the show floor up for download.

Among the titles which will be featured are a playable demo of Capcom's Lost Planet and a high definition video trailer of Epic's eagerly anticipated third person action title, Gears of War.

GamesIndustry.biz has also learned that there will be a demo of From Software's Sega-published mech action title Chromehounds on Xbox Live this week, as well as a playable - and likely to be multiplayer - demo of Atari's Test Drive Unlimited, featuring no fewer than 40 miles of road from the Hawaiian island of Oahu.

Other games from which content will be featured on Xbox Live this week include THQ's MotoGP '06, Tecmo's Dead or Alive: Xtreme 2, Sega's next-gen Sonic the Hedgehog, Ubisoft's Splinter Cell: Double Agent, and Microsoft's British-developed titles Viva Pinata (developed by Rare) and Crackdown (developed by Grand Theft Auto creator Dave Jones' Real Time Worlds studio).
