Electronic Arts has announced that it will showcase five Xbox 360 launch titles at Microsoft's X05 event in Amsterdam today and tomorrow, and has named three more titles in development for the platform.

The five launch titles are Need For Speed: Most Wanted, FIFA 06: Road to FIFA World Cup, NBA Live 06, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 06 and Madden NFL 06. All five will be available alongside the console in the US from November 22nd and in Europe from December 2nd.

EA also stated that The Godfather, Battlefield 2: Modern Combat and Burnout Revenge remain in development for the Xbox 360 as previously stated, although release dates have yet to be confirmed. GamesIndustry.biz understands that Burnout Revenge is a port of the PS2/Xbox title released last week with Xbox 360-exclusive content additions, and should be released in early 2006.

EA Executive Vice President and General Manager of International Publishing Gerhard Florin called X05 "a great moment for us". "The visual richness and engaging gameplay are just two of the many reasons that gamers all over the world have something to look forward to this autumn with the Xbox 360 launch."

X05 takes place in Amsterdam today and tomorrow (October 4th/5th) and is expected to see Microsoft cement its launch line-up of between 10 and 15 games for Xbox 360, with new software announcements also on the cards.
