If you've been following Xbox One news regularly, the only unfamiliar game on the list at this point should be Fighter Within. Within, announced today by Ubisoft, is a Kinect-powered fighting game. Ubisoft promises 1:1 movement tracking as players act out their characters move. The game supports both offline and online multiplayer.

"Think first, hit after: Skills are not enough to win a match, superior fighting tactics will give you the upper hand. Use your surroundings to your advantage, choose the right moves and signature attacks that will undermine your rival and finish him off with a devastating final blow," reads the official website.

Fighter Within is one of seven launch titles that's available exclusively on the Xbox One. The others are Crimson Dragon, Dead Rising 3, Forza Motorsport 5, Killer Instinct, Powerstar Golf, and Ryse.

Most of the launch titles are also being developed for the current generation. That includes the probable best-sellers Assassin's Creed 4, Battlefield 4 and Call of Duty: Ghosts. Lococycle and Zoo Tycoon, two Microsoft-published games for Xbox One, are also coming to Xbox 360. While Microsoft wants their new console to sell well, they have to hedge their bets a bit. The Xbox 360, with its tens of millions of active owners, still provides the better sales potential for software this holiday season.
