Submitted by: Rooster128 @ 03:42 PM | Wednesday, March 25, 2015 | (url: http://me.ign.com...)

Halo Online will launch this spring, only in Russia. It's designed to run well on lower-end PCs. There's no campaign mode, but the game is set on a secret UNSC space station called "Anvil" where Spartans train together and test new technology.

During the upcoming closed beta, the developers will monitor and adjust gameplay, features, and the in-game economy.

There are no plans to bring Halo Online to the Xbox One.


Microsofts new studio working on halo 1 remake

Submitted by: Cik @ 02:22 PM | Saturday, December 4, 2010 | (url: http://gamer.blor...)

f you have been wondering what in the world 343 Industries have been working on, you may be in for a surprise. According to reports, the newly formed Microsoft studio has been remaking the very first Halo game.

The first Halo game titled Combat Evolved, came out on the original Xbox in all its polygon glory. Nearly a decade later it seems that Microsoft will be remaking the classic game that started it all.

This was first posted by CVG, which was reported by Games Master magazine. According to the report, the new remake could run on the Halo: Reach engine and arrive late 2012.

Previously, Microsoft indicated desires to crank out a Halo game every year similarly to the Call of Duty franchise. 343 Industries have been aggressively hiring people with recent reports of picking up 20 ex-Pandemic employees.

Halo Elite Costume: Just Wow.

Submitted by: DyTeX @ 01:05 PM | Wednesday, June 30, 2010 | (url: http://www.geekos...)

Special effects artist Pete Mander has put his talent to good use in devising this life-sized, scarily realistic costume modeled after the Sangheili, a.k.a. Elite, that you know and love so well from the Halo series. Cosplay seems like rather a cheap word to describe what Mander hath wrought; youll see what we mean when you check out the pictures and making-of video below.


Lawsuit over Halo 3's incompatibility with the Xbox 360

Submitted by: Hurricane Harold @ 03:48 PM | Thursday, November 22, 2007 | (url: http://www.courth...)

A California man is suing Microsoft and Bungie over the well-known incompatibility with Halo 3 and the Xbox 360. From the complaint:

Defendants knew or had reason to know that Halo 3 was being purchased by consumers for use on an Xbox 360

...

However, Halo 3 does not function with the Xbox 360, and to the contrary, attempted use of Halo 3 consistently causes the Xbox 360 to "crash" "freeze" or "lock up" while the game is being played.


Lawsuits are fun!


[360] Nov 21 - Dec 21 Halo 3 Mailed Free With Console Purchase

Submitted by: Evil Light Bulb @ 02:27 PM | Friday, November 16, 2007 | (url: http://www.xbox.c...)

It looks like Microsoft is satisfied with Halo 3 sales and is ready to use its 'Blockbuster' to move try and move more consoles as opposed to simply selling more copies. "You must purchase a new Xbox 360 system between November 21, 2007, and December 21, 2007, establish a new Xbox LIVE Account, then register on the promotion website on or before December 21, 2007. Hard drive, Windows Live ID, and high speed Internet access required for Xbox LIVE account." So this will be excluding the Tard Pack Arcade 360s.


Bungie Going Independent; Microsoft to Retain Equity Interest, Publishing Rights (Bre

Submitted by: OtakuMark @ 11:39 AM | Friday, October 5, 2007 | (url: http://www.shackn...)

The terms of the agreement have been relatively vague so far, though Microsoft stated it will retain both a minority equity interest in the company as well as its control of the Halo franchise and its publishing rights to further Bungie products. Unlike when the company was acquired and moved from its Chicago home to Kirkland, Washington, this shift will not result in another change of location.

Microsoft Corp. said its hotly-anticipated new videogame, Halo 3, generated an estimated $170 million in sales in its first day of release, a likely record for the games industry and a big boost for Microsoft's Xbox 360 business.

The sales for Halo 3 exceeded first-day sales of $125 million for Halo 2, which came out three years ago for Microsoft's original Xbox. The Redmond, Wash., company said more than 1 million members of its Xbox Live online game service played Halo 3 on the Internet during the first 20 hours after it was released Tuesday at midnight.

Killzone 2 Demo to go head to head with Halo 3 Beta?

Submitted by: Evil Light Bulb @ 01:30 AM | Tuesday, February 6, 2007 | (url: http://www.1up.co...)

Will Sony be attempting to counter the Halo 3 Beta with a 'mega-hit' of its own? After the controversial release of the Killzone 2 game play video it quietly slipped back 'under the radar'. Maybe we'll find out just how far $21 million dollars can go towards a possible Sony blockbuster.
