184w ago - Microsoft's internal Halo studio, 343 Industries, is working a new Halo game.
And not just another Halo game, a Halo game for the "next generation Xbox platform" -- hopefully Microsoft doesn't consider a Natal-enabled Xbox 360 to be a next-gen platform.
To quote: A job listing on Gamasutra.com reveals that a level designer with at least one AAA game under their belt and a great amount of Halo knowledge can find a new home in the company's Redmond WA facilities where they can design and build levels for this "next big project."
"Work with our top first-party development partners to help ship a great first-party line up for next generation Xbox platform," the job ad reads. No information about the actual game is given.
190w ago - The CNET article (linked above) entitled "A Halo Release That Will Be Playable on the PS3" is rapidly making Internet headlines today, however, it's a bit misleading.
If you consider watching a Halo movie as 'playing' it on the PS3, then yes it'll be possible next year.
For the rest of us, Blu-ray.com has announced that the movie will be coming out on Blu-ray disc, meaning that we'll simply be able to watch it on Sony's PlayStation 3 console.
To quote: "The announcement was made at the 2009 Comic-Con in San Diego. The series will be available for download via Xbox Live this fall. According to Blu-ray.com we can expect to see this on Blu-ray sometime in 2010, so there will finally be a disc labeled Halo that will play on the PS3 for all the Halo fans.
However, since the Xbox 360 doesn't support Blu-ray, it makes you wonder if Blu-ray is in the 360's future? Or maybe the next-gen Xbox?"

197w ago - There has been a lot of talk about video games making their silver screen appearances, however, the latest videogame-based movie Halo has officially been put 'on hold' according to Microsoft.
To those who may be looking forward to the movie, 'on hold' would definitely be better than 'canned' right? The Halo movie has long been talked about, and yet pertinent details about the movie have yet to be revealed.
A Microsoft spokesperson told Kotaku (linked above), to quote:
"We're glad there's still a lot of enthusiasm in the entertainment industry surrounding the idea of a Halo movie.
That said, the Halo feature film remains on hold as we focus on projects like Halo 3: ODST and Halo: Reach."
