Bungie: So Our Game's Called Halo - Halo Ten Year Anniversary

100°
265w ago - Ten years ago on July 21st, 1999: Macworld, New York. Apple's iCEO Steve Jobs yields the stage for a brief but soon to be memorable moment to Bungie co-founder Jason Jones.

Jones, looking a bit nervous, steps into the fore, shakes Jobs' hand and begins quite simply:

"So our game's called Halo..."

To quote: Internally, the title was known as Blam! - a moniker bestowed when Jones couldn't bring himself to use the original working title, Monkeynuts, in front of his own mother. Whatever the name, this is the first time the public has laid eyes on the project.

To write the sum of a decade is a monumental task. Bungie's history is encoded into the games we've made and defined by the men and women who've worked inside the studio's walls - people who have in many cases become a family. And of course we've also been shaped, inspired, and downright awestruck over the community that's followed alongside.

To say thank you for a decade is even more of a monumental task. We say it anyway. Thank you for more than ten years of community involvement, contribution, and support.

Thanks for the passion, for the letters, for the ravenous support (and defense) of us online, for pouring through our stories, for getting to the farthest...

Analyst: Two New GTA IV DLC Episodes Due Next Year

100°
268w ago - Take-Two and Rockstar are expected to release two brand new downloadable episodes for Grand Theft Auto IV in fiscal 2010, and release GTA V the following financial year.

According to analyst Todd Mitchell, who told GamesIndustry.biz (linked above) that following the release of Xbox 360 exclusives The Lost and the Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony, two all-new episodes are due - possibly across both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 platforms.

To quote: "I would expect that there would be two more pieces of downloadable content for GTA IV, that's what has been indicated to me, although formats are unsure. It's been indicated to me to me that would be the case," said Mitchell, of Kaufman Bros. Equity Research.

Mitchell also stated that he's expecting Grand Theft Auto V to be released in the 2011 financial year, and there's also the possibility of a new GTA title for the PlayStation 2 next year.

"Coming out of E3 there was no commitment to a new Grand Theft Auto, and I think that's because of Rockstar's track record with delivering on time," said Mitchell.

"Of the three, I'm least confident in saying for sure there will be a new GTA for PlayStation 2, but the track record shows that PSP titles have been repositioned [on PS2]," he said, referring to the recent announcement...

Along with it comes this quick 1 year anniversary video put together showing the progression of the HBB versions.

The ending seems familiar




 

Why Sony's E3 Conference Took Home the Crown This Year

100°
272w ago - Here's the deal: content is all that matters in this industry. Without the content, which means we're talking about software, all you have are three really big paperweights.

Granted, many more factors have come into play in the new generation, as systems like the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 are fully functional and massively capable multimedia devices. But at the end of the day, we own our systems so we can play the games we love, and as I've said many times before, Sony's software lineup greatly outstrips Microsoft's.

Yes, one can claim that with the announcement of a Metal Gear Solid for the 360 and Project Natal, that alone might top Sony's conference in terms of a "wow" factor.

But what are we really talking about here? The PS3 is getting Rising, too, and let's not forget that the PSP is also getting Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.

Furthermore, Sony's motion tech was every bit as impressive as Microsoft's in my eyes, and I'm not the type of guy that puts much stock in motion sensing.

The PSP Go! wasn't a huge announcement in my eyes, but it was big, and the exclusive lineup that continually pleasured our senses during Sony's conference was unmatched. I want Alan Wake as much as anyone and I buy every Halo they make (provided it's not a strategy game), but those...
