  • Sony Calls Bungie Deal And Multi-Platform Plans "Great For All Gamers"

    If you haven't heard, Activision and Bungie are working together. As part of the new deal, Bungie said it's expanding into mulit-platform development. So far, the studio hasn't named which platforms it's looking at, but given the company's tech-happy games, PlayStation 3 seems very likely. Obviously, this news makes Sony very happy. The company...

    Microsoft isn't going to publish Bungie's next intellectual property, Activision is. Your mind might have melted a bit, but don't worry, the rest of the industry is still reeling from it, too. What's behind Bungie's decision? The studio should be making the rounds with the press this morning to explain themselves, but Bungie released a brief...

  • Halo 2 Refuses To Die, Gamers Still Playing Over Xbox Live

    You think you know dedication? You don’t know dedication!...OK. Maybe you do. But still. There’s a group of Halo 2 fans that are currently refusing to finish the fight despite Microsoft pulling the plug on the original Xbox Live service last week. The devoted gamers have had their systems on and connected for over a week, and while...

  • Xbox Live: In Memoriam

    Microsoft plans to pull the plug on the original Xbox Live service at some point today, but already we can't help but miss our good friend. Back when we were young, it taught us how to play socially with others yet allowed us creative freedom to sound like robots when we wanted to verbally assault someone in-game with impunity. You were good...

  • Bungie Won't Rule Out More Halo Games, But They're A Long Ways Off

    It would be insane for Bungie Studios to categorically rule out working on another Halo game after Halo: Reach is released later this year on Xbox 360. Even though internal Microsoft developer 343 Industries is not-so-secretly working on whatever's coming after Halo: Reach, it's always possible Bungie could come back to Halo. The studio is...

  • Soon, You'll Be Able To Have More Than 100 Xbox Live Friends

    Microsoft is tired of answering this question: when can I have more than 100 friends on Xbox Live? The answer is soon. Microsoft made the most significant move in this direction yet, announcing the dismantling of the original Xbox Live servers. On one hand, unless Microsoft develops an interesting alternative (say, a downloadable version), Halo...

  • Bungie Says Halo: Reach's Story Will Be More Akin To Halo 3: ODST

    Starting with Halo 2, the complicated mythology took hold of the story in Halo games. Bungie, in my eyes, successfully reigned in the problems with that path in Halo 3: ODST, which allowed you to enjoy a Halo story without being left out because you haven't read a Halo encyclopedia, too. According to Bungie, that's going to be the approach for...
