According to a thread on their forums, Bungie has calculated that there have been more deaths in the Halo 3 campaign than there are people living on Earth right now. Yes, we're serious. Bungie says that 6,719,996,560 characters have been killed in the Halo 3 story campaign since launch day, and the population of this planet is estimated to be 6,705,066,871. Congratulations ladies and gentleman, this is a milestone in the history of gaming. Good job soldiers, reward yourselves with some Rumble Pit with swords.

It seems that Grand Theft Auto IV's reign of terror over the Xbox Live leaderboards is over. As people finish the game, they are going back to Call of Duty 4 and Halo 3.

Maybe the GTA IV multiplayer isn't all it's cracked up to be?

Did you go back to CoD4 or Halo 3?

Microsoft has confirmed that they are hiring a slew of programmers and designers for a non-Bungie Halo project, specifically, a Peter Jackson Halo game.

“A Peter Jackson-helmed Halo project was announced at X06 in Barcelona,” said a Microsoft spokesperson. “Since then, Microsoft Game Studios has been hard at work collaborating with Peter Jackson and Bungie on the development of that project. At this time, it’s necessary to grow the internal team to keep pace with development. Bungie will continue to remain involved in multiple aspects of the Halo Universe with MGS.”

The company is looking for a Creative Director, Producer, Game Engineers and more to “help develop a new experience in the Halo universe.”

We wrap up our Halo 3 Legendary Map Pack videos with "Ghost Town". This asymmetrical map takes a little getting used to, but works extremely well for Slayer game types.

Team Rockets is also fun, but we aren't quite sure why Team Snipers is an option on this map. Check out the footage and remember, don't teabag and drive.

The second map in the Halo 3 Legendary Map Pack is "Avalanche". This vehicle-heavy map is great for Big-Team objective game types like Capture the Flag and Bomb.

Control of the laser at the back end of the map is key and you'll need teamwork to get the flag back to your base.

Check out this Multi-Flag Battle Rifle CTF match where I didn't die. I also managed to snag two flag captures. Nice!

The Legendary Map Pack dropped yesterday and we booted it up at the office. What follows is the video record of my experiences getting my ass kicked on Blackout.

You see, I didn't play Halo 2 online for more than a few games. Therefore, I found myself hilariously outgunned on a map that other gamers already know.

You've been warned.
