If you went to E3, you know we released the Halo 3 trailer there and officially announced what was probably the worst kept secret in the gaming world: That Halo 3 was coming to the Xbox 360 and that we are well along to making what will likely be the greatest, most epic game Microsoft has ever created – the final chapter in the Halo Trilogy.
And they’ve pulled out all the stops. The Bungie team, unlike previous versions of Halo, has been given what seems to be, a tremendous amount of time to make sure that the game exceeds expectations. Everyone knows that this is the crown – the Everest – the omega product for the XBox 360: If it doesn’t consume all of the XBox 360’s power, capabilities, and fan base, no game will. Not Grand Theft Auto 4, not Too Human, not Gears of War.
Bungie did a cool thing: They’re not just building a historic game… they’re documenting the creation. This is the first of hopefully what will be many insights into the Halo 3 development process. They explain what the heck happened in the trailer (which was very interesting to me considering that I didn’t understand everything) and they even show clips of stuff that WASN’T in the trailer.
