Bungie’s finally got around to announcing Halo 3, which is probably about the only reason I can think of at this point of wanting an Xbox 360 over a Wii (no, Sony doesn’t even bear cosideration at this point). Thankfully, the game won’t come out until 2007, which probably means sometime in 2008 (if we’re lucky) This means I have time to think about it and stick to my plan.
The setting is a Covenant-controlled Earth with some huge thing that draws the attention of a lot of Covenant ships and the Master Chief. It also sounds like Cortana is a little more than just a construct this time around; according to her “this is the way the world ends”.
Do check out the trailer – it’s purty.
