Some News on the ODST front, it doesn't really deserve its own thread...

Oh Noes!

Microsoft Defends ODST Price Hike
'Project has grown more ambitious.'

UK, June 12, 2009 - Microsoft has responded to the price hike for Halo 3: ODST that was revealed at last week's E3, saying that the game is much more ambitious than previously envisioned, and now is more than just a Halo 3 expansion.

Shortly after Bungie's latest first broke cover last year, there were claims that the game was not going to be a full price affair owing to the campaign's three to five hour running time.

However, Halo 3: ODST is now being listed as a full-price game on several retailer's sites. 'At the time of those statements, the overall scope of Halo 3: ODST was not yet finalized, and since then the project has grown increasingly more ambitious' Microsoft told Joystiq in response to the swelling.

'We believe this standalone experience is much more than just an expansion,' they continued, 'Halo 3: ODST provides a new campaign from the point of view of an entirely new character. Combine that with three new multiplayer maps, the entirely new cooperative mode called Firefight, and the complete Halo 3 multiplayer collection on a standalone disc, we feel this is a good value and tremendous addition to the Halo franchise.'

Our look at Halo 3: ODST's campaign at last week's E3 certainly suggested that the game will be worthy of its full-fat price-tag, though we'll have to reserve final judgement for the game's release this September.
If it comes out at full price, would you really be surprised? Pissed off maybe...

They're bloody lucky its Halo... And that I'm a mindless follower of the series

*shakes fist with drooling slack jaw and Hypnotised eyes*

Man, I paid $50 something Dollaroonies for the 2nd Halo, totally worth it....if ODSt is gonna be ground-breaking in terms of halo-ness, well then I'll pay quite a bit. I still play the 2nd Halo to this day, literally, I just played it last night and Halo:CE. Great games, great games. First I got to play 3 and finish the fight....

Wow...just wow....

If Halo:Reach is anything like the book, I'll be overjoyed. I'm definitely shopping at gamestop for the Sgt Johnson code. That guy is awesome!

Oh I've so gotta get that game now. Shame it's coming out in the same month as Modern Warfare 2 and Assassins Creed 2 though.

SWEET! Halo rocks and both Halo 3: ODST (still in the time of Halo 2 AND Halo 3) and Halo: Reach look cool.

Halo 3: ODST comes out the day after my birthday. So thats something to look forward to.

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

R.I.P. Uncle Lee. You will be greatly missed by us all. We will see each other again some day.

the gamestop thing is true. l'm not guaranteed on this but the Controller might be the same as the halo 3 one with a little model with it....

Haven't heard much about ODST apart from it being halo through the marines... hopefully something like Rainbow siv vegas style squad based...

If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.

And as I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I will have no fear For I am the scariest mother f*cker in that goddamned valley!

Damn nature, You Scary!!!
