Your comments on our articles.

Can the studio that created Master Chief top its own work?

As we approach the end of the Xbox 360's life, it's easy to forget that the developer to which it owes its existence is nowhere to be seen. Having built its considerable reputation on Halo - still the archetypal console shooter - Bungie hasn't shown itself in public since the 2010 launch of Halo: Reach.... read more

I can't wait to see MMOs come to console. All the better with Bungie behind it!

Personally, I would of preferred to see this developer expanding into different genres and attempting to try new things, but hay ho, we don't know much about this new game, and it could be radically different to Halo.

Interestingly, when Halo was still due to come out on Mac, before the Xbox existed, these are the exact aspirations they had for Halo.

The halo was planned to be a persistent, open-world, where you could travel to any point. Any changes to the environment would remain if you returned at a later point. In addition, combat would consist of specialisation. You could become a pilot, or sniper, and join teams with differently skilled players - bear in mind this was 1999 when these concepts were pretty original.

Obviously for the time this was hugely ambitious. It's interesting that Bungie may finally be able to realise their dreams.
