    This would explain why the fan-made RTS Halogen was ordered to cease production. Man, that pre-rendered trailer got my juices flowing.

    I, for one, am highly amused by this announcement.
    Halo has come full circle (it began life as a RTS game back in the late 90s before Bungie went FPS with it)

    I still remember the original Halo trailer before it became what it became. It was originally gonna be a pc game. I think I've got it on a cd somewhere.

    Cool, I will get it! Sad that all that work those guys did went down the drain though! I guess they could just modify the units a bit and create their own mod!

    Not to be snooty, but those of you with a 360 and an HD set need to download this trailer from the marketplace. It's insane in HD!

    not to be counter snooty but --
    Quicktime HD

    Windows Media HD

    hopefully this will do for console RTS what Halo did for FPS... make it not a series of comprimises and a pain in the ass to play.

    I could see it working on consoles if they do it similar to Empire at War. It didn't require a lot of building in the battles, just moving pieces.

    Not to be snooty, but if your TV is better than you monitor, as mine is , put it on you 360. Which ever works for you. Also the 360 has a new theme and picture pack for Halo Wars.

    I have been a Bungie fan since path ways. And I never remeber halo being an RTS. But I do rember pimps at sea.

    I will admit to being impressed, until I saw that Bungie was not making the game. Considering Bungie has already created the end all when it comes to RTSs with the myth series. If you have never played any the Myth series, give them a try. The AI is incredable.

    I will hold my judgement until it is released.

    Hot damn that was awesome! Hopefully the graphics will be as good as this cinematic. Though I have ot wonder why Bungie wouldn't be involved. I know they're doing Halo 3, but wouldn't they have, like, extra staff or something?
