    Could be worse. They could've signed on with EA...

    My thoughts exactly. EA: "Ruin Everything". I'm still holding EA responsible for ruining the 007 game franchise.

    Yes, because Activision's track record with Bond games is so much better, right? Right?

    Apparently, Bungie missed the memo on this one. Do they really think this is the best move for them? Say what you will about Microsoft, but they seemed to allow Bungie all the space they needed. I don't believe the same will be said about Activision. 'Shocking' is the understatement of the year.

    So how does this affect Halo? Will MS give the franchise to another company, or does Bungie will have the right to work on it for MS?

    343 Studios now does Halo games. MS own Halo, Bungie own shit.

    This deal lets Bungie retain any new IP they create, but after the Infinity Ward debacle... welp, we'll see.

    Did 343 do ODST? I haven't played Reach, but if what I've read and seen is anything to go by, they seem to be doing a good job taking on the task.

    No, 343 haven't done anything of note game-wise at all yet. They haven't released a single title. Bungie did ODST, Bungie are doing Reach. 343 are rumoured to be pumping out Halo 4.

    I'm sure they will be fine. You know, especially how right now, on top of Reach, the buzz is GOW 3

    Neversoft and Infinity Ward would like you to leave flowers at their graves.

    EDIT: oh you meant Microsoft. Yeah, they're smart enough to have taken that Halo ball and run with it.

    Shit son! And I though Bungie was one of the few to still have integrity.

    I guess everyone has a price :/
