This is the kind of Marketing Insanity Halo is falling into.

Still, this is one of the most retarded marketing descions since new Coke.

Have you not heard about the Hoover Vacuum company giving away free plane tickets with their vacuum cleaners? They had to keep the lines running 125% 24-7 to keep up with demand, and charter entire planes...

And then there's the DeLorean.

But hey, if ANYBODY should have produced the long anticipated Halo sets, it should have been LEGO.

3) halo is getting a worse name for every new thing that comes out with it's name on it.
4) i say we write the companies to stop destroying halo when they think they are helping demands to public cause they are really destroying it.

Ah Microsoft. Putting the 'M' into milking.

You're doing George 'Franchiseaside' Lucas proud.

but George Lucas made Starwars up...

so he can do what he wants, (but that wasn't the best thing to do)
while MS didn't make Halo, they just bought it. (or did they help make it? I doubt they did.)

He's almost single handedly destroyed his own creations.

First Star Wars with those god awful prequels and then that joke of a Indiana Jones movie.

He really should have left them alone.

Bungie came up with the idea, Microsoft now owns the IP and the control the franchise.

You know they're there's a problem if the original creators of the brand are on the way out. They must know their original vision is getting fucked up.

Part of me is glad that Halo 3 : ODST is the last Halo game by Bungie, and after it's release Bungie will wash their hands of it.

Hopefully. It's sad though to see such a good series die. Perhaps they will be clever and make Marathon it's own IP, even while it's the sequel to Halo?

From certain points of view.

I have sad feeling after ODST, I'll lose interest in Halo, as with Bungie gone and Microsoft driving it into the ground, I'll probably move on to better things.

A shame really.

I estimate that I won't be done with the prequel to Isolation for the next two years, so I'll keep watching.

Personally, all my hopes for the Haloverse (And Star Wars, and Indiana Jones, and Terminator) rest on my acquisition of a time machine.

Halo 2 wasn't that bad, and Halo 3 was still decent. CE was still pretty awesome though... if they would give it a new coat of graphics I bet it would be a major competitor with modern games. Just add a few things like a map maker and extra multilayer maps/gametypes and you'd have one of the best games ever made in the history of gaming (right next to pong, galaga, CNC, Half Life, and Portal).
