Halo DS: What could have been

Halo 3 is the news of the last few weeks, no doubt. But some of you may recall when Halo the First was in its pre-release days, back before Redmond locked it down as an Xbox-only title. To their credit, they knew what they had their hands on. Bungie had taken the initiative on using Halo on other platforms, including the version (screenshots above) for the DS. We want it, badly.

Yesterday, Microsoft spun off Bungie as a solo act, a move we endorse. Sadly, Gates and company are holding onto all things Halo for themselves, meaning that even though there’s been significant development of Halo for non-Xboxers, we likely won’t be seeing it.

We’re offering this news from IGN as a horrible, awful tease. Enjoy!
