    Oh yeah, just seen that, how could you miss that?

    “The confirmation of the hirings comes days before the Tokyo Game Show, where, according to the Microsoft rep, Halo house Bungie will be making a major announcement regarding the recently-released Halo teaser video.”

    Cant wait to see this now. I am really intreagued as to what this announcement is (unless they announce that Keep it Clean is a expansion to Halo 3, for which I’ll be dissapointed unless they announce more details for it)

    And also, it’s no doubt just explianign the Halo 3 campaign, I hope Bungie also annoucne a game too though. Non-Halo.
