Bungie composer Marty O’Donnell has said Activision is keeping its distance with the developer regarding the studio’s next big universe, saying it’s committed to “being hands-off.”

During the Halo 3: ODST panel at PAX, Bungie’s Joe Staten revealed that Fourth Wall Studios are developing a meta-game for Halo 3: ODST called “Sadie’s Story.”
Created by artist Ashley Wood and former members of 42 Entertainment, which created the “ilovebees” campaign for Halo 2, Fourth Wall’s meta-game tells the story of New Mombasa after the Covenant attack, but before the ODST arrived on the scene.
The story will follow the exploits of a New Mombasa resident named Sadie, which serves as a companion to the main narrative, which Bungie’s Marty O’Donnell compared to a radio play.
Not much else was revealed, other than some art from Sadie’s Story, including the “security camera footage” pictured above.
Sounds interesting at least.
More over on Joystiq.

Bungie audio director Marty O’Donnell reckons second hand games sales have given the Halo-maker a beating, saying that creators should get extra revenue from further sales of their products.
“It’s hard to gauge the effect of used game sales on Halo, but I’m sure it’s big,” O’Donnell said.
“Complaining about sales when you have a multi-million seller is somewhat difficult to justify, but it seems to me that the folks who create and publish a game shouldn’t stop receiving income from further sales.”
O’Donnell added that the issue would impact the ability for lesser games to survive, but that digital distribution may resolve the issue.
“It will be harder for smaller titles to be successful in the future if they can’t fully realise a return on investment,” he said.
“Eventually, digital distribution is probably going to be the way most people purchase content and hopefully developers, publishers, and retailers will figure out a system that is good and fair for both the consumer and the creators of that content.
“I don’t worry that much about the middle man: he always makes out just fine.”
