Halo 3 has sold 8 million units, never say never on MS games portable: Kim


Shane Kim, corporate vice president of Microsoft Game Studios, has claimed Halo 3 has passed the 8 million sales mark at Las Vegas conference DICE, and has also mentioned that a gaming handlheld from the company is possible but unlikely.

On the subject of Halo, he reiterated the fact that more content's on the way for Halo 3, and pointed out that the series is to expand this year with RTS Halo Wars. In addition, he mentioned the Peter Jackson collaboration announced at X06, but noteable didn't called the product's Jackson's involved with "games".

"We have a collaboration with Peter Jackson, creating an interactive series based on the universe," he said.

On the subject of a portable, he said, "Never say never," but "launching a portable device is like launching another Xbox 360... you have to really step back and ask, devoting whatever bandwidth and resources you would have to to make the Zune a multifunction device, is that really the best way to go?"

Games on Zune? That sounds like an awesome idea.
