It seems as though today's the today we find out what all the fuss has been about. If you head over to Bungie.net you'll notice that a new splash page has appeared with a countdown timer in the bottom right hand side.
The timer will run out at 3:07 GMT (just under eight hours from the time of writing) and will presumably reveal just what Bungie has had up its sleeve the last couple of months. We know it's Halo, we just don't know what kind of Halo it will be.
All will be revealed shortly. Please remain calm.
