Bland Microsoft marketing department extension magazine OXM in the US has
published a fresh prediction for the future of the Halo series, making some
startlingly familiar claims.

According to the publication Halo 2.5 is underway. But... it's underway for
Xbox 2. And yes, SPOnG is aware that the same magazine published a piece
about the non-existent Halo 1.5 for existing MS gaming hardware not so long
ago.

However, there's a great excuse behind this.

"Halo 2.5? - Okay, so the mole wasn't completely right about the existence
of Halo 1.5, but he wasn't completely wrong either. (Halo PC was essentially
Halo 1.5)"

Quite.

The magazine continues unabashed, "With Halo 2 now here, guess what? A Halo
2.5 is not entirely out of the question as an Xbox 2 launch title, and it
could be done in time for the launch (even if that is only a year from now)
by a small part of the Bungie team. It's no secret that. A) The real third
act and ending of Halo 2 was chopped to make the November 9 release date, B)
the next Xbox could use the clout that the Bungie and Halo names bring to
the table to help launch the new system, C) everyone who buys the next Xbox
would pay another $50 for Halo 2.5, and D) doing "Director's cut" of Halo 2
with new graphics, the true finale, and some new multiplayer stuff would
help the Bungie team get its feet wet on the new hardware while it works on
its first real next-gen project. It's a win-win-win scenario for Microsoft,
for Bungie, and for gamers. Maybe it's even true."

Yes, perhaps it could. For a magazine that takes more than its fair share of
swipes at Internet reportage, SPOnG would argue that OXM US might well think
twice before publishing what can only be described as rehashed thinly veiled
guesswork.

2.5 sounds stupid. They should just concentrate on downloadable content
and maps for Halo 2 and release Halo 3 when Xbox 2 debuts.

But the REAL question many of us who DO NOT use Xbox Live
is...will we be able to download this content and then use
it on our Xbox with Halo 2. Not the Xbox part Deux...but the
original version. That's what many would like to know...

I'd re-buy it if all it had was 720p HDTV support.

Well, I would agree with you, but what about their claim that Halo 3 would
not exist- Halo 2 would tie it all together. Remember that? What if Halo 2
has one or more expansions to finish it up, but still keeping it Halo 2?
They could have much more storyline and with downloadable content
potentially infinite more multiplayer goodies, but still never make Halo 3.

No its not. Why in God's name would you NOT use Xbox Live?

The only reason to NOT have it is if you live in an area with no broadband,
in which case, you should move.

Well, duh, but given the Xbox 2 is due out in less than a year, and it
took them 3 years to build a sequel to the first which wasn't exactly
an improvement over the first (other than adding live support), that's
simply not going to happen.

The premise behind the 2.5 idea is that it would be easier to port a
game to the Xbox 2 and add a level or two than create an entirely new
game and so could possibly be done in a year (or less). Even that is
probably impossible in a year, given their slowness at programming.

Actually, he didn't. Generalizations has a Z, not an S.

Well dick, do you see the quotation marks around it? That means that I was

Or if you are an idiot who thinks that there is only one place in the world
and that is the only way that other people around the world spell words.
While we may use 'z' here in worlds like "generalizations" and "civilized",
Einstein, that is not the case in the UK or Australia among other places.
