Official Halo Site Launched
9:56 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story
Microsoft has published a web site dedicated to the long-delayed title Halo, as a warm-up to the impending launch of the X-box console. The Flash-based site does not contain much in the way of new information or images, but does provide a short overview of the game and its features for those who are just discovering the game.
The site also contains two movies, but our version of Flash does not appear to hand the movie streams off to the Windows Media Player correctly. See our related article today for a method of viewing one of the two movies.
The initial appearance of this new site touched off yet another storm among the PC and Mac community, as the site says in several places that this game is "X-box only" or "X-box exclusive." For the record, developer Bungie has always promised there will be a Mac version of the game, and Peter Tamte's Destineer Studios has promised to publish said version on their Bold label. The declarations of "exclusive" are most likely intended to clarify for console gamers that the game will not be appearing on either the Playstation 2 or the Nintendo GameCube.

In any case, if you're curious to find out where Halo has ended up after over four years of development, visit the Microsoft site; high bandwidth and the latest version of Flash are recommended.
