    I can't even watch it, I get a flashing frame with audio in the background. It says "Jump In". I have tried in Firefox and IE, tried using MP10 directly by using "Open URL" nothing works. Why cant they just have a normal .wmv or flash video like everyone else.

    Wow! Very nice, might need to get myself a 360...
    Is this the last halo then? ("Finish the fight 2007")

    It's the last in the trilogy.

    But there are already two more "Halo" games announced, in the sense that they take place in the Halo universe. But Halo 3 will be the end for this story arc.

    The other two:

    A Halo RTS made by the dudes who brought us Age of Empires. (http://www.halowars.com/)
    A Halo "game that's more like a movie" by Peter Jackson. (still waiting on more details about this one)

    Yeah I know, sounds like corporate whoring to me too :( I hope they don't milk Halo until it is ****.

    Yeah dude, of course I waiting for it to load. :lick:

    Navigating to the video through that link seemed to of worked. Thanks! Looks pretty cool, not a fan of the Halo series myself, but still looks really nice. (I was more interested in the CG :) )

    eeh... i highly doubt they'll end it at Halo 3. Looks nice, but i dunno if it'd be worth buying a 360 over...

    I saw yesterday when monday night football was on.
    The problem I have is that it wont look nearly like it does in the commercial.
    Still, im gonna buy an xbox for this.

    Now I can see the Halo trilogy as a movie. It could be something special. :) Oh, That commercial is sweet. :D

    i watched the 720p version on IGN.com, i thought the little shield was pretty cool, except I've never seen it used in-game. In Halo 3 perhaps?

    The shield grenade was definitely the coolest part of the video! :D
    I also signed up for the Spring '07 multiplayer beta last night. That should be interesting.

    I bet they are working on that as we speak. Halo 2 is solely for Vista, and I am sure they will use the lure of Halo 3 as well! It makes a lot of sense - and Microsoft knows how important games on Windows are to their OS's survival.
