E3: What is Halo 'Blue'?

Posted by Benjamin J. Romano

LOS ANGELES -- A post on video game news site Joystiq shows what is described as a Wal-Mart inventory listing for something called Halo "Blue," due out, perhaps, Sept. 30. So what is it? Add that to the list of questions that may be answered at Microsoft's E3 press conference in two and a half hours.

The inventory listing describes "Blue" as a shooting game, rated "M" for mature.

Earlier posts on Joystiq describe a tactical shooter more focused on than the first three wildly popular installments, and without the series' protagonist, Master Chief. The site also noted clues that Halo-maker Bungie, the Kirkland game studio that split off from Microsoft last year, was preparing a major announcement for today.

Xbox 360 Fanboy adds to the speculation about "Blue":

Will it be the rumored strategy title? Peter Jackson's Halo Project? With the game supposedly coming out this year, it could easily be a repackaged Halo 3 with bonus content -- perhaps all the DLC released thus far.

Bill Gates: His Legacy, His Future

Bill Gates

Bill Gates, who last week ended his full-time involvement with Microsoft, was often right. He made a career, a company and an industry by looking over the horizon.
