This is great news. A great series and a great director.

Indeed. He is one of the people that can be wholeheartedly trusted to deliver on this idea. Perfect pairing.

Best of all, because it's a series, everyone wins - Xbox One or PS4, Spielberg is timeless.

I don't know but I felt like this was so out of place it just felt so awkward but whatever. ;)

Spielberg isn't directing, he stars as Master Chief.

@valleytime...What makes you think this will be on network tv?...this is an exclusive series to be viewed only on xbox one.

I've been saying this as soon as they started talking exclusive programming content.

I would have been happy with forward unto dawn as a series, it sounds like MS is taking this seriously. Good to hear.

Halo + Speilberg. I'm sold.

@optimus

Never said it would be on network television - with all of the streaming sites and torrents that exist, this series can't avoid becoming become available to people who don't own an Xbox One. It's just inevitable, which, while illegal, makes me happy that anyone with even a remote interest in Halo will be able to enjoy it. It's an enjoyable mythos that more people should enjoy.

You guys are seriously excited for a Halo TV show? Really? Wow. Now I've seen everything.
FriedGoat  +   799d ago
shame that was the worst reveals i have ever seen. I already have a TV......
DonFreezer  +   799d ago
Worst than Diablo 3 on the ps4 reveal?Not by a chance.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   799d ago
I don't think people understand how epic that is actually.

Spielberg isn't directing and he was reading a paper.

The only reason to watch for me is because Spielberg usually doesn't get involved in too much crap.

He could turn an ok series into something watchable.

I'm just not as into Halo as I was even 2-3 years ago though so it doesn't excite me enough.
Utalkin2me  +   799d ago
Yeah...you pay 10 bucks a month to access Xbox1 Tv channel to watch...How nice
OlgerO  +   799d ago
great news indeed, I can stream this right over the internet from my PS4s browser
Welcome2Die  +   799d ago
Im preeeettty sure I'll be able to watch this on my future PS4 lol

TV..TV..TV

I think Xbox is indeed no longer competing with Sony and Nintendo. No gameplay footage at all. Its no longer a gaming console.

Halo has always had some of the best live-action content. Trailers especially.

They seem to have missed the mark with this reveal though.. exclusive CoD DLC really? Exclusive madden content really?

Hope E3 has more

Edit:
CoD: Ghosts gameplay snippets.. slight graphical jump it seems

He needs to do the movie...still, the biggest announcement at the Xbox conference was about a tv series? lol, still, I'm a huge Halo fan so this pleases me, and Steven Spielberg will no doubt do a brilliant job.
Jek_Porkins  +   799d ago
What a great pairing! I like this idea more than a movie, because they'll have greater creative control over this as a series. Loved Forward Until Dawn.
hazelamy  +   799d ago
a tv series is good, because they can spend more time exploring that universe, but bad because tv series invariably have a lower budget than movies.

still, i'm eager to see the end result.

and i just hope this doesn't fall through like the movie.

Megaton! Gold reuped

Is it too romanticized for me to picture something akin to Halo 2's 'Starry Night' trailer only fleshed out TV show form?
GABRIEL1030  +   799d ago
oh boy the war is over before it begins, too easy for Sony, the new xbox one is focused in Tv content, Halo TV series WTF! :(
LOL_WUT  +   799d ago
Like how is this supposed to make someone want to buy a Xbox 0ne?
JohnApocalypse  +   799d ago
This sounds allot better then doing a movie
Hooby  +   799d ago
The halo universe is almost too big to do a movie. Imagine all the plot lines of LOTR but with a 3 decade war instead of however many months its lasted. You'd need to make 8 movies.

Band of brothers meets game of thrones is what I'm hoping for, as far as quality.
GABRIEL1030  +   799d ago
I want to play like Master Chief or Noble six, not see Sci Fi Tv shows. :(
Hooby  +   798d ago
What's stopping you? Not like there being a tv show will impact the games.
