Microsoft Talks Episodic Halo Xbox 360 Series

Talking at a Microsoft-hosted breakfast at GDC, Microsoft executives Shane Kim and Chris Satchell answered questions from collected journalists and bloggers, touching on all aspects of Microsoft's current Xbox 360 strategy.

The conversation ranged over a multitude of subjects, starting with Kim's comment on some of the hardware failure problems with the console since launch. He noted: "It's unfortunate that people have had problems with their Xbox 360... we've got room for improvement on both sides of the equation - it's a top priority for us."

But the biggest news dealt with episodic gaming, since Kim confirmed that Microsoft and Bungie Studios are currently planning two different episodic gaming series for Xbox 360 with Lord Of The Rings director Peter Jackson, commenting: "Our deal with Peter is not about a film guy who wants to make video games".

It seems to me that Halo will not be leaving us anytime soon and like Mario represented Nintendo, Master Chief represents Microsoft. great news for Halo fans everywhere.

hopefully they will do something different with the franchise, there are so many possibilities which won't ruin it.

Thats a class act right there for you people. Microsoft takes notice of their problems and prioritizes them not just get one of their "big-wigs" to shoot their mouth off about how great the console is...take notice Sony.

And the part that I love is that the "episodic content" is obviously not just hot air- the Halo Wars project proves that worthwhile games are coming down the pipe with these deals.

This is good news for HALO fans ,,I myself am one of those fans but hopefully they do not take this too far.. I would not like master chief to be having episodic content every year like Madden... HALO was a "Perfect Pearl" you do not just whore out your pearl to everyone, you cherish it ... so hopefully they keep the integrity of that precious pearl intact and not turn it into a gimmick.
