MS: We'll "Explore Not Exploit" Halo

With a spin-off RTS game, multiple novels and an expanding range of figurines all on show this week at Comic Con 2008, Microsoft has insisted that its strategy is to "explore not exploit" the Halo universe.

Frank O'Connor, who oversees the franchise at Microsoft Games Studios, headed up the Halo Universe panel at the geek-packed San Diego event, in which representatives of Halo Wars developer Ensemble, Bungie and toy manufacturer McFarlane joined Halo novelists to discuss the future of the franchise in front of a packed audience of ecstatic fans.

Speaking to Eurogamer immediately after the session, O'Conner, former Bungie community manager, said that content so far had only scratched the surface of what is possible.

@radientflux below : lol , looks like were the only people onn plet earth to think that FF7 was a bit overrated.I think FF9 and even 8 were better than 7.

Good Luck. Hopefully they will not but some how they will

deeznuts3827d ago

Uhhh, Burger King Halo? They've already exploited it, they're just "exploring" how to do it further now. Nothing wrong with exploiting your own IP. Make that money!

StephanieBBB3827d ago

Ohhhhh so thats what it's called now... I heard Nintendo is also doing some grand "explorations" of it's franchises. *hint* *hint*

NO_PUDding3827d ago

Everyone knows it's exploitation pure and simple. I would have accused had they not brought it up.

It's not like there's much to explore in the Halo Universe it's kind of shallow.

ravinash3827d ago

potenquatro3827d ago

Well I always found the storyline to be excellent in the Halo series. Sure some of it is generic (aliens attacking earth), but underneath that there are a lot of unanswered questions about the precursors and humanity.

matchgrade3826d ago

Questions which Bungie has never even thought about until now when they're running out of ideas. I once read a magazine feature about Master Chief and his suit and from the answers Bungie gave, it was obvious they were getting every bit of Halo history out of their asses on the spot. It's just not thought out. Up to Halo 3 they've been winging it, which is why the stories and the endings suck.

I LOVE HALO!!! Give us more, as we want More!! (And to all the Haters, I'm talking about the MILLIONS of us out there who Love Halo and don't care what you think!)

We'll continue drinking the delicious Kool-Aid!!

rhood0223827d ago

The last time a large group "drank the Kool-Aid" it made national news.

dcbronco3826d ago

I own all three Halos. I loved the first. One of my favorite games ever. @ was not as good. 3 was average. When they release the next one, I'll wait to try it first. I won't spend money until I see what it 's like.

mindedone3827d ago
