"The original trilogy of Halo games is as good a series of games as there has ever been, possibly even rivaling the Final Fantasy and Metal Gear Solid franchises. But the recently released Halo Wars and forthcoming Halo 3: ODST could signal an over-reliance on Halo's good name on the part of Microsoft.
This generation's console war is far from over. The Nintendo Wii probably won't get caught, although I do think sales will slow down a lot, possibly sooner than we think. Second place, on the other hand, is still up for grabs, with a few more years left yet for the PS3 and Xbox 360 to fight it out for the runner-up spot."
