Halo Waypoint detailed, captured on video

With the Xbox 360 Fall Dashboard update preview kicking off today, Microsoft dropped some more details on Halo Waypoint, the Dashboard playpen for the Master Chief enthusiasts among you. The preview video – found after the break – walks you through some of the destination's functionality, notably the "career system" which will track "in-game accomplishments across multiple Halo games." Unsurprisingly, that career will be limited to the Xbox 360-released Halo games: Halo 3, Halo Wars, Halo 3: ODST, and "all Game Add-on content for those titles."

Halo Waypoint is being developed collaboratively by Microsoft's internal Halo studio, 343 Industries, and Certain Affinity, the Austin-based developer (with some former Bungie staffers) behind Age of Booty. Waypoint will be available November 5 for both Xbox Live Gold and Silver members; however, come November 26 those Silver members will have to pony up for Live if they want to keep their Waypoint access. That's a solid three weeks to determine if the exclusive Waypoint offerings – like the Nov. 7. preview of the "Halo Legends" anime anthology – are worth it.

Just goes to show how much Halo goes hand in hand with the 360.

WOW seriously just make it free MS stop leaving the silver members in the dust.. Why the hell would it be Gold only???

Soo damn stupid imo.

because most halo enthusiasts like to play the online multi-player and thus would have a gold membership? and who takes a 360 owning xbl silver member seriously anyway... they're like the smelly kid in class.

on that note, microsoft needs to just make xbl free for all people.

Microsoft wants to give something more to the Gold members so they get more bang for their buck?
