IGN is reporting in their “Off the Record” article that Microsoft could possibly be pushing for a Halo 3 release date that coincides with the release of the Playstation 3.
From what we understand, Bungie is hard at work on, not so surprisingly, Halo 3, which will be ready day and date with the launch of PlayStation 3……… The release of Halo 3 at the precise launch of PS3 is a pure, military tactical move, similar to the PS2’s greatest lineup ever launching simultaneously with the launch of the Xbox and GameCube.
And that folks, is the reason, that monopolies are no good. There’s nothing like some good competition between companies to get them on the ball creating your favorite products a little quicker, and a little better. It’s sort of ironic that a product for Microsoft’s Xbox helps to show why monopolies are bad.
