    Sounds pretty sweet to have a top down map over view of a battle going on while you play to track team mates etc! was it shown in the Video? Never checked it out.

    No it wasn't shown in the video. No there's no Halo game coming to WP7. I'm just wondering if the map will be for multiplayer or single player.

    Soon along with the tagline "better with Kinect" hopefully we start seeing "better with Windows Phone" ! Exactly what's needed, and hopefully coming to more games. "The only phone with Xbox Live" needs to start being a HUGE differentiator. YEAH!!!

    pretty amazing, the realtime tracking of teammates on the phone. Not that I'm coordinated enough to play and glance at my phone.

    This is the kind of confluence needed with xbox and windows phone. Halo is a good place to start, obviously being the anchor game, but hopefully it will continue.

    I'll guess I'll be buying reach soon. I liked Halo 3, but ODST ruined the franchise for me.

    Reach actually got me back into Halo. I don't play anymore, but it was a great game, and waypoint is a nice add-on.

    I think ODST was a good addition to the franchise, and actually prefer it to Reach as you know the outcome with the latter title. Time for me to start getting back into the Halo groove.

    I have no idea what the outcome of Reach was. LOL. I do know that ODST didn't feel like a Halo game at all. Seemed like an experiment that went bad.

    Probably why I liked ODST, it wasnt the typical Halo gameplay so felt fresh. As for how Reach ended, remember Master Chief is the last surviving Spartan, and Reach was before his time. so.......

    Ruh Oh! Guess I should go pick the game up and see them get crushed!

    I asked on the Forza forum if they had anything planned for WP7, nothing. Missed opportunity for sure, imagine tuning, painting or trading on your WP7. Not too far fetched to imagine a racing game either.

    Depending how well Halo Waypoint and WP7 phones do I am sure MS will make Forza add it to their next game.

    Can't wait to try this, this sounds awesome. This is exactly what MS needs to start getting hardcore gamers into WP7. Next a Halo game exlusively for WP7 would be a really good idea but ATLAS is a start and I cannot wait to try it.

    We did an article on this too:

    As I mention in the article, I'll be getting Halo CE Anniversary Edition a week or two early, so maybe we'll post some exclusive impressions before it comes out.
