Bungie should be publishing their own games. I'm sure you guys are choked. Bungie could be making more profit without relying on MS to publish.

It's like having to share your popcicle with a whiny little brother.

Perhaps I think different, but if a publisher gave orders to a wealthy independent company I would tell them to fuck off.

I bet Microsoft thought they'd need an ace in the hole to counter the conferences today, then changed their minds.

This is the biggest disappointment of E3. Not the shitty conferences...The lack of a Bungie announcement of ANY sort. I don't want to wait for PAX.

So on the way we have...
Halo Wars
Halo 3 DLC
Halo: Chronicles (From Peter Jackson)
"Gritty Tactical 3rd-person Shooter" Halo
And a new IP from Bungie

With any one of these things tying in to Superintendent and we hear about this Halo: Blue also possible one of the above and we get...Nothing. Fucking A.

I can't wait until Bungie is truly free from MS. And I suspect neither can Bungie.

Who do we need to send an angry email to?

I think a few thousand strongly worded emails about disappointing fans and changing allegiances might make Microso... the publisher think twice about doing this sort of thing again.

Honestly the publisher should be bending over whenever Bungie asks them to. They should be on their knees saying "I'm your bitch, do with me what you will", not pulling this shit.

I guess MS feels it doesn't need to reveal this gem at this time with Sony's and Nintendo's underwhelming conferences.

This is still retarded. *MAD*

But the question I have is why Microsoft would want to delay this and not reveal it during E3.

Maybe they are saving it for another event? Perhaps X08?

Sounds like business decision. Possibly in light of events that have happened this week and possibly to give this a showing at a later date from a business standpoint. If Bungie and MS knew this time was coming and MS cut it off, that ain't right.

Microsoft you have got a lot right this week give you that, but I know you are reading this, make this happen by morning.


Just ain't right and you know it and the fans ain't gonna be happy.

Dear Microsoft,

There is speculation that you may be responsible for postponing / canceling an announcement Bungie.net was preparing to make. ....

You have GOT to be kidding me. Who thought it would be a good idea to make an annoncement as potentially huge as this, then jerk their most loyal fans -many of whom have waited all day for this- around until the last minute.

Probably the case. They had some big guns to role out and probably wanted to keep Bungie's announcement in their back pocket for later. Of course in doing so, they completely shit on the community and the studio, who worked hard to set up a nice narrative that was building up to this reveal.

No wonder Bungie wanted their independence. Microsoft may have a lot of money, but their absolutely clueless when it comes time to work with a community.
