    Kotaku: The whole Halo on the DS rumor just doesn't want to die, do you see that in the cards?

    Brian Jarrard: This rumor has been circulating for a while and as you know we even saw some real life screens and assets this week. Ultimately it's up to Microsoft to decide if and when they take Halo to a different platform. That particular demo was in fact created and I believe it was an unsolicited pitch a long time ago but nothing ever came of it.

    As much as I like the DS and everything...I'd rather see Halo ported to the PSP. Controls, graphics, screen size...

    Doubt that'll ever happen, but it'd be so much better on that handheld, IMO.

    Microsoft was probably only willing to do it if it was gonna help the DS succeed against the PSP. As it turned out, the DS didn't need any help.

    Halo on DS would the absolute worst game ever. The DS is not made to play amazing games like Halo its made for more kid stuff and more user friendly games. It is never going to happen.

    Get the fuck out.

    This "Halo DS" is obviously the goldeneye engine modded to look like this, to show that it would work. If one would come out, it would use a different engine all together. MS can make a shit load of cash if it were to come out, and it would hurt Sony, who is their electronics rival. 95% chance it won't happen though

    I'm amazed that the Halo DS tech demo actually existed. I thought IGN was blowing smoke up everyone's asses with what they talked about earlier. Well, looks like I'm the one who's face is red here.

    Anyways, I don't think I care either way if Halo DS ever sees the light of day. On one hand, it'd be cool if a kick-ass Halo game hit DS. On the other hand, it'd be a shame if a shitty Halo game tainted the series. And yeah, I'm expecting comments that read "Halo was always shit.". [​IMG]

    The DS has enough graphics power to play Halo on it. If they used the MPH engine, it could work. But, nonetheless, a PSP Halo is much better... as long as they make a touchscreen for the PSP cause I can't play a shooting game without a:
    a.mouse
    b.stylus and touch screen
    c.wii-mote
    .

    Why? What's wrong with the Goldeneye DS engine? It seems fine for a Halo game. You already have dual wielding and what looks like a very decent graphics engine. Just modify it for vehicles, more players in multiplayer, and online, and you're all set.

    Because the engine is old and the graphics aren't good, and there are games with much better graphics (But I doubt Nintendo would let them use the MPH engine....)

    A "Halo DS" engine is what it needs

    I've heard from a CNN runner that Bungie is leaving Microsoft! So that means more autonomy, hopefully, and no more creative suppression.

    The official word is that Microsoft will own a minority in shares, but Bungie needs to go their separate ways to evolve. In their own words, they're like a shark, and need to keep swimming to survive. Not like a manatee. Anyway, check Gamespot's news for the whole story.
