    with that being said, any game they make can be on a sony or Nintendo console.

    Microsoft still owns the rights to Halo, so no.

    Also, the Halo DS thingy is fake (well, not really, but it's just a mod of Goldeneye DS, it isn't made by Bungie at all).

    It was a "unsolicited pitch" by Bungie.
    So they did make Halo DS.

    Bungie's not making Halo anymore, 343 Industries is. And they're owned by Microsoft.

    Seeing as how Halo is a Microsoft franchise, and Microsoft is a competitor of Nintendo in the gaming market, I really don't see this happening outside of homebrew/game mods.

    That should say enough.

    The internet is not always correct.

    Also, what Hachibei and _Chaz_ said.

    From when I first saw the video of this I knew it was a mod since I owned a copy of Goldeneye RA for DS and everything was too similar.

    But what confuses me is where the hell did it come from? How did an IGN editor get hold of it? And why was he trying to prove it was real if it was truly fake?

    People outside the homebrew scene write it off as a hack job by a DS homebrew developer. Though nothing has ever been released that looks even close to it. People in the homebrew scene say it was an actual pitch for a DS game by Bungie (Matt Casamassina's story), though how did they get the rights to Goldeneye RA from EA?

    Though now that I think of it, Rare has done similar with Diddy Kong Racing for DS but had Banjo and Conker removed from the title. I guess Bungie was trying to go a step too far trying to use EA as a publisher for Halo on DS?

    On topic though, Halo will never be for 3DS. I hope it can get something better.

    But yeah, Microsoft own the Halo franchise and Reach was Bungie's last Halo game, so no.

    Why would anyone want Halo on the 3DS? To listen to a bunch of 12 year old noobs on wifi?

    As I said, the internet is not always correct. There is absolutely no proof at all of a Halo DS. This is a mod of Goldeneye. Anyone with a bit of hacking skills can make it. And this rumour has been around for ages now, and has never been proven.

    That was how Kotaku interpreted it. It could have very well been an unsolicited pitch by Bungie, themselves to Microsoft.

    I'd believe a demo, but not a full game.

    Its stupid to think it didn't exist. The editors at IGN who tested the product (And showed off some videos) aren't exactly "hackers" I doubt they know how to set a timer on a microwave. By no means am I saying they're stupid, I'm just saying its not in their range of abilities to edit/hack a game on that level. Most home brew creators aren't even that good.

    Halo on 3DS could actually be really cool with the volume all the way down so you can't hear people complain how the shot you got on their head was bull shit.

    @SoulSnatcher-

    You do realize that IGN made up the rumor that the 3DS was as powerful as PS3 don't you? They claimed to have exclusive words from 3DS developers that it was. They've still yet to retract that statement too. Not that 3DS isn't powerful, but it's nowhere near PS3 quality. In less recent news, they initially reported that the DSi would have two touchscreens. They later changed that article to just one touch screen, but that bit of "news" is legendary.

    I'm not defending any sort of Halo DS conspiracy or anything. I know nothing about it besides that it was a Rogue Agent mod. But i did want to make it clear that IGN has reported some seriously false information in the past. They tend to jump the gun and try too hard to be the fastest and have the most exclusive news.

    To its credit though, any source can do this. Engadget jumped the gun the other day on the 3DS' specific GPU specs, despite no one knowing what they were. Now thanks to their jump, the news is viral and cannot be retracted without serious confusion.

    You forgot the sarcasm tag.

    Halo on 3DS? No thanks I'd rather have something worth porting or maybe an all new game perhaps. Renegade Kid did some good things with Dementium 1 & 2 (wasn't into Moon) and they have a knack for pushing systems so I rather see what they could do seeing that they very good with stories and gameplay ideas.
