    No.
    There is no Halo DS rom,or patch or whatever.
    You have too many threads and to many questions.
    Make one thread in general console discussion,and ask a million questions.
    Also research before asking millions of questions.
    Google has better answers...sometimes...

    I wonder why it keeps coming up. How can people not understand that Halo is owned by Microsoft (Yes they kept ownership when BUNGiE left) so it will NEVER end up on DS. Despite the massive amounts of rumors, yes.

    Btw, even for the claimed to be made version, no names are every mentioned exactly, and it will never be finished (The 'beta' versions are B.S. anyway) as it can't pass copyright.

    Actually Microsoft own Rare and they are making Viva Pinata DS. Microsoft in the past have said that they are not in competition with the DS and got THQ to put out Age of Empires: Age of Kings. Another Microsoft series MechAssault has been bought to the DS too.

    In July last year Bungie's Brian Gerard and Frank O'Connor have said that Halo DS has been pitched to them but they decided not to do it.

    Its not going to happen though and I wish that people would accept that.

    That's not the one where the screens are taken from. In fact, the screens were probably photoshopped. In any case, that won't get far, even as homebrew, the dude behind it seems to be an idiot.

    Not only that but it's "Halzo DS" which seems to be a crappy remake around his son or whatever...

    the developer was never confirmed, but IGN did supply some videos of the build cart they received.
    It LOOKS like it was built off the goldeneye engine (NOT A MOD >_

    actually, I did here that the video from IGN was a joke or something? I can't remember where I saw that, but I'm almost certain that it was a faked video.

    that's just what people have been saying so they can cope with the fact they will never get to play it.

    does anyone else remember Halo's history on the GBA?

    So wait, that was actually some form of Halo then? Heh, awesome. I bet that the game would be crap on the DS anyhow. I'm not a fan of the Halo series anyway, so it doesn't really effect me haha.

    What? Halo GBA? -.-;;

    I remember some of it as I wasn't as big into flashcarts and stuff when I had my GBA, but I did attempt to keep up with the scene at the time, although mostly lurking.

    I don't think it's as much coping as it is that the lack of evidence points in that direction.
    1)No specific developer has been stated, and when one was (BUNGiE) they declined that it was them, because it wasn't.
    2)It looks too much like a mockup of another game (Goldeneye)
    3)It's quite a popular idea and has been stated since before DS days (GBA) so it wasn't an old concept, and it could easily have been used against it.

    However, the tape was probably real if IGN kept it on, goldeneye mockup or not, and with that said, it's pretty good for an attempt, but it won't happen so it doesn't matter much. The few attempts at Halo DS (Like HalzoDS) will never look that good either.

    You can do a google search for Halo GBA information.

    As for it sucking, I believe that graphic heavy FPS's probably have more of a place on the PSP, but the DS does have it's benefits (Although using the stylus dramatically cuts the buttons available)


    ===
    In anycase the thread was answered, and the answer is sadly No. I'm not a fan, but having a Halo DS would be decent.

    I don't really care if We get a Halo DS ROM or an actual game, I Don't really care for the series, I haven't Been Having fun while playing a console FPS since The Few months after halo 2's release.

    That's probably because most FPS are basically the same thing over and over again with beefed up graphics. It's rare that you see an MMORPG with something entirely different, and to be honest after playing 2~3 FPS games I lost complete taste for the genre altogether as well.


    It does indeed seem like most people loooove Halo though, so whatever, power to the player.

    I must say. . . I did like the storyline. . . but on the other hand, I read the books when I got bored [​IMG]

    I've never read any of the books (Wasn't aware of them being popular at all either o_o;), but I played mostly only the storyline. Once me and my friend finished (I'm guessing it was Halo 2 cause it had co-op campaign, although I'm not sure...), we played all of 3~ hours of multplayer and I just stopped after that.

    I'm very much so not a FPS kind of dude though, there were a few I liked, but they all get boring within an hour.

    Either way, if it was on DS it would probably stink. I found Goldeneye to be almost fully unplayable by me on DS, and not just cause of the genre, but also controls. Funny how a game that was so awesome on N64 kinda fails so hard on DS ._.;

    Call of Duty 4 for PC is a good FPS, since it got story, features, and graphics

    Yeah, it's for PC, not for NDS, since the NDS one is pretty different in terms of capabilities

    IGN were joking about halo DS in their latest nintendo podcast about how people accuse them of rendering the video/other stupid rumours/etc
    and they again repeated themselves that the cart was a proposal microsoft/bungie turned down.

    We won't get Halo DS (fortunately), Halo sucks IMO...nothing new to the FPS style. But we'll get C.O.R.E. which looks just like a Halo rip-off and it's a reality xD...DS needs decent FPS...and seems like C.O.R.E. will be one of those

    I hate shooters on consoles in general, but I love them on pc. The only 2 console FPS I liked were Goldeneye on 64 and red faction on ps2
