Quality not quantity

"What was that?" - Halo 3: ODST

Despite being heavily criticised for being ‘too short’ and other such nonesense, Halo 3: ODST has managed to sell an impressive 2.5 million copies since it’s release a couple of weeks ago. The news comes from USA Today via Eurogamer who sadly labeled the game as an expansion pack. We maybe getting into a bit of a grey area of gaming as to what exactly ODST is but in my opinion, it’s far from just an expansion. Grizzle aside, Halo in all it’s forms has made a sweet $125 million and collectively sold over 27 million units. Not too shabby then. Frank O’Connor of Bungie fame, commented on the future of Master Chief in the USA Today feature saying “I think that (his) fate, Cortana’s fate and the identity of that *SPOILER* giant, dark planet at the ending (on the game’s hardest skill level) are probably big mysteries that would be irritating if they were just cliffhangers.” To true Mr O’Connor so let’s forget all this secrecy and just announce another Master Chief game – doesn’t need to be Halo 4 necessarily. “We do have a plan that goes out at least six years,” said O’Connor “Eventually, it will become very apparent that there is a plan for the way the canon all ties together and the way the comic books and the novels all tie together.” Yes, that’ll do nicely.
