SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: October 15, 2012

Welcome back to Monday everyone - we've got a heaping helping of news to recap, so let's dive right in. Today we found out that Apple's manufacturing partnership with Samsung may not last much longer, and that the Google Nexus 7 might just be the best-selling Android tablet ever (which, given its immense popularity, doesn't surprise us in the least). One Walmart store has its shelves fully stocked with copies of Windows 8, and this afternoon, we have reason to believe that a new, slimmer iMac may be in the pipeline.

Halo 4 pirates feel the wrath of Microsoft’s banhammer

Halo 4 will definitely be one of the biggest games of the year, so it really isn't much of a surprise that some Xbox 360 owners are eager to download a pirated version of the game that popped up on torrent sites over the weekend.

In other words, you might want to think twice before taking advantage of those Halo 4 torrents.

This word comes from Xbox's official feed in which they also say they "highly reccommend" the hard drive option for those seeking out a fully "optimal" experience.

Why Halo 4 Is the Most Anticipated Game of 2012

Why Halo 4 Is the Most Anticipated Game of 2012

Looking at the rest of the year, we can expect some blockbuster video games to hit store shelves. Activision is once again launching a Call of Duty game -- Black Ops 2 -- and despite my issues with it, Madden NFL from Electronic Arts will undoubtedly be a sales juggernaut towards the end of the summer.

But it’s November that has caught my eye the most. Early on that month, Halo 4 will hit store shelves. Only this time, the game won’t come from the fine folks at Bungie Studios that made the Halo name in the first place. This time around, Halo will be coming from 343 Industries, a part of Microsoft.

Halo 4 Web series will premiere in the fall

Microsoft may have bungled the opportunity it had to turn Halo into a multi million-dollar theatrical movie success, but the highly successful Xbox shooter franchise will be getting transformed into a live-action masterpiece nevertheless. Microsoft will be debuting a Web-based TV series in the hopes of achieving two goals - strike up as much publicity for Halo 4 as possible, and wrangle in new fans who haven't necessarily played a Halo game yet.
