Halo’s Master Chief Helmet is Wearable, Made of LEGOs

Despite the fact that we're knee deep in the advancements of technology here, we still have a major soft spot for LEGOs. Especially when they get put to use other than buildings forts (though, those can be pretty cool, too). This time around, we get to see what it would look like to be the Master Chief, from Bungie's prodigal Halo series of video games, exclusively available for Microsoft's Xbox and Xbox 360 consoles.

Microsoft Aiming to Make Halo an Ongoing Relationship

Microsoft Aiming to Make Halo an Ongoing Relationship

Halo: Reach was the last Halo-based title from the series' creator, Bungie Studios. But that doesn't mean that the Halo story is over and done with.

It's now known that 343 Studios, consisting of a lot of former employees from Bungie Studios, will now take the Halo helm, and it seems that Microsoft is now clearing up (at least a little bit) when they plan on these future games coming out.

Microsoft’s Marketing for Halo Reach Continues, Has Spartan Using a Real Jetpack [Video]

There's no doubt that Microsoft pushes a lot of its money into the marketing behind one of its largest marketable products. Halo has been a money factory for the Redmond-based company, as well as Bungie Studios (the studio developing the First Person Shooter (FPS), so to see a huge marketing campaign kicked off before the release of the title is no surprise at all. And, with only a handful of hours to go for those in the UK, seeing a man dressed up like a Spartan take flight in a jetpack may just be outrageous enough to get a fence-sitter to spend the cash on the upcoming blockbuster.

Halo Reach Will Outsell Call of Duty Black Ops, Boasts Xbox UK Director

The video game industry is a tough one. It's just as fierce and competitive as any other market in the tech world, and so it's no wonder that someone from Microsoft would boast some pretty fantastic predicted results for the upcoming title Halo: Reach. And when competition is brought up, First Person Shooter (FPS) titles Halo and Call of Duty are the two bodies entered into the title fight. With Reach and Black Ops set to release within arm's reach of one another, talk about sales numbers is starting to heat up.

Bungie Might Not Be Finished With Halo, or They Might Be

Around the time of this year's E3, back in June, there was some good and bad news delivered regarding one of the quintessential video games to grace consoles in recent times: Halo. With the announcements of Halo 3: ODST and Halo: Reach came the good news; but then Lars Bakken, Senior Designer over at Bungie Studios, made some comments regarding the final days of the Halo series, with regards to Bungie's involvement. He basically said that Reach was the studio's final Halo game, much to the dismay of the gaming world (or at least Halo's fanbase).
