Get Ready For Halo 4, Due Next Year

Well, what do you know? I was nearly certain that the Halo franchise had ended. Not only was Halo destined to be a trilogy, but its latest game, Halo Reach was a prequel to the trilogy. I remember thinking it was kind of funny how the prequel to the trilogy turned out, in fact to be the best game of the entire franchise.

Fortunately, for Halo fanatics around the world, they’ll be able to rejoice to the news of Halo 4’s release. Assuming your Xbox360 hasn’t had a Red Ring of Death yet, you’ll be able to get more shoot-em-up action and be able to embark on new heroic missions.

Xbox360 Adds YouTube, Bing, And Live TV To UI

Just a week after Microsoft boasted that 40% of all Xbox’s use was nongaming, Microsoft has recently announced at E3, that it has improved the Xbox UI by adding both detailed voice and gesture controls. The new Xbox user interface will have Bing, Netflix, YouTube, and all of your usual games all in one system, creating the ultimate powerhouse for entertainment.

The only thing missing is a usable chat client, similar to what STEAM uses for its gamers. With the new system, gamers can simply say a term to bring up all games, movies, and TV-shows related to that term. Gamers will be able to watch clips of the content, view gaming tutorials through YouTube, and discover any new releases pertaining to their favorite titles.
