Halo 2 skips Live Anywhere
Whilst Microsoft's E3 show was all about demonstrating cross-platform convergence and communication, between the Xbox 360 and the PC, one of Redmond's most important title in development presently won't be 'Live Anywhere' enabled, reports suggest this week. Whilst Halo 2 for Windows Vista will boast exclusive maps and a map editor, it appears the game won't be able to communicate with Halo on Xbox systems.
Halo 2 for Windows Vista and Halo 3 for Xbox 360 are currently in development side-by-side at Bungie, but Live Anywhere functionality won't be included in the former, though presumably will be a part of the latter, when that eventually reaches the PC. In their latest update, Bungie also talk of the possibility of classic FPS Marathon hitting the Xbox Live Arcade in the future, mooting support from many quarters for a version of the game.
Finally, Bungie are promising some new Halo 3 goodies shortly. We'll keep our eyes peeled for you...
