    I'm not saying it wouldn't be a decent idea, just that it's not true.

    16:59 Current rumour sweeping the Web would have you believe that Microsoft is set to make a shock announcement that it is to release a special online version of original Halo for Xbox this Christmas entitled: Halo Deluxe Edition.
    These rumours ostensibly stem from two elements: 1) Microsoft may be set to make a key announcement on November 15 to celebrate the second anniversary of Xbox, and 2) Randomhouse.com has a listing for a Halo Deluxe Edition strategy guide, running to 168 pages and due for release this December.

    Putting two and two together and making roughly three million and six, the amazing Internet Lie-O-Tron processed this information and vomited it out as proof that Microsoft was set to release an online version of the original Halo for this Christmas.

    However, having made inquiries, we can now reveal that Halo Deluxe Edition is - drum roll! - an updated reissue of the original Prima Halo strategy guide. Ah. A spokesperson for Prima confirmed to us it was an update of the original, stating: "It's a new item that's been added to our schedule in the last couple of weeks. It's due to ship on November 26 and set to hit US stores on December 9; the European version should follow soon after." It's believed that the reissue is a straightforward tactic to take advantage of potential new Xbox owners this holiday season.

    We contacted Microsoft for comment, but a spokesperson would only say: "This is a rumour and it s not our policy to comment on rumours." However, a highly placed Microsoft source, operating under conditions of anonymity, laughed off the suggestion of online Halo: "It would be corporate suicide for us to release such a title - why would we want to do anything to undermine the release of Halo 2 [which is fully online] next year?" Quite.

    So, er, if you fancy a new strategy guide, you're in luck; but dreams of an online version of Halo will have to be set aside until the release of Halo 2, likely next April. However, none of this discounts the possibility of a major Microsoft announcement on November 15, so we'll keep you posted.


    There you go geoggy :smashin:

    Or another suggestion is that Prima have had to come up with this as the launch of the stratefy guide blew the game on Microsoft - of course they are not going to confirm or deny - thats what they do best. Im still rubbing my hands in anticipation ;)
