Rumor Xbox Sports Network Returning - December 7, 2007

Submitted by -THE-RAY- (19) at 3:58AM PST on December 8, 2007

Weve heard rumblings throughout the week and have yet to get confirmation, but we hope its true. Two major companies are working together to bring back XSN. More after the jump: XSN was the original sports line for the Xbox brand. The short lived line of sports games ran from 2003 to 2004 with the face of the line being Peyton Manning who was the cover athlete for NFL Fever.

Outspoken director Michael Bay has once again posted a note on his website in regards to the format war, this time calling out Microsoft. He pointed out, similar to what many insiders have been saying for a while, that Microsoft was only trying to destroy both formats in order to usher in digital downloads. Mr. Bay called Blu-ray the "superior" format and hinted that Microsoft was behind the now infamous Paramount payoff.

Bungie Actually Leaving Microsoft?

Game Informer - October 2, 2007

Rumors are floating abound that Halo masterminds Bungie will be leaving Microsoft. While the majority of Internet denizens are stating that this could never happen and that it's not true, we've heard the opposite. From a source close to Bungie, Game Informer has learned this rumor has some merit. It looks like with Halo 3, Bungie really is finishing the fight. Our source stated that Bungie is "tired of making Halo, and didn't want to do future Halo games." For an unstated, but significant amount of money, Bungie shareholders bought the studio name back from Microsoft. Our source also revealed that even though Microsoft will retain the rights to Halo, Microsoft also has "the right of first refusal on future games." This means that Microsoft has the first shot at publishing Bungie's future titles.
