While Microsoft may be holding back on Blu-ray for their Xbox 360 video game system, they will allow a new seven part anime series based on the popular Xbox-exclusive game Halo to be released on the high definition format. 'Halo Legends', which is currently being worked for a 2010 release, will feature seven short anime films based in the Halo universe.
In a move that will invoke comparisons to 'The Animatrix', Microsoft has enlisted the help from popular anime studios Bones, Casio Entertainment, Production I.G., Studio4 C, and Toei Animation to produce the content. The shorts will first be previewed on Xbox Live, with a Blu-ray and DVD release through Warner Brothers soon after.
I wish I had the link to show you guys, but I saw some funny youtube videos from a girl player who would kick the crap out of this guy and then get hate mail and voice messages from him (apparently you can do that with xbox)
The game videos are crazy; she pwns the guy, like, 17times in about 8 minutes with no cuts in the video.
I love anime but if it has anything to do with Halo then no freaking way will I ever buy it. Hopefully this gets people to buy more PS3's to watch this on Blu-ray but I guess that's kind of impossible with how some of them react to the PS3 and then they wonder why PS3 owners diss the 360.
