Halo Legends Coming to Blu-ray in 2010

Posted July 23, 2009 09:59 AM by Josh Dreuth

Warner Bros.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.

Funny. But I suppose its the logical step with Blu-ray being the best way to enjoy the movies. Maybe MS will now start supporting Blu more openly.

As far as the Halo films go, yeah, gonna have to see more about it. Nothing against Halo, but any FPS translated to film automatically raises my eyebrows.

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'll have to see the reviews. While a Halo anime is interesting, it could no doubt be god-awful.

What if an Xbox 360 fan wants to purchase this Blu-ray, but they only have Xbox 360 and no blu-ray player? I personally am going to pick this up on day 1 just to tease my brother and my cousin!

I know a lot of people here pretend it no longer exists, but there is something still available called a DVD... That will play in a 360...

I love Halo, and anime so it's a great combo for me. Surprising though that it's going to come out on Blu, but awesome non the less.

Why are they associating XBox/Halo with BluRay?

Sweet....The story has great potential...And Starscream, hard to call a game the most overrated
when it has billions of online multiplayer hours, obviously it's not just the critics who like Halo...

Though the maps for Halo 3 kinda suck, they need to release the original ones..

It should not come as a surprise that Microsoft is allowing this on blu-ray. Microsoft actively develops Microsoft Office for the Mac after all.

anime?! I was hoping for Live Action Film. on youtube there was a video of some guys in full Halo Costume's! I thought the film was going to be with real people in costume fighting CGI bad guys.

I'd much rather see the entire Red vs. Blue series released on BD, even though there isn't much resolution to be gained from doing it, and the entire series could fit on one BD-25.

THAT is a Halo BD I would be willing to buy.

So this is probably going to coincide with the new Halo game that is coming out that year. Hopefully the game isn't as bad as Halo 3 is.

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.
