Microsoft revealed several new details about the Xbox Series X yesterday, including a new "Smart Delivery" initiative that expands upon the cross-console compatibility that the company had promised.
At the time of writing, nearly a day past its release, the peak player count for Halo Reach stands at over 161K, according to Steam's own Game and Player Statistics page.
Few people who love a bargain as much as us, and even fewer enjoy sharing them quite as much either. Luckily for you, we just can't help ourselves, so when we saw that Halo 5: Guardians on the Xbox One is down to just $26.99 for limited time, we thought you ought to know.
It's sometimes difficult to believe that the strength and popularity of one gaming title can push a specific set of users to opt for one platform over the other. Granted, dedicated gamers are extremely passionate individuals, and more often than not often have a particular title or franchise that they enjoy more than most. But specifically opting for one device over another based on that strength of that title is a bold move. According to NPD data, subsequently shared by Microsoft, the software-giant company's Xbox One has managed to outsell Sony's PlayStation 4, with the assistance of the latest Halo 5: Guardians.
A few weeks back, it was announced that Halo: Spartan Assault would be hitting the Windows Store and Windows Phone Store in the near future and today, the title has just appeared for both Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. Costing $6.99, it would seem a must-have for anybody claiming to be a legitimate Halo fan, and we've got all of the details after the break!
The original Halo title really help to put the original Xbox firmly on the map, and with Windows Phone 8 having really struggled to establish itself in its first seven or eight months in circulation, a new Halo title would certainly help to boost approval ratings. Microsoft, in collaboration with 343 Studios, has done exactly that in announcing Halo: Spartan Assault, which will not only be available for the fledgling mobile ecosystem, but also the main versions of Windows 8. More details after the break.
It was one of the first games released along with the original Xbox, and Halo has remained one of the most popular franchises in the gaming industry ever since.
Microsoft is on a roll these day! First, they pushed out the official My Xbox LIVE app for the iPhone and iPad, then they released Kinectimals; which is the first game ever by Microsoft to land on iOS, then they released SkyDrive for iPhone, and now they’ve pushed out a big treat for all Halo: Reach fans out there.
