they payed big bucks to make sure this was at least as BIG as it could be, can you say hype?
Bungies cost ? not enough I'm sure.. probably way less than 50 mil, to be shared amongst 100+ Employees (just guessing here)
Marketing for 2 years ? (100,000 million probably)
No doubt that this game is great, and that they will make LOTS of profit off of it... but honestly, have you ever seen anything so hyped?
And as far as M$ selling Bungie... I think it would be in Bungies favor, cause now M$ is just holding em back! (taking their money)
on a side note... I love the game, it is not perfect, but it is a halfass satisfying conclusion to the story, and online is a blast without people having traingers/cheats yet.
It is a damn shame that M$ holds the rights to the name though... movies,cartoons,toys,shirts hats, and anything else that can be branded (roller coasters), proceeds all go to the allmighty M$.\
so in short (lol) no I am not content if M$ owns the Halo name
