Seeing as Microsoft have yet to enter the handheld gaming market, it would likely not hurt them to release such a franchise onto the DS. It  is hardly a competing system, seeing as I have a DS as a handheld console, and a 360 as a home console. In fact, it would sell incredibly well.

DS is for babies. Maybe Microsoft could release Super Cute Baby Puppies DS, but Halo would tank. I want to play Halo on a PSP, a real man's system. I can practically smell the cologne and feel the chest hair.

I'm kidding, of course. I have a DS and I don't think it's a baby system.

As if they'd ever put Halo on the PSP. Microsoft would never allow it.

God that was a bad joke 762. I wanted to punch you for that for some reason.

Hah! Like Microsoft would actually do that. I bet they have some secret console there planning, called a handtop. Yeah....

Yeah, even if that article is real, the game had no chance of making it to production.  Microsoft probably wouldn't adapt a major game for a Nintendo platform.

GENERIC FPS ON A COMPETING SYSTEM!

LOCK ALL DOORS AND WINDOWS! THIS IS NOT A DRILL!

What's generic about Halo?  I don't think you need to label every sci-fi shooter generic, after all, Halo is the one every other shooter since has copied, so doesn't that make everything else but Halo generic?  Anyway, once again you've proved that every topic that even mentions something to do with Halo has to have someone mindlessly bash it.

Also, the DS isn't a competing system, hence why Rare still make games for it.  Releasing Halo for it wouldn't be too much of a stretch.  After all, letting Nintendo handheld fans see that Halo is actually a good series and not just a generic FPS wouldn't be a bad thing for Microsoft.

Actually, Quake is the FPS everybody copied :)

Halo DS for real?

Gameplay videos

Looks like a blast but, I'm not entirely convinced.
For example, he hosts  and his friend joins the multiplayer match too quickly
but, I really, really want to believe this is real...

I want to know why a company would spend all that money porting it to DS if they didn't sell it, letalone announce it. Must have been legal/ financial troubles.

Didn't Bungie already explain this whole ordeal?  It was a game made by some company and pitched to Microsoft/Nintendo as a possibilty, but was rejected for one reason or another.  Bungie didn't even have any idea it existed.  It's not in the slightest bit official and will never see the light of day.
