Spartan Assault is the new Halo sequel and it will be available on Tablets as well. Here is the announcement post and a preview i recently found. As i am a big fan of Halo i can’t wait for it to come out and i will play it on my Nexus.
Microsoft has announced the impending arrival of Halo: Spartan Assault, an omni-directional top-down shooter for Windows 8 devices. Set between Halos 3 and 4, the space-hoop stopgap will be available this July for an “estimated retail price” of $6.99, though the Windows 8 version (supporting PCs and tablets) will be sold separately from the game made for Windows Phone 8.
As with other twin-stick shooters, Halo: Spartan Assault hinges on maneuvering your character out of harm’s way while aiming and firing back in 360 degrees. The game retains controllable vehicles, established franchise weapons (see: canon canons) and covenant enemies, but moves the perspective to high above the battlefield and replaces the controls with a touch-screen interface. It’s obviously more simplistic than Halo proper, and certainly more likely to be mentioned in an article with Microsoft’s range of Surface tablets.
Halo: Spartan Assault is developed by 343 Industries and Vanguard Games (Greed Corp, Gatling Gears), and comes complete with leaderboards, weekly challenges, and connectivity rewards for Halo 4, firstly in the form of new Spartan emblems. It will also be accompanied by a three-part prequel comic series called “Halo: Initiation.”
If dragging thumbs across a capacitive screen isn’t ideal, you can play the Windows 8 version of Spartan Assault with a mouse and keyboard. According to Microsoft, “Halo: Spartan Assault will add support for the Wired Xbox 360 controller for Windows on Windows 8 PCs, tablets and Surface devices shortly after launch, via a title update.”Continue reading →
As someone who’s been a very happy Xbox 360 owner for the past six years, I waseagerly anticipating buying an Xbox One this coming holiday season as a sort of Christmas present to myself. The console’s specs look killer, its new TV set-top box features look like nice additions and its ability to make Skype calls through my television is a great touch. But then I read about Microsoft’s policies on both used games and Internet connectivity on Friday and I’ve concluded that, barring a significant change, I will not be buying an Xbox One.

Sony announced its PS4 unofficially via newspaper article. If its true or not , we will find out on E3. I found this interesting article on Inquirer and i wanted to share it with you. I think that since Xbox One will be released this year that Sony will rush with its PS4 , and that is never good , it can be flawed at the start , leaving them with many unsatisfied customers.
JAPANESE ENTERTAINMENT GIANT Sony revealed on Friday that it will release the Playstation 4 (PS4) in the UK by the end of 2013.
