Fable II and Halo 3 double pack Product Details
Released on TBD
The Covenant control Earth. The Flood is unleashed. With the fate of the galaxy hanging in the balance, Master Chief is the only one that can save the human race. The entire epic story arc has led up to this moment. Master Chief, the last of his kind, is a warrior born for combat, bred for war… and humanity’s only hope.
After stowing away on a Forerunner spacecraft, Master Chief, a genetically altered, cybernetically enhanced Spartan supersoldier, must race back to Earth to stop the Covenant once and for all and save mankind. With his artificial intelligence companion Cortana in the grip of the Flood’s intelligent embodiment, Gravemind, Master Chief and his allies are vastly outnumbered. But the stakes are too high to do anything but face them head on.
In “Halo 3,” the third installment of this legendary epic, the war has come to a climax -- the Flood continue to grow in numbers and strength, the armies of Earth are scattered and decimated, and the Covenant threaten to activate the Halo, effectively destroying all life in the galaxy. Master Chief’s mission: to stop the Covenant, destroy the impending Flood threat and ultimately save mankind.

Peter Molyneux awarded the BAFTA Fellowship
It was announced this morning that popular British game designer Peter Molyneux is to receive the BAFTA Fellowship.
He is the third figure from the video game industry to be inducted into the illustrious list of fellows, joining Will Wright, Nolan Bushnell and, most recently, Shigeru Miyamoto. He becomes the second recipient of the honour this year, after it was bestowed upon Christopher Lee at this year's British Academy Film and Television Awards ceremony.
Molyneux is perhaps best known these days as creator of the Fable series, though arguably his most successful creative period came as head of Bullfrog Productions in the mid-Nineties, with a string of innovative and critically-acclaimed releases like Populous, Syndicate, Theme Park and Dungeon Keeper.
After founding Lionhead Studios, Molyneux designed the Fable and Black & White series, as well as being heavily involved in the development of PC title The Movies.
Molyneux said it was "humbling" to "be in the company of some of the greatest talents the entertainment industry has ever seen".
"I remember back in 1967 watching the first BAFTA awards on television with my family and seeing them being so excited about those accolades," he added. "Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think it would be possible for me to accept one of the greatest honours the entertainment industry has to offer."
Following the success of Fable III, there's no word yet on what Molyneux is currently working on, but given the designer's fondness for discussing his projects - often before he's supposed to - details of his future plans surely can't be too far away.
The real star of yesterday's BAFTA show was undoubtedly Peter Molyneux. The legendary designer, who's currently the boss of Lionhead, and who can count the likes of Populous, Syndicate, Black & White, Dungeon Keeper and Fable amongst the games he's helped shape, was awarded a BAFTA Fellowship - a prize that sees him joining Nintendo superstar Shigeru Miyamoto, and SimCity designer Will Wright.
"Every day I wake up and thank the stars that I'm still here now," said Molyneux in an emotional speech. "I love my job so much and I really feel like going home and working harder than I've ever done to prove that I deserve this award."
He also had a few words for the videogaming press, too. "I'd like to thank the press, by the way, for listening to my stuff,he laughed. orry - I've slightly over-promised on things on occasion. I could name at least 10 features in games that I've made up to stop journalists going to sleep and I really apologise to the team for that."
We'll forgive you for over-promising, Mister Molyneux - but we couldn't forgive you if you didn't get to work on Fable IIII straight away.
Ready to feel old? Microsoft best-selling Halo series is 10 years old this year. A decade of Master Chief! To celebrate, the Xbox giant has announced Halo Fest, a three day event celebrating all things Spartan, which will take place during the Penny Arcade Expo, due to hit Seattle this August.
The event should be a blast, and will see Microsoft swamping attendees with tournaments, panels and all sorts of prizes. The reason why wee excited, though, is that, even if wel be stuck in rainy old England for the event itself, several websites looking at you, Eurogamer - are speculating that Microsoft might use the occasion to announce a new Halo game.
With Bungie leaving the series it created with last year Halo: Reach, it over to the franchise new custodian 343 Industries. The team has been hiring game developers left, right and centre for quite a while, and Eurogamer seems to think that a tenth birthday party would be the perfect time to reveal what 343 been up to.
If you're not in Seattle this August, don't worry too much. We'll have all the news for you right here.
Halo 4 beta invites are a hoax, warns 343 Industries
David Ellis of 343 Industries, the studio which inherited the Halo series from Bungie, has taken to Twitter to warn fans that offers to take part in a beta trial for the upcoming Halo 4 are not to be trusted.
If you see a page claiming to allow you to sign up for a Halo 4 beta be advised, IT'S A FAKE, he posted, which is pretty conclusive. It seems fans had been lured in by unscrupulous phishing sites which requested personal account details in return for access to the hotly anticipated FPS sequel.
Halo 4 sees the return of Master Chief, having sat out both Halo ODST and Halo: Reach, and marks the start of a new trilogy for the award-winning series. The game is expected later this year, exclusively for Xbox 360 of course, but Microsoft has yet to announce any further details.
