Here’s a roundup of today’s news found elsewhere on the internet:
MS: No game is bigger than Halo (eurogamer) - Microsoft has confidently proclaimed "no game is bigger than Halo" just hours before Bungie's last entry in the science fiction shooter series, Halo: Reach, goes on sale around the world.
The console manufacturer reckons the launch of Reach will be 2010's "biggest entertainment event", and likens it to the release of film Star Wars: Episode 1.
Star Wars Kinect alive and well (eurogamer) - We'd heard from a well-informed source at the US studio that LucasArts only heard about the game "just before E3", and apparently the video shown at the lavish Los Angeles event was just that, with no game actually behind it.
LucasArts denied the claim, however, and reconfirmed to Eurogamer that Star Wars Kinect, which is quietly in development at Ghostbusters: The Videogame creator Terminal Reality, will be released next year.
