MTV interviews Phil Spencer about Halo [update 1]

If you haven't had your fill of Halo 3 news this week, then check out MTV's video interview with Microsoft's GM of publishing of first party titles Phil Spencer. Phil talks about everything Halo related including Peter Jackson's upcoming project, Halo Wars, and the Halo 3 beta. He discusses where they are at with all their projects, how involved they are with Mr. Jackson, how the Halo Wars RTS came to be, and gave us no news on the beta that we didn't already know. It's good to hear about the status of the other Halo projects as it looks like we'll be hearing about Halo Wars in the near future. RTS FTW, SS! (For those of you who aren't l33t, that translates to "real-time strategy for the win, super sweetness!")

Update 1: Corrected our source and video links.

Personally, I'm not even that excited about Halo 3. I mean great, its just more of the same stuff that I've seen before. Ride around in some vehicles, hit people in the back of the head when they're not looking, and get sniped by some jerk immediately when I respawn. There's just not that much more that can "Wow" me with this franchise. Gears of War has got me hooked now. That game offers a great new experience that I haven't seen before. I'm not even that impressed with the Halo 3 screenshots and videos I have seen so far. I think the 3rd installment is really more of a "cashing in" end to the series. I think a lot of people like Halo just b/c so many people play it. Its the whole hype that goes along with playing the almighty Halo that has everyone so excited. Just sitting around with your friends and bonding I guess. Kind of like how a lot of people get together to watch the superbowl. 3/4 of those people aren't there b/c they wanna see the game. They are there for the commercials and socializing. I personally wanna watch the game, and I don't think Halo 3 can offer me anything drastically different from what I've already seen. All you bleeding hearts can disagree with me, thats fine. I dont hate Halo, I'm just getting sick of it. It just gets boring after a while.

I think halo 3 is shaping up to be one of the greatest games of all time! That beta is sounding like it will come packed with a pretty fair amount of goodies!
