Halo 4 Rumor

The Halo series of games has been a staple for Microsoft and the Xbox. While Bungie has been the company responsible for the three games so far released in the series, it could be that the reins have now been handed over to Gearbox for Halo 4. And what’s more, the release of that game could be on a console other than the Xbox 360.
Rumours are rife in the games industry right now. Be it over price cuts coming to the Xbox 360 along with a motion-sensing controller, whether Nintendo is already working on its next home console, and if it’s true that Shigeru Miyamoto wears women’s clothing. Okay, I made that last one up, but it’ll probably do the rounds now anyway.
