This looks like a legitimate, if somewhat low quality, recording of Halo 3's opening cinematic, explaining the Chief's arrival on Earth. It also appears to confirm the contents of the game story summary posted elsewhere on the Internet.

Again-- if you don't want to be spoiled, don't view!

It's unconfirmed for now (see the "rumour" category) but Pro-G is reporting they have unofficial news that any GamerTags with Halo 3 play associated with them before Sept. 25 could end up with their Live account banned.

Heads up, for those tempted by stores breaking street date... even playing offline may result in getting booted once you hook back up.

-- Steve'll keep an eye out for something more reliable than rumour... and isn't certain whether he hopes it's true or it's false.

Okay, so the 360 isn't setting sales records in Japan, and the Japanese aren't really known worldwide for their love of the Halo franchise. Still, that didn't stop flagship Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu from ranking the game quite highly. One scorer gave it 10/10. The others? 9/10. Not bad. PlayTM has the story.

Tyson "Ferrex" Green has written up the first part of a three-part series on working in Forge, Halo 3's in-game editor. You'll apparently be able to call on a startling variety of objects in the editor; although you won't be able to change map geometry, you'll be able to add objects so large that they will, effectively, change the flow of the map.

And, of course, it's not just editing, it's also a play mode:

First of all, this page contains SPOILERS. Do NOT read it unless you want the ending of Halo 3 spoiled for you. This is not appearing on the front page unless you've selected to view spoilers, and I've obscured the text by making it white on a white background; you'll have to highlight it to read. That's as much protection as I can give you.

The second-to-last Bungie Weekly Update before Halo 3's official release date is well worth the read. The highlights, though, are you should stay out of random Bungie.net player profiles from now on, since you may end up seeing screenshots taken by people who've gotten copies early. Also, Miguel Chavez, invited to play through the game last week, says the ending is "perfect". You've heard it from Bungie's #1 fan.

When I was trying to get the IWHBYD skull I fell and I ened up in a garage and when I steped out I was walking on nothing! First I was walking on buildings and I got to the pelican checkpoint (Where if your trying to get the skull you jumpp down on the ramp to see the pelican fly away) there is a small space between the building your trying to jump to and the rail. Fall in the space and keep on walking.You should end up in a sort of garage.

Sign on Zanzibar
On the beach on Zanzibar, you will see signs that say NO SWIMMING. Well, go to your xbox dashboard, go to the Settings, Clock, and change every number you can to 7 , then pop Halo 2 back into your xbox and load it up. WARNING: Do not sign into XBoxLive, it resets your clock. Now go to Split-Screen and start a game on Zanzibar. Go to the beach and look at the sign, it will mention something is missing, and there is a bloody dog's head.

First go to Quarintine Zone. Next look around to your right side and you should see a small tunnel. Walk through it. Now keep on going strait till you see a strip of land that is connected to the wall (There are many strips of land connected to the wall so pick the one that has kind of like a part of a ship or metal hiding it). Walk down the strip of land ( careful not to fall off ) till you reach the end and you should see a floating skull. You must do this on Legendary.

This skull makes things have bigger explosions and more
powerful melee attacks.
