We’re titling this as a rumor, but even so, sources have revealed to Game Informer Online that there will be a Halo 3 demo released over Xbox Live in the first half of 2007. Obviously Microsoft hasn’t revealed any details yet, but we wouldn’t be too surprised if something was dropped in the second or third week of November. You know, just to mess a bit with the PlayStation 3 and Wii launches.
We contacted Microsoft to confirm this rumor, but they responded with the usual statement that Microsoft doesn’t comment about speculation or rumors.
Is it shocking that Microsoft would release a Halo 3 demo? Not so much. Is it surprising that they’d announce the first details to mess with Sony and Nintendo? Not at all.
The big question is, will the Halo 3 demo be the first demo that Microsoft will charge for? We’re also putting our money on that, too. If there’s one game that Xbox 360 owners are waiting for it’s Halo 3, and regardless of how much or how little the demo consists of, Microsoft could charge and no one would really care.
