Halo Reach : No Waggle Here, Folks

1 min read


Last week there was a plenitude of equivocal speculation – spurred on by floating crosshairs in an image – that bungie’s next Halo game, Halo : Reach would feature motion-based control courtesy of Microsoft’s Project Natal.

Any such conjecture can now be firmly put to rest, as bungie have confirmed, rather emphatically, that Halo : Reach will not be using the newfound controller-less waggle.

The reason for the misaligned crosshair apparently stems from a bug in the game’s screenshot console command, as detailed in bungie’s somewhat humourous Mythbusters-themed weekly update.

The studio then went on to say that “Halo: Reach is NOT a Natal title and is being developed expressly with the traditional Xbox 360 controller in mind.” There you have it – the game will not feature any silly or exaggerated hand movements. Speaking of hand motions, you can expect a Halo Reach around down south in spring.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
