IGN's resident Nintendo guy, Matt Casamassina, claims to have played Halo
on the Nintendo DS in a post cleverly titled "I Played Halo on DS
." In short, the thing was up and running before "egos" conspired to crush the impressive port. Matt waxes wistfully about the Xbox-quality graphics, the Metroid Prime: Hunters
control scheme, even the soundtrack before lamenting the death of the would-be megahit.
Who killed Halo DS
? Was it the Xboy
? Who knows. Of course, since we do know that IGN themselves discredit
what's published on their "blogs" -- as opposed to the "site itself" -- we're more than happy to call bull on this one ... especially since we all know portable Halo
belongs on the cellphone
platform! Even better, we're hoping for a big Gizmondo Halo
rollout at CES
this year. Make it happen.
