I'm very much looking forward to this now. I was so awed by the trailer I had to watch it over to make sure I wasn't imagining it. And in fact, since it will be the final game in the Trilogy I honestly wouldn't mind waiting till 2009. That seems a bit of a stretch but look how awesome it is now. Just imagine what they can do in 3 years time. I really hope we don't see a repeat of the rushed finish of Halo 2 as seen in the bonus DVD. But all in all, I trust in their abilities. It's just Bill Gates that has me worried. Worried that Microsoft will force down a release date that will compromise the game's quality. Good Luck to you Bungie, I've not been let down once with anything that has to do with Halo. I think Bungie is the most capable video game developer of our time and I have no doubts that they will blow our socks off with Halo 3. PS, I love you guys!
