Halo 4 is less than a month away now and to hold us over is this live action launch trailer produced by David Fincher of Fight Club fame, and directed by Tim Miller of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo fame. The trailer depicts the Master Chief as he gets scanned by a key figure in Halo 4, and we get to witness how the iconic hero was created. (Hamza Aziz)
Sony Online Entertainment has scheduled the MMO first-person shooter's launch date for November 20, 2012 in North America and Europe. Together, beta testers have fired 2.87 billion projectiles to date. That sounds crazy enough to be true. (Jordan Devore)
This new "Disguises" trailer for Hitman: Absolution takes us through many of the get-ups that Agent 47 can wear to get the job done. Most of them are for blending in to get close, but some of them have to be for fun. A chicken costume? What about that squirrel-looking thing? There's a quick series near the end of the trailer that goes through some really odd ones. I have to know what that cake hat is for. (Dale North)
Nintendo has confirmed to Kotaku that, as much as it tries, it's still struggling to embrace the world of online gaming. Only a "select" number of Wii U games will support voice chat in multiplayer, and there are currently no plans for an official headset. (Jim Sterling)
