Spartan Assault could have made windows phones outsell all iphones and andriods combined, it was still coming to xbox. Still I doubt it had any impact on windows phone sales

Yeah, I saw this too; its pretty nice. I hope they learned their lesson to some degree that they need to calm down with the amount of Halo exploitation thats going on right now. Cause its not guarenteed to be some Divine boon of success.

At least they are not forcing you to do it (yet) with "optional" day one DLC, or DLC to attempt to fix an ending, or DLC that actually provides the last few missions + ending of a game, or on-disc DLC, etc.

If school isn't impossibly difficult then, hopefully I can hop on to play with you guys :/

Also, I got real excited that we would be fighting Flood, but then I remembered that the story for Spartan Assault is a cop out "simulation of past battles" deal. :(

Definitely looking forward to this. A good twin-stick is intense.

Comes out December for XB1, January for 360. $15, which isn't too bad (although I really hope that they've stripped out the freemium stuff in the process.) looking forward to blowing through the co-op stuff, I assume it's fairly quick.

Nice that double-dipping is free but they should really go with a one price all platforms thing going forward.

...and it's now out for Xb1 a little early. Hopefully the 360 version gets bumped up too :)

It releases tomorrow (January 31) according to the Waypoint Twitter account.

Silly Capac, you should have known when they said January that they were going to either release it or announce its delay on the last day possible.
