|A Message from Marty O'Donnell|

Ok folks; take this for what it's worth.
I just got back home from playing a little golf with my dad (Bob O'Donnell a.k.a. surly dwarf, Dr. Kerr etc.) and checked old bungie.org to discover that Gamespot (bless their hearts) has put up a bunch of new Halo movies.
Here's the deal. If you are someone who's not sure whether or not you want to play Halo or buy an Xbox or whatever, then please go check out the movies and see if it helps you decide. If however, you are already a fan of Halo or Bungie and are planning on purchasing and enjoying Halo to it's fullest extent, then please ignore Gamespot and all the posts dealing with these movies.
These movies are all quite simply "spoilers". Even if they don't give away some important plot point, they will spoil your pristine enjoyment of this game. Halo should be experienced from the beginning, on your home system, with your own surround sound speakers, or stereo headphones or whatever, not as short Mpeg or streaming movies off the internet.
When I was quite young (shut up Claude) I remember seeing 2001 A Space Odyssey at the Michael Todd Theater in Chicago. I had virtually no clue what I was about to experience and seeing that movie in Cinemascope and stereophonic sound blew me away. I can't imagine what the experience would have been like if I had already seen the "cool" scenes on my home computer screen with Mpeg compressed audio. It most certainly would have lessened the experience.
Anyway, that's the extent of my preaching for now. I hope you all buy Halo and enjoy playing it November 15. Be patient - it's almost there.
p.s. - as a point of clarification, I am in no way comparing Joe Staten to Stanley Kubrick.
