Disc, Spine and Front cover look pretty good. But the back as mentioned does let it down with a few of the photos that look very similar to Halo 3/ODST (bottom right pic looks like Snowbound Halo3 MP).. making me decide that its fake.

I think anyone with Photoshop skills can produce this. Me myself I learning and I think I could even do it! lol

But I do think the disc/front will look very similar if not that when its released. As these are the main pictures/images shown to promote the game. I cant read the text on that back. If I could it would help to decided whether it is even more fake/real.

Definitely fake. The images on the back ARE from halo 3. I doubt they are even finished with the real deal. But I do like how they photoshopped the disc.

Uh no there not lol.

But it is fake, the one big spartan on the back is an image from halo wars, and most of the others are from Halo 3/ODST

I would like to point out that the image he linked to has not specifically been called the Reach cover art. While it wouldn't surprise me if it was used for that, they simply called it the key visual art (seen in the image's name).

It is not 100% confirmed.

considering you found this from is a 'fan made box art' site, i think its safe to say its not real.

and i think the Reach cover design will be made by Bungie, not firebert626???

just a thought......

Ah, but actual box art has been confirmed.

No, it hasn't. Anyone with Photoshop can easily take the Picture that Bungie said was the Key visual art and stick on the front of a Xbox 360 Case. That picture is the exact same one that Bungie released.

Pretty sure that's the official boxart released by Microsoft?

I wouldn't mind that new one as the box art doesn't look to shabby

No, I'm pretty sure it is. It is from Microsoft and from IGN. Did you even read the article?

Definately fake, but they did a pretty nice job. They've spelt beginning wrong, and to be really technical.. Spartan 3's (One is a spartan 2) were trained on Onyx. You would know that if you read the books :)

I read somewhere where Bungie isn't factoring the books into the official canon of Halo. So really, they could give them any history they want. My guess is they probably won't mention it. Sucks though, because that was my favorite book in the series. :(

Eh, the books are canon. Bungie has repeatedly stated so. However, Reach won't have much at all to do with the Fall of Reach itself in terms of plot, other than being on the same planet. Perhaps there are some tangent points, but it's a new story.

Just for clarification.

Eh, I did more research...turns out they are canon...kind of.

HSP: Would the books make the cut?
JS: The books are, for better or worse, part of the canon. In the future we may choose to revise or flat-out ignore some of the less appealing ideas (Johnson's biological immunity to the Flood, for example), but folks should treat them as defining elements of the Halo universe.

They could possibly be real. I just think its a bit too soon to absolutely know the box art for sure. The game is supposed to come out in September, and we rarely know the for-sure box arts until weeks before it comes out.

Ugh, this is the official box art (again): http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/106/1068688p1.html

Did any of you people calling it fake have H3 at hand? Cause none of the back pictures are on the Halo 3 cover or book.

Those screenshots look like they're straight out of Halo 3 so I'd bet it's fake. I don't think this is trying to be passed off as real though seeing as it says "by firebert". I think this is just a Halo fan doing a mock-up.
