Steven Spielberg is getting involved in a "groundbreaking" premium Halo TV series on Xbox in partnership with 343 Industries.

If you were hoping for a Halo announcement during the Xbox One reveal, it looks like this might be it. Pah!

Still, it's a Halo telly show, which is good news for Halo fans the world over. Can we have Halo 5 now, please?

And here's me thinking they'd talk about a Halo GAME for a Games console. Silly me.

I'm just glad there wasn't a Halo 5 reveal. Too soon for that. Anyway, this sounds interesting. Forward Unto Dawn wasn't as bad as I feared it would be, so this could be pretty good. We'll have to wait and see.

Steven is a legend and FUD was great. This has so much potential!

they kept using the word "premium" throughout the whole thing. Which makes me think that it will cost extra to watch. Hopefully I am not correct.

I'm just as excited about this as the next guy but isn't the main reason why the movie has been on hold for so long is because Master Chief (and other Spartans depending on when it would be set) never take their helmets off so there's a huge lack of emotional connection or something like that since you can't actually see his face. Again, I'm excited to see what happens with this especially with Speilberg attached to it but it seems like they'll run into the same problems the movie did.

I knew there would be a Halo announcement in some form. They just wouldn't be able to announce a new console without one. I am really excited for this TV series. I loved Forward Into Dawn and the Reach live action trailers. I'm glad Halo 5 wasn't revealed as it is too early but I can see Halo 2 HD remake having some potential to make an appearance at E3. So excited for Xbox One now.

When they say premier what do they mean? Included in the price of XBL Gold? Additional sub charge?

They should have just expanded Landfall into a full fledged movie. That's what the people want you know...

So, let's say I get new system and I'm paying my £40 a year gold membership, how much extra is it going to set me back to watch this, heyy? So far really disappointed in this, too much crappy media aspect, maybe if they hadn't spent so much time researching the media side they would have seen that GDDR5 would have been a better choice over DDR3 especially considering 3Gb is reserved to system.

Blah fuking blah. As much as this looks promising with Steven producing it, this money could have gone towards their game devision instead. MS has clearly lost their way. I'm about 95% sure I'll be abandoning this brand and going PS4. I can't stomach another 7 or 8 years being ripped with XBLG again, especially if we are paying for entertainment first and foremost.

Don't you guys see the flaw in MS's focus here? Geez.

I think Forward Unto Dawn was great, so I have high hopes for this! Especially since Spielberg is involved

This could be a whole number of things for this show. Not just about Spartans. Though they have to keep it real and NOT show Master Chief face. Though I would love to see some Sgt. Johnson and ODSTs.
