Bungie: Halo 3 Recon is '3-5 hours, not a $60 game'

Planned for release on Xbox 360 between July and September 2009.

Is Halo 3: Recon an expansion or stand-alone game? According to Bungie, quoted in the December issue of Game Informer, it's both.

Bungie lead designer Paul Bertone described Recon as "a three to five-hour expansion pack" to the magazine, transcribed by Bungie.org. But unlike initial reports, it seems the game will in fact be priced to move. "We do not view this as a [US]$60 title," said Bungie cinematic director Joe Straten.

Unfortunately, Game Informer doesn't contain any screenshots, reports Bungie.org, "but there's quite a bit of concept art, and there's a lot of description of how the game is going to work."

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
