Halo and Avatar headline Comic-Con '09 game news

Halo film officially dead, Avatar: The Game looks revolutionary

Although it wasn't the most exciting Comic-Con in terms of game news, there was still plenty to talk about by the end of its run. Most notably, two Halo related stories emerged that were a little disheartening, as Halo Reach was revealed to be Bungie's last Halo game and Peter Jackson announced that Halo Chronicles was "no longer happening." But, amongst the sad news, if shooting aliens on other worlds is your kind of thing, James Cameron's Avatar: The Game looks like it could be a big hit, if not downright revolutionary due to the 3D element.

Below you'll find some of GamePro's coverage of Comic-Con '09, along with some of the breaking news that popped up during the event.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

STYLISTIC Q572

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

LIFEBOOK UH574

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

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
