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.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
