Halo 4 Will Be Called Halo Reach

There will be a next version of Halo, but rather than being called Halo 4, it will be called Halo Reach. There are no real specifics on the game yet, but it supposedly going to be released in the fall of 2010. It appears that our “friend” Bill from Bungie was entirely wrong and all of his posts and comments were totally unwarranted (click here to read all previous speculation), however they were fun, and caused quite a bit of stir in the comments. 😉

What would you all like to see in Halo Reach?

Xbox Media Center Extender – Optional Media Update Required – Play AVI, MPG on Xbox 360

Recently (actually, I don’t know how recently it was, considering I haven’t used my Xbox 360 as a media center extender in quite some time) the Xbox 360 began supporting file types other than Windows Media files (.WMV) on the Xbox 360. I tried connecting my Xbox 360 to my media center and wanted to play an .MPG file that I had on my computer from my video camera, and I got the following message:

Optional Media Update Required

A media update is required to play this content

From there, all I had to do was connect to Xbox Live and let the update download on its own. Now I can quickly and easily view any video that is sitting on my computers hard driver, whether it is an .AVI, .MPG, etc. I haven’t yet tried to stream any .MKV or DIVX files, but I’d love to hear if any of those file types have worked for you.
