Halo [DS – Pitch / Tech Demo]

Halo [DS – Pitch / Tech Demo]

halodslogo.jpg

In January 2007, IGN editor-in-chief Matt Casamassina claimed he played a version of Halo for the Nintendo DS. Due to speculation, on October 2, 2007 he demonstrated on-camera, and in-game footage of an early-development style version of Halo DS. The demonstrated work featured dual-wielding and a version of the Halo 2 map Zanzibar. On October 5, 2007, Bungie employee Brian Jarrard explained the Halo DS demo was in fact an unsolicited pitch that was never taken on. [Info from Wikipedia]

    This needs editing, this was later found to be a fake. It was a skin modification of golden eye rougue agent for the DS.

    1. BudderCreep3r

      Although this game is just a skin, it was never confirmed to be fake, rather just the pitch EA (The secondary company that Matt described) used with an old engine.

    But it was a “skin modification” made by the same team of Rogue Agent DS, right? From what i have read, they made it to show the proto to Bungie, hoping to get a contract and to develope the real Halo DS. So, if this story is true, this is a real proto, just not an official Bungie one.

    urm i love the idea of halo ds and really want it to be made but where can i get this? even if it is just the prototype, where can i get this? I AM DESPERATE!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. LiamRproductions

    Ok, let’s clear things up. The prototype was made by a few staff members of IGN.com they made it as a joke to fool everyone. It’s just a skin mod of golden eye 007 rougue agent for the ds.

  5. thisisthe1

    it wasnt a joke at all….my mate has a copy of the prototype. Its just a replica of a couple of the levels.

  6. monokoma

    I’m even more confused than before.. so, IGN did make that demo just for a joke? Well, probably they have the knowledge to do that, but then, why did a Bungie employee said that it was a real proto that was proposed to them? Did IGN want to develope HALO DS? It just does not make sense to me..

    “Kotaku: The whole Halo on the DS rumor just doesn’t want to die, do you see that in the cards?

    Brian Jarrard: This rumor has been circulating for a while and as you know we even saw some real life screens and assets this week. Ultimately it’s up to Microsoft to decide if and when they take Halo to a different platform. That particular demo was in fact created and I believe it was an unsolicited pitch a long time ago but nothing ever came of it.

    If the Bungie guy tells the truth, we know that a HALO DS proto was really created as a proposal for the real deal, but then, we just need to understand if the screens / videos that IGN leaked are from the same proto or from another one…

  7. MAIcrosoft

    finding the trth on this is the biggest mystery ever [: Maybe we should try to contact the ones responsible for this :3

  8. LiamRproductions

    Monokoma, Halo DS was a rumour and IGN made the Proto as a joke basically and to get IGN more views and popularity. Then it later turned out there was a planned Halo DS game but was scrapped before it was ever in developement for more than a month. It’s just a coincidence. Matt Cassamassima has admitted it was fake in his blog and that he just did it for shits and giggles.

    There are tons of comparisons that say it was fake and it’s widely achknowledged as a fact that it’s a modification of Golden Eye rougue agent for DS.

    I have a copy of the ROM of the Halo DS Proto. It is real all right. The graphics are great for a DS game, and the music is all right. If you want it, just search Google.

  10. GigaZ3R0

    If you know where to get it don’t send it out by e-mail, give us a link or tell us exactly what to search on Google. But, seeing as how I’ll forget all about this when I wake up, please e-mail this to me at [email protected](SHMEE)com.

  11. ObviouslyNot

    I’m pretty sure it’s not just a joke. Tell me how would you gonna make Zanzibar with a couple of texture mods?

    And it’s easy to see that not only that Bungie could make a DS game if they wanted, that they wouldn’t necessarily have to make it themselves anyway.

  12. Willy105

    Don’t panic guys.

    Yes, this is real, it’s from the same developer that did Goldeneye Rogue Agent for the DS. This was a proof of gameplay that would be used to convince the publisher.

    The game WILL NOT be released since this proof was not accepted for various reasons.

    IGN was just a blabbermouth and released it publicly.

  13. Tetsuo

    Holy shit most of you are retarded.

    No-one has the ROM. Anyone who claims to is lying, just like that kid who totally knew how to play as Simon Belmont in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or that kid who totally figured out how to play as Gordon Freeman in Halo 3.

    You’re fucking morons, honestly.

  14. RDilus

    men that everyone believe there is a rom
    if there was no one got it and its was already leaked if some one haves it really

  15. dizzydiggy98

    I want this ROM but the retard who “has” the ROM is probably gonna send you I virus. So go ahead, send everyone who wants the ROM (and me) a virus. You find it VERY funny don’t you? I’ve been trying to find this ROM for months!

  16. MAIcrosoft

    Everyone who posted their email here, you do realize that you get a lot of spam instead of a non obtainable rom dont you? :p

  17. Chris Jeremic

    God you people are dumb, IT DOESN’T EXIST. It was a skin mod by IGN, thats the end of it. Anybody who CLAIMS to have a rom is full of shit and is just doing it for attention.
