Halo confirmed First PersonShooter fans rejoice! Bluesnews contacted their Microsoft PR regarding the stance on Halo, first person or not? According to loonyboi.. "we have been told that Halo is now a full-fledged first person shooter, and not the third person game it was originally unveiled as. Believe it or not, this actually due to the Xbox controller (see below for more on this), as the Halo team felt playing in a first person perspective was easier on the console. The game will still switch to a third person perspective when controlling vehicles." Shooter fans around the world, you can breathe easy now.
