Bill Gates: Battle Plan

In a recent issue of Time magazine, Microsoft's hard-hitting billionaire announced his battle plan for sparring with Sony in the next generation console wars of the entertainment industry.

His weapon? The sequel to Bungie/Microsoft megahit, which has pulled in a staggering amount of sales, selling well over 6 million copies to date, the space Epic that will hit shelves with the title:

Halo 3.

Bill Gates was positively glowing when he announced that Halo 3 was going to pose big problems for Sony and the rival system to the XBOX 360, the Playstation 3. On the launch date for the PS3, Bill Gates plans to release Halo 3 on the raving masses, and he expects this to be a solid blow to the Xbox's cheif competitor.

Said Gates, "The day Sony launches [the new PlayStation], they walk right into Halo 3."

Unlike the original "Halo", which was on the epic flagship lineup for the original Xbox, Halo 3 will be a part of what Microsoft considers "the all important second-wave".

Will it be a death blow? Probably not. But rest assured, this move is throwing the console war into high gear. Sony Executives and stockholders have a lot to worry about, and in the coming months we should really see things heating up.
