So every AAA game needs an AAA TV Show now?

It seems like Microsoft plans on creating double the budget for every video game project, at insane development costs.

Do you think this is a good idea? I mean, how can't anyone see this trend as anything other than losing tons of $$$?

They will lead with Halo and the TV show, then when that's moderately successful, they will expect similar results for all TV tie ins moving forward lol...good luck.

That Nancy Tellem person will send MS game division so far into the red you will forget other colors exist. All spent on TV too, not games...

Their pockets are pretty deep. Whats the problem? Why are you affected in any way?

Of course not. Microsoft is an idiot company.

They reek of desperation right now, moreso than nintendo.
So why not... go for it, we'll be over here laughing as always.

Isn't only a Halo series in the works so far?

I am happy as there is a severe lack of good Sci-Fi series, especially Space Operas, the last few years

Microsoft is interested in and is developing "original programming."

Doesn't necessarily mean every game will have one but that they'll explore it. Just like Ubisoft is thinking of making a movie to all their games and if the AC movie will be a huge hit we can expect all sorts of movies based on games.
