Bill Gates Waves Halo 3 at Playstation 3 Launch

This is videogamesmanship at its best. In the feature cover article in Time Magazine, Bill Gates said the Playstation 3 will launch right into the release of Halo 3. Halo 2 has sold over 6.5 million copies and is a killer app for hard-core gamers to say the least.

"Note to the hard-core faithful: the next version of Halo will not, repeat not, be ready in time for the launch of Xbox 360. It will be part of the all-important second wave next spring. 'It's perfect,' Gates says, radiant with bloodlust. 'The day Sony launches [the new PlayStation], and they walk right into Halo 3.'"
