Safe Bet: Halo Waypoint on your phone

August 26th, 2009

While Halo fans wait for the application to come to Xbox Live Arcade, it seems as though we may finally be getting something else we have wanted for a long time. How soon we forget. We should have known that this was coming, what with the job listing that detailed an “online infrastructure” that combined “console, web, and mobile to create an immersive Halo World that follows the dedicated Halo fan wherever they go.”

With companies like In-Fusio supposedly working on mobile portals for Halo since 2006, and rumors of Mobile versions of Halo games on the horizon, I think it’s very clear that Halo Waypoint will find its way to Windows Mobile.

Personally, I think that an iPhone App is inevitable, if they sincerely want to reach their market. But do expect to see a certain level of dedication between Bungie and Microsoft, seeing that the Windows Mobile Marketplace is coming so soon. Think about it, Bungie has already said that they expect Waypoint to be available “earlier rather than later” in the fall, and (although no date has been announced yet). Windows Mobile 6.5 users should anticipate access to the Marketplace no later than early fourth quarter, while 6.0 and 6.1 users should have the app available to them by the end of 2009.

What the mobile version will entail, I’m not certain… but I would venture a guess that it will be more than a simple RSS reader. It may not be as full featured as the Xbox client, but I anticipate some streaming video and audio, as well as access to other things like your Bungie.net service record would be planned.
