Hey everyone. From HBO's front page, hot off the presses as of this post:

Microsoft's Halo team - and info on Bungie's next reveal
I wasn't going to post this, because much of the information (Payton, Yu, etc) had already been circulated... but then we got a tidbit I hadn't seen before. So: Edge Online (thanks, Michael Smith), along with ShackNews and Joystiq (thanks, bentllama) are reporting that Microsoft is confirming some of the new, big hires of the internal Halo team at Microsoft Game Studios: Ryan Payton, who worked on Metal Gear Solid 4, is heading up the Peter Jackson Halo project, working alongside Ex-Gearbox programmer Corrine Yu, her husband Kenneth Scott, formerly of Id, David Wu, from Pseudo Interactive, and Frank O'Connor, formerly of Bungie. (And, as we now know, Nathan 'bentllama' Walpole, also formerly of Bungie.) A pretty all-star team! Edge also confirms that there will be a major announcement from Bungie at next week's Tokyo Game Show, with reference to the recently released 'KEEP IT CLEAN' teaser.

Alright guys, looks like we got a good announcement. Halo 3 Recon. It will be a shooter, obviously, where the player will take control of an ODST marine. The game will take place pre-Halo, a prologue. Here is the Kotaku text from TGS; will link to a Bungie Update, if it comes.

Don't wanna brag, but I totally called this when the Data Log
KEEP IT CLEAN first came out, it said "Tokyo Rules" and I thought
it was a reference to the upcoming TGS. And I was right.
Ya'll owe me two chickens and a pillow.
