Microsoft has stamped a 5th November date on new Xbox Live destination Halo Waypoint.
This, remember, tracks all statistics and rankings relating to Halo, plus offers exclusive videos - such as the new Halo Legends anime shorts - podcasts and screenshots.
It's a bit like Bungie.net, but owned by Microsoft.
Halo 3: ODST arrives shortly before Halo Waypoint on 22nd September, and looks to be as essential as any component of the iconic Halo universe.
