let's recap: earlier this week, it was confirmed that Bungie and Microsoft are splitting ways, correct?
Bungie calls Nintendo and says let's put Master Chief in the game because we're pissed at Microsoft.
Nintendo's like: "**** dude, our game's practically finished. We don't have any time."
Bungie's like: "Just delay it again, we'll teach you how to do awesome online play and voice chat."
Nintendo's like: "Awesome, but can we still have friend codes?"
Bungie's like: "If you want them."
Nintendo's like: "Awesome!"
Bill Gates: "NOT AWESOME!!!"
EDIT: some people, not realizing what sarcasm is, have thought that i actually believed this. while it would be awesome, it is of course, not true.
