A Halo 5 Skinned Xbox One
At Comic Con this year, you can once again win a custom Xbox One!

Hunt for the Truth: Following the Trail of the Halo 5: Guardians Story
Gamespot seems to think the wording of a Halo 5: Guardians panel at the San Diego Comic Con is hinting at the long-talked about, never seen Halo TV series with Stephen Spielberg. Here's the panel description, straight from the Comic Con event schedule.
'The panel will bring new insight into the mysteries surrounding the Master Chief and build connections between the stories that have been told so far, and sneak peeks of the stories yet to be told in game and beyond.'
