I think this one might get more hype than the second one. Not that I am complaining, I loved the first two and I absolutely can't wait to play this game. Nice find, I am anxious to see more video footage. This game is going to be awesome.

1up says "Starting weapon: Bungie thinks they have the "perfect" starting weapon in Halo 3. It's not the pistol, the battle rifle, or the SMG...and it's pretty familiar. How does the new Assault Rifle play?"<br />
<br />
And the EGM cover has master chief holding the original assault rifle. Are they bringing it back?

Don't know how they'll tie bringing back the Assault rifle into the Halo story. I've read all 3 books, and the Battle Rifle was a new standard issue upgrade weapon. How are they going to justify bringing back an old gun?<br />
<br />
And as far as gameplay goes, awesome. Hopefully they also find some middle ground between the 2 pistols they've had. A pistol should at least stand a chance, but not be able to defend a sniper, like in Halo 1.

Who cares how they justify it, I love that weapon. Maybe it is Chief's favorite to, and he made a few demands, namely "Get me an assault rifle, because I want it"

I was under the impression that the books were written completely independent of bungie, so they would have no interest in keeping them the same.
