Bungie and Microsoft may have parted ways, but the Halo developer isn't above taking a lighthearted jab at its former employer's hardware issues.
In case you missed it, there's a new Halo out today - and it's superb. This marks Bungie's departure from the fantastically successful sci-fi franchise it created, and also the end of its partnership with Microsoft.
