Earlier this week I posted about Guy Ritchie's fun trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 but something else has been happening over the last couple of weeks that is heating up the long standing rivalry between two of the biggest selling console games of all time. In the run up to Christmas not only did Microsoft Game Studios bring in David Fincher to produce their Halo 4 Scanned trailer directed by Special Effects wiz Tim Miller but Halo also brought out a live action web series Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn which is pretty great introduction to Halo 4 and the return of Master Chief after a 4 year absence.
You can view both the full 2:22 version of David Fincher - Tim Miller Halo 4 Scanned advert below but the entire 5 part Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn web series starring Anna Popplewell from the Narnia series.
