Halo Wars is coming

You’ve got to see the trailer on the site in WMV-HD 720p. Personally I think it hints at the style we should expect from the upcoming Halo major motion picture. I’m disappointed there isn’t a PC version as well though. I also wonder if there will be a tie-in with Halo 3? Perhaps a command and control component via Halo Wars, directing troops (real players) in Halo 3? That could be very, very cool.
