Apple releasing iPhone5/iPad mini at an event on September 12th

All y0u Apple fans, mark your calanders for September 12th, 2012.

The iPad mini will be announced at the same September 12 event, as will the new iPod nano. We haven’t heard a release date for the iPad mini yet, but it could be the same as the iPhone 5. It seems likely the new iPod touch will make an appearance on September 12 as well, though we haven’t heard any specific information about that yet either.

Last year, the iPhone 4S was announced on Tuesday, October 4, 2011, and released 10 days later on October 14. The event included minor updates to the iPod line, notably a white iPod touch 4. This year, the iPad 3 was announced on Wednesday, March 7, 2012, and released 9 days later on March 16. The event included a 1080p Apple TV.

Halo 4 is coming November 6 for the Xbox 360

Microsoft finally announced a set date for Halo 4… November 6 of this year, for the Xbox 360. Obviously.

The worldwide launch date, the same day as the US presidential election, places the game after planned September and October releases for anticipated holiday titles like Borderlands 2, Bioshock Infinite, Assassin’s Creed 3, and Medal of Honor: Warfighter, but still well ahead of the post-Thanksgiving sales period.

The new game, which Microsoft has called the beginning of a “new trilogy” for the franchise, is set four years after the events of Halo 3, which seems appropriate for a game coming out almost exactly four years after the last numbered Halo game.

This will be the first new Halo game not developed by series creator Bungie, which signed a 10-year publishing deal with Activision in 2010, just before the release of Halo: Reach. Bungie had formally split from Microsoft back in 2007 to work on a new, non-Halo franchise. Microsoft’s 343 Industries will be taking over the series’s development for Halo 4, after previously working on Halo: Reach’s downloadable Defiant Map Pack and last year’s Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary re-release.
