News: Microsoft's big man confirms Halo 3 is coming... next spring!

Bill Gates sat down with Time Magazine for their May 23 cover story (available online here) and he confirms something Halo fanboys have been waiting a while to hear:

Note to the hard-core faithful: the next version of Halo will not, repeat not, be ready in time for the launch of Xbox 360. It will be part of the all-important second wave next spring. ?It's perfect,' Gates says, radiant with bloodlust. ?The day Sony launches [the new PlayStation], and they walk right into Halo 3.

That's right, from Gates himself, Halo 3 will be ready next spring and he wants it to go mano a mano with the PS3.

Of course, the PS3 has no solid release date with rumors put it anywhere from April of 06 to November of 06 and beyond.

Secondly, if Halo 3 is launching "next spring", then it almost surely will have to be on hand at this year's E3 because by E3 06 it will have already been released. I guess we'll find out in a few hours.

Oh, and is it just me or does Gates look a little Borg-like in that cover picture? A shoutout to the Slashdot Microsoft GatesBorg icon perhaps?
