cover19[1]So you’ve read the headline and you’re wondering why it’s such a big deal? Since Zune’s inception in 2006 not one single soundtrack from Microsoft’s best-selling game franchise has been available via Zune Pass or purchase. You read that right folks. Zune couldn’t get rights to a soundtrack for intellectual property they already own.  Halo lovers unite! It seems someone pulled some strings and made it happen sometime this week,as I checked my self on Tuesday. Every soundtrack to every game (except Halo Wars, but maybe they’re as anxious to forget it as we are), are available for Zune Pass streaming, or purchase right now in the Zune Marketplace.

Update Looks like the Halo Wars soundtrack is now also along for the ride.
