The Halo Reach File Browser is Back!!

343industries have updated Halo Waypoint to offer filebrowsing functionality previously offered by Bungie.net. We've been without screenshot and gametype sharing for a couple of months now whilst 343i worked on a replacement for Bungie's service.

Well, here it is: http://halo.xbox.com/en-us/haloreach/filebrowser

A quick check suggests it has similar functionality to what we had come to expect from Bungie, though I think the way it offers up content on the front page like this is actually better than B.net - Awesome!

You cannot render films through Waypoint at present and it's not yet clear whether this functionality will be added at a later date. I know there was a considerable expense for Bungie when setting up the service. I assume 343i will want to support it in Halo 4 so hopefully they'll be able to create one system that can handle both games to more easily justify the outlay.
