The lights are on
A young Halo fan who endured a nine-hour liver transplant was treated with a surprise visit from Bungie and a host of gifts.
The boy's father, who goes by the online handle "fiscal_" posted an image gallery of the boy and his thanks. Gifts included a card signed by members of the studio, a Halo shirt, and, most impressively, a full-sized replica of Carter's helmet from Halo: Reach. Dad says his son is recovering well, and that the gifts were a big mood booster in a difficult time.
The father also cut off any back-seat parenting off at the pass, saying that his son doesn't play the M-rated series, but that he loves the character of Master Chief and the series' action figures. Dad says the boy only watches snippets of the game when he's with his parents.

Bungie -- the pure opposite of EA's marketing department. Glad to see they're making even their youngest fans happy. I can imagine how cool that must have been, getting the helmet and best wishes.
Awesome! Bungie is the coolest.
Very neat, Bungie!!
Good guy Bungie.
This is awesome.
Great to see Bungie caring for their devoted fans, I realy hope to see sucess from their future projects, I for oneknow that I'll love them.
Bungie is the best company gaming has. They're amazing in so many ways, and this is just one example of their epicness!
That is nothing short of awesome!
Kinda fills me up with positive energy. Surely this put me in a good mood today
Good job Bungie.
Kid tested, father approved.
Nice one, Bungie. Here's wishing the young man a speedy recovery.
That is so nice of them :)
...and then Microsoft sued for breach of contract and took everything back, and demanded the kid's liver as payment.
Kidding; that's really cool of them. Microsoft and Bungie have been coming up nothing but roses recently and I can't wait for their new game. Good luck to the kid, too.
