Halo 4 is a big game, we all knew that, but it's actually the most expensive game Microsoft has ever produced.

Speaking to Polygon, Microsoft Studios head Phil Spencer has called Halo 4 the "most important entertainment product in the company". In response to a question asking if Halo 4 is the most expensive game in the studio's history, Spencer sated: "Absolutely. Nothing's even close."

Halo 4 is due for release globally on November 6, exclusively on Xbox 360.

I went to AskJeeves to find out what the Halo 4 budget was and he offered me cheap car hire. Google infers a more likely $100m+ which is still just a fifth of Kinect's marketing budget.

So more interesting questions might be what is Halo 4's marketing budget? Does it really need one? Is it the best exclusive, ever? What does Master Chief do when he gets caught short?
