We won't make you watch all nine minutes of today's not-that-funny Conan O'Brien skit about Halo 4. We're cutting to the chase. Specifically: a little bit of multiplayer with much better lighting than we've usually seen in the Halo games.

In the sketch, Conan and sidekick Andy Richter goof around in a voice booth, recording back dialogue and screams for the game. We're not sure if any of that will make it into the final game. Hopefully...

Halo 4 will be out for Xbox 360 on November 6, Election Day in the U.S.

UPDATE: We originally mistakenly said this was the first footage shown of the game. Reader ZombieCrab rightly reminds us that Game Informer magazine showed a bunch of action in the video here.
