Why Microsoft launch the Halo arcade game?

Last week in a arcade machine show in China, I saw the arcade game machine which is equipped with the Halo game.

I am quite surprised with this version of the Halo game. And I tried playing the game but did not find any impressive things in the game.

What I feel is jut copy some characters in the Halo and make a new arcade game named in Halo. It totally ruin my good feel of the Halo series.

I just can not understand why they launch such an arcade version of Hal. Do they lack money?

You're literally the only person I've seen complain about that Halo game...How much do Sony pay their damage control parties? I mean the work to get fake emails, so you can make random accounts in Xbox places to downplay everything they do...sounds like a noble job but don't know if I'm willing to do such charity work.

These guys are creators, this is probably just a little side project the team did for various reasons...maybe some of them were Arcade enthusiasts back in the day. I seriously doubt it was for money, just having fun and seeing how the result would fare. It's really not a big deal for me, I would like to try it if I see it.
