Havnt they always released live action titles with big names ? And isnt every cod game the best one yet? i have always liked treyarch and it does appear as though it may be the first title in awhile to stretch its legs, but how are they taking a new approach with advertising. Its always been a cultural event.

In my opinion, Halo 4 is "re-writing the rule-book" on video-game marketing.

-90+ minute webseries with strong characters and special effects
-Multiple Live-Action Trailers(infinity, palmer, finch/miller trailer, spartan ops hybrid-cg and live-action)
