Halo vs Uncharted: who will win E3 2014?

What will be E3 2014′s game of the show? vg247 takes a look at the heavyweights headed to downtown L.A. and place some informed bets.

The story is too old to be commented.

Yea an halo is for halo fans I just said the one I'm most excited for just an opinion

crxss1231d ago

Uncharted will win at E3. Halo will sell more.

mcstorm1231d ago

How about the gamers win as we get 2 great games as we all know UC and Halo are amazing games but two different game too.

alexkoepp1231d ago

Just look at sales history, Halo crushes Uncharted. Of course Halo wins its not even a competition.

Septic1231d ago (Edited 1231d ago )

Personally, Im a big Halo fan and it's one of my best gaming franchises of all time.

Uncharted may wow gamers more though because it will blow our expectations wide open with its visuals.

Both games are in a class of their own but Halo did more for the industry as a whole and will for me, always be king.

Still, being such a big fan also means Im one of its biggest critics and if it doesn't live up to the hype then I'll be the first to say so.

Both are mammoth franchises though. Let's see which game generates more buzz!

@alex
Just look at GOTY awards history, Uncharted crushes Halo. Of course Uncharted wins its not even a competition.

805Junior8051231d ago

I doubt halo will sell more, Halo 5 will be on Xbox One only and Uncharted will Be on PS4 only, respectively, who has the larger instal base?

VforVideogames1231d ago

may be uncharted, god of war, killzone and (adyourfavoritegamehere) combined vs HALO.

Halo because it's the full package. 343i have proved they can provide a fantastic single player, and with the help they brought in for the multiplayer, no other game can match that balance. (PS I enjoyed Halo 4 mp). Uncharted is a solid game, but Halo is just on another level. Slide Halo in at the #2 or slot for most iconic gaming franchise behind Mario.

Also people love to compare console sales, can we compare the software sales of Halo and uncharted? halo4 $220 million in 24 hours, not to mention Halo went head to head with multiplat Call of Duty for years. I think its safe to say Master Chief is more known than Nathan Drake.

We all know the point of this article so I participated.

LazyGoron1231d ago

Halo 5 will flop, similar to most of what MS has done this generation. Every single thing MS has done since the X1 reveal is:

Hype (gauge reaction) - change stance - attempt to purchase 3rd party exclusives - hype (gauge reaction) - repeat

BTW there are more Honda's sold than Ferrari's, doesn't make the Honda better.

Septic1231d ago

@LazyGoron

Quite a silly post and obviously showing some insecurity.

Halo 5 will flop? Lol you wish.

And your Honda vs Ferrari comparison is laughable.

hankmoody1231d ago

@lazygoron

LMAO Uh... no. Halo 5 is not going to flop. You might wish that it will but it won't.

805Junior8051231d ago (Edited 1231d ago )

Pokemon is behind Mario as the most iconic gaming franchise. Halo is iconic in the US behind Call Of Dury. You are a trueXboxFan boy... Halo won't do as well as it's predecessors unfortunately. Titanfall flopped, did well, but flopped and it released across Xbox consoles and pc. Halo will be Xbox one only, it won't do well. Decent, but will once again not expectations.

mrpsychoticstalker1230d ago

Obviously Halo, the first Halo revolutionized the gaming industry. It still serves as an inspiration for many other games.

Halo 5 is set to keep its reputation.

Is there a real question here? Uncharted hands down. I've enjoyed Halo, and Guardians may be great, but more than likely it'll be a rehash of Reach (which was the best imo).

beans1231d ago

Really? I thought Reach sucked in comparison of Halo Combat Evolved imo.

On topic both will be great showings so neither will win unless one is by far graphically superior then the other.

Ghost_Nappa1231d ago

Reach was a bastard on legendary solo.

OpieWinston1231d ago

Reach was far from the best.
Halo 2 best MP
Halo 4 best Campaign
Halo 3 ODST best Co-op

And how is Halo 5 a rehash of Reach? Reach made a bunch of half measures, which pushed 343 to make those full measures in 4.

They've got tons of feedback from it so I imagine that 5 will be NOTHING like Reach.

And there's no way to answer that question until we see both games, so you saying "Uncharted hands down" just fits your picture.

Dirtnapstor1231d ago

@ beans
Yes the original was really good. For me, by the time Reach rolled around, it was a refreshing take on the series.

@ Opie
ODST should have been called Orbital Drop Ship Sleeper! Lol! I think they put together all the cutting room floor segments from everything else into one game.
The fourth installment was really good also. I hope for the best with Guardians.

As I stated below, both will be incredible for their own genres...one cannot really compare the two, for they are entirely different creatures.

DigitalRaptor1231d ago (Edited 1231d ago )

Both different genres. Neither are coming out this year. Only one will blow minds graphically. At least some of us have the decency to admit that both games have the potential to excel for their respective consoles.

Bigpappy1231d ago

I would just say that if I was surrounded in battle and the both show up, I am going where ever Master Chief is going. Not only that, but I hope they attack.

plaZeHD1231d ago

Agreed. IMO Halo has always been too damn boring, but to each their own.

LonDonE1231d ago

BOTH!! I will be buying both on day 1! both are great games and both usually have great graphics and game play.
Why does one have to win over the other? why cant both be winners? I cant wait to play the next halo game on my X1 which I know for sure will be THE GAME to show off to the doubters just what the X1 can achieve.

People who think X1 us not capable of 60fps games with stunning graphics are delusional.
However people who also think X1 will be able to catch up or surpass the PS4 power are even more delusional! even with the so called DX12 and cloud(LMAO).
Halo 5 multi player should be EPIC at 60fps!

I know for a fact uncharted on PS4 will set the graphical benchmark for consoles games as soon as its released. Uncharted 2 to this day looks amazing and most importantly plays great too.
I think the true winners are the core gamers who are able to put childish fan-boy rubbish aside and embrace being a true gamer who owns and games on all platforms! or at the very least if not as fortunate to buy all platforms, still remains objective and appreciates that every game and platform have their pro's and con's.

jnemesh1231d ago

Considering Halo 5 isn't going to be released until after NEXT e3, Uncharted. Why even show games that won't ship until fall 2015???

No_Limit1231d ago

Neither, Wii U Zelda will Win!!!

FamilyGuy1231d ago

It depends on your definition of "winning".

Uncharted takes on awards like no other and typically raises the bar on visuals and entertaining story telling.

Halo has a massive following with the sales to back it up with a storyline/universe that many fans love and can't wait to get back into. Halo games are fun and their online multiplayer communities last for yeeears.

With Bungie now tied up with Destiny it will be interesting to see where MS takes Halo and if it can still live up to its predecessors.

BLow1231d ago

Why not both. As a gamer, I want both to win. Both will be amazing!!!

liquidhalos1231d ago

Both hopefully, I'm really looking forward to playing them, after recently playing Uncharted 3 I'm now a big fan if both. 2 great examples of different genres

Ctiboi20101231d ago

Both maybe? I don't know why there has to be a winner since they're both great games...not everything has to be a competition.

Clover9041231d ago

Great games, in two different genres no less.

Belasco1231d ago

Bubbles for "well said". We need more like you around here.

Visiblemarc1231d ago (Edited 1231d ago )

You got one from me for the same reason. Balance should be encouraged.

The one I'm most anticipating is Uncharted. While I think Guardians will be great and do love FPS games, lately TPS games get me more excited. Also, well...next gen Naughty Dog? Yes please.

parentoftheyear1231d ago

Looking forward to this. Have a ps4 but new crackdown or halo 5 and the Xbox 1 will be mine. On yes, she will be mine.

Dirtnapstor1231d ago

Very true. Both can be a superb experience for their individual genres.

Geoff9001231d ago

It amuses me greatly when people say it's a war, and declare someone as a winner...

Both franchises, games, consoles, companies etc co-exist, and will for a very long time...

ShinnokDrako1231d ago

I guess, in their own way, they're going to win. Both of them.

Jdoki1231d ago

I would imagine PS4 fans will say Uncharted no matter what, and XB1 fans will say Halo no matter what! But I'm just guessing!!

I suspect the majority of US media will claim MS won E3, and the rest of the world will say Sony edged it.

I would think we might see about a million opinion pieces from people who were not even at E3 who will claim either MS, Sony, or maybe even Nintendo won.

But as I say... Just guessing!! :)

Clover9041231d ago

Nah, Oculus is going to win e3 this year. Exclusive games, a release date, and an unveiling of the final first gen consumer model!

If that doesn't happen, then Sony wins.... no matter what!

beans1231d ago

Well I wouldn't say either wins but still I'm looking forward to Oculus. Everybody will have a different winner this year and no website or poll can dictate which show was better based on there opinion.

Geoff9001231d ago

You can't really 'win' E3, you can have a bad E3 and a good E3 but you don't win E3.

Gamer6661231d ago

If E3 2014 is about two games that might ship in fall 2015 then neither will win.

E3 2014 should be about games slated for 2014. Not 2015. Gamers deserve focus to be on the selection of games that they will have access to this year, not vaporware. Especially in a technology based industry where delays are rampant (Ex. last guardian, killzone 2, Alan wake, too human, drive club, watch dogs etc). Star gazing to 2015 or beyond is lame and shows that the consoles were shipped too early by at east 1-2 years.

Why don't they have enough content to fill E3 2014 with games of the same year? Gamers need to start holding console vendors accountable for shipping consoles too early and not having enough quality content to fill a 1.5 hour show.

Think about the gamers that bought a ps4 just for drive club last year. Or back in 2008 saw the demo of last guardian and bought a ps3 right after. The console vendors are screwing customers by talking about games that are in the future with no firm ship date. Think about it. If a content platform is selling you on content for 2015 what is your reason to buy the content platform this year? Why not wait Until 2015 when there might even be a price drop?

Sharky2311231d ago

The console industry has always been about teasing what's coming in the future. If we didn't have the teasers we wouldn't have anything to get excited for. I understand some of the frustration with the delays but I would rather have a delay than a game they fix as they go. Game devs are damned if they do damned if they don't. If they put a busted game out it hurts there rep and gamers blast them. If they delay a game for any reason gamers blast them. I just can't wait for e3 to see what's coming down the pipeline!
