Clear Indication New Game Isn't Halo 4

Videogaming 24/7: "In a virtual acceptance speech for Edge's Interactive Innovation award at the Edinburgh Festival last night, Bungie dropped a couple of hints as to its next project, saying, "Even though in Halo 3 you finished the fight, it doesn't necessarily mean the ride's over."

There's apparent confirmation there that the company's new Halo game isn't specifically Halo 4.

"Halo 4? Guys, Microsoft owns the IP now. Take it up with them. Have your people call their people," said a spokesman."

Bungie seems like they are actually bitter at Microsoft, but at the same time happy to do something else and somewhat tired of Halo (like everyone else who isn't an Xbot).

I mean I have Halo 3, 2, and 1 for my Xbox 360 and Xbox but I still honestly believe Halo 1 was the absolute best hands down. Halo 2 was fun as hell. Halo 3 is old, and even dated graphically.

lunaticpanda1013414d ago

yep, halo 1 was the best in terms of single player, but i still play halo 3 coz its multiplayer is so damn good.

yes I agree with both of you

halo 1 was somthing amazing,something legendary

you can't beat the co op fun in halo 1

halo 1 single handely builds the xbox name,

halo2 was fantastic

halo 3 was meh,decent,just decent

I hope the next new IP or halo4 be every bit asamazing as halo 1 go on bunjie

Just a FYI "Xbot" is looked down upon in the Gamer Zone.

On Topic: "“Halo 4? Guys, Microsoft owns the IP now. Take it up with them. Have your people call their people,” said a spokesman".-- that is pretty funny.

You don't have to be an Xbot to like Halo 3! My next door neighbor only plays Halo 3 and Zuma! He isn't really into anything else, so I guess he just likes H3 alot!

I perfer CoD 4 overall! Alot of my other friends still play rainbow six vegas 2, but I can't stand it anymore!

That's the good thing about opinions... you don't have to listen to them unless you want to!

I don't understand how you say Halo 1 was awesome but Halo 3 isn't? That's kinda silly since Halo 3 is has everything the first Halo had but more.

Halo CE had the advantage of being new and fresh, which makes it special. Not that im saying anything bad about halo 3, love everything about it....except for the overpowered needler, the battle rifle games and isolation =P

Edit: Nostalgia probably plays a part aswell ^^

Sitdown3414d ago

Yeah..I do not necessarily understand it either..I really do not feel the big difference between Halo 1, 2, 3 that make people say Halo 1 was so much better. When I beat Halo 1 it was because I was living in the same city and played with my brother, and I am not sure if I did not complete the campaign for Halo 2 and 3 because they did not interest me....or because I am not longer living in the same city with the ability to play co-op with my brother. Anyways......Halo 3 is good in burning a couple of hours online.

Well that's indeed good news.

Halo 1 was great, it showed FPS games could truly be done on the consoles.

Halo 2's story was OK but the climax was utter crap but the multiplayer was absoutely brillant.

Halo 3 combined what made 1 & 2 together. Halo 1's great way of telling a story compared to Halo 2 and Halo 2's Multiplayer.

A couple of facts

Halo1 is awesome yes and it's campaign more epic feeling than the sequels - try saying that to those that played Halo1 last

Halo2 is actually better than the first if you're looking at combat.Although there is a lot bad that can be said of it, so much of H2 is magnificent

H3 has even more refined combat and as a result is more fun than previous Halo's.It also has it's own disappointments but considering iv'e played this more than the other Halo's, that says a lot for how much fun it is.

People have generally only played H3 or indeed any of the Halo's only the once and so cannot get a true representation of how glorious they play - certainly H3 creates more of those random situations you rarely see again thanks to the increase in layers on an already well working design

The next in the series i believe would need to contain more scale like what the first appeared all those years ago, a more mysterious game say like what the sequels seemed to lack

As a whole H1 worked most consistently compared to the sequels in terms of never did you really question the experience

H1 is certainly my preferred and Having played it last night, i can happily say it's still brilliant, just not as brilliant combat wise as H3 is

Some people don't like to hear it but Halo was rather ahead of it's time.Sure a passing glance back then could leave you with the opinion that it was only doing what other FPS were at the time as well, but frankly if you thought Halo was only average back then, then you were rather ignorant.Halo3 has built on the already great working combat to the point now that it's beautifully refined

While most FPS have players running through the game once maybe twice, playing a Halo campaign hundreds of times is generally what it's biggest fans like best - there simply isn't another shooter that makes doing that fun like what Halo does

People clearly miss the point about why Halo is so adored and it's a shame really because while many are searching for their next fps buzz, were still playing the same game over and over again.Even the wonderful Halflife2 can only be played through a couple of times before you realize encounters remain pretty much the same each time -superb though this great game is

Hopefully another Chief adventure will contain all that makes the trilogy so great
