Halo 3: ODST may have been made in 14 months, but can Brian Jarrard justify it in 30 seconds?
we can sit here all day and it's still not possible to justify a 60$ expansion
masterchief died, along with halo a few year ago =/
master chief is playing halo 2 during this game. he took of with ship that jumped away at the very beginning of ODST. (that's also a part in halo 2) i don't need a justification. i got my 50 euros right here. (this game is actually 15-20 euros cheaper than all new games in the netherlands) Day 1 buy for me!
Not worth $60.
A game shouldn't need justification.
you know there's something wrong with a game when you need people to justify it, and plenty of online articles about reasons why or why not it's worth the full price
a fun little thing that Kotaku does. Stop being morons. It has nothing to do with ODST needing to be justified. You either like it and will buy it, or you wont. It's as simple as that.
The wii as a piece of technology isn't worth $250, but because people want it they can charge that price. Same here, it can't have cost them much to make but people want it and due to supply and demand, they can charge it.
LMAO!!!!!!!! THIS IS SO SAD, They had to make a video ROFL!!!!!!!
but still a might buy .... never mind too many good ps3 games coming out... only 360 game that is day 1 purchase is mass effect 2.... that game is going to be beast... but then i got gow3, heavy rain and bioshock .... man come on microsoft give me games not twitter
If you bought Halo 3 and liked it, then you won't give a crap about these criticisms. You'll still buy it. A halo fan should buy all titles in the franchise, even if you don't like it, it would be just to try it out. I'm one of those who dislike Halo franchise in such a high level that you'd never see me holding a copy in my hand, but i have no problem with people who like it. I don't like it when developers have to justify the purchase for you when so close to release, which makes you wonder why. I think they themselves realize that it's not worth the full 60$. "2 new weapons, a new campaign with coop, 24 extra maps"... this to me doesn't sound very much after a year of development, especially when other games have more after a year of development. Like Resistance 2 60 player multi, seperate coop campaign, HUGE 30-40 maps, great story with 9-12 hour campaign. But then again, approximately 8-9 million who bought Halo 3 will want another taste of their beloved franchise and who can blame them, if they liked the last game why not buy this one? It's all good in the end, but developers shouldn't try to justify their own products... They should be confident enough to believe in their own products, and in the end this fake hype will only end up hurting sales.
Look at what a game like Uncharted2 is offering for 60bucks and look at what this game is offering for $60 and you tell me if ODST is worth 60smackers.
Microsoft must've caught up that people aren't going to be in a mass spending spree on ODST. Even the most hardcore of Halo fans should know this is a pure scam to get all your dollar bills. Think before you buy.
1) All new story (Which according to Bungie is 6 hours long (Which they soon changed to 10-15 because fans didn't like that small number)). 2) Lots of people have loved and enjoyed the Halo series (If everyone jumped off a cliff...) 3) 2 new weapons (OOOOOOOOOO, AHHHHHHHH..... -__-) 4) Firefight (Horde modes justify EVERYTHING, right?) 5) Beta (Okay, that's cool) 6) A bunch of maps, mostly recycled from Halo 3 (Way to go out with a bang, eh?) That was WEAK. I can't believe they let this guy represent Bungie. @1.4: Exactly. I want to get ODST eventually, but I'm not paying $60 for it.
..not only that but he claims that 25 million people have enjoyed the Halo series in the past few years. He's talking about his own series and i would think he would be more honest about that and not just throw in a number to get more hype. ROUGHLY 25 million copies have been sold in total of 4 Halo titles. That's not 25 million people, that's about 6,25 million people per title. I'll even bet that it's the same people who bought Halo 1, 2 and 3 that will buy ODST.
I think, ODST is indeed something!
alot of blind people here. Kotaku do a justify your game segment for every big release. Im sure we will hear a different tune once Uncharted 2s justify your game segment comes around.
I think it's funny that matchmaking in halo 3 is considered to be one of the best things about it, and yet the new firefight mode doesn't even have matchmaking. Seriously?
justify subHD MGS4
MGS4 native resolution is 1024x768 as apposed to 1280x720 for native 720p. HD or not, notice that vertical lines are the definitive measure of things thus 1280x720 is 720P and 1920x1080 is 1080P. clearly Kojima has put more than just 720 lines vertically compared to 720 and the game just look gorgeous!
HAS NAME IS master BOT NOT master Queef.
HAHAHA, that made my day!/sarcasm solid droid... see how funny i am.
It got better value then any ps3 exclusive ever made.
I wasnt going to comment, but you sir live in denial.
this is a perfect example that pizza got no brain
you don't really believe that, do you? If you really do believe that, you are really a f*cking fanboy idiot who shouldn't even have the right to express such a delusional opinion.
Halo has features that most fps dont have . To discredit halo is like discrediting call duty 4 .
what features are you speaking of?
your a terrible troll, just terrible.
Forge Theater customizing gametypes File Share Bungie Pro online stats emblems Bungie Favorites ect.
Xbots they are playing your song.
http://www.n4g.com/PopUpPag... ^^^much appreciated
you little boys do? Troll 360 articles taking bubbles from people? Do you really expect people to agree with your moronic statements about a 360 game in the 360 section of N4G? Are you that stupid? I know, a lot of questions. I trimmed it down a little so it's easier to read and comprehend.
http://www.n4g.com/PopUpPag... He's annoying too
It's Halo, that's enough reason for many little kids to steal their moms credit card to buy it.
Awfully hard....2 new weapons? Hmmm =/
To bad he fails to mention that they REMOVED some weapons.
Damn =/ Epic fail....
That vid was rubbish. Im getting the game but that vid did nothing for me. could have presented better.
odst is the xbox haze good ideal bad game
it MUST be true. OPEN ZONE -------> EDIT how did you get 4 agrees by the time i wrote this comment. Maybe someone shoudl look into your new account...
Insecure much? LOL pathetic! Convinced now that odst is pure garbage backed by sympathetic websites Who are feeling sorrow. These websites don't have to buy games & they already feel Shafted yet cannot displease thier American affiliates. It's 2009. The future. Men are the new b1TCHES. & this is how gaming news is reported. Can I get a AMEN?!
dont support these rediculous fanboy war garbage.
If you like the game buy it if you don't then don't as easy as that.
So a guy who works at Bungie while wearing a Bungie shirt who also happened to work on the game is trying to convince people to buy the game? What are the odds? Edit: Spelling
im gonna get it cause its something new in the halo universe. free roaming and halo reach beta were the two things that just made it clear that i had to buy this game
^ "had to buy this game" You mean expansion.
well... that didnt exactly make me want to go buy an Xbox 360. am i too demanding? i would love to hear of some awesome totally new groundbreaking game, that would make me buy the console. Mass Effect trilogy would do it, but i have a PC that i'm going to upgrade (finally!).
True. I'm in the same camp.
pc xbox360 same sh1t i lie
Microsoft is just sending xbutts to the grave with this release. Here we are with more than 5 giant releases for ps3 in 2009 after being hit with MLB 09 the show, killzone 2 & infamous. Early 2010 is sealed as well for ps3 with the likes of mag & gow3. And the xbutts? Well they are still stuck in the 2007 genres & graphics engine. Just too easy! LOL! Ah man... Well good luck xbutts. Have fun with the sales aspects of videogames while ps3 vets & newcomers Have several great choices or even better... All ps3 exclusives. : (
Easy to justify to those who will buy it.....they want the game....justification complete Why does it always have to be a war with you people? You either want it or you don't...pretty damn simple
yea i hear you, i personally dont like The Halo series so chances are i wont be buying this game unless a few things have changed from the others (those damn shields online). I'm waiting for Reach though and i hope it can get me into Halo but i have a feeling its gonna be the same type of gameplay with updated graphics.
i just hope MS dont leave the gaming industry if they leave, ill have to play with some 12 year old lil kid saying a lot of crap on all the games, ive been playing on PSN since 2007 and ive NEVER meet anyone so randomly stopid like ive meet on XLA in the past. on topic. mm its DLC.. if they said it was goin to be another Halo okay cool, but.. its a DLC.... and wiht a 60$ price on it.... dont get me wrong but, this sucks, i cant understand why people feel so right buying this, just because the HALO name is on it? .... dear god...
This paid advertisement has been brought to you by microsoft
Why all these assurance articles? Must be because there's reason NOT to get the game.
Gaylo. hhahaha, that's all the bots have left, overprice gaylo dlc.
wtf, you guys are pathetic. just tell me this..do you hate your parents? why do you act like this? did your uncle raped you in the basement when you where little?...why the hell sit all day in front of your pc in the xbox section and wait for a halo article to pop up so you can go and write the same things over?...for god sakes go at least play with your ps3 if you don't plan going out from the house....pathetic.
Dont want to be a D!ckhead but watch this ps 3 fanboys they even fail to justify uncharted 2 two times. None the less uncharted 2 will kick ass because it a good game just like halo is in my eyes. http://kotaku.com/5354196/j...
The Halo series remains the only real serious reason that i continue to bother playing games Bungie has a superb mastery of the fps design and it's only ever the clueless that say otherwise
Jeez, people just need to buy the damn games they want. Do I want to, or have to, justify every game I buy? Hell no, I don't care if I have to or not, I buy what I want. If you want ODST (looks cool, I'll get it for free as a Christmas present) or you want Uncharted 2, get Uncharted 2. Why have to justify it? If people are willing to pay $60 for ODST, more power to them, it'll probably be a pretty cool game. And to all you people blasting ODST, I don't like the Halo games at all (except for #1, I agree that its an awesome game, the Flood kicked ass) but ODST looks pretty damn cool, and I'm not even a fan of the series (hell, I own both consoles but I prefer my PS3 by a mile, but everyone blasting OSDT is just making me shake my head). I guess what I'm trying to say is this: why the hell do my fellow PS3 users care if 360 people pay $60 for ODST?
