Over the past few days, Geoff Keighly has been sending out tweets about this year's Spike VGA's. His latest updates seem to be focused on Halo: Reach, including: Let me put the rumors to rest: The HALO: REACH piece at the VGAs will not be CG.
Indeed. This year's video game awards sounds like the best one yet. Though, that isn't saying much when compared to previous years...
will deliver. i'll sell my 360 if it will not. that should be the end of ps3 as Sony will be forced to bring ps4 after we all will see that halo reach gfx level is not possible on ps3 because of its limitations on gpu side, memory configuration, tesselation unit absence, and no edram. there will be Halo reach HD picrures soon on the net before VGA's videos.
lol still mad that a 2007 game destroyed 2009 game in both sales and quality cry moaaar i guess
first, you paid Sony employee - one of 15 here on n4g. second, your job is to post crap about nin and ms over the net in order to make bad pr third, your magical cell has been abandomed, so ps4 will have new architecture = no one will spend a cent on cell now. except sony first party wich will go bankrupt soon because ps3 exclusives sell bad.
Nice little fantasy land brewing up here. iMad you really crack me up man... So how much are you selling the 360 for?? I need a new heater XD
ROFL Sony employee lol. Do you think huge companies have nothing more to do but hire fanboys to talk trash on sites? Oh wait didn't Microshaft and Turn 10..... Sorry but I am a self employeed fanboy.
A live action ad like the one for ODST and Halo Landfall would be pretty cool.
Yes a live action movie would be cool but it would be cooler to have innovative gameplay and something that looks like next gen visuals.
And you have the nerve to accuse others of being a paid employee? You sound like Major Nelson or Aaron Greenberg right now. In fact, I take that back. I don't even think those guys would make such an asinine statement. Don't get me wrong, Halo Reach will probably impress. But impress to the point that it blows God of War III, GT5, Killzone 2, Uncharted 2, MGS4, and whatever else Sony has coming outta the water so bad that Sony has to drop PS4? Madness.
I don't think its going to be live-action, but graphics to another degree. From those fuzzy pictures that we saw a few weeks back, those guns looked pretty detailed. With the "X-Engine" building up... maybe this will be something to take 360 graphics to the next level and Halo: Reach will be the title to showcase that engine. We will just have to sit back and wait.
hype hype hype hype hype hype hype and more hype lol can believe it ??? look at this article and those comments
Why is SONY even being mentioned in this thread? As far as I'm concerned this has nothing to do with Sony and any mention of it is completely off-topic. I hope they do great things with the Halo Movie.
i hope the first footage isnt live action (but im not saying i dont like the live action footage) he ruled out CG, but that still leaves actual gameplay or live action...i hope its actual gameplay, but if it turns out to be live action, i wouldnt be too disappointed
Hopefully it's gameplay and not live-action crap (like the ODST ad). @fanboys above (or should I say fanboy above, seen as it is obvious it is Cold 2000's multiple accounts) - For f**ks sake! Can you not FOR ONCE think of Halo as the second coming? This game WON'T sell Xbox 360's, because everyone who wanted an Xbox 360 for Halo, ALREADY bought one two years ago when Halo 3 released. How much of a sales boost did we see when Halo Wars came out? Or ODST? None. The ONLY thing that can boost 360 sales now are Natal, and possibly Splinter Cell.
Meh, how about some damn in game real time gameplay for once Microsoft?
A co-op "Masterpiece"!
Halo Reach will OWN VGA
Halo Reach at 640p
Halo reach for the lube.
I can't wait to turn the channel when it comes on.
The VGAs this year are going to be awesome. I'm looking forward to seeing 2K Games new shooter revealed.
want halo give me halo more halo need halo now plz
Halo = Crying Droids
I can picture all of the sony fanboys in the VGA audience tearing up.
Halo is for gays.
I will cry a lot, but rest assured that those will be tears of joys seeing the misery of Bungie unable to 'REACH' HD graphics.
wana see an xbot ?? http://www.youtube.com/watc... lol Typical 1- a kid 2- playing on a SD-TV 3- playing halo 4- LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO L .... just look at the vid
^^ uh,did you ever think that it could be gameplay insted?. live action will suck and be critisized for months to come. of course the 360 fannys wil be praising it as the second coming lol. EDIT: EXACTLY alcon,live action are def made for ads (tv spots),for for an awards show?. no way are you going to please the gamers. (maybe casual)
I think it's alright to have live actions ads, as long as there are an equal amount of "in-game" ads. Live action ads appeal to mainstream media watchers, a demographic that MS's marketing department know all too well. But for the Video Game Awards, you CANNOT show a live action ad and hope to score with it. It's gotta be game.
Its still going to be annoying seeing all the fawning and dissecting for gameplay out of it.
Pretty bold to claim that people would get it confused with CG graphics. Kind of puts him on a pedestal, which I think is unnecessary, unless it's going to be a mind blowing trailer. Hopefully we'll all be amazed.
first they promise CG quality g4aphics for Halo 3,and everyone knows that went to crap.. h3ll,halo's visuals are on par with Haze lol haha poor bots,no sympathy here. and now they are gunna step up their large amount of crap and promise real life visuals ,then we all know how that one will turn out as well... CRAP!,with SUB HD res. hahA,the bots trying hard to defend a dying console with garbage hardware is funny. ps3 fans wont be crying,we will be laughing at the xbetabots for hyping a failure in the making.
A live action trailer would be sweet. ODST had a great live action trailer. Of course the game was god awful. Hope REACH can devliver. Halo 3 and ODST aren't up too the standard. Bungie can go out with a bang.....hopefully./
it will. you will be very amazed by what 2005 hardware can do. don't you remember MS said that they did 360 two generations ahead of time. now we all will see what they meant. don't also forget about they mentioned that they have games which far surpases Killzone 2 level.
Well, them saying they have two games that surpass Killzone 2 isn't really saying much considering: 1) Killzone 2 has been out for quite some time now. To say you have something surpasses that but isn't out yet means nothing because, 2) by the time those 2 games drop, Sony will have advanced the envelope again with God of War III, Heavy Rain, and possible Killzone 3. It'd be like Konami saying it's next Suikoden with no release date is going to blow FFXIII outta the water. Not really fair considering one is practically done (for Japan at least) and the other is just vaporware at this point.
@8.1 saying that is just like saying that a 2005 PC can run DX11 which IT CANT lol dumb ass im 100% sure that you are a MS employee
was it really worth your $60, bots? no and failo reach will be the same
Just imagine the intensity of the ODST and Halo 3 live action movies... but with ACTUAL Spartans. With the stuff Spartans can pull I'm sure were in for one hell of a ride.
Halo Reach is coming and ps3 is dead with free dildo motion controller
A kid like you don't no what a dildo is.
and a kid like you does :)
Halo 3 had epic battles. I can't think of a single FPS which has more units all fighting on screen at once. Take for exampls the scarab fight. You have scarab, banshees, banshee/hawk battles in the distance, ground troops, vehicle battles etc. Or take halo odst, there are sections where you face up against 50+ enemies at once. I'd rather sacrafice graphics for scenes like these. But I do think bungie could do a better job of making them more cinematic...
Dude are you serious? I've played Halo 3's campaign twice, and there was not a single "EPIC" battle there. I will admit that the Scarab battles were great, but the scale was not mind-blowing. Hopefully Bungie and Microsoft have been working hard on Reach to show off what the 360 is capable of.
Its the player who makes the battle Epic. Its the developers job to make the play ground.
wee more of the same HALO
The fact that Marty is composing the music for the trailer means that it is most definitly an in-game cinematic. http://twitter.com/BungieTw... Bungie also uses in-game graphics for cinema scenes and it has been confirmed by Bungie that this Reach trailer is infact the games opening cinematic.
Can't wait. Obviously there not afraid of showing of the new engine. It must be really something.. When did Bungie confirm btw that it would be the opening cinematic
He made it clear because BUNGIE told him to do so. People are hoping from BUNGIE to show something which surpasses KILLZONE OR UNCHARTED visually. They knew gamers will be disappointed. And also this somehow confirms that technically REACH will be HALO 3.3
ask sony fans thay know more thin u
Its a new engine!!
I'm a bit confused. Does he mean CG as in a computer generated trailer using no gameplay whatsoever? Or does he mean CG as in there will be no computer generated anything? I think he means we'll be seeing an in-game trailer. IDK.
It means no CGI, meaning it will be in-game. Take this Bad company 2 trailer for example http://www.youtube.com/watc... It was cleaned up a bit for promotional purposes but it still represents in-game scenarios. Something like that.
Where in that tweet does it insinuate that the trailer will be a live action short of some kind? Stating that it isn't CG likely means that it's done in engine like Bungie always does. That makes way more sense than it being a live action short. Ok, I kind of reiterated what BreakNeck said. That's what I get for just posting my thoughts without seeing if someone else has already said it.
Knowing M$ they will put more time effort and money into the live action trailer than in the game itself. M$=All hype, no substance.
We bots are lucky enough to get a exclusive running in 640p :*( Bungie probably has to fully max out the 360 in order to get 720P HD,but i hope it worth it this time!
too much on the graphics front. There's only so much you can do with the limited power available from this generation of consoles.And, after all, this will be an action title, which means some processing time will be required.Unlike some of these so called graphical masterpieces that are, in actuality,nothing more than interactive movies - no processing required,you see?.You know what I mean.When button appears on screen,press said button to move your character out of danger!! Jeez we had that level of gaming way back in the early eighties - Don Bluth's Dragons Lair, anyone? However,I really do hope they pull out all the stops, because gamers need a really good Halo title this time round.Fingers crossed.
