Crysis to be released within Halo 3's Launch window? Hit the Jump to read more.
2 weeks pre-launch isn't head to head IMO. If your really feeling froggy EA, then take a leap, and launch it on 9-25-07. Even then it won't affect halo 3 sales, since it would not be released on the 360 platform.
Even though they are not directly competing with each other, I would chose Crysis over Halo 3 any day. Crysis > Halo 3
But HALO is a proven franchise, and the HALO3 mp beta was very solid. If I had to choose blindly I would have to go with HALO3 just based on what I've seen and played. I'm also pretty stoked about the possibility of 4 player online co-op for the HALO 3 campaign. But, let's not forget, I am a retarded piece of sh*t that spouts off nonsense time and time again. Someone please smack me around like the dirty little wh*re that I am.
No one outside the X-box community really cares for Halo though. Even more so that the PC ports are ass. If my PC could've ran Crysis, I'd choose a new IP anyday.
personally I will be getting them both on launch day. There isnt any reason to choose one over the another
If EA gets the word out to enough people in advertising they really have something to show off. Crysis makes H3 look like a Wii title. And if they start showing some Crysis trailers in primetime TV events they will sell a lot of games.
will be a technical masterpiece. But nothing can stand in the way of the machine that is Halo 3. All other releases in September will be overshadowed by Halo 3. It will be a launch of epic proportions. Covered by video game media as well as the local news.
I belive killzone will blow Halo3 out of the water.
People forget that PC gaming has a much larger userbase then Xbox. Even if everyone buys a copy of halo, that's no more than 12 million copies. PC gaming stands has over 150 million gamers. Crysis sales will demoslish it. It'll be like when Half-Life was released for PC.
Out of a 150 Million PC Gamers, how many do you think have PCs that can handle crysis???
If I had to choose between the two it would be Halo3 without any hesitation! Halo's just got a kick azz story that shouldn't be missed!
For one halo 3 is a monster and no game can stand in it's path and make a dent in it's sales, with 5 million already ordered in pre-order Halo 3 will be yet again be another defining moment in gaming. Which will put 360 on the map like no other game before it. But Crysis a true beast in it's own right, will not even be in a fight with Halo 3 simply because it's on PC, and since you will not be able to get Halo 3 on PC at launch, Crysis has nothing to worry about. People who are going to buy crysis are not saying let me get halo 3 instead or vice verser because those people are on a PC. And if you have both a high end PC, and a 360 you most likely get both games for their respectable systems. They in no way compete against each other. Not Really. Crysis looks amazing and so does Halo 3 and whatever you where planning on buying is what you still will buy. One game does not make you chose the other game over the other because if your gaming on the PC then you want Crysis if your gaming on 360 then you must have Halo 3, and if your on both then you get both. Period. It's just not a real war until Halo 3 hits the PC market but by then the war will already be over before it ever began, because both games will have already sold huge numbers by then.
great post. totally agreed. When Halo 3 hits PC, the battle will be long over. Even the slogan "Finish the Fight" will be like an insult. I hope it doesnt come to PC at all, just waste of time and money.
The two games are on two different platforms and possibly 2 weeks in the difference too. Silly article really ;)
Crysis>Unreal Turniment 3> Gears > halo 1> halo >2 halo>3
You've set a new bar for stupid.
well at least I Don't have a picture of bat man hahha BAT man, OMFG lets hope you are 8 or 9 because if you are any older than that than jesus christ you need to get out more, seriously! And one more think jesus loves everyone but a kid with a picture of bat man, omg that is so lame You Just got served!!!!!!!
you just made a complete ass out of yourself.
I wouldn't say Halo is a joke, but I also can't see anything wrong with your "Greater than" flow chart.
Why would they compete? In sales there will be no comp.
Cause Killzone 1 killed Halo.
I love my XBox 360 but I think the Halo Franchise is way overrated and would rather buy crysis.
Exactly Realness! Sony branded the first Killzone a Halo Killer. All the magazines were branding the first Killzone a Halo killer. All the Sony Fanboys were calling the first Killzone a Halo Killer. Guess what....The magazines slaughtered the first Killzone. Sony Fanboys tried to stand up for the game, but couldn't, because deep down in there hearts, they knew it was boring and crap. Halo lived on, and sold millions of copies over 1 weekend, out doing some major blockbuster movies! Can Killzone 2 finally be the Halo killer that Sony originally wanted?? Maybe, but we something more than a CGI trailer, I think the Fanboy better hold off until they do just incase they have to eat there words!!
There's obviously no proof of that since it was the press that dubbed Killzone as such. In fact, quite a few Playstation magazines were confused by this moniker as they found it had much in common with the Medal of Honor series. There was nothing Halo-ish about it.
Your gay. As evident by the queers mackin it you posted.
Crysis will do well on the PC and Halo 3 will do what Halo does on the 360.
Who will win? I think Crysis.
Ermmm... someone doesn't seem to understand how head to head works. A 2 week gap is NOT "Head to Head" if BOTH games were released same day and same time..then you can say their "Head to Head". this article should be removed or re-titled, fix up please.
I'm pretty sure Crysis will crush Halo 3 in quality and gameplay. I don't know what some MS fanboys are smoking, but compared to all FPS games, Halo ain't anything special. On PC there are many batter games than Halo, even Far Cry, Crytek's 1st game was much better than Halo 1 and 2. I don't mean of course the Ubisoft Xbox Far Cry, but the original PC version.
about being an enforcer of truth? that you are still allowed to spew opinion. But please, leave it at that, I found halo 1 and 2 better than farcry for the PC, I would compare the halo 2 online to the likes of CS, but at least I'm not stating it as fact. Just because you either suck at halo, or don't like how it's popular doesn't mean your opinion is fact. It doesn't mean halo 3 is overrated and Crysis is good because I doubt you played either.
so who cares? people that want halo 3 will buy it, and people that want crysis will buy it. those that want both, will buy both.
I really don't think they'll affect each others sales hardly at all. One's for PC and one is for 360. It's just like if a big PS3 exclusive and a big 360 exclusive went head to head, sure some people may pick one over the other but both will sell well no matter what.
Who dares disagree with Diselage!!
i dont think that crysis will run on the average computer so...
its true just look at those graphix
Halo3 hype will kill Crysis. I hope the both do good commercially and critically. Personally, I'm more looking forward to Crysis as its next game from makers of superb and innovative Farcry and looks to be more innovative than both Farcry and upcoming Halo3. Of course, story wise I cant wait for Halo3 and prefer that one but Halo3 is a sequel while Crysis is an original IP and gamers and industry needs some good and successful original titles like Crysis or other wise will become a sequel fest like parts Hollywood (Spidey 3, Pirates 3, Shrek 3, Fantastic Four 2, Rush Hour 3, Die Hard 4... Seriously, this is one summer of sequel attacks!).
oh yah there is not nearly as much hype as there is for halo. Halo came out in 2001 and already millions loved it, and millions were hyped about halo 2, now the 3rd and final halo that ties everything up dramatic conclusion, and nex-gen graphics. Hell it will crush crysis in terms of sales.
The amount of money needed for a PC or graphics card just to run Crysis properly just isn't worth it for just one game. Hardly any DX10 games out now at the moment.
I saw R6:vegas PS3 version vs 360 version , yes its ok.. but Crysis vs Halo!!!!! wth is going on? lol.. Crysis will be a monster in Graphics and gameplay, the problem is how may People can run it at the best. I saw some downgraded graphics Crysis (it was amazing too) Videos and I think it will run on every low end ( 8600 or 8400 or ati X2400 and 2600) DX10 computer. so Crysis will sell enough.. but Halo has millions of fans, that will buy it even it gets 4.0 in gamespot. Crysis must prove itself. @bitbydeath : agreed, imagine that u must have Physics card to reach more than 20 FPS even with 8800 ULTRA , then there will be 5 people in the world that buy it.. ( Iam one of them, because I will buy anythin to play that F'in game :P )
Crysis won't affect Halo 3's sales in the slightest, for one they're on two completely different systems and as Cartesian said you will need a monster PC to run Crysis, so that rules out a lot of people from buying it
Has any Crytek game ever outsold any Halo game? Only "Xbot fanboys" ahoy.
' ' would chose Crysis over Halo 3 any day. Crysis > Halo 3 ' ' Correction. any average FPS > halo. But yeah Crysis will destroy Halo 3.
CRYSIS vs. KILLZONE 2 vs. HALO 3.
Maybe, but we something more than a CGI trailer, I think the Fanboy better hold off until they do just incase they have to eat there words!! keep saying "CGI" my brainless fellow, but before you realise that ps3 has the very thing in it that does "CGI", it will be e3, poor little boy you are
It is not going to be "you get Crysis or Halo3" at all. You get Halo3 if you like Halo3 and have 360. You get Crysis if you like another FPS and have PC good enough to run it.
ok how is this news serously dude halos nuts could squash crysis any day even if crysis is expeceted to run on superior hardware its far cry upscaled to the max your not playing crysis for multiplayer your playing it cause you love the way the trees blow in the wind and you love water . your all visual whores and have no respect for bar settomg gameplay and great storie "ala- halo saga oh and this killzone 2 $hit is getting hella stale. dude halo 2s farts killed killzone what the hell makes your think k2 is going to be anybetter my nut smells better hell it taste better than killzone so you wagon riders over at the sony camp do me a favor get off my jock
Can't accept the fact that a graphically superior game could have the gameplay and the depth of story line to match, can you? I have alot of faith in Crytek Studios, to nail a game like Farcry on the first try is impressive, and they should only get better. Halo may be the end all beat all of the Xbox console world, but it's still just mediocre to PC gamers.
i have already ordered my copy of halo3 and i think i will upgrade my computer to get crysis too,but i don't understand how can we compare these two titles or say that they will be head to head.
The typical PC gamers who are really interested in Crysis, probably don't care about console FPS's, and a typical Xbox360 Halo fan most likely doesn't care much about PC gaming. Two different games - two different worlds. I don't think either one will affect the sales of the other. If you talking Head to Head to see which is the better game, we'll have to wait and see, but my money is on Crysis.
