We heard about the 4gb Xbox 360 consoles experiencing difficulties with Halo Reach to which Bungie responded that a patch fix was all that was needed. Now it seems the 20gb Pro consoles don't like Reach much either
Ive had no problems at all, but one thing i would like changed is the motion blur, its fine except when you see it in places it shouldn't be, like reloading or entering vehicles, great job bungie but please give us the option to turn off or at least tone down the blur.
ye, Ive noticed that here and there to.
@Tinted Eyes Who said it was breaking consoles i haven't heard that one yet...I have a 20gb 360 thats from 06 and its still working perfectly haven't had one problem with halo yet....I'm sure half these stories are bull just PS3 fanboys talking down on it cause they know it's one of the biggest games of this year.
I can live with the blur. Its the bloody friendly Ai that sh*ts me. Zig zaggin in front on you as you try to have a shot. I know all shooters can be guilty of this but it seems to keep happening over and over again. I've actually died when I tried to shoot one of the blast weapons just as a guy jump in front of me and blew ua both up.
"So tell me, if this is such a PS3 site, where are all the stories telling everyone Halo takes about an hour to install. Yeah thats right, an hour. I'm guessing slightly I admit, cos I've been sitting here for 20 minutes and I'm 30%. Everytime a PS3 game has a long install theres a half dozen stories about it, wheres the Halo one?" A PERFECT example of the double standard I am talking about. Since I only have a PS3...I did not know about this HOUR LONG INSTALL. Yet every single PS3 game that has an istall...there are 3,4,5 articles about it MOST of them complaining about the install. Take your MS glasses off, get up off your knees, pull up your pants and see what I am talking about. As for GT5? THAT is your excuse? That since GT5 is a year later it does not matter? Are you going to tell me that ALL of the added features were put in...in ONE YEAR? Most, if not all of the features in the final GT5 game were there a year ago, the graphical quality, the number of cars...etc etc....were there a year ago. But unlike MS and T10....PD and Sony CARE about their games and want to make the best game possible and they do not CARE about the time it takes. You argue as well as a teabagger....repeat the same recycled talking points over and over without any real substance. "Sure, GT5 will have more features." No braniac...GT5 has a mountain of features to Forza's molehill. Take a football analogy...final score team A 27 Forza team B 568 GT5 sure, team B scored more but team A scored 1st....your "logic" not mine.
"Go play the Best Buy GT5 demo - I already have. The graphics are hardly any different than Forza 3's. Get your head out of Sony's a** & see what I am talking about." So nearly double the rez of forza 3 with double the amount of cars on track at once with weather and day/night cycles only translates to "hardly" better graphics than forza in your mind? I really do think you need to get your head out of your console of choice.
Don't forget twice the anti-aliasing. (4xAA in 720p mode, 2xAA in 1080p mode)
The numbers prove you wrong which is why you are ignoring them. I am not obsessing you are just ignoring the facts with your biased opinion. I have seen hd gameplay of gt5 on my 52 inch bravia.
Microsoft weren't prepared, what a surprise.............
Or maybe they were aware?
I'm having the same issues with blur as well. I honestly thought it was a tv problem since I have a new led. But instead this is normal, like it's supposed to be there?
This does not bode well for me.
its just bunch of lies my Reach works fine on my Xbox 360 20G
Yep. Don't know of anyone experiencing issues. Myns an arcade console with a 60 gig drive thrown in. I run a gaming community site and none of my members are having issues either. Fail article written for one purpose.
here's your fail article....ALL over the web http://topnews.us/content/2... http://www.product-reviews.... http://www.gamespot.com/xbo... http://www.bungie.net/Forum...
Did anyone else experience serious pop-up issues during 2player co-op? I sure do.
i know bungie have an update on the way to fix some issues
split screen? Yeah, the draw distances are lowered so the game runs better. Sometimes you can't even see the enemies! But I completed (almost) the entire game through split screen. It's not a huge issue.
had too much of that bloom lighting, causing the machine to chug there should have been some quality assurance on that.
...and not a single issue. But, this kind of alarmist news has accompanied EVERY Halo release, so it's not surprising. The majority of these "reports" are bogus, and the rest can be chalked up as coincidence....their old 360s were about to die anyway.
To say that the entire industry and critics alike hold double standards in favor of the 360 is just..... invalid. I cant tell you that your opinion is wrong, but I can say that it doesnt make sense.
i'm playing halo reach on a 6 gig mem stick so far no problem, beat it coop on legend already must be some 360 consoles ?
I have the 20 gig, and I have no problems. Also any of these LAUNCH WEEK bugs aren't negating the fact that there are 600,000 people online in reach at any given time. Another thing, stop being dumbass whiney fan boys and buy both consoles, and then you won't have shit to bitch about.
lol its true i started coming after seeing advertisements in the official playstation magazine PSFB= playstation fanboy
Xbox 360 20gb Pro owner here and not a single problem.
20G launch unit here (#3) and only had one freeeze problem loading is way to long and cant install only have a 20G and I read its ~ 7G to install... yea MS if true way to go
PS3 fanboys will use any chance to bash Halo, or any Xbox game for that matter. It really is pathetic. Why can't we just play the games we want to, regardless of console?
Darn I have a 20GB Xbox 360, hopefully Reach will work for my system. I would think these types of problems/bugs would be patched b4 this major game came out. Imagine God of War III not working on my Fat PS3 60GB just because of some lame patch, I would've killed someone at Santa Monica studios. For Halo Reach I can wait for the bug to get fixed. If GT5 has a major bug, think I'll kill myself having to wait any longer to play that game /s.
For the biggest game on 360 this year, stuff like this shouldn't be happening. Things happen though.
i'm not going to lie it is ridiculouslu funny to see all of you freaking out about somewone else console. Its just soo funny what you say! Ps3rd graders? M$? Xbots?! I love it:) I gotta ps3 and i can say i like it better then 360. my opinion.But i'm pretty sure theres no denying reach is preety titeee. I played it today fire fight is the shi*! Also i'm confused how are the ps3rd graders winning the trolling war or whatever if more 360 have been sold? haha hyrius. Sorry xbox peeps. but hey ya got halo reach thats preety tight! The jetpack is raww. I was just pissed bout how they killed duelwielding. Also ya imma hippocrite but quit bitching about others console adn games. If you own a ps3 then stfu if you own the 360 stfu. ( i think its only fair to make fun of wii, i have 1 and it sucks soo bad)
I've had no problems so far and neither has the friend I played offline coop with this afternoon.
