An exclusive full-length, live-action Halo 3 commercial. Is Master Chief's fate sealed?
- This is Spartan 117, can anyone read me, over
- Master Chief? you mind telling me what your doing on that ship?
- Sir, finishing this fight
This is exactly HOW you advertise a must have title for your console!
It's a shame that Sony is not doing the same for games like Heavenly Sword and Lair.
I have yet to see any adverts from Sony for there games other than that pointless 'This Is Living' trailer.
Yet every day I see a 360 or Wii trailer for a game that's arriving on there console!
I can't wait to start seeing these spots on TV!!
I like the Museum one too.
that one was cool, that whole battle looked really well done.
I just hope MC doesn't die. He just can't !
I hope he doesn't die too! But hey, all great heroes fall at some point...
If that's how it ends...this WILL be epic. I haven't expected much from the Halo storyline so far, but that would just be AMAZING!
I believe in the story. That means nothing for the gameplay.
Honestly, I could say that Shadow of the Colossus has the best ending ever and pretty much be right.
This did remind me a lot of RFOM's ending though...
If it does end like this...it have been pretty predictable.
Here's my opinion: The game doesn't end this way, but the ending is still REALLY good. This would just give it away entirely. I think him blowing up just himself and one enemy (i lack knowledge on the halo universe) will do much.
All you gotta do is believe in the story, and believe in this game, and insanley good things will come. THAT WAS FRICKIN AWESOME. Best ending of a commercial this year.
the advertisements have NOTHING TO DO WITH THE GAMES STORY LINE!!! Even Bungies said that. They are made by a advertisement company hired out from MS.
Just like they denied Halo 3 was being made. They wouldn't tell us if it was.
If this has nothing to do with the storyline...I'll be upset.
I haven't been a huge fan of the Halo storyline SO FAR...but if that's how it ends...I'll be a fan, I'm sure. I know it would be ludicrous to say Halo 3 could have such a deep storyline as Bioshock. I doubt any game THIS YEAR could have that...unless Naughty Dog redefines the genre THREE GENERATIONS IN A ROW!!! UNCHARTED FTW!!! haha...sorry. I'm just really excited for U:DF.
Whoever is doing these commercials is genius!
Why can't Sony or Nintendo get that kind of advertising? They're rich too!
When I become CEO of SCEA...I promise you all I will get GOOD advertising. I MEAN GOOOOOOOD! You will RIP YOUR EYEBALLS OUT and send them to your GRANDMOTHERS because you won't want to cry ANYMORE!
Good god that looks awesome.
I believe that was simply a terrible ad..
Still looking foward to playing it though..
Is this how the game will end?
Alos, the ad is absed off a battle that we will envounter in the final game (or thats what I have heard.
But we do not know how it will play out, it deffinitly is not the final mission in the game.
Great spot, very well done.
cant wait anymore... aaaaaaaaaaa.
One word... Awesome.
That is awesome!
That was great, good find.
That is awesome. When I followed the thing around to the chief and clicked 180 degree button. It said "It was here that master chief turned the tide of battle by allowing himself to be captured and sealed the title of the worlds greatest hero" I can't friken wait to play this game.
Wow. Great find.
Now, let's debate: Does the MC live, or die?
I would say that he dies, i think that would be a cool surprise.
But then we wont have more MC and that sucks.
Bungie did say the battlescale will be massive.. I really hope the battles are as crazy as that commercial portrayed.
I'm not a total die-hard Halo fan but the last 2 commercials have gotten me to believe that's for sure!
Finish the Fight!!!
I would like to have that diorama. The detail in the figures is stunning.
Anyone know when the reviews are due to hit?
the 23rd of this month.
The media outlets are all playing their copies right now, reviews will be here next week, probably towards the end of the week.
Definantly NOT the 23rd, it's a Sunday silly and besides thats too late. Game releases midnight the next day.
All press who were at the review events are under a NDA until the 23rd.
reviews are due on the 23rd.
"Halo 3, the year's most anticipated video game, will be jointly reviewed by the gaming and mainstream press all next week starting Sunday. The game will be presented in its entirety; reviews and event coverage will be embargoed from publication until September 23."
Oh my god,
I don't even like Halo but those are the deepest commercials I have ever seen for a video game. I really want to kick some covenant a$$ now!
I agree, I've always loved M$'s ad campaigns. Usually, they actually make sense n' are fun to watch. More so with their console ad's.
We're talking about the commercial with the frozen battle sequence? Is the one brute holding Master Chief by the neck? I like their less is more approach. Just a diarama and some soft piano, and it makes a great impression.
now this ad is miles better than the museum ad.
Is the "Monument" ad the next one, or is it old?
are just too tight! What I noticed though is that the style of the scenes is almost like Killzone 2 or Gears of War; it feels dark, intense, and chaotic, just like captures from a real war. Whoever directed these commercials should've been the visual supervisor for Halo 3.
Dude just because the Covenant use colorful weapons, armor, and vehicles, it automatically makes this game not gritty at all...? The presence of color makes a game happy and fuzzy, and not war-like at all? See thats whats wrong with people who b1tch about art direction...
<ed> You were the one implying that you didn't like the art direction of the game, not me.
in these commercials; there's no use claiming that I said certain things in my post that weren't even implied. Preference is a very different concept from complaints about the color of a Plasma Pistol or Brute Hammer. I suggest that you stop acting in such a childlike manner and complaining about art direction, unless of course you do Computer Graphics work?
That was really something. Deep and moving. Great job.
This only makes the wait for the 25th that much more unbearable.
That would be even better if some on remixed it with some Rage against the machine or Linkin Park.
The believe has nothing to do with the story...
Its believe you are gonna actually be able to buy it on launch day XD
Launch days give me the shivers after Gears of War and Bioshock T.T
I think I'm about to cry :(
Who knows how Cheif dies he could have sliped in the shower 5 years before the vet gave his interview.
Even though I doubt John 117's man-musk ever stinks, but you have to wonder what it smells like under the armor that he's been wearing for a very, very long time. Though I'm sure he has no problems picking up cyborg chicks with his overdeveloped cyborg testicles.
"Who knows how Cheif dies he could have sliped in the shower 5 years before the vet gave his interview"
ha ha that was some fkn funny shiii, I'm still laughing
HHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOO OOOO !!!!
I want that music playing while I'm finishing the fight...muffle the sounds of the grenades and gun fire etc. And just have complete chaos. That would be SOOO INTENSE!!! AND DEEP.
I got so scared when the brute was holding Master Chief's body, then when I saw the grenade I started laughing. I can't wait for this game.
unless the game goes into a cg movie taking control away from me, I'm blowing every last bit of covenant and flood straight to HELL!!! FINISH THE FIGHT MUTHAF*CKAS!
I've cried when I broke bones, my grandma died, and when my girlfriend and I broke up....but I've never cried from a video game. That may change.
That commercial was bone chillingly awesome!
Master Chief is one dead Space Marine!
I hope we hav that amt of intense action in the game... the ad really builded up a lot of emotion and drama in it.. Amazing add, thanks bungie and the hollywood guy for pulling this off.. this is truly amazing stuff.
that was in one word probably one of the most impressive ads ever, that Diorama is a true work of art and to think it has actually been built by human hands is just amaazing
Coming soon to a museum near you! http://kotaku.com/gaming/ga...
I wish I could see it in person. =]
"You are all of you, vermon arrgh. Cowering the dirt thinking what?....that you might escape the coming fire? Your world will burn until its surface is but glass!!!"
NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! **play Halo music, Master Chief enters**
damm, Iam so fcking ready for this game, that ad was fkn sweet, Master Chief has no equal, bring it on Chief I got your back, and soon millions more will join us to "Finish the Fight!", Halo3 has that Epic feel that reminds me alot of the 300=
I'm going to shove that grenade so far up this guy's @ss, he's going to...............uh, blow up........uh, really, really loud, yeah! (chanting Halo theme like monk)

That was great!
I think Halo 3 won't be very Fooly Cooly. Is the essence of a cooly cooly trip to be fooly?
LSD can make a man do weird things.
*You just got called out.*
It's good to see Microsoft is making some good ads!
And i cant wait, tell you what though, celebrities suck
as a digital media designer, all i can say is: Well done!
And this better not be the end of the HALO UNIVERSE!
