So whether the installment of the first-person shooter saga lives up to its hype is irrelevant. Halo is already a certifiable pop-culture and marketing phenomenon.
That's why I hope it fails miserably, I'm not a ps3 or 360 fanboy, I'm kinda in the middle, but even though I like and don't consider halo a religon, I would like it to fail, cause it's just geting to be just too much. it's annoying. people praise this game like if it was the best of all time, and it's simply not. I can't wait for haze to come out, so that I can compare both games and reveal that halo 3 s a great game but not the best ever.
your arguement seemed valid until the Haze part you are clearly a SOny fanboy, the only reason anyone knows about Haze is because their developers took a shot at Bungie Sonyfanboys will jump on anything that can put up some decent compitition compared to xbox 360's shooters Halo 2 vs Killzone Gears vs. Resistance Halo 3 vs. Haze see a pattern?
Sorry, but it won't fail. It has over a million pre-orders which is an amount that a lot of games dream to achieve (many of them being good games).
I agree ! Haze-LO is so awesome, so original ! Have you gotten the new PS3 gamer fuel yet ?!?
I for one consider that the gta franchise is better than halo. I hope killzone 2 kills halo3, but that's kinda impossible.................. considering all the biased websites and press out their.
Don't worry, if any other Killzone title is anything to go by, Killzone 2 will be 2008 "Flop of the Year" It's not hard to crush a series that already sucks.
but your are definately not "down the middle" as soon as you said "I hope killzone 2 kills halo3, but that's kinda impossible.................. considering all the biased websites and press out their. " That's the #1 excuse for a Sony fan when a game sucks on the PS3. It couldn't be possible that the game actually sucks.
This game comes with its own style, not like Haze which looks like a simple FPS, Don,t worry "Spike47" killzone will come out soon or maybe next year.
Yeah ! KZ2 is going to be so awesome, the first one was such a huge success ! 1080p & 60fps just like Sony promised !!! http://www.digitalbattle.co...
The link you provide to back up your claim that Sony promised 1080p and 60FPS for Killzone 2 simply says, "Killzone 2 is undoubtedly one the best looking game on the PS3, but with all the visual quality and effects, some sacrifices had to be made. As we learned at Leipzig Games Convention, Killzone 2 will only run at 30 fps in 720p, not 1080p as many had expected (and as Sony had promised for so many PS3 games). On the other hand, the game looks so good and is so detailed that it’s probably worth only getting 720p. And 30 fps." It says Sony promised 1080p "for so many PS3 games", but doesn't provide an direct quotes from...anyone. Thus your constant links to that site are worthless and mean nothing.
and she keeps me posted on what video game system the kids are talking about. The Wii is a no brainer,all the kids love Nintendos cheap last-gen graphics gimmick console. But to my satisfaction,she says this Halo phenomenon has swept over the classrooms and hallways of her school.Kids draw Master Chief on their school books,desks,you name it. They've gone as far as to even having classroom discussions on the Halo 3 hysteria. This means to me,360s are going to be flying off of the shelves this Xmas to those who don't yet have one,and we're not even considering the adults and grammar school kids. This game MAY do for the 360 what GTA did for PS2.
Because it's the first game (since Pacman) to really become a part of Pop Culture. I've got it on pre-order and even I'm getting sick of it...the next 2 weeks are going to be brutal.
And PS3 people says that Halo 3 copies a lot of games. (Resistance´s Spike grenade for example.) But they don´t say anything about Killzone 2´s cover system, which I think looks like the one in Rainbow Six Vegas. And I think that´s because Halo 3 is standing out of the crowd. In a good way.
The hype for Halo 3 is good for the gaming industry point blank. Fanboys (both sides) will disagree, but it's true. The same goes for a PS3 AAA Killer App game. Look at it this way, most gamers know about Halo (like it or not), but there are some border gaers (parents, casual gamers, etc) who really do not know about the game. Now since there has been so much advertising it's hard not to see the word Halo 3 over and over. This indeed will spark interrest and curiosity. This will bring more people to buy a Xbox 360for Halo 3. Wait...Wait...Wait..So after Halo 3 Obliterates the erart with record sales.people will want to see what Sony's PS3 is cooking...Oh it's MGS4 (just an example) people will then go do the same for the PS3 and the game as it luanches a full scale assualt on the gaming industry. To sum this up, this will bring more people into the gaming arena which will increase sales, profit, shares, etc for the industry. Thus making more companies, game devs , etc to up their game, equals better games, lower prices, better hardware, the list goes on. It's a win win even if you can not stomache seeing Halo 3 all the time. Sony better make sure they hype up their big guns too. This includes Nintendo as well. A Xbox360/PS3,Wii owner.... Edit: Come on, for the 2 disagrees..at least state why...put your money where your mouth is!
Millions of those people still would be disappointed if the game would suck considering million of those people thought the campaign of the 2nd install sucked but not the online and plus this is the only good game on the console and BADBOYEK4 your the dumbass retard Halo 3 is going to suck considering its basically Halo 2 only should be called Halo 3.2.
You are a PS3 fan that HOPES HALO 3 SUCKS,Trust Me it Wont Dumb Azz.
This guy likes saying considering lol.
thats all what it is..."hype n marketing"...
that will be the new thing"downgrade the experience." and bluray gets crapped on for being too big. http://uk.youtube.com/watch... hilarious! as for halo3.it should be good.but it's still all hype. .................mag lev super train..............
Microsoft literally told developers "Degrade the user experience" in order to deal with their hardware shortcomings? What a bunch of retards. No wonder we're seeing more and more 360 developers trying out PS3 development.
lol, the 1st comment on Halo3 news starts with this from a sonykid: Spike47 "That's why I hope it fails miserably, I'm not a ps3 or 360 fanboy, I'm kinda in the middle" ha ha yeah your kinda in the middle alright, in the middle of crying like a lil fkn baby because it hurts your lil feelings that Halo3 is more popular than anything sony has, hey I got a tip for you turn off your TV, dont go on the internet (especially gaming sites with threads about Halo3 like you just did), lock yourself in your room, and stop talking to normal people and guess what you wont have to hear about Halo3, hell I would advise you to keep reading sdf site, but I hear thats all they talk about is Halo3 too= its a lonely world for haters like you deal with it= JOY
I mean.... Why not? Is it a bad thing? why is it?? besides... doesnt it deserve to be advertised? it does hold records ya know. Oh well.. I'd rather see the Halo Franchise being advertised than any other. Kudos
games for 360 are more better than PS3's
