The above video is a Youtube clip of the supposedly leaked ending to the upcoming megahit Halo 3. Warning: Major spoiler ahead so don't click play if you don't want to ruin the experience.
Disappointing ending, yet again Bungie.
That video looks lame. Granted I know nothing about Halo, but I got bored after about a minute...
That just sucks. I thought they said they'd focus more so on the story this time than the 2nd game? I can't believe they'd allow this. It's meant to be the flagship title and they cant even compensate for the story. Lets hope the actual campaign is better otherwise bad reviews will lead to the ultimate fanboy war.
What a lousy ending. Fans pretty much hated the Arbiter in Halo 2... so let's have more Arbiter in Halo 3, hooray! The audio and video in the clip were pretty poor, so I had a hard time distinguishing some things. A very somber and boring finale, if you ask me. Hopefully some ridiculously huge boss fight preceded that cutscene. A bad ending isn't going to stop anyone from getting this game, though -- just look at Halo 2. It will be interesting to see how this is received, ratings-wise. Oh, and I wonder if there's a scene after the credits, as well.
There is a scene after the credits, MC doesn't die. The ship split in two when it went through the portal.
Another crap halo game.. so much for NEXT GEN? LOL
I don't see what that has to do with Next Gen. Bungie isn't great with storyline but the gameplay I can say is fun and is what really keeps Halo alive.
Why would you judge the entire game on it's ending cut-scene? Ugh
Actually it was the worst of all 3 games.
Well since when did Halo have a good story? When you play the campaign, the story has nothing to do with the levels you play. You run, you shoot, you finish. Next level. You run, you shoot, you finish. Next level. No-one cares about the story when playing. Unlike a game like Metal Gear Solid where the story ties heavily into the gameplay
Your saying FPS don't have to have a good story line? Well as you mentioned, its all about moving and shooting so you'd expect an actual story with it wouldn't you?
If someone says that MGS has a great story, did you even finish MGS2!? That game had the most nonsene ridden dialogue I've ever had to endure in a video game. (See attached videos) The game totally rips you out of the storyline by reminding you that you are playing a video game. The insane babble of your cohorts over your radio is nothing buy annoying jibberish. They even go into details about being a "North american web worm in my former life". MGS2 was a failure as far as story and dialogue go. It felt like Kojima and Konami decided there was no way to tie up all of the loose ends and story pieces, so they just let it all fall apart.
was the worst in the series... (a friend of mine, big MGS-fan, told me that, I never played MGS on PS1/PS2) but this ending really stinks.. and MGS2 had nothing to do with that...
*Going to be way offtopic here, so if you want to read about halo and not MGS skip this comment* This part has everything to do with the story. if those codec conversations took you out of the story, then chances are you got lost somewhere else in the plot. You see the whole raiden section is a simulation, S3, or solid snake simulation. So that they can try and replicate big boss through training instead of genetics (didnt work out perfect for solid/liquid). So raiden IS playing a game, and when the colonel starts telling him to put down the game and go do something, its still in the context of the story, he is not telling YOU(the player) to stop playing. The part from your video is probably one of my favorite MGS sequences. You get so many freeky and random radio messages (which ties into the story because the AI that is controlling the colonel, which has only been an artificial program in the simulation, is going haywire) That part of MGS is a mindfuk, but it all goes WITH the story. The problem is that the story in MGS2 is so cryptic that many people have a hard time following it (apparently it is also poorly translated near the end, which makes is even harder to follow). Point is: that part is designed to break down the fourth wall, to trip you out, and make you think. Make you question reality. Art is in the eye of the beholder, and this part was one of my highlights of any MGS. I respect your opinion if you didnt like it, but it sounds to me like you werent paying close enough attention to the story for the end to click together. @7.3 MGS2 is considered by many to be the worst game because at the time everyone was so upset that you are playing as raiden instead of snake most of the game. MGS2 is infact a great game, but the story is notoriously convoluted.
That ending was weak as hell, but what you gonna do, I was expecting something more like how Gears Of War ended, but oh well, I'll still get the game, just not as excited to end it now. Also leaves a big question mark about their being a Halo 4.
Funny... I didnt want to see the video and I will not see the video. Do you know how are the people watching and commenting on this game ending? People that will not get Halo people that are not interested in Halo and people that have a mission to discredit this game at all cost. In another word.. no matter how the game ended, no matter how the game played or looked.. they will always have something negative to say about this game. Even if this game ending sucks... I can care less as long as it gives me so many hours of fun and 2 minutes of an ending that sucks.
If you don't want to ruin the ending for yourself then don't read and reply in a story that is about the ending (someone has already commented specifics). This same logic applies for all stories. If you don't care or don't want to know, then just don't read it, or comment on it. How hard is that? Honestly though, who did you expect to comment on this? People who actually cared enough to pay for this game?
before you open your mouth. if you didn't watch the VID then STFU. ending sux....but im sure the game will be great.
what you just said happened to this game is what YOU do to every ps3 game. i agree with your post, but you should practice what you preach. just because a game isn't on a ms system, doesn't mean it can't be good.
a typical over hyped game.
Where are the reviews of this game???????
SO I take it he dies then? Picture and audio quality is crap.
No, MC survives and is lost in space. He just goes into cryosleep. Who knows, next Halo game might take place 100 years into the future?
minus the arbiter part.. but what i cant figure out is....why did snape kill dumbledore? now thats a real mystery, someone should go call scooby doo and the gang
EVEN BIGGER SPOILER THAN HALO 3 Snape killed Dumbledore because he gave into temptation and put on one of Volermorts Horcruxes which was disguised as a ring. Snape managed to contain most of it in Dumbledore's hand, but ultimately it would consume him, so Dumbledore told Snape that he must kill him.
hey everone is this a real ending I really hope not?
It's completely safe to watch. It doesn't ruin anything! This is just a cutscene that probably happens somewhere in the middle of the game. Just go watch it already!
Yes it's real
how you know?
What a stupid question!? First you ask if it is legit, then guy tells you YES (so obvious BTW) and you ask "how do you know?!" Ughh
and how can people agree/disagree with a question like that?? that's just dumb...
that is pretty lame. i thought the ending to gears was pretty crap too. i mean it leaves it on a great cliffhanger, but i just didnt like it ending so abruptly
I think this is authentic. We all know there are a number of illegally sold copies floating around out there, like in Norway. Well, The Sony equivalent to The Arbiter would probably lay somewhere close to Raiden. Personally, I don't dislike the character, but to put an end to MC in such anticlimatic way is lame. I have a feeling the the story is going to be lame, as well. Surely, though, most people play this game for the multiplayer, but the story, to me at least, is very important. Seemingly lame. Ultimately, though, I doubt MS would kill off MC. That would be like Nintendo killing off Mario-LOL. MC wants to juice this series for as long as they can, and to do that they need MC. I have a feeling that this game is going to get an average score on the gamesites of 8.0. Nothing more. I guess letdowns like this hurt so much more when a game gets to overhyped. Bungie can't make an ending good if thier lives depended on it, why didn't they just enlist one of the author's from the books (which blows away the story from the game?).
Great points but it will get straight 10s from 1UP stuff! Who wants to bet?
and i aint just saying that as a sony fan! what worries me is the lack of reviews, surely people have played the full build!? its starting to remind me of movies, when they dont live up to the hype they generally dont allow people to review it before release... i hope this isnt the case for every xbox owner out there! oops double post sorry... sh1tty work pc...

OMG that was so gay(I'm sorry to anyone who is on this site if they are gay for saying that) I can believe it ends like that. WTF it should have been 100 times better then that, BUNGIE are you serious $160 for all three games and you tell me this is the ending that we get. I'm not even going to bather playing the campaign I think I'm going straight to the multi player. I'm no HALO fanboy but I love the story, and that is why I played HALO(I never really cared for the multi player until now) but i have a lot of respect for the series but you can not tell me it ends like that NFW. Look is anyone else on this site as mad as I am about the ending because I know I'm not the only one.
You're not a fanboy but you "love the story", you now care about the MP, you "have a lot of respect for the series" and you are "mad" about the ending? That to me seems like a contradiction.
Yes I respect it because it is a good game ask anyone has played the game, even devs have said they respect it. Yes I do like the campaign for HALO(at first that is the only reason why I played the game). And the reason why I am interested in the multi player is because my girlfriend little brother plays HALO 2 online all the time and I'm going to play it with him so we have something to do together so we can boned(that's the only game he really plays much so it makes sense for me to play HALO with him). I just started playing HALO around December a month after I bought my 360, I never own a XBOX so this is my first time. So if you think I'm some XBOX or 360 fanboy think again never was never will be. I own both the PS3 and 360, and I don't care to take any sides. Hell I will defend both and will tell the truth about both companies if need be. Both companies need to get their sh1t str8 and that's the truth. So please if you were going to call me a fanboy just chill my friend cause I'm not. It's funny how people on this site calls me a fanboy, just yesterday someone called me a PS3 fanboy and now you may be thinking I am a HALO/360fanboy. This site cracks me up but hey I still love it and come here everyday lol. It's like you can't like both console, like there's some rule stating you have to choose a side. I just don't get it and it sucks because when I was growing up during the SNES and SEGA GENESES days it wasn't really like that. No one got on your case but now it's totally different and it's wrong but no one realizes that. To JokesOnYou: i don't care if someone is a SONY or 360 fanboy, I just don't want people labeling me as one. And most of all I don't people telling me I should take a side because I won't I never did and I never will. I always tell it like it is weither you like it or not, but people hate that they never want to see the truth when it's right in their faces. I don't like some of the things that SONY is doing and I hate some things that MS is doing as well and I will tell it like it is. But when I do people call me a SONY/360fanboy(mostly 360fanboys call me out and label me a SONY fanboy like yesterday and in the past guys like "TheDude" and "razer") that's when I have to clear things up to let them know.
you end up contradicting yourself, so save the bs for your weekly sdf meetings= look at your post history, spaming with anti-micro crap over and over again?, and your past comments sure is hell arent those of a neutral gamer anymore than mine are comments about how great I think the ps3 is, difference is I dont hide behind some neutral flag, hell I respect nasim more, even if he sounds ridiculous, you're just a sad pathetic sonykid, but yeah just like the rest of the sonykids you can't wait to play Halo3 either, of course online they must bash it to get their daily sdf membership points, dont worry sonykids Sept 25th is almost here and we can all get to "Finish the Fight!"= JOY huh, deadend are you still pretending? you spamm this site with a bs youtube post with some podcast about micro wanting devs to downgrade the experience for 360 games, it had a real fanboyish slant to it, but the thing is I dont have a problem with the news itself but you were off topic in like 10 threads in one day posting it over and over again, its in your comments, that doesn't sound like a neutral gamer to me, it sounds like a sonkid spreading his agenda
r u retarded? What's with all this "JOY" bull$hit at the end of all ur stupid comments open ur curtains and go outside m8 you just seem like that annoying kid that gets on people's nerves at school.
now my feelings are hurt, who knew the truth hurt so much for you sonykids, I guess I will STOP putting that at the end of my posts so that I dont get on your "nerves" anymore= JOY
This is not guaranteed to be genuine.
Aww man what a bad ending even worse than the 2nd halo. Why bungie, WHY!?
And it does look like the ending, but nothing I saw spoiled anything. Sony fanboys are so desperate for bad Xbox-360 news. Hopefully we can repay the favour with the Killzone 2 ending.
i think you'll find some of the people who were dissapointed with the video where both unbiased gamers and 360 fans! also.. "Hopefully we can repay the favour with the Killzone 2 ending"... you wish a poor ending to a ps3 game purely because you got one with halo? that shows to me that you are a fanboy first and a gamer second... sad
"Hopefully we can repay the favour with the Killzone 2 ending." I think the groupthink is getting to you Tudors. Whats to stop anyone who wants to play Killzone 2 at some point from NOT clicking on the story that says "Killzone 2 Ending Leaked" lol. whats to stop any halo fan who doesnt want the story ruined from clicking in here. Everyone should know that the information released/leaked is usually ramped up in the weeks leading to the street date. If your highly anticipating a game, I would try to stay away from gaming message boards, game news sites, and maybe the internet in general. But you should atleast know to stay away from a spoiler like this. I am sorry to anyone who's unintentionally learned something today they wish they hadent.
halo 3 is the most overhyped piece of media of all time, even thgough master chief is actuaslly alive, we find out after the credits, tgis is still a [email protected] ending - i'm not being a fanboy, i'm just stating MY OPINION
that we have not seen what led up to the ending, also how can you get the full effect in a Youtube video? how hard was the ending etc.
i agree with you but one thing: if that voice acting is an indication of what to expect in the game- then don't expect much. that was awful.
well... judging from Halo2's story... this isn't that much better(some how i feel like looking at the original Halo ending there for a bit @[email protected]) Hell, Halo's story department have been crap ever since they made it into a trilogy. Buy hey... on-line still gona be solid.
fanboys lol so funny. ending crap in halo 3 omg its the end of the world lol, talk about milk it. Most storys in games are crap anyway.
halo, as most of the 360 fans on here would agree isnt 'most games'. i think you'll also find some of the dissapointed comments above are from 360 fans! did you even watch the video? edit: if you just want to play the game why not write that in your comment, rather than use put some pointless crap about ps3 fans, to me it shows bashing ps3 fans is more important to you than halo3.
I think people takes things a bit to seriouly in this world. And yes i did watch the video but i didnt see the build up to and im not judying a game on a 2 min ending video on youtube lol. Crap ending are so sad lets all cry :/ I just want to play the damn game.
and who are these 360 fans on here who are dissapointed?, please dont say you, well then again go ahead I love Jokes= JOY
You could say that... But I've played SotC, Ico, GOW, DMC, Heavenly Sword, Lair, Half-life, Resident Evil, Final Fantasy, and MGS... And...those all had pretty good storylines...
resistance, god of war 1/2, resident evil4 and bioshock were great. halo is supposed to be one of the best series of all time? not without a good story and ending.
So what happens to the chief? Did i miss something? I watched the vid and i hardly think it sucks like everyone is saying. It seems like a proper ending to me but i guess i am a minority.
sony Fanboys/halo fanboys lol for you m8 but i dont really take notice of storys.
..Ship out of control, MC & Cortana rig the ship, MC says "we'll make it, then everything goes white. The ship blew up, man. He's "dead."
I disagree. The arbiter was in the front of the ship so if they died he would also be dead. Or did i miss something? My guess is that you have to beat it on legendary or wait until after the credits to she the rest of the ending.
If you are right, it will take a lot of credibilty away from the reviewers. As far as 1UP, I will disregard whatever they say, as usual.
I dont think the ending suck, but I know alot of PS3 fanboys will.theres no other game bigger than Halo on the xbox an the sony camp want nothing more than for this game to be a flop. guess what even if it did turn out to be a mediocre game it will still make MS more money than killzone is gonna make sony!! bet it!!
It doesn't matter how good the game is...you will still buy it. Ever hear of Halo 2? I'm a pretty big Sony supporter, but I don't want this game to FAIL! If it failed, it would make the entire industry look bad! That's not something I want Microsoft to do AGAIN. Seriously though... Haze... UTIII... Killzone 2... COD4... ^all going to be better, I'm pretty sure...if even for the storylines
That was the most anti-climactic thing I've ever SEEN! I know the Multi-player will be good...but will it be UTIII good? Or even Warhawk good? BTW...Warhawk is amazing. Personally, I think I'll just play through Bioshock and cry some more instead of wasting my time on a lackluster storyline.
And we don´t know if there is a cutscene after the credits. Halo CE had it, Halo 2 as well. Hell, we don´t even know what MC was doing before that cutscene. Maybe there is another cutscene that´s linked to this one. And the poor quality. Well, I can just say that I think it´s better when you see it with your own eyes, and not like this.
this is true. the cutscene in resistance that came after credits really added some mystery. but in this case, a scene would have to finish the story. not sure they could do that in one scene....maybe
but I'm still not going to watch it.
if that's the case, would the game play exactly the same? it seems, if there would be more story added at the end, then there would have to be some additional gameplay added the second time through. that would be really cool if it were like that.
Write some comments that makes sense and got some logic in it.
