This is Xbox: "Microsoft is readying up their advertising partners to begin filming for Halo 4 commercials and viral campaigns before the launch of one of this years most anticipated releases from 343 Industries."
The marketing for this game will be crazy Sony take note
Errrmm, i'm sure they've taken many notes. They just don't have the same financial clout to compete with MS.
I've heard they spent 200 million on advertising halo 3. Wonder how much they'll spend this time.
"I've heard" ... "200 million" Meh.
I didn't know they spent THAT much on Halo 3 advertising! Blimey !!!
Lol impossible, they'd need to sell 10 million copies at full price just to recoup advertising and games costs. dark-hollow, you've been grossly misinformed.
It wasn't that much at all. Halo 3 alone cost $30 million to make and the marketing push cost around an extra ~$10-20 million.
No, no they didn't spend 200 million on advertising for Halo 3, it was 10 million. Still alot, but nowhere near your absurd made up number.
Wow, people are still peddling that 200 million Halo 3 ad campaign rumor? That's so 2007 yo. Oh, and it's false. XD
10 Million sounds more like it ! - Halo 4 though will probably have a huge marketing push beyond that. Halo 3 used the popularity of Halo 2 and was the first next-gen Halo. it was going to sell tons (confidentally). Halo 4 on the other hand I think is a risk. New developers, has to live up to a hype, it has to succeed and can't reply on the fan base of previous Halo games - considering that since Halo 3 in 2007, the rest are just average.
Must be non-caucasian ha should be a interesting Halo 4 campaign to build hype before E3
No surprise they'll be live action stuff
I wonder how there gonna pull off the chief in Live action form. From the past few games, MS hasn't disappointed. It's gonna be a good year, I can tell.
Some of the best game commercials ever full stop! I hate to say it but the build up and ads are sometimes better than the game they belong to, I'm looking at you ODST and Reach. Can't beat Halo 3's dioramas though!
Anyone else notice he said it will be released during Fall? So it might be released August, September or October.
