Halo 3: Recon Is 5-6 Hours Long, "Not A $60 Title"

Someone's already got their hands on the Halo 3: Recon-themed December issue of Game Informer. Spilled the beans. Those beans tell us that, as you could probably have guessed when you first heard it spoken of as an "expansion", Halo 3: Recon is only 3-5 hours long. Which is pretty damn short. Luckily, then, it'll have a pretty damn short price tag, Bungie's Joe Staten saying "we do not view this as a $60 title". Hopefully he means $30, and not $59.99. Also mentioned is the fact the expansion will allow users to unlock the previously unlockable Recon armour, provided you've completed the Vidmaster Challenge achievements.


Title should say 3-5 hours long. Kotaku put its spin on a 360 article, again. Go figure.

The story is too old to be commented.

I wonder why Epic decided to charge the full $60 for it

Lord Shuhei Yoshida3651d ago

Halo game not worth 60 dollars

360 console not worth 60 cents

Capt CHAOS3652d ago (Edited 3652d ago )

if it's going to be cheaper as it sounds like the company is saying. I'd rather have that and my Halo 3 until Halo 4 hits the stores in a couple of years..

I hope it has online too, that's where it matters the most.

We have to wait 12 months for it and it's only going to be 6 hours?

sonarus3652d ago (Edited 3652d ago )

how come story says 3-5 hrs but title says 5-6hrs?

Why do i get a disagree for asking a question?

Tubby McNutsack3652d ago

They should just rename this expansion pack to Halo 3: Ripoff.

thor3652d ago

Halo 3: Ripoff indeed. We all know that however bad this expansion turns out, it's going to be lapped up by millions of people. I think they ARE going to try their best to make it as good as possible (Bungie don't want to spoil their reputation), but it's still milking the franchise.

I really hate the way that big names sell more than great games. Look at the popularity of Fifa, Smackdown, GTA etc.

You get the disagree because people are idiots. Mostly because they don't know what disagree means. Clearly it means you disagree that someone is asking a question.

My question to them. If you think 1.2 isn't asking a question.. what is he doing?

wetowel3652d ago

Probably gonna be released in february to combat killzone 2. Thats my guess.

Sitdown3652d ago (Edited 3652d ago )

for 3 to 5 hours ($10 to $6 per hour) seems a little too steep for me. Especially when you consider online only games selling for a couple dollars more that allow hundreds upon hundreds of hours.

shortax3651d ago

it is also dropping some new multi-player maps as well

It's not a $60 title. It retails for $59.99. Maybe it will be cheaper. But I will believe that when I see it. I remember the Gears 1 DLC pack that was going to be free and then Clifford blamed that on Microsoft. And there have been numerous other cases.

I really like HALO and no matter the price I will get it. But I am not buying into such a vague comment until I see retail proof.

Why does Kotaku have the title 5-6 hours when Joe Staten says 3-5. Spin baby, spin for your money.

Mr PS33652d ago

This should be DLC for 200 credits
Or whatever it is the Dummy BoTs pay with

pp3652d ago

3-5 hours long and it probably still sell millions.

Tubby McNutsack3652d ago

And you're happy to say that? It just shows how retarded and blind Americans are for buying EVERYTHING that has an armored man on the cover holding a gun.

Algullaf3652d ago

looool 3 hour hahahahahahahahahaha poor pp(idiot) Microsoft paid 3party too much that they dont have money 4 1 party to make a full game come on pp(idiot) just buy a ps3 and leave the dirty ass business to them really all they want is ur money they rip u off with live acc and soon pay to play again there games is u that dumb to still support them or u work 4 them and get paid like other cheap website did really i cant understand all what ur doing even its not fun get ur self a life better than stay trolling 4 nothen on every news bcz really micro nvr care 4 ya and nvr they will

ReTarDedFisHy3652d ago

pp is right, it's Halo. It will still sell... I'm a fanboy, but not blind nor ignorant.
