Microsoft was planning to make Halo Infinite their big launch game for the Xbox Series X. The unfortunate delay left little time for an alternative.
Now this is funny. They really Thought the game was coming at launch.
There’s only one way to fix this. https://i.ibb.co/1qjjyBJ/9-...
Gotta change that tagline to "Power your Craig"
Well I cant blame them, whoever works in this kind of thingcertainly has no idea whats going on with the development of the games and that department probably found out about the same time as everyone else
Delay the box art
Exactly, to leave it like that is pretty misleading. Not everyone reads gaming sites like this one, so some might purchase after seeing the new Halo game plastered all over the box!
Sully, you can't be serious. So when I bought a launch PS4, it was misleading for Sony to have Infamous: Second Son on the back? Because that game wasn't available at launch, not for another 4 months. Does that mean Sony mislead me in thinking that I'd have that game day 1 at launch?
Box art looks nice. Power delayed dreams.
Or "Power of delusions"
well you can still play halo on series x as master chief on the ring with halo MCC. so at least there is that.
for real doe
I think I had a console with a box mentioning games which were not available at launch. Or maybe even turned out to be cancelled altogether, but I'm not sure, it was decades ago.
My launch PS4 box had Watch Dogs on the back and that didn't come out until about 6 months after.
My PS2 box had few like those mentioned.
Not an example of that, but I'm still waiting for Bioshock for the Vita.
Is that pic from the PC version? Jk If they can get halo anywhere near that - they'd be doing ok. The delay needs to be worth it and raytracing should be there day 1.
I don't think raytracing is the main issue,.. The problem I see is that whole game looks like something from ps3/360 era,...or like the first cod ghosts on current gen. Don't know why exactly,.. but it just does not look remotely next gen,.. or current gen even. Think Halo 5 actually looks better.
I agree - I was poking fun at the fact that ms was spouting off about Ray-Tracing and that their premier series was going to have it patched in after release.
The only thing Craigs will be looking at is old games, this back cover and the specs sheet.
Dovahkiin or Doom Guy will be taped over top of that.
Delay is irrelevant, Chief is the mascot of Xbox.
Happens all the time, there were games on the N64 box that weren’t out at launch.
Box looks pretty decent imo
It's not like it's canceled so it really doesn't matter about the delay. It is still coming and will be an Xbox Series X game. I don't see a problem with this, especially long term. How long are you going to be staring at the box after you open it?
That is a nice looking box, and extremely odd shaped. Why does it have the same rectangular proportions as the XBox One/PS4 boxes when its distinct design characteristic is that of a cube?
Well it was supposed to be it's big flagship game so I'm sure the box art was finalized long before the reveal demo for infinite. It's pretty obvious the delay really took MS by surprise and it's far too late to change it. Everything from probably June or earlier for the system itself was locked in.
isnt that misleading?
