Jazzking writes " In regards to all the other big FPS games coming out this holiday season (like ODST), why will Section 8 wipe the floor with them?
Our game, compared to a game like ODST, is about as far on the opposite spectrum of the shooter genre as two shooters can get. There is a lot of room for variety and uniqueness in the shooter genre, and we're out to prove that with Section 8.
The reality is that ODST is catering to existing Halo fans while we're going to inject some energy into the shooter genre at large. We are doing a lot of features with Section 8 that just don't exist in the Halo franchise at all. We have full bot support in our Multiplayer and Instant Action modes, and we are focusing on larger-scale conflicts, so we're going after segment of fans that have been ignored for a long time. If ODST is considered great vanilla ice cream, Section 8 is like delicious cookies & cream. Vanilla is tried and true and popular, but a lot of people crave something different, and that's what Section 8 will deliver.
Section 8 is going to have some incredible appeal, and gamers won't go back to vanilla afterwards."
