Oh, Bungie...you have a leaked game on the loose. Yesterday a YouTube video was uploaded featuring a French guy unwrapping his brand new Halo: ODST copy for the whole world to see.
You and all the other PS3 fanboys that are going to comment on this thread
fix your teeth yet? Did you get your Diet ps3rd yet?
still gona sell over a mili in 24hr
But that dont mean its a Good Game It Just Means That there a lot of Dumb BoTs just like your Self Willing to buy another Halo Game that is Complete Crap Now Bend Over P.S Knock Knock Who's There ? Jack Jack Who ? Jack Meoff !!!
$50 million dollar Killzone2 hits the bargain bin less than six months after it's release And was bundle at launch so it could sale 1 million. And is given away for free with every ps3 purchase + MGS4.
what is this "bargain bin" stuff you always say about killzone 2? you can't take the heat? 60$ is mighty expensive for it to be anywhere near the bargain bin
How much did Halo 3 sale in 24 hr? i think it might get close to the same
Shadow you are retarded to use that as a thing to combat with. That is sad as hell, cause obviousely you don't know what platinum for ps3 means. I remember along time ago that many bots were arguing about how if it doesn't sell a million its a flop. Now that, that is happening bots now decide to compare it to halo sales, and saying that if it doesn't sell more then it , its a flop. Sad
no whats sad is you bringing up the PS3 in an article about a 360 exclusive. and speaking of bargain bins, the PS3 aint gunna sell anything until it is in the bargain bin. Thats what happened with the PS2, as soon as it hit bargain bin prices the console f*cken flew out the doors and into peoples homes, it was spreading fast than herpes in a nudist colony. And as we all knoiw went on to be the best selling console of last gen.
Will ban this guy to the year 9999 like they did for the guys playing Halo 3 before it released.
And Today a Video of the same Guy trading it in And you can hear this French BoT in the video saying to the Guy who sold it him "Le Poo Poo" What ever that means
it means Nelson M smells like sh!t
you bastard....you made me laugh... *shakes fist* "le poo poo" ahahahahahh thas genius props.
I'm surprised it won't be uploaded to thepiratebay by Monday. And this game will still sell Millions it's Halo after all, things are usually popular for a reason and I can see Halo is a good games just not a game for me.
ODST is looking different from the Halo formula so it's worth the rent to see if you like this version. I'm excited for Firefight mode in particular. Horde modes are always a blast with friends.
ODST singleplayer does look different but I have come to understand the online is similar... and for that reason I'm skipping. Plus it's Halo and throughout Halo 3 I was just wanting to play and skip the story.
Why does this always seem to happen outside the US? Also, if the game is done then why not release it already?
I don't see how anyone could skip out on Halo because of it's gameplay. It's some of the best online play ever put together for crying out loud. A game like Halo made for co-op is a must buy for me. BACK ON TOPIC: Leaks suck
Single player of Halo 3 was blah, but multiplayer was incredible. Can't wait for this game.
has always been fantastic. even if i get bored after playing it for a while. yeah and it will probably sell millions which is where i see a problem. its like halo gets a free pass to sell millions because it has halo in the name. that sucks, they can pretty much stop trying and it'll still sell. maybe thats why they're still using the same old engine on halo 3. with halo odst, i'm not sure yet, are they using the same engine and mechanics as the previous halos? and what exactly is firefight? isn't it just deathmatch?
Microsoft and Bungie are trying to capitalize on the christmas season, that way people looking at buying a system will consider buying a 360 with a new Halo or a PS3 with a new Uncharted. Bungie has said that they finished the game in July.
meh who cares is a leak really news worthy? I mean the only reason Halo is still gonna sell millions is the same reason COD is gonna sell millions. You KNOW your mates who you play online with are gonna get it so you have to get it to keep up. People get games like this for that reason not because of how good it is so will still sell in the bucketloads.
and normally games retail at 70 euros a pop! seeing as this is at 50euros makes me question the authenticity of this vid. although, halo odst is cheaper than normal games going by the many web-sites i have visited. unfortunately there isn't a saturn near where i live so i cant confirm or deny this!
"Microsoft France has issued an official statement stating that anyone who is caught playing the game will ultimately be banned from Xbox Live." Good, they deserve it.
....is nothing sacred anymore?!?!?!
this means it'll be leaked soon on the internet!!! thats when ill be getting it :)
Hah, be sure to unplug your Xbox from the internet if you're going to play it before release. Being banned for 9999 years doesn't sound very fun. PS: I don't condone the use of pirated games.
I don't condone piracy but i also don't condone dev's overcharging for an expansion either :(
It's funny how Microsoft banning system works perfectly for protecting themseve sbut the console doesn't work quite aswell.
@ Keabrown79 Very true, very true indeed
Yeah, I don't condone stealing either but when I look at a Lambo I say that it isn't worth it so I'm going to just go ahead and steal it. I'm sure the police will understand when they arrest me for grand theft auto.
Ahh i hate street dates, thank god for certain peeps that break them.
Yoyu should pay for your games like the rest of us.
you pay full price for WoW and look who much the players are getting out of that. Sometimes the price is justified.
Pirating is such a harsh word. But then again, it isn't exactly Robin Hood. Fortunately for you; however, is that I believe the Xbox360 (or entire console market all together) is large enough to sustain full blown illegal requisitions of their game software, without the repercussions PC gaming as faced. Much of the most recent popular hardware, has retained its popularity through the 'encouragement' of illegal software ease of use. Windows, Ipods, DvD players, Xbox, Xbox 360, Dreamcast, GBA, wii, and more, all provide a platform that is easily available to modify allowing the use of illegally replicated software. What I am getting at is that while "Piracy" sounds evil, and unforgiving, avoiding use of the hardware/software actually is much more detrimental towards the company.
Le Poo Poo,that about sums it up for Master Queef Adventures
get a life sony kid, why don't yo go troll a killzone article or MAG one or something...
5.2 - @Peter Yeah, why don't you just go back to playing you little sack doll game pal...."Little Bogus Plantards" What a joke. He has been for years. He loves playing with his sac boy.
Halo RRoDst 640p unwrapped by a french guy!!! oh noez! then later on you see the same guy throwing his copy and 360 out into oncoming traffic
I will make sure of that lol, also not playing with my harddrive so that the achievements I unlock dont give away when I played the game:P
Headshot AHAHAHHAH IT'S ON TWO DVD, never tought that! LOL Only on DVD CAPABLE 360°C MINI-FURNACE
One is the ODST Campaign and Firefight Mode, the other disc is Halo 3 multiplayer with all the maps. Just wanted to clarify fanboys.
Didn't know it was two disks.
One disk for the ODST campaign, firefight, and Halo: Reach beta. One disk for the Halo 3 multiplayer with all 21 maps and Forge/Theatre features.
They put the entire halo 3 multiplayer in it? Neat.
It's 24 maps actually: Halo 3 - 11 Heroic - 3 Legendary - 3 Cold Storage - 1 Mythic - 3 Mythic 2nd pack - 3 (only on ODST) Total=24 maps
They only added 3 maps? Can you play this game with Halo 3 players, or did they purposely make that game obsolete? If they did that, it's a pretty scumbag move. The campaign better be really long for $60.
Yes, you can play with Halo 3 with Halo 3 ODST. To play firefight you have to have ODST. There are 10 new ODST maps, Every Halo 3 map and a full single player campaign. Pretty good for $60. I wonder, what do you think a long campaign is?
Most of the maps are pay-for downloadable maps. Bungie is just bundling all the maps and three new ones into one disk for late buyers. Campaign is going to be a little shorter than Halo 3's, around 7-10 hours according to recent previews. It's not really an add-on anymore.
why would you be banned if you played a game early? its the retailers fault for selling it you not your fault for buying it
especially if you don't know it hasn't been released yet (i know this guy did). however there are gamers out there that don't read these sites. if it is on a retail shelf then blame the retailer not the consumer because the consumer is actually doing what you want and purchasing the game. remember MS, he is your customer and will no doubt buy more games. if it is an illegal download or whatever then fair enough but not an actual retail purchase. gotta love the internet. protecting consumers from douchebag companies since nineteen ninty whatever
Wow, Bungie, how the hell did you let that happen?
A retailer actually made the bad decision of selling the game early.
only bout a month early
The only thing is they track when achievement are achieved. If you get them early. You could be locked out forever the next you go on live. I will happily wait for my pre-order.
"Microsoft France has issued an official statement stating that anyone who is caught playing the game will ultimately be banned from Xbox Live." I want to see this official statement. Back before Halo 3 came out, there was a huge fuss because Argos (A UK Store) leaked it early and Microsoft said the same thing. THen about a day later, completely retracted the statement saying that nobody would be be banned because quite a few people were annoyed about it. There was a completely separate Halo 3 banning incident when people got hold of a LEAKED, non-final version of the game.
I don't see how they can take action against users if they bought the game anyway. Surely the store is at fault for breaking street date.
almost a whole month to do you know what with it...but then again, this is Halo so I don't think it'll even make a scratch. Although I've been wrong before I don't think I am this time so w/e...
You're assuming this one guy will actually rip it and upload it to the internet. It's not a normal DVD, you need to copy 360 games in a certain way. Considering his first port of call was youtube, I very much doubt that he's going to upload it (plus france has decent connections, if he did rip it, it'd be up by now). Still, it IS the retailer's fault for selling it early, not his.
If I can buy a game that I want.. early, I do it. I had Halo 3 a week before release... Gears 2 a day before release... NBA 2k8 4 days before release.. NBA 2K9 3 days before release.. etc.. and I've yet to be banned. I highly doubt MS will ban people for buying retail games early... Pirated games are understandable.. but bootleg? No way.
The Conduit looks on par with Halo 3
gears 2 is on par with kz2 too. thing is, it didnt cost 50 million to do. the sad part is that kz2 couldnt do what sony hoped so bad for, sell consoles:( edit.................... @ bean so i guess an all aroun grey game with red eyes is the pinnacle of super graphics. the online is lagy and glitchy? i see the sony fanatics got you convinced here on n4g huh..
only an idiot would think an UE3 game like GeOW2 has good graphics because it looks "shiny". shiny is not the pinnacle of graphical achievement and plus the online is laggy and glitchy as hell with only 10 players while KZ2 runs perfectly with 32 people online
Air1, I'm not someone who works with 3D graphics and so forth but first of all, I really don't think that changing the colour from gray to let say, green, would have such an graphical enhancement on the game. I mean the games textures and so on wouldn't actually be better just because it would change colour palette. Second, if I remember it correctly, both Gears 1 and Gears 2 are gray/brown as hell too.
The sad thing is that it's actually true.
killzone 2 is a great thing that its given away so cheap its a really great game and it developed a new engine for future game son ps3
