Microsoft: Dual Wielding Halo Games And E3

Gamerxchange: Admittedly I am very excited for Microsoft’s presentation at E3 this year, even more so than last years show when I knew there would be a revealing of a new Xbox 360 slim model. Microsoft unlike most companies is able to keep secrets and bring an element of surprise and wonder to the forefront. We already know what Sony and Nintendo will focus on, Sony is going to devote a lot of time on their new NGP handheld, while Nintendo will talk a lot about their next console codenamed Project Cafe. I am sure Nintendo will also focus a lot of time talking about upcoming 3DS titles as well.

"throw in Forza 4 and the possibility of an Alan Wake expansion pack and the second half of 2011 could easily belong to Microsoft."

2 games a year is much owning, lol.

redDevil872921d ago

That quote made me laugh.

NukaCola2921d ago

Well so far the last bit of the year is shared amongst every system.

Uncharted 3
Skyward Sword

MS having another Halo isn't going to shoot them over the top. One there is tons of games coming out, and two is another COD is coming and that is going to eat Halo alive.

sis151 - Speculating on titles isn't helping your case.

Peaceful_Jelly2921d ago

The point was if you throw in Forza 4 and Alan Wake along with Halo CE and Gears 3, it makes for an interesting second half of the year.

How can anyone not agree? Halo and Gears are two of the biggest franchises around and releasing a game from each franchise and announcing a new Halo sequel for next year would be fantastic!

Not that Microsoft needs to do much, according to N4G Microsoft is dead, has no exclusives and nobody should buy one, yet month after month they are number one on NPD.....SMDH

Enjoy your sales game ;)

The title actually makes me wonder if MS announced multiple Halo titles, would it be see as a good thing or an excess of milking?

Though I would be interested in seeing a Halo space RTS or flight sim.

thebudgetgamer2921d ago

i say if people want them give it to them.

LocO_o2921d ago (Edited 2921d ago )

I agree budgetgamer - my fav two games this gen are Gears and the Uncharted series and I would love to play a new game for both every year.

I hate waiting 2 to 3 years for a game to come out.

LOGICWINS2921d ago

^^Can't wait for Gears to make an appearance on the PS3 :)

UnbiasedGamer2921d ago (Edited 2921d ago )

New games is better then rehash of games which were released 5-10 years ago? As PS2 HD classics? Now some old PSP games too...who is milking what now? This is more like milking old milk but putting it in a new cartoon, and labelling it fresh. Oh Thanks RedHemi300c forget the releases with move support.

Gran Turismo
Gran Turismo 2
Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec
Gran Turismo 4

Mustang300C20122921d ago

Don't forget all of the "remakes" to add "Move" support after the fact.

Because there are many, MANY new games that have nothing to do with either franchise. I love that Gran Turismo list by the way. Not only does it span close to 15 years, but it also includes a few versions that some people never saw, a few demo versions, and even the free versions. More power to you if that list validates your love of Halo.

And where the hell did you find out about God of War Chains of Olympus/Ghost of Sparta HD? I need to find those games asap!

LOGICWINS2921d ago

@Unbiased Gamer- Bubs for logic.

Just_The_Truth2921d ago (Edited 2921d ago )

maybe sony does "milk" a FEW of their exculsive but MS milks all two of theirs. Halo 1,2,3,(4), odst, reach, CE remake, Wars, seriously if the creator of the freaking series are sick of halo doesn't that say something and CB's alreday said he plan on doing more gears and i can guarantee if MS had a handheld they'd have mulitiple halo and gears as well. Can't wait to watch MS E3 though lasts was well........ unique.

jetlian2921d ago (Edited 2921d ago )

you forgot gow betrayal on phones.

truth! halo started 2001 with 6 games so far. Gow started 2005 with 6 games so far

if theres demand why not?

Gears of War 3, Forza Motorsports 4, and the Alan Wake Project could make for a good later half of the years for 2011.

But to say that it would give MS 2011 on a platter is stupid.

That being said, idiots like Tits4Sale'll still find find room to troll.

Personally, I'm pretty excited, this is my first time covering E3 as an entertainment reporter, and I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone will be bring to the table!

Halo4Life :P

Clizz is gonna be mackin the E3 booth babes instead of reporting ;)

yamzilla2921d ago (Edited 2921d ago )

if they announce halo 4 on the next xbox, they will have something on their hands that will be a viable shitstorm of publicity and genuine buzz

if the just say " YAYY another 640p halo game with jaggies all over the place like the last 3"....then....mehhhhh

make a new console, alan wake was a flop commercially, do we really think a medicore adventure/survival horror expansion will be newsworthy

Redgehammer2921d ago

Just curious as to how you see jaggies in the middle of a firefight. I never see those things.

Biggest2921d ago

Most people have eyes. They are the best tool to view jaggies.

Redgehammer2921d ago

Thanks for setting me on the right path. Now I will no longer use my shoes to try and find those pesky jaggies.

AngelicIceDiamond2921d ago

Milking franchises is all they got they don't experiment with new Ip's like Sony does the only new Ip Microsoft has is Kingdoms thats about it I just wish Microsoft would invest in new Ip's a little more.
