Could be legit. I guess we will have to wait and see come E3.

zeeshan2607d ago (Edited 2607d ago )

I say Bring it on!!! E3 2012 just might turn super exciting!!

jaosobno2607d ago

Agreed, can't wait for E3 2012. It's gonna be legendary!

Exciting times are coming, I hope microsoft and sony bring monsters to the table.

Your telling me that these are the best titles a console two years away can come up with? Why can't we just get some new games and fresh ideas. And I wish this for all consoles...

Can't wait until the 2020 when I'm playing GTA 10 & Modern Warfare 8

ScubaSteve12607d ago

thats if were even alive by then or how the economic state is

jdfoster2607d ago

I +1 this! And we get a new halo trilogy. I love Halo like.... but I would rather have something new and unique in. TBH I'm more excited next gen for sony's new line up. I mean how many fist party devs do they have now? 15 is it? I mean to look forward to what Guerilla games new IP is, media molecules, Naughty Dogs, Santa Monicas, Sony London, Japan studios, etc etc... I'm just so excited next gen for Sony and what it comes up with. With Microsoft? I'm excited don't get me wrong but just not as excited... More Halo, Gears, Forza ... Is welcomed but I would rather have something new! More Fable... meh... Come on MS I want new IP'S. I want you to surprise me with new Ideas etc instead of me knowing there will always be another fable, gears, halo, forza etc.

i dont think it will take activision 9 years to get to MW8. my guess is in 2016 for mw8

maniacmayhem2607d ago

It's a proven and known IP. All new consoles do this, why would it be any different for the next. And i'm sure there will also be new games announced but not until we get a little bit closer to the release or when a new console is officially stated from MS.

NiKK_4192607d ago

People just need to know when to quit. A trilogy is a good place to stop. Sony knows this. Microsoft and nintendo... Not so much. Even the best games shouldn't do this. Like, I used to love halo, It was my favorite game with counter strike source. But you guys shouldn't want that to happen. You should want new games and not more sequels. If I found out uncharted was going to have 3 more games, I wouldn't like it. There is always a point that you stop at, while leaving it while it's still great.

Well this ties in pretty well with the playstation 4 article saying it could drop in 2013 too. Starting to sound legit

SilleGamer2607d ago

Hopefully an E3 2012 reveal is on the cards! :)

idk its a rumor, i dont trust rumors

SleazyChimp2607d ago

You would think MS would try and work a Halo game in as a launch title. I had hoped we wouldn't see Halo 4 untill the next gen, but I guess this is just a rumor.

SilleGamer2607d ago

A Halo title at launch would be cool.

However, if Gears of War 4 will launch with the console, they may not want the two competing against eachother.

Still good news though!

FragMnTagM2607d ago (Edited 2607d ago )

Who is saying that Halo 5 won't be on the next console? There will be a next generation Halo game, you can bet on that. Maybe not a launch title, as no Halo game has launched with a console before.

Another thing too is that they usually wait on heavy hitters like that as the amount of new consoles out there is not going to be that many. It makes sense to wait until the new machine gets into a lot more houses first to maximize the sales.

On the other hand too, Halo is a system seller so that is a tough decision for MS.

m232607d ago

Didn't Halo CE launch with the original Xbox?

FragMnTagM2607d ago

My bad, I forgot about CE. I thought it launched a few months after the XBOX.

iamnsuperman2607d ago (Edited 2607d ago )

Put it this way launch consoles never sell enough to warrant the major franchise of the xbox brand. Gears is enough to encourage sales of the consoles but for Halo to be released it is logistically impossible. They would have to build millions of units which would cost them a lot (probably to much to have at once). In my opinion Gears will not be a launch title but a little bit after because of its popularity. Why would Microsoft waste a potentially profitable game as a launch title when so many will not/ can't get a console. Look what happened to the Wii. The consoles sold and sold out quickly. This is one reason why major launch titles do not happen. It is best to realise the game when the install base is high enough

SilleGamer2607d ago

Great point iamnsuperman!

The introduction of new consoles is always a great time for new IPs.

People are more open to trying new titles when new hardware is unleashed.

Just look at Resistance: Fall of Man. Great game but it probably wouldn't have sold as much if it wasn't a launch title.
