343 Industries has stated that Halo 4 will deliver the "best looking game" ever on the Xbox 360.
an't wait for Halo 4 to release. Hopefully tomorrow's embargo lift will see the release of some good stuff for the game.
this is the only game where i wonder what the multiplayer is going to be like as well as the single player 360 is not my go to system but the halo games so far is my go to competitive multiplayer
343 is a lot more talented than people realize. Microsoft actually didn't cheap out this time, they went out and hired a lot of experience people from very well known companies. I can't wait to see what they've done with the franchise! Halo reach's multiplyer was not very competitive which kind of turned me off from the game altogether, from the things I've read that 343 has said, they're really looking to change that.
Yeah Reach was def a step down in competitiveness from H3 and def H2 but hopefully 343 can bring something back that increases the skill cap.
The twit has already been debunked as NOT aiming to start the usual flame-bait console war banter. She is simply proud of what her team has accomplished thus far and that saying ALOT considering how 343i has got to be arguably the most ambitious collection of development talent in the history of gaming. When the embargo lifts and ultimately down the road when the game releases this holiday maybe we all will share her sentiments. Evil
Didn't the article also say best looking on any console. That is saying something for halo. I hope they are right.
Not going to lie, the graphics look a lot better than Halo Reach. As much as I hated Halo 2's single player, and loved Halo Reach, I still sold my 360 recently because it just became a large USB charging port for me. No offense to the 360 owners, it's a great console overall, the games that were coming out just weren't to my liking, and I've never been a fan of motion based stuff. The last time I turned my Wii on was Super Mario Galaxy 2, and I never did finish it. The PSMove isn't to my liking either. I was going to pick up Gears 3, but was broke around release time, then it just failed to grab my attention enough later when I had the money. I hope Halo 4 turns out to be the game every true Halo fan wants it to be. Halo 1 had one of the best FPS single players out there, only behind the Half Life series, Bioshock, and arguably Metro 2033. It also had some of the best offline multiplayer as well, and Halo 2 has had some of the best console FPS multiplayer as well. I wasn't a fan of Halo 3, and Halo Reach had far too many hackers (i'm referring to the obvious hackers, not just me sucking). In the end, it's nice to see MS isn't ruining the franchise (so far at least), but it would have been nice if they don't focus it around Master Chief. Seems almost like an insult to Bungie. Speaking of Bungie, I can't wait to see what their new game will be.
Ugh. I despise the "OMG! This game will have the best graphics evar!" trends. I don't care what platform we're talking about. And how many times do we have to suffer through this. Crysis 2 was going to be the best game graphically on the 360 and raise the bar. Or was it Alan Wake? Or was it Metro 2033? Or was it Halo Reach? Or was it Ninja Blade? Back in 2006 when Gears blew us all out of the water, I expected that this was it. That was a turning point. We now know what the 360 is capable of and Gears raised the bar and all other games would start pushing the graphical envelope. Then I sat with my 360 and waited for those games to come. And waited. Eventually, Gears 2 came out and was a graphical improvement over the first. Then Gears 3 was a bit better than 2, although that's arguable. Other than that, how many games released on the 360 realistically look better than even the first Gears? It's been years now and it's time to admit the 360 hit it's graphical ceiling a long time ago. And there's nothing wrong with that. Halo 4 will not set some new, graphical benchmark. If it were possible, we'd have seen tonnes of games the same graphical quality of Gears over the years. We haven't.
I'm not a member of the press, so didn't know there are some info scheduled to be released. I can't wait to see what it is! Please make it an in game trailer! :D
http://www.neogaf.com/forum... Frankie's post at the bottom of the page. "Corrine is expressing pride in the team in a twitter character limit, mostly to her colleagues. At no time will you ever hear us 'officially' represent the game in those terms. So uncrank your hype handles a couple of turns. Like how my three year old is the cleverest girl in the world. Let us revisit my statement after she graduates from DeVry." Keep your hype in order guys. Also notice how msxbox-world left out the final word in her tweet "sorry" which was aimed at a troll.
This shouldn't come as a surprise,As most of 343i developers come from high-ranking studios including gearbox,id software,kojima productions,treyarch, guerrilla games and bethesda A lot of them come from Id software and guerrilla games, according to wikipedia. http://halo.wikia.com/wiki/...
yeah you got your info from wikia.com NEXT!
As opposed to finding this info out from where else? You would be surprised in my statement that a lot of the big wiki pages are written by the companies themselves. I guarantee you they're not going to let their name on a website and have false info spread about them.
Wikipedia is actually one of the most accurate sources of information. I remember when I was in High school we had a debate class, one student wrote a direct debate to our English teacher about how Wikipedia is indeed a very reliable website. He actually provided multiple facts and sources that showed, on average, how quickly a false piece of information was correctly changed. Any thing from a recently created Wikipedia page to something as old as how bread was created. In the end, that English teacher now allows for Wikipedia to be used as a source, as long as you also provide the link to the source that wikipedia provides at the bottom of the page. And actually, there were several key members of GG that left after KZ2. A couple of them joined the design team for Bethesda's Brink. I'm sure now they probably regret it, since that game turned out to be complete crap. But they probably also get paid more.
I still say best looking 360 game is Alan Wake
How can you say that when you haven't even seen halo 4,How do you know that that Trailer was not in-game? And Gears of War 3 has best graphics on Xbox yet.
^^ in game really? Not on current gen consoles...sorry.
Imo Gears of War 3 and Rage are the best looking 360 games.
gears 3 is the current best looking 360 game in my opinion. It would be awesome for halo to even have graphics on the same level of gears let alone be the best looking 360 game
come on was 343 gonna say it wasn't? Also can they really make a better Halo than Bungie? Computer says no... Especially since nobody can even get native 720p out of exclusives like Halo. I seriously doubt Halo 4 will be native 720p either.
A small drop in resolution allowed them to add HDR, 4 times the texture resolution, large-scale areas, advanced particle effects, etc. They can make a 720p game if they want. It just won't have a stable framerate.
I can live with the Halo franchise not having a native 720p resolution. The micro-detail placed into Halo: Reach was a pretty big testament to what the Halo series can look like. Also, the incredible anti-aliasing and character models helped as well. http://images.wikia.com/hal... http://cdn.planetxbox360.co...
Not that it matters but neither console can do 720p and good fps without causing issues and the ps3 due to its limited bottleneck ram is worse then the 360 in this dept. Unless its a linear game and then they both do ok.
crysis 2 looks fantastic too
Should be interesting, although I'm wondering if Microsoft would want to release this game along side Windows 8 instead of just releasing it on the 360. Either way it will be interesting to see what 343 Studios has done with the series.
That would actually be a good idea, not that they need to do it to sell W8 becuase a new windows will always sale. Unfourtunatly MS will not do this day one but might do it a year later. Who knows maybe 343 can make majic and make it look 5 times better on the PC than on the 360.
Hopefully this halo will be available for PC since windows 8 and Xbox live will be combined. Might find out this week during GDC. Halo 4 maxed out on PC sounds pretty good to me.
Cool, but I hope the world feels as awesome as it was in CE. Great Graphics are nice and all, but for some reason I never got that sense of awe playing Halo 3/Reach like I did when I played #1.
I agree with you about halo 3 but to me reach was the best game so far this gen.
Yeah Reach was what I would've liked HALO 3 to look like when it first released... The time Reach released the graphics still looked last gen but looked 10 times better then what HALO 3's engine looked like
I more want a Halo 2 feel in multiplayer and single-player. The Halo games this generation have felt like they were trying to match competitors too much rather than do something new in the Halo world.
the first day i bought a xbox, i knew nothin of halo. it said goty on the box so i bought it. enjoyed the hell out of it, so much so the moment i beat it i started a new game and kept playin. halo will be very hard to top even with sequels imo. cause of halo i love fps on consoles and have a pretty good skill set to this day
-alpha I agree graphics dont make a great game and the best devs realise that. Shame not many great devs around nowadays. Gameplay over graphics any day of the week.
Halo 2 was much better. The Quarantine level in Halo 2 was a legitimately creepy level.
I agree. Halo 1 was the last time Halo graphics impressed me. I went straight out and bought an xbox the first time I saw it.
@ Alpha I agree, Halo 1 was the best so far. I think they've been getting worst with each consecutive release
Not surprised,ive seen the members of the this game developer.Some of the most know and talented people in the gaming industries are working on this.Also they have ex nasa people who work on the coding it.They have some people from pixar,mass effect,metal gear,i mean. Almost every famous person in the gaming industry is working on this game,i can not wait for this :)
yea but with all these famous people yhey rreally have a lot to live up to, they said there goal is to become the very best game studio in the world, they certainly have the potential with all yhe talent they have but only time will tell.
I just hope they don't stick with Halo so much as Bungie did. They should make a new IP just to mix things up,Make use of all that talent. And the one from NASA your talking about is Corrinne Yu, she is the female John Carmack
343 Industries was created for the sole purpose of overseeing the Halo franchise since Bungie is with Activision now and not Microsoft.
343 Industries is called 343 Industries for a reason.
I can't wait to see the return of MASTER CHIEF!
I'm loving what 343i is doing so far. Halo 4 is going to be great and I'm happy to finally have Master Chief back, its been a long 5 years. Microsoft fans should be stoked about the embargo lift, there is going to be a ton of information released about whats going to be coming for the Xbox 360. Its a great time to be a gamer.
Really? I'll have to see it to believe it. Can't imagine the game looking better than Crysis 2 or BF3.
It says on Xbox 360 only, so it could be better than Crysis 2 or BF3 of Xbox 360 version on its own standard and hardware.
Actually it says "It's the best looking game on Xbox and any other consoles we ever made" so i don't know. Of course it's not going to crazyy looking with all the sandbox gameplay and what not, but as long as it looks as good as crysis i'll be the happiest man.
Frankie (343i Director) had this to say: The best looking game could be anything. Geometry Wars is one of my favorite looking games. Forza. Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet. Crysis. Gears. And let's not even send out a clarion call to Uncharted people. This is not that other forum. We are not children. Accept she tweeted a note of pride in our team and move along.
I honestly hope halo 4 will be much different in mechanics, gameplay and graphics... When I heard that a different stuidio was taking over the franchise I felt glad. I was never a fan of halo's because it felt to generic. Currently I am playing coop Reach and its monotone acting and it simply does not have any epic moments.... feels like im playing a more polish version of serious sam games. A good direction is to put some RPG elements in the game i.e. rage style or even further deus ex.... but that might be too complex for the mainstream ;)
wow dude, people love Halo not because of graphics. It is the balance,fun 4 coop, and MP gameplay that make it what it is today. I sure hope they don't change gameplay mechanic. Couldn't care less if the graphics sucks.
Best looking 360 game eh? I guess all will be revealed soon... The concept art showing the new environments look fantastic though. I hope 343i are able to match our expectations.
I hope Halo 4 is using a brand new engine, but to say it is the best looking game, well that's a tough pill to swallow. I have to see it to believe it. If it looks as great as the Halo 4 Cgi trailer, then yes it has the best graphics.
"If it looks as great as the Halo 4 Cgi trailer, then yes it has the best graphics. " - talk about over hyping Lol
Funny you quote me thanks lol!!! As for the disagrees...No thanks. Shoot the same thing was said for the infamous Killzone cgi trailer for Killzone 2. Halo 4 will be a great game regardless of it having the best graphics or not. Halo and the Medal of Honor series is making a great comeback to beat Call of Duty, that what we all can a agree on. As for,"talk about over hyping Lol," every game always have an overhype status so get use to it.
every new halo game so far (except ODST and maybe CE) has had a new engine. So halo 4 should have one as well. But yeah if the graphics are as good as the CGI trailer I would never question the 360's hardware ever again...
Not entirely true, but a modified engine of the last Halos before the next. This is a new developer that has yet to prove themselves. They could be using a brand new engine.
the pretty much upgraded everything in each iteration of the engines, its like building a computer and upgrading everything but maybe something like the hard drive not at the same time but over time. I would consider that a new PC compared to what was there before.
no worries... when halo 2> reach trailers released.... the fans REALLY though they were watching in game graphics.... To this day you still hear the fans say halo reach is "technical achievement"
You do realize that Halo Reach's trailers and cut-scenes were made from in-game graphics with different camera angles with a tiny bit of polish right? Uncharted 1, 2, and 3 did the exact same thing by the way. p.s. Halo has always used in-game graphics for cut-scenes. The only time I remember Halo being deceptive was that CG for Halo 3, but Bungie nor Microsoft never made a statement saying it was in-game.
@Legionaire2005 You're comparing an outsourced CGI trailer with a not even yet seen Halo game. It was just a teaser to show the master chief is back, nothing more, nothing less.
Yes , they're using an engine built from the ground up just for Jalo 4. Can't wait till tomorrow for the unveiling.

I'm excited now bring it!
it better be... the franchise deserves it!
It would be disappointing if it didn't have the best graphics on Xbox..
best looking game doesn't mean best graphics
then what does it mean
Best graphics, means the most realistic. Best looking, means the best art style.. That's the way I look at it, anyway. If that's what he meant? Who knows.
Best graphics - best on a technical level. Resolution, AA etc...most photo realistic Aesthetics is basically art style and personal preference. Okami:
