an't wait for Halo 4 to release. Hopefully tomorrow's embargo lift will see the release of some good stuff for the game.

DarkBlood2544d ago

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

da_2pacalypse2544d ago

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.

Drake1172544d ago

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.


joab7772544d ago

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.

Anon19742543d ago

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

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.

Gamer19822544d ago

yeah you got your info from NEXT!

Arnon2544d ago

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

Gildarts2544d ago

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.

fluffydelusions2544d ago

^^ in game really? Not on current gen consoles...sorry.

JellyJelly2544d ago

Imo Gears of War 3 and Rage are the best looking 360 games.

E2M2543d ago

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

Gamer19822544d ago

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.

kaveti66162544d ago

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.

Arnon2544d ago

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.

Jazz41082544d ago

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.

BattleAxe2544d ago

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.

Patriots_Pride2543d ago

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.

gotgame19852544d ago

I agree with you about halo 3 but to me reach was the best game so far this gen.

WitWolfy2544d ago

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

ThichQuangDuck2544d ago

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.

TENTONGUN2544d ago (Edited 2544d ago )

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

Gamer19822544d ago

-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.

kaveti66162544d ago

Halo 2 was much better. The Quarantine level in Halo 2 was a legitimately creepy level.

Bathyj2544d ago

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.

dantesparda2543d ago

@ Alpha

I agree, Halo 1 was the best so far. I think they've been getting worst with each consecutive release

have the potential with all yhe talent they have but only time will tell.

Gildarts2544d ago (Edited 2544d ago )

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

Parasyte2544d ago

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.
