Okay, so... Gameplay doesn't matter in this instance?
All I'm asking for is some consistency here.

I don't believe enough has been shown to tell just where the graphics are, and I get the feeling a lot of people are just reaching. We've got an announcement trailer, a handful of pre-pre-alpha multiplayer screenshots, and some sandbox footage in the Brute vidoc (Half of which was untextured!). Clearly it's time for the jury to reach a verdict on that issue.

When you bring up Gears of War, you're talking about two different development teams. If every game by every developer followed the same time frame for graphics, that might be a sound comparison.

Because the Wii did not exist the past two generations. The GC had better specs thatn the ps2 and could produce better visuals if Nintendo wanted. Look at RE4, it looks better on the cube than the ps2. Now that Nintendo has the Wii remote their placing that above everything else.

That's very true and I know it is really early to be judging the graphics. I'm just saying that this game is supposed to be the biggest game of 2007 and it's mircrosofts biggest game ever. The game has been in development for awhile now, so I would of hoped that the game looked at least a little better than Halo 2, but it doesn't. Of course I'm not going to give the final verdict on the graphics now because that would be ridiculous. I just think the graphics should look a little better than they do now.

When all is said and done I honestly believe that Halo 3 will not have better graphics than Gears of War. I don't even think it will have better graphics than Mass Effect. You can quote me on that too.

There have also been a number of websites that are counting down to the date of Halo 3s release. Halo 3 Count Downis a site that is counting down to the days, hours, minutes and seconds until Halo 3 is released. The only thing bungie will say so far about Halo 3's release date is "when its finished".
Looks like everybody is thinking of November for the release date for Halo 3. I think it's going to be a bit sooner from what other sources tell me (but maybe they're wrong. They say Winter, it seems a bit too soon to be winter). Anyway, if they all say November, and other releases for other games were November, then no doubt it will be November... I think.

Re: Halo 3 Hype Thread

Is it just me, or is Halo 3 not that pretty looking? I thought it looked like a small upgraded version of Halo 2.

Re: Halo 3 Hype Thread

What were you expecting, an awe-inspiring breakthrough of graphical technology(...)? I don't understand some of you. You treat any nintendo product with good graphics as the best thing ever, but then you're overly critical of others, namely microsoft and the xbox 360's graphics, which are usually much better graphics-wise.

Re: Halo 3 Hype Thread

I've only ever played Halo on the PC, just this year in fact. Not the best time to play it as it is getting dated. Was quite enjoyable and the story looks really good and twisting. Waiting for Halo 2 for Vista...and who knows when Halo 3 might come to PC.

Maybe I should buy a 360.

I think Halo 3 itself is a great reason to buy a 360. I'll buy one for RE5 and Halo 3 when I brought up the cash.

I forgot RE5 was going to be on 360 Awsome >.>

I hope Halo 3 can stack up to Gears of War... Damn GoW is good. I'm sure Halo 3 will atleast have a better multi... GoW's is kinda lame.

Mutliplayer should definately own on Halo 3. GoW's multi is pretty lame, but when all is said and done I think GoW will end up with better grahics than Halo 3.

I know your a big Halo fan, but don't get your hopes up about that. Halo 3 is not using the Unreal Engine, and I don't think it will be able to produce visuals as good as GoW. Don't get me wrong, I think Halo 3 will have good graphics, but just not as detailed as GoW.

Multiplayer on Halo 3 will probably be the best of any game on Live though, and I expect Bungie to push the boundaries on Live. Co-op Campaign is a MUST, and it will be inexcusable if they leave it out.

Well, Halo 3 has been said to have "pushed the XBox 360 to the maximum limit" by the developers at Bungie. I saw the behind the scenes of the E3 trailer, and watching it I can already see that the detail in the graphics of the game from that point was excellent. After seeing the TV Ad of Halo 3, I found that the game would be proven to be one of the games with the best graphics (what would you expect when working with a powerful console?). Then there's the fact that Bungie is still developing the game, and it might take another year, or even more.

From what I can see, it is not a good idea to say if the graphics will be the greatest we've seen, or if it would:

Re: Halo 3 Hype Thread

Ok has anyone seen the E3 trailer?

That trailer is using the 'STANDARD GRAPHICS ENGINE FOR THE ENTIRE GAME' so the rest of the game will/should look like that *drools*

Have you seen the new ad >.> Its coming out a year from now... I think Microsofts biggest series will have the best graphics on the series.

It has nothing to do with me being a fan of the series.
