There is that "eyecandy" picture again. I've seen the new footage of Halo 3 on GT and IGN with all the behind the scenes making of extras, but I was soooo unimpressed.

Halo games are fun for the new maps and multiplayer; I'm sure on that Halo 3 will deliver...but compared to Gears of War and other next gen games, graphically Halo 3 leaves something to be desired, which really surprised me. I won't be springing for an Xbox 360 for this one.

I have a beta pass so I'll be able to get a nice taste of what it's all about. I'm hoping the mp portion is another good offering like Hallo 2.

Nice. I'm sure readers would love to see some in-game screenies...as well as get your first-hand opinions.

It's supposed to be Xbox360/Vista only so there is a good chance I'll never play it.

Halo on vista? have any of the other Halo's been released for PC? it was a pretty fun game but the whole contoller for FPS was never to my liking after i played CS for the first time and realized how nice a mouse and keyboard really is.

Halo = FPS for Dummies

Give me a mouse and keyboard and I will destroy any Xbox live player.

There's already Halo Combat Evolved that was released a while ago. Halo 2 is suppose to come out soon on PC too

Unless of course you are a console gamer like myself, as well, analog inputs = perfection in my opinion. Set the look speed to ten and you've got yourself a twitch game straight up, no B.S. fellas. Just wish a console could have the balls of a PC, with DX10 the 360 and PS3 are gonna be obsolete very soon again, which sucks.
