Will PS3 Fans Be Jealous Of Halo 4?

This is a legitimate question as it applies to this year.

For just about every year this generation, PlayStation 3 owners could point to at least one exclusive that was bound to make a big splash. From Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots to God of War III to Heavy Rain to Gran Turismo 5 to either of the last two Uncharted, Killzone, and LittleBigPlanet titles, PS3 owners have typically been able to embrace something that might make Xbox 360 fans green with envy. 

But this year, it almost seems as if PS3 owners only have a bevy of multiplatform titles to look forward to. The Last Of Us has a tentative placeholder date of December 31, which probably means it won't arrive in 2012, God of War IV (which will almost undoubtedly be revealed in a few days) may not launch until next year, and even Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch got pushed. Many of the biggest games are multi; i.e., Bioshock Infinite, Assassin's Creed III, Borderlands 2, Max Payne 3, Resident Evil 6Medal of Honor: Warfighter, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (not official but probable), and maybe even Grand Theft Auto V.

Some will say the best PS3 exclusive of 2012 is actually already here; it's Thatgamecompany's masterful Journey. But we're not quite to the point where digital offerings, regardless of how amazing they are, will likely vie for the ultimate Game of the Year prize. And yeah, it's already out. So unless we're counting on some pretty incredible Vita software - which is decidedly possible - it makes sense to ask: Might PS3 fans be just a little jealous of Halo 4, which has now been confirmed for November 6? They usually have an exclusive (or two, or three) to compete but 2012 looks thin in terms of PS3-only software.

Yes, we'll get Starhawk, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, and we also already have Twisted Metal, but there's nothing to the level of Halo 4. Heck, if you look at Nielsen's poll of the most anticipated 2012 titles, all of the top 10 PS3 games are multiplatform! And that just isn't normal for Sony's platform, where exclusives often have a chance of ruling, if not the sales charts, the review charts, for any given year. So yeah, it's okay to admit a bit of jealousy...then again, if Halo 4 turns out like crap and only proves the gap between the 360 and PS3 has continued to widen, then even the admittedly jealous will change their tune.

Yeaaaaaa, no. The multiplayer games along with the Wii U are more than enough. Besides, Halo was fun 10 years ago. Halo 2 - Reach...not so much.

You mean multi platform.

My neighbor invites me over to play halo every once in awhile. I get bored to tears. Good for the people that like it though. I'll stick with my ps3 exclusives thank you. The fact that there is a dry spell right now is much needed for me as my backlog is way too large.

Gotta mostly side with Jawknee on this one. I like Halo still, but it hasn't been great since the first one (which absolutely blew me away at the time.) Video games have evolved so much in the last dozen years and to appease fans, Halo has clung to increasingly dated gameplay mechanics. Will I play Halo 4? Probably. I'm not a hater, I dig the tech (even if it's not particularly inspired)and I'm usually up for a sci-fi shooter romp. But if I didn't have a 360 I really wouldn't sweat missing it.

Hell no. Halo has never really been good since after the first 2. Which I personally didn't even like. However, there's still an ace up Sony's sleeve. I guarantee it. Not to mention all the Vita exclusives. They still count to me.

I'm super excited for Halo 4, Halo has always been one of my favorite series. You have to wonder if Sony is holding those exclusives for the next gen console to have another huge launch line up just like the Vita, that's my take on it. But I think the Last of Us will be enough once we finally see gameplay.

I think PS-only fans have long since written Halo off from their desire list, what with Crysis, Resistance, Killzone, the upcoming StarHawk, and the whole gazillion other genre similar games out there to fill the hole.

Myself being a day one Halo fan will most definately play Halo 4. Things are iffy with it now that it's not in the hands of Bungie. But seeing that Halo has been through the iteration machine for some time now, perhaps some fresh, but highly experienced, blood may make Halo 4 something relatively different, for better or worse. I have little doubt MS will spare any expense to make Halo 4 everybit as great with highly talented folks.

I still think Halo 4 should've been saved for some newer more powerful hardware. Oh well, that's for Halo 5, right?

that reminds me, they did that also to their original XBox fans. AFter 4 short years they pulled the plug on the Xbox and moved everything over to a new $300-400 flawed and overheat prone machine.
It still amazes me that gamers just kept buying more 360's one failure after the next. It was like an annual console release for some ;)

I'm another day-1 Halo fan, too. I love those games. And while Bungie is no longer making them, I do believe the 343 has many on the team that were former Bungie employees who worked on the franchise. I can't wait for the game to come out. Split-screen, LAN party Halo days are always a good time, in my opinion.

Oh c'on. Comparing the mediocre Resistance and the so so Killzone to Halo is a joke.

I know those are the PS exclusive FPS and you want them to be recognized but seriously they are a far cry from Bungie's Halos and it shows sales wise.

Now let's see if 343 Industries Halo 4 can live up to it's name and hype.

You asked for specifics, so here we go.. I hope you are a numbers person like me.

Since we can all agree that metacritic.com is the best resource to get a general consensus on the quality of a game, let's use that site.

If you factor in all 5 original halo shooters on Xbox and Xbox 360, the overall metacritic score is 92.

If you only count this generations Halo shooters, it is a score of 89.

Resistance has 3 games on the PS3, overall metacritic is 85.

I'm not even going to bother checking Killzone because I know that not only is it lower in sales but it is lower on metacritic. Doesn't take a genius to figure that out..I played the damn games.

So not only is Halo better received by critics but it sells better than Killzone and Resistance.

More and more people have the two consoles for exclusive titles. Ps3 is my top choice but I won't miss out on Halo :D I love doing the Halo games in couch coop. The MP is one of the only I have fun in aswell. As long as they keep the 2 player couch coop and get an interesting story I will get it for sure :D

There might not be any real huge exclusives coming this year but there have been sooooo many that came out in the past couple of years my backlog is quite large as I'm sure lots of other people's is as well. Therefore everybody should be ok on the game front for a while.

I am in no way jealous of Halo 4. I'm jealous of all the free time people who solely own an Xbox have. :) Just kidding but you know what I mean.

I wouldn't say PS3 owners have anything to be jealous about at all. We've had some of the best lineups over the years, that there's plenty to be satisfied with.

But let's talk about Halo. New developer, and its the 4th entry in a mp centric genre. Nothing really to get worked up over. Halo was fun, but Bungie isn't at the helm anymore, and there's way too much competition. Halo has CoD to worry about, why should PS3 owners be jealous over a game that has that much competition? To me it's boring...

Doesn't mean it won't be a good game though. Halo has a large following and it will sell well. But it's not anything I'm really, really wanting as a PS3 owner. All those multiplatform games are going to be more that enough, and Halo 4 won't even be in the mix.

Honestly, the campaign in Halo is almost as important as the MP. It's one of the better stories with more drawn out characters in the first person genre and to me what sells it is the amazing music in the series.

There's not exactly a dirth of AAA space marine shooters anymore, y'know? Credit Halo for being the first one to really get the genre going -- FPS and third person sci fi shooters owe a TON to the original Halo's design, feel, campaign structure, etc. -- but it's just not even a little original anymore.

Couldn't care less. Halo needed to end without Bungie and 3 was a disappointment (didn't play Reach or ODST). Have no interest, the story is being milked and this a pointless sequel. Even if no games came out for PS3 this year, I really don't give two you know whats about Halo 4 because it's a pointless sequel in a series whose story should be complete.

Also I got my big PS3 exclusive this year and that was Twisted. Not the best game of all time or even to the level of Black or 2, but a damn classic multiplayer and solid single player effort still has me playing on a regular basis and will keep me hooked for years.

Also, Journey was great and outclasses the hell out of Halo 4. Even though Journey isn't on the same scale as Halo 4, I'm willing to bet my tuition that when it's all said and done, Journey will be a better game.

Looking forward to Sly 4, hopefully The Last of Us and The Last Guardian (wishful thinking I know), but yes in the long run, 2012 is a somewhat reserved year for PS3 exclusives.

Still, with Starhawk, Sly 4 GOW IV (possibly), The Last of Us (possibly) and The Last Guardian (doubtful) on the horizon, this will be a good year for the PS3. Even if it's just Starhawk and Sly 4 left with a few others thrown out there, the PS3 will still represent itself well.

I saw the graphics for halo 4 looks like borderlands. I laughed for awhile because its obvious the gap has widened i mean no offense to borderlands but Halo was supposed to be realistic not cartoonish. In all honesty Halo 2 and from there sucked. I was a huge fan of halo 1 it was a true fps changer for me but afterwards it somehow got boring. So im personally not jealous at all. A little off topic but, PC has a ton of Exclusives that i am pretty jealous of. The new Amnesia being one of them.

I can't believe there was no mention of DUST514 in the article, seriously!! That is by far one of the most innovative projects to date with console gaming and its exclusive to the PS3 for this year. Seriously if you sat in and watched all the info and videos from fanfest and don't see this game as a great exclusive for this year then you either hate FPSs(which is fine) or your a fool.

I cannot believe no one mentioned this, not in the article and not in the posts, WOW! Disappointing day for me:(

Rogue is absolutely correct.

I have no interest in modern FPS games, or DUST. But it has to be one of the most innovative titles this generation. A complete future-thinking, future-proof game.

Halo 4, is hyped as a famous, familiar series returning. DUST is hyped as the next great innovation and furthermore, it is showcasing what the PS3 has over every othe console, not just in terms of graphics.

I recommend the videos Rogue suggested, they are unlike anything else, like it or not and thus renders this write up (albeit an odd one) invalid.

You should only be jealous of Halo if you actually like and want that game, but have a PS3. Even then, it shouldn't conjure feelings of jealousy, we aren't 10 anymore are we?

Well for one it is essentially the only game right now in development that will carry over to the PS4 regardless of the BC rumors floating around.

It is also far from the generic point and shoot shooters that most games are as of today on consoles(with the exception of MAG). It will take nearly seven years to train all the skills in the game and that is just with the initial skills, they have already said more will come as the game evolves. Then there is the way you can change your characters loadout or vehicle within the game not just from a spawn point. They have also done away with the oldschool idea of a spawn point it is now up to the gamers themselves to build/create spawn points anywhere on the battlefield. The specialization roles are also unique compared to most shooters.

There is a loot system, though they have only confirmed 2 kinds of loot and have not gone into specifics about said loot. There is an industrial role, which they have also yet to release many of the specifics, though they did say one part of it will be building the orbital defences on the planet to protect your team from being bombarded from space. They are also trying to make it where the ice mining will be specific to Dust rather then EVE.

At first it was implied that you would basically have a static ship for the attacks from space, however with the videos they showed it will be far from that. You can and will have space battles(within EVE) at the same time as the ground battles(within Dust). You have CCP setting up a Las Vegas style gambling ring within EVE to place bets on the outcomes of the battles within Dust and they plan on having live feeds of the battles within this(has yet to be developed though).

I mean if you don't see innovation written all over this then I don't know what else to say. And I only used a few of the details of the game. Plus the article was about if we might be jealous over a FPS exclusive, and you didn't mention our exclusive FPS which they also might be jealous of.

I suppose I should have clarified - Dust is the only good LOOKING console shooter this gen.

Every other console shooter is crippled by terrible controls and ridiculously slow gameplay. And about Borderlands, while it is heavily consolized, it's also on PC (which has the best version, in spite of a terrible port job). This also goes for Bioshock, L4D, RAGE, Bad Company 2, Battlefield, and Modern Warfare.

Killzone is a decent, average FPS, but has awful controls. The reason I think Dust514 looks the best is because it supports KB/Mouse cointrol, which means the controls will actually be good.

Atelier may be niche, but it's honestly the only good looking exclusive game coming soon to me. While the previous 2 games did have dated graphics, I don't see how Meruru "lacks next gen quality". Honestly, its graphics are more appealing to me than any of the FPS games mentioned so far (on console, modded Crysis 2 looks absolutely fantastic). And my point in comparing it is that Halo 4 looks mediocre to average - Meruru doesn't.

Well, Memeru does look better. And it isn't last gen graphics, that's for sure. But be honest, man... it's not the best out there. It doesn't even look much better than DQ8 did.

None of the Ateliers do anything special or new. It does what it does well (Rorona had a number of quality issues. Totori was better, but it left out the few strengths Rorona had. Memeru looks like a better collection of strengths)

So while the Ateliers are good, and I enjoyed them, they aren't even close to being the best experiences of the generation. I loved Rorona because it's the type of thing I like. Most people would hate it, and it's overall quality is sub-7. Totori, in my book, ranks in the mid-7 to 8 range. And Memeru looks like it may be a mid 8 (But have to wait and see. Neither you nor I can predict that yet). Either way, it's not the best this gen has to offer, by far. And I know with 100% certainty, Halo 4 will have far more widespread appeal than 10 Atelier Memeru's.

Neither Totori and especially Rorona are next gen-ish. Not by a long shot. They merely do the niche things well. Animations are few, character rendering is limited. Dialogue is shown with still images. Movement even in battle is blocky. (Sterk should look WAY more athletic than he does. And when he jumps with his one attack? Seriously? What terrible looking physics.) It's a good game... but it absolutely is NOT next gen.

I'm sorry, but I find it hard to debate seriously when you emphasize graphics in a debate about CONSOLE games. Do you have any complaints about the gameplay? Because it's some of the more unique gameplay of this generation, especially with the popularity system and the addition of a Mana Khemia-style battle system in Meruru.

Honestly, I never said it was the best game of this generation, just the best upcoming game that is exclusive to one console that I know of. If I had to pick favorites from this gen, I'd probably have Fallout New Vegas, Divinity II DKS, The Witcher 2, Demon's Souls, etc. higher than Meruru.

The long and short of it is that Halo 4 looks to be nothing interesting. From what I've seen, they're building off the formula established in Reach and trying to fix it. The problem there is that Reach was boring as hell. Even if they polish a turd, it's still a turd. Totori was actually fun, and Meruru looks really fu**ing fun, mainly because of the overhauled battle system and the popularity system.

The way I see it, PS3 fans are the type to actually try Halo 4 out and form a stable opinion on it. I could be wrong but I just feel like there are more natural gamers that are Playstation loyal than there are fanboys.

So much diversity with the Playstation brand that I can't really see Playstation 3 fans being jealous of a top notch 360 shooter.

Is it me or was there an article like this about a month or two ago (subject being a lack of PS3 exclusives, not Halo related)? Maybe on another site, but I know I had read something like that not too long ago and I remember thinking 'isin't it too early into the year to be asking about PS3 exclusive games'. I still feel like that to some extent, but I'm more than sure there are some surprises that Sony still has under wraps for E3. Not all games can be exclusive,I'd like to leave the other guys something to play. Perhaps the real question we should be asking is what games are using the PS3 as the leading console? I have played my share of third party games and I always wonder what could have been if certain games were PS3 exclusives or atleast had used it as the leading console. I would actually love if more game companies did what Bethesda did with Oblivion. It was on PC/Xbox first for 6 months or so then it was optimized for the PS3- key word here being optimized. It was looking and running better than on the 360 from my understanding, even several biased gaming sites admitted it.

As for Halo, I've played either one or two of them for a combined time of 1 hour at most, I think it was Halo 3. All because I didn't want to be rude to my cousin and on a separate occasion a friend. I am sure thats all I really need to say about that. Games I think would be cool if they hit the PS3, 1) Splinter Cell Conviction (2) Left 4 Dead -End of List.

This is why I have an Xbox. I've never really been into the competitive aspect of Halo multiplayer, but the split screen co op and offline modes keep me and my buddies coming back for more.

In any case, Halo has always been an elite franchise in my eyes, a defining FPS for consoles. PS-centric gamers may not get the hype but they should at least remember the impact it had on the industry.

And why limit yourself? Good games are everywhere :)

I've got both consoles, so no reason to be jealous. I play my PS3 at least 95% of the time, but if a good game comes out on 360, I'll get it.

I really liked Halo 1 and 2, and while 3 was not as good I still enjoyed it. OTSD was absolute crap, but I still want to pick up Reach and give Halo 4 a try.

I love Playstation and all their systems, but see no reason to be jealous of the 360. It's hard to believe that the inferior 360 is selling better than the amazing PS3, but it doesnt hurt my feelings.

I want several platforms! We don't want one manufacturer get too much power. No no, I want plenty, I even welcome the new Valve console if that becomes reality. Competition is good.

But I don't want to have to BUY several platforms. I want to stick to my chosen platform and enjoy all awesome games no matter what platform I choose. And I want others to enjoy the awesome games I enjoy too:

When I meet a gamer I want to head into a discussion about the latest AAA without having to ask him what platform he play on first. And we are soooo close to that point now.

This is the direction I think we are heading. I like it very much. Yup indeed.

But is it that strange? I don't have a x360 so I don't generally have any interest in x360 news or reviews, nor do I browse x360 sites.
Before I got a PS3 myself I didn't know anything about any console-exclusive games either. They simply were of no interest!

It's a little bizarre, yes. Even if I didn't have a 360, I'm sure I would've run across Halo somewhere, at a friend's house or a demo in a game store or something.

I remember playing the first Halo when it came out. Buddy brought over an XBOX he had rented and we co-oped the main story.

I remember being struck by how long the missions were... it felt like one giant mission how it just led from one thing to the next.

Now it's commonplace for FPS' to do that (although CoD doesn't really do that... it jumps around). But back then, it felt like a very new experience.

I might have seen Halo on display in a store, what do I know, but I never took notice if so. If there was a white box underneath I'd just walk on.

It's like the iOs games! I don't have the faintest idea what games are the top sellers on the iPhone right now. No idea what games, if any, that are iPhone exclusives either. I got an Android so I don't really care...! Same thing, really. Well, to me it is, at least.

The only thing I am jealous about is the huge repose this series gets from gamers and the gaming press in general. I was at at Gamestop during the night of the midnight launch for Halo Reach. Hundreds of gamers showed up. Tremendous amount of excitment in that crowd for that game. I have seen no game that has even come close to that level of ethusiasm on the PS3 side. I think the highsest I saw was for GT5 but that was well below 30 people. 25 for Uncharted 3. I guess what Sony needs is an epic exclusive FPS that can actually compete with Halo in terms of sales. Oh, I also think a lot of Halo sales can be traced back to the social aspect of the machine and Live, Many gamers will get Halo 4 simply because their friends got it as well.

Seeing the results of those midnight launch titles in person really shows how much things have changed. Those 360 fans are there early camping out in large numbers. Makes the NA gaming crowd feel very 360 centic. It's so large you almost feel a little left out if you aren't involved.

Rogue is absolutely correct.

I have no interest in modern FPS games, or DUST. But it has to be one of the most innovative titles this generation. A complete future-thinking, future-proof game.

Halo 4, is hyped as a famous, familiar series returning. DUST is hyped as the next great innovation and furthermore, it is showcasing what the PS3 has over every othe console, not just in terms of graphics.

I recommend the videos Rogue suggested, they are unlike anything else, like it or not and thus renders this write up (albeit an odd one) invalid.

It's simple, you can only be jealous of Halo if you actually like and want that game, but have a PS3. Even then jealousy shouldn't be the word, we aren't 10 anymore.

Not odd, at all. In fact, it's not even a stretch.

Plenty of people either can't afford or can't justify owning more than one console. So, if you picked PS3 or Wii, it makes perfect sense to be jealous of Halo 4 if you really want to play it.

I, for example, can afford a 360, but it's not an expense I'm willing to pay for. I still have games on my shelf I want to play for PS3 still. Why buy another console? Especially since the only thing I would want to play on it right now is the new Halo 4 coming out.

Sure, I could go spend $300+ just to play it, but that's just silly. At the end of the day, I make a logical choice to stick to one console, what with not running out of stuff to play on PS3, but I have to deal with the consequences of missing out on some other great titles the other consoles have that are great.

Halo 4 is one of them (and at this point, the only one for 360), and on Wii, Xenoblade Chronicles is a -MAJOR- jealousy spot for me right now as well.

So no... not odd at all. It's merely a consequence of the choice I needed to make.

Yeah, it's natural that both sides will feel some console envy at times even though most would probably never admit it. It's also true not everybody can afford both consoles.

I was very lucky and received a 360(ironic it was Halo Reach bundle) as gift last Christmas from my super nice sister. I own just 3 games for it. The Lost Odyssey(this gen's best JRPG by far). The Witcher 2(great rpg) and Halo Reah(solid fps and a lot of fun).

Most of my gaming dollars are spent towards PS3 games. I am a Sony guy deep down and I have always preferred their systems. I might get Dragon's Dogma for the 360 if it gets decent scores so I can play the RE6 demo two months early.

Nope, not at all.

With your article Ben, I think PS3 owners are jealous that 360 has 1 major exclusive coming out this year, not that its Halo 4.

Quite honestly, I enjoyed Halo on the original Xbox, and hated the sequels until Reach came out with updated graphics and gameplay mechanics.

If Halo 4 doesn't step up as high as Reach did from previous entries, I doubt I'll get it.

Only thing that will make me get Halo 4 is if ALL of my friends who own 360's get Halo 4, which I doubt since we all work fulltime, have budgets and have just as much fun with Halo Reach online. No point wasting money on a new game if it plays almost exactly like Reach.

Question probably doesn't apply to me because I own both consoles, but no I'm not jealous but that's because I will be getting it anyway.

There are plenty of PS3 exclusives that could occupy the PS3-only gamer, though. Killzone 2 and 3, and Resistance 3 all provided me with hours and hours of multiplayer gaming.

However, Halo still is King, IMO. I haven't been able to find a multiplayer game with the amount of options and modes since it came out. It was the pinnancle of the series for me (and alot of others). I'm really interested in how Halo4 will turn out now that 343 studios is at the helm. I'm sure they'll want to tweak more than a couple of things to leave their finger print on the series.

How could ps3 owners be jealous? Yes halo is an amazing game, but when ps3 owners have a free to play mmofps coming relatively soon how could the even care about anything else? If you guy don't know what I'm speaking of, its Dust 514 which is basically halo on steroids. So no I don't believe that ps3 owners will be jealous of the release line up for video games in this year to come.

I'll get it but only as I have both consoles. If I didn't have an Xbox I wouldn't be jealous I wasn't jealous when my cousins had Halo on the Xbox when I had my PS2.

I only wanted to play the Halo's and Gears games once I seen them properly.

On the whole I don't think most PS3 fans would be jealous anyway.

How could ps3 owners be jealous of halo4 when we have Dust 514 coming to our consoles quite soon. A free to play mmofps that looks like halo on steroids. I think id prefer to pay nothing for online and get an awesome game for free as well thank you.

Not so sure Sony doesn't have an ace up their sleeve in the "exclusive" department. I just can't believe they wouldn't bring ANY competion to square off against Microsoft and their biggest, signature franchise.

My bet is that's what the God of War announcement will be tomorrow -- Kratos is back November 2012. At least that's what I'm hoping for :)

I'm as jealous of Halo 4 as I was with 1, 2, & 3...not at all. With so many FPSs out there that handle the genre well, I can't say I feel left out in the slightest.

Genres that the PS3 may be lacking in, possibly. Such as turn-based RPGs like Lost Odyssey would be nice on PS3.

Really enjoyed Halo 1-2 but after that I didn't play them. I have both systems so there really are no games that I miss if I want them. I got my PS3 to start with so I could play the Show :)

lol in my jamaican dialect, what type of ras question is this smh. dont get me wrong HALO koo & i enjoy it for what it is as i do with all games but none had me anticipate a release. played 1 2 & 3. played some of 1 campaign & 2 but didnt get to spend time with 3. the campaigns didnt capture me but i admit online is where things get live in terms of action.

is Halo ground breaking for me where i wish it was on ps3?...... naw. only games that almost made me buy xbox or want on Ps3 is Fable & Gears of War.

What has already been released this year and Dust I really fail to see the logic of even seeing a lull in the Playstation timetable of the context of Halo. Go further most Playstation broad thinkers like me won't skip a beat in caring.

As a huge Halo fan I'm definitely looking forward to 4, but I don't think there's anything that PS only gamers need to be jealous of. The PSVita just had a fantastic launch that included a new Uncharted game and Resistance, Little Big Planet and Gravity Rush look to be excellent games as well. PS3 got Twisted Metal and while I'm not sold on Starhawk, I have pre-ordered Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, I've been hoping for a new Sly game and this one seems like it will be a nice addition to the series. I'm also going to throw MLB 12 The Show for PS3 and Vita out there as another great exclusive, that series has been the top sports sim on the market this gen and nothing has changed this year.

So, Halo 4 while a great game to look forward to, not just for Xbox gamers but all gamers, it's hardly anything to be jealous over. Even Nintendo gamers have a decent year this year with some great 3DS stuff, Xenoblade and The Last Story for Wii and the Wii U set to launch.

Well Halo 4 isn't being made by bungie, so theirs a chance it won't be as good. Plus its been milked way to much: Halo, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo Wars and recently, Halo Reach... I DON'T THINK PEOPLE HAVE PLAYED ENOUGH HALO GAMES!

I will freely admit that I'm a little jealous. Can't really say anything about the ones on 360, but I did enjoy the first 2 very much.

Not even close to jealous because I'll be too busy playing the hell out of The R&C Trilogy and LBP Karting. Not too mention all the multiplats, so even if I had a 360 it wouldn't get much screen time.

Never did like Halo in the least bit. But, I bet it'll hit big with the 360 fans... or some of them anyways. I could never get over all the bright colors of the characters and the PC style cameras. Probably because I played Hexen Arena too much when I was younger, ha. But the outfits (suits?) were kinda feminine in my eyes. And the color pink doesn't go with killing, that only works with a bunny suit. *thinking* "I really loved that Manhunt game for PS2."

Got FPS problems, I feel bad for you, son. I got 99 problems and Halo ain't one.

Halo is worthless.

I only partially disagree with Jawknee's opinion on Halo, but the parts that I do, I couldn't disagree more. Halo 1 was pretty cool, 2 I didn't really play, and 3 was incredible. I was absolutely addicted to Halo 3.

I can barely play Black Ops 2 for long without becoming too frustrated to continue, so I want to switch to Halo 4(AMAZING GAME), but I'd have to switch to my Xbox, which I don't really want to, cause I enjoy using my PS3 more. So yeah, I'm really jealous of the Xbox 360 for having the Halo series, exclusively. Particularly Halo 4.
