    I wish I held up on selling my 360 until after Halo 4 and Gears of War came out… ah well…

      No, you made a good decision.

        C’mon King, cut 343 some slack. Halo and Gears are the only reason for me to ever buy a 360. I hope MS use the same chip providers for Xbox 3 (BC) so I could also enjoy the continuation of one of the better SciFi FPS on the market without having to buy a 360. Hope MS learn from 360 early failures though, and design a more reliable console.

          I can’t respond to you from that account. For some reason Sal won’t let me comment but luckily I’m immortal.

      If you din’t wanted more than those games then it was not worth having. In my case there’s only 4 games I want on 360 and I won’t buy it for just a few games no mater how good they are. Isold my N64 for the same reason. It was collecting dust. I liked Starfox and Mario 64 and Zelda but I beat them 100%

        Same, I didn’t touch my 360 for a long time. Will only be turning on my console for 2 upcoming games, Halo 4 and Gears of War: Exile. After these 2 games I will probably just keep it in a corner to wait for the new Xbox.

    I guess I need to start playing catch up with the Halo series. I haven’t played the last few Bungie titles quite yet. I know Halo 4 takes place after 3, but I’d like to play the prequel titles before I jump into Halo 4.

    I’m happy for 343, reading some of the reviews shows they have made a great game. I’m very excited about the campaign mode, that’s typically what I play my shooters for anyways. (One of the things that kept me coming back to Halo.)

      Hey, Zero. Any chance you’d like to play through the campaign with me? Or do you usually play it alone or with a friend of yours?

      • http://gematsu.com/ Zero

        I typically play my shooting games with a friend of mine. We like to play in the same room via split screen.

        In regards to Halo 4, I’m not really sure when I’m going to end up playing/buying the game. I’m already sorta broke, and I have to save my upcoming pay for christmas presents.

        I’m not sure when I will get the chance to play it, Locksus. Sorry about that. =(

        • Locksus

          Nah, it’s completely fine :) I’ll play it with my step brother as I have always played every Halo campaign with him.
