lol, stupid Halo noobs. Lower resolution isn't necessary for proper HDR unless your graphics engine sucks monkey cock. And people are favouring silly lighting effects over poly count these days, mister Fred!

Honestly, it's weak that Halo 3 isn't the full 720p resolution. Microsoft did say that all 360 games were to be rendered in at least 720p. So far four games are rendering below that. Two, Call of Duty 3 and Tony Hawk Project 8, are Activision titles. However, the most notable are Project Gotham Racing 3 and Halo 3, both published by MS... Some say Tomb Raider Legends and Perfect Dark Zero renders at lower resolutions as well, but all seem to refer to the same source on that (a guy counting pixels on his tv...)

Probably because lighting effects are more noticable than extra polygons. Actually more polygons don't always make a game look better, which is the main thing this generation. Games wont have been technically impossible on older consoles. Just the silly graphics effects and higher resolutions. Real time shadows and HDR etc.

I didn't say things like that.

I meant the games have to look good by using lighting effects and such, thats the main aim this generation.

Firstly. HDR is the dogs bollocks IMO. I'll take a lower resolution for HDR any day, so long as theres FSAA going on too. It is weak that Halo is a low resolution yet still has slow downs in areas. For a flagship game it is a little bit poor.

That said the 360 scaler makes up for that... almost.

And yes it is all about the gameplay. Shame that Halo 3's gameplay is so tired :|

I personally see absolutely nothing wrong with Halo 3 except for that it feels to short. Aside from that, the stunningly beautiful graphics and perfectly smooth gameplay, all work together in an amazing game. I love it, and it's the best console game I've played to date.

Now I'm just waiting for The Orange Box to come in the mail October 11th. Pre-ordered it, Team Fortress 2 and Portal are going to be the highlights of that pack. Not to mention the beta of Team Fortress 2 is sweet as all hell. This is without a doubt, a good year for First Person Shooters! Halo 3 and Team Fortress 2 don't exactly break the mold, but we still have Crysis and Unreal Tournament 3 coming out later. This is a good year indeed.

Here are a few screenshots I took while playing Halo 3 on Legendary Mode.

I've been watching video reviews for Halo 3 now and it does look rather tasty. It had better arrive in the post tomorrow. Whats this "Orange Box" anyway? Something to do with Half Life?

I'm holding out till they give us HL1 Source or whatever that update was called.

By far it's the best deal in gaming. It's like 5 for 4 (going on a predicting limb here) legendary games and 1 average one.

PS. that shot of the brute (is it?) infront of Master Chef looks crap. It's like they took a late 90's computer game and upped the res. The thing they're on looks like it's been through the Plastic Wrap filter. The enemy graphics look like they just googled "Textures" and threw them all on. and on the screenshots as a whole, it's like Bungie decided to only give certain objects shadows. No varying softness in the shadows? Seems a bit static.

I really hope Brandon didn't post them to show off the graphics.

Actually, FSAA isn't there either Microsoft need to find a flagship title that actually holds up to their own set specs (720p and FSAA)

FSAA makes little difference if you have a decent resolution.

Well, since Halo 3 renders in 1152x640, if you play on an SDTV, you practically get AA as it downsamples.

I got the last achievement in Golden Axe today. What does this have to do with the thread? Nothing really, but it's an awesome game, even though it's upscaled from 320x224 resolution.

It finally came today! As I expected its a dodgy copy. The disk says NTSC JAP or something on it and the book is in both Jpanese and then in English text. Oh well. One thing I was supprised at is that I have completed single player?! Already?! I was shocked at how short it was Never actually finished a Halo game before I only really play it for online matches. Which by the way I suck at. I mean I just seem to have incredibly bad luck wehn playing online. Even after all these years. =/

We got our collectors edition today. I can't bring myself to complete the single player still

Is there a way to pick your own map in an open Live match? It says I'm the leader or something but there are no options?
