Commercial licensing is their bread and butter, by a large margin.

I'm excited for this game.

In the same way I'm excited for any new game that comes out.

I don't have faith in another GREAT Halo game being made. But as a standard game I'm still looking forward to it. Like I was for South Park and a few other games that came out recently.

I still have this lingering feeling in my gut that hopefully this game brings back everything good in the Halo multiplayer world. But that feeling is so small, and it honestly makes me sad to know I feel this sad about such a big piece of my growing up.



Hopefully the game is good. Not holding my hopes up too high though. It's probably gonna be okay at best. Not the pinnacle of multiplayer it once was.

343 hired a bunch of former mlg employees and former pros to work on the game. including the guy who made the starcraft ranking system (all he does is ranks, so i dont imagine hed be doing anything else.) i think halo 5 will probably be a very competitive game, but i dont want to wait until 2015 to play a decent halo game, i really hope h2a is a thing.

That explains it. All I ever see on the financial section of Yahoo is Microsoft getting "destroyed" by Sony, but when I compare stock prices MSFT is still somehow increased after bad news for some of their larger individual consumer products (Xbox, Game Studio Software, Phones, etc) and SNE seems way down. Consumer products only generate about 50% of the revenue that the commercial licensing does. Honestly I expect these first months after console release to be a period of expense for both major platforms due to the amount of investment and costs to manufacture units without demand, but it'll dissolve in the next year or so. Just look at how well both PS3 and 360 units sold:



Xbox One: still sold more units than Atari 7800. It's catching up to the Wii U!

Also, sidebar: holy shit they made $8 Billion in Q1 2014 for commercial licensing alone...they better never complain that they don't have enough money for things. That amount of money...puts my bank account to shame.

OT, I think that concept art is crazy bizarre. All jokes about flying sperm aside, 343 better not dabble in Sci-Fi too much and create something that looks like Dune. Part of the reasons that I enjoyed the Halo series campaign stories was the humanoid aspect to all of the Alien enemies you would play. Elites obviously looks pretty similar to humans, granted a bit of a size difference, and these Guardians are just starting to look like gigantic floating robots.

As far as location goes, I wonder if it will extend to the lore of the Halo books and occur on planets that haven't yet been featured in the game.

Gamecube is by far the best console (because of the games). Consoles will be the death of gaming companies btw. Best to invest in PC shit
