"Note to the hard-core faithful: the next version of Halo will not, repeat not, be ready in time for the launch of Xbox 360. It will be part of the all-important second wave next spring. 'It's perfect,' Gates says, radiant with bloodlust. 'The day Sony launches [the new PlayStation], and they walk right into Halo 3."

this is the most ingenious plan- EVER!

relase your newest and best selling game right when your competitor comes out with thier new system! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I just hope this one has an ending and all the multiplayer levels from Halo 1 +2 (the popular ones at least.)

oh and i heard that next-gen games will be mega expensive- around 70 bucks... has anyone else heard about this?

actually, i've thought about this a bit more.

releasing it on the same day could be a double edged sword.

on one hand you'll be screwing Sony over by taking some of their customers away. on the other hand, people might be more excited to get the PS3 and wait to purchase Halo 3.

i mean, if you were going out to purchase a PS3, would you spend another $50/$70 to get Halo 3 after spending at least $300 for the console?

Possibly, but I don't think it will hurt MS in the long run. I cannot imagine any Halo fan who owns the new Xbox NOT getting Halo 3. They might put it off in order to afford the PS3, but they're going to get it. All they'll do is delay the payment to MS a bit.

thats true, any xbox owner has at least one halo, or multiple copies....

I have an Xbox and no Halo, SCCT keeps it alive. It is a good idea to release Halo 3 on the day PS3 is released but then again it might not be seeing as how all the attention will be on the PS3 Console release. Im sure a new console is more interesting than a game.

I'm not talking about people who own an Xbox but not Halo. Ok, raise your hands here. Is there anyone who owns an Xbox and Halo, but does not own Halo 2? I bet you'll be hard pressed to find anyone on these forums that fits. There will be those who don't get the new Xbox (money reasons, probably) and won't get Halo 3 as a result, but I just don't believe anyone who owns Halo 1 and 2, and buys the new Xbox, will fail to get Halo 3 at some point.

I can't wait to see the articles in the paper about fanboy riots in front of the gamestores. More bad publicity for games. Oh well.

If I had $1000 to go into a store that day, I'd buy Halo 3 first, then maybe pick up a few other games and a PS3 on the way out. Microsoft will already have a good number of games coming out for the 360 while Sony will only have a launch set. I can even picture some people entering the store that day and buying an Xbox 360 and a PS3. And Halo 3.

Everyone and their mom bought a Dreamcast, as they should have - DC is the greatest system in year - the only problem was they were selling them at ice cream shoppes for $2.
