A 360, Halo 3, and PS3 Conversation

September 28, 2007 | | 27 Comments

Here’s a conversation Gary and I had this morning via chat. I thought it might be a good starting place for a discussion. We started by talking about Halo 3 at 640p. The conversation below starts where I defend Bungie, noting that this is their first 360 title (I think). I’ve edited it for clarity…


Henning said:

I assume this is [Bungie’s] first 360 title.

Shime Waza said:

Heavenly Sword isn’t a great game, it’s good but it’s graphics are astounding for a game released during it’s (the PS3) first year. You’d think Bungie would be given preferential treatment by MS though. Seeing as Halo 3 is their only big franchise. They would do everything in their power to give them as much help as possible in getting the 360’s power into Halo 3

Henning said:

Okay, I’ve found some other sources for the news…

Shime Waza says:

Back to my view that 360 is hitting it’s peak. Halo 3 is their single biggest first party franchise and the game they have touted to kill the PS3 (well so say the xbots). Apart from Mass Effect and PGR4 (which won’t sell a load of 360s), they have no exclusive games to blow people away with. They only have that marketing BS with the GTA IV downloadable content. So what can the 360 offer to would be buyers in the form of exclusive games and content? Not a lot compared to the PS3. They have had an easy year and a half to build a lead, sales wise, but the PS3 IS ALREADY CATCHING UP WITH QUALITY CONTENT, then next year THE big EXCLUSIVE games arrive on PS3 and that is when sales (along with a proper price drop) will take off. Here’s a good read related to the Halo 3 phenomenon.

Henning says:

Bioshock is big. Is Halo 3 at 60FPS ?

Shime Waza says:

It hasn’t sold 360s though.

Henning says:

Killzone 2 will only be 30FPS.

Shime Waza says:

I dunno what fps Halo 3 is.

Henning says:

Hmm. [After a web search on “Halo 3” and “30fps”.] Looks like it’s 30FPS. That makes the 640p all the worse….

Shime Waza says:

My point is that MS and Xbots believed Halo3 would boost 360 sales and kill off the PS3 (by that I mean give the 360 an unassailable sales lead), but they haven’t got the range of games that the PS3 has. Bioshock is great but it’s on PC as well.

Henning says:

True enuf.
