    Re: News - Microsoft announces Halo 5: Guardians

    I'm quite surprised by the lack of PC support, I assume it would take little work for the potential benefit of many more sales - especially if more people continue to choose the PS4 over the XBO.

    Well, seeing as Halo has always been just for Xbox, aside from combat evolved, I see no reason for them to change up now. Besides, combat evolved on PC sucked, and they don't need to screw it up with their latest master piece.

    "we are promised that the game will run "at 60 frames per second, on dedicated servers"
    What does that mean? More cloud computing talk?
    And also, is it still gonna be 792p?

    Not exactly sure on that, but I also heard it will run at 60 FPS, but I don't think that means more cloud computing talk. Shouldn't it be greater than 792p?

    Re: News - Microsoft announces Halo 5: Guardians

    I'm pretty certain MS are working like crazy behind the scenes to make DX12 give the XBox One a pretty significant, maybe a "Mantle-like" performance gain and this could be time in for Halo 5. I wonder if they will give an indication of this at E3 too?

    Re: News - Microsoft announces Halo 5: Guardians

    I wonder why MS are announcing all these games so early, I wonder if that means they have a huge line up, because if they're announcing all these stuff just to show us trailers of the game at E3, it will be disappointing and it will feel like they're repeating news. I'm more interested in the fact that Sony have stayed pretty quite so far, this will be a fantastic E3!

    Expectation-building?

    To sell consoles, and to build XBO demand?

    And yes, I'm cynical too.
