    yes coool
  • Mortified_Cow - September 21, 2010 5:27 a.m. know if this was on PlayStation first I might have actually watched it there. It would be nice to turn on my PS3 for reasons other than watching a Bluray. Though I would probably give up since I would have to do a system update, install that system update, update the install then download the video, update the video player, then update the video itself. By that time it would have been live everywhere else. So I would still watch it on Xbox or of course GamesRadar.

    i hate it when playstation fanboys hate on microsoft about exclusivities but dont complain when sony does the same thing. but it is stupid how they are doing a 24 hour exclusive cause thats a waste of money. all timed exclusives are dumb as hell and both microsft and sony have done them before.
  • BonafideMyth - September 20, 2010 11:14 p.m.

    Starting tomorrow I won't be able to enjoy any game I play until 2012, thats for the premature announcement guys, way to make me hate time.

    I am so excited about this!!! This game better not disappoint me. It looks so amazing though. So I doubt that I will be disappointed.
  • Redeater - September 20, 2010 10:48 p.m.

    @Lemurian Thanks for the comment! It's not like the original won multiple awards or has one of the highest Metacritic averages ever. Don't worry though Medal of Honour will be out soon enough so you can get back to shooting terrorists.
  • Cyberninja - September 20, 2010 10:12 p.m.

    since xboxrulez isnt here to defend microsoft i will. they are business who after wii took away most game sales had a good reason to increase price so they could still make money with less fanbase because we all know alot of people play halo and are also willing to pay fees they dont have to you could get most basic plan. if alot of people do something like that then most likely some form of change will be made.
  • Lemurian - September 20, 2010 10:06 p.m.

    im not even looking forward to this its just the sky

    Just for the record. You don't have to buy a stupid avatar item. Microsoft doesn't compel you to buy their shit. You make a choice when you pay for that year subscription. Microsoft tells you what to expect from the service and you accept when you pay for it. You're just victimizing yourself, db1331. The best way to say "We're not gonna take it" is to not play Ratt and leave it as a message to MS - Gaming Division HQ but to stop paying for their shoddy service altogether. I agree with McNeely though, the only thing keeping MS alive is the game franchises they wield.
  • ElAmmoBandito - September 20, 2010 8:35 p.m.

    I swear to fucking god if microsoft screws this up for the PS3 players I'm going to slep the shit out of someone.Also sorry for the cursing.
  • db1331 - September 20, 2010 7:19 p.m.

    So true Johnny. The gaming industry would be so much better without MS and Xbox. I don't understand how after so many red-ringed consoles and major releases on unreadable discs, people still act like MS is doing them a favor by taking their money. They are fleecing people for virtual hats for their avatars, and increasing the cost of playing your games over the internet connection you already pay for. How about instead of buying the rights to show a demo video on your website one whole day before anyone else, you spend that money doing some QA testing on your biggest release of the year so you don't end up selling your customers $60 coasters?
  • JohnnyMaverik - September 20, 2010 7:02 p.m.

    Boo at although hopefully they got paid well for that, and I approve of milking m$soft for dumb exclusivity deals shit like this. Can't wait to watch it...
  • Redeater - September 20, 2010 8:36 p.m.

    I will wait until this appears on my beloved GR before I proceed to crap my pants with delight. @CH3BURASHKA Yes that is very creepy. I thought she looked pretty in the trailer but that photo...... Who put Wednesday Addam's head on Christina Hendrick's body???
  • ElAmmoBandito - September 20, 2010 8:35 p.m.

    Ooops I meant slap.
  • yagirlfriendsfavoriterapper - September 20, 2010 8:29 p.m.

    Are there really racist undertones too this series? I never played the first but saw that concept art on Infinite and said WTF...
  • db1331 - September 20, 2010 8:04 p.m.

    That's exactly what I will be doing, Tyler. @McNeelyJ "and to think they are increasing the cost of xbox live" 24 hour exclusives don't pay for themselves, you know.
  • McNeelyJ - September 20, 2010 7:51 p.m.

    Defitely a waste of money, there is little value to having a video up 1 day prior to anywhere else when the game is 2 years away. And to think they are increasing the cost of xbox live. I have had enough with M$. 4 dead consoles is enough, if Reach wasn't on it I would be playing my playstation much more.
  • CH3BURASHKA - September 20, 2010 7:51 p.m.

    Anyone else think Elizabeth looks like a 12 year old girl in that image? It's kind of creeping me out.
  • GamesRadarTylerNagata - September 20, 2010 7:37 p.m.

    Why not boycott them and wait to see it posted on GR? ;)
