Halo 4 leads to Xbox 720 insight
News regarding Halo 4 has been coming thick and fast because November is just 6 months away, which means that if rumors are correct gives the game a good year or so before some 360 fans abandon ship and pledge their allegiance to the Xbox 720. Everything we know about Microsoft’s next-gen console is based merely on rumor but looking at what Halo 4 brings to the current console could lead to insight regarding the next Xbox.
Halo 4 is part of the Reclaimer trilogy and the future of these games is said to show the future of Xbox because we will get to see the console evolve along with the franchise, but what does the future hold because the other two titles from the trilogy will be next-gen releases?
Microsoft needs to rely heavily on exclusives with their next Xbox because we can see that their press conference during E3 will not feature many games for the current 360. They need to get back to what made them so great a few years ago and future Halo titles will do that, but they need to make certain that the 720 (if that’s its name) has the performance to handle the power needed because the other Halo’s from the trilogy needs to be special, and when Halo 4 is finally released in November it will show us this new direction – well partly.
According to an interesting article 343 has said that they are now at the limits of the Xbox 360 with Halo 4, which is both a good and bad sign. The good is that this should be the best version of the franchise yet, the bad is we shouldn’t expect anything better from the current-gen console.
Both Microsoft and 343 hope that Halo 4 will be able to take the fight to rival games, such as Black Ops; Bioshock: Infinite was supposed to be another but has since been delayed until February 2013. It’s been suggested that this has freed GTA V up for a release in October, but another rumor was because the publisher did not want a smaller title like Infinite to compete with Halo 4 because it could be an unfair battle.
Speaking of battles just recently some of the guns to feature in Halo 4 were shared with us, and what an arsenal it is. Some of the weapons are as follows: The MA5D assault rifle, BR85 battle rifle, M395 DMR, SRS99-S5 AM sniper rifle and also the ARC-920 Railgun. More details of these guns can be found here.
