    I certainly wouldn't be surprised if it were XBox 360 exclusive. That's the passage of time for you - the old gives way to the new. Think about it. When the SNES came out, the NES faded away. Super Mario World wasn't a SNES or NES title. Same with the PS to PS2 - Gran Turismo 3? PS2 exclusive.

    The XBox probably doesn't have the processing power that they want for Halo 3, so they need to make it for the 360. Plus, from a business standpoint, it makes sense to help sell their new system with their premier franchise.

    thats how everything is
    its usually the new systems that can support the game
    Do you want a really good full game on the 360 and a cut up choppy graphics xbox version?

    Didnt think so
    It doesnt do the game justice to demean the quality and gameplay just to release it on an old console.

    A 360 with the hard drive and a few other things run at about 400$; EbGames will give you about 60$ for your Xbox console alone, and the games and controllers fetch a decent price as well.

    Is Halo 3 out yet? I assume not, so you might be able to get some kind of package deal from EB or a department store when it's released, too.

    It'd be a pretty smart move to match up with the PS3, that's for sure.


    And there you go. Not a bad price at all. I'm assuming by now they've started working out the technical problems. ;)

    Halo 3 wont be out till mid 07 but if ms wants to release it too soon like they did with the 360
    then they better hire a bunch of people to do customer service for them cuz people were ticked with the 360 having all those bugs
    Only thing worse than the console with bugs would be a crappy Halo 3 released way too soon

    Nothing like paying for Beta testing! Gotta love the junk that gets released these days (not JUST MS related slam FYI)
