Hopefully Halo Infinite will be supporting Dolby Vision and Audio. I actually liked how the colours seemed to pop on the gameplay demo and can’t wait to see what it looks like come launch. If they can make it look like some of the screenshots I’ve seen I’d go as far as saying it will look amazing. I’m gutted it’s not going to launch with next gen but I can wait and it will only look the better for it.

I've been doing my Halo Legendary playthrough. So far have 5 games down. Just finished Halo 3. Even in 4K I don't think those graphics were great. Good art...but textures and animations in the cutscenes were pretty poor. I don't think they would've been great even for that time. What came back to me was the epic feeling of the world, story and some of the sandbox areas. Also had great multiplayer.

After playing this game, I still contend what will make Halo Infinite great (or not) has little to do with the technical quality. The jump from Bungie's Halo 3 to 343's Halo 4 was massive visually. What's most important is the gameplay and story. Having the ebb and flow, change of tone, jarring changes in scale that keep the gameplay from becoming monotone, etc. Obviously multiplayer will be key.

Agree. The pop in the color scheme was one of the positives about the visual style. I think it'll allow some of the environments to really shine.

I wonder if we’ll get a look at the MP before the launch of the new consoles. Maybe the lighting issues present in the open world demo would be mitigated if they showed off an arena style map of mp?
My hype is building up again now that I know it will look similar to other Halos as opposed to what I was imagining it could look like from the old teaser trailer from E3 2018.
How far out do you think this is now considering the game is most likely built and they’re just really focusing on getting the lighting right?

Considering they are talking 120fps for MP, I wouldn't hold my breath for advanced lighting.

That is 8.3ms per frame. Faster than the latency on my TV by 10ms, let alone with controller and my brain latency, lol.

My tv doesn’t support 2.1 either. LG B8, on the lower end of LG OLED but I love it and I’m not upgrading any time soon. Hopefully 343 go for higher settings on 60fps mode.

Are we really comparing Halo single player vs those other games?

I'm not overpaying $60.
When it's a more fair price I'll buy if it's better than what was shown of course.
I'll play the campaign when it drops whether it's 59.99 or 799.99 since it'll be in gamepass. Maybe MS can rebrand it as EA Access plus so you would be able to enjoy it. 🤡

Lol, whatever. That's cool if you don't care about Halo Campaigns. I for one play through them multiple times, which is more than I can say for nearly all my PS4 exclusive campaigns.

Fighting enemies in Halo is fun, and the game isnt bogged down by super long cutscenes. MP has always been supplementary to me.

Halo campaigns cannot be compared to the Witcher 3 like he did.

To the rest of what you said....lolz
