Bungie's Halo 3 ODST also had images in the press kit, 22 to be exact. Many of them are from E3 so just take these images as a summary of previous galleries.

Nothing that we already haven't seen in videos. Just a little over a month more.

The cutscenes look awesome, i'll give it that, even the H3 ones were amazing. Everything else...meh.

I don't see how its overpriced. 6-7 hour gameplay(plus hidden extras), standalone multiplayer if I remember correctly and all of Halo 3's 24 maps.

The game only comes with 3 three new MP maps and it does have a pretty short campaign, so that's not cool.

However, I'm probably going to break down and buy this anyhow simply b/c of the Reach beta (damn you Microsoft) and the firefight mode looks like a little slice of FPS heaven. I loved horde mode in Gears soooo much and this looks like it will offer the same great experience for those of us who simply love co-op stuff for shooters.

Sigh, Fatso- you should really take a look at what original Xbox games look like. As I've said before, the H3 engine still does some very nice things that other engines don't( color depth is only rivaled by Uncharted 2, IMO) and it's the Art style that hampers it for the most part( doesn't bother me Per se- I think they have cool designs, they just need a more realistic look). Funny how people bitch about the "greys and browns", and when a colorful game comes out they complain that it looks too cartoony. The Lighting in this engine is great( especially the glows and HDR). But whatever, bottom line is bungie makes great games and Firefight with Halo gameplay will be incredible...

yeah if you want the luxery of excusing the visuals, and amount of new content, on the fact that its an expansion then you dont charge it the price of a full retail release.

Charge the price of a full retail release then it should rightly be looked upon, and judge, as such.

TBH. Because its Halo, and because its undoubtedly a good game anyway, it will still sell. and sell well. Even if it is overpriced.

Just FYI, with the amount of time i've ended up playing Halo, its easily worth double or triple compared to my other games. Just saying. I'm sure we all have games where the entry price is really cheap compared to the amount we've played it.

So it's not overpriced because it comes with a ton of content that we all already own... awesome.
