Halo was the only reason I got an Xbox back in 2001, and I've played every installment since, including that fancy expansion, ODST .
And now that the Reclaimer Trilogy has been outed by 343 Industries, I'm just wondering what the PlayStation 3 fans think…jealous much? Or do they have enough exclusives on their plate already? Personally, I'm only jealous of Gears and Alan Wake ; I can live without Halo , as I think it has long since been eclipsed by other shooters.
But not everyone feels that way, and Halo remains a massive franchise for Microsoft. You can bet they'll promote it like mad; when we get within 6 months of the first entry's launch, it'll be like CoD-type hype. At that point, all the 360 followers will be crowing about the return of their beloved franchise, while I assume PS3 fans will just rip off a list of awesome exclusives 360 owners can never play.
But come on, level with us. Don't you feel even a sliver of envy? Just a drop? I mean, even if you really don't like Halo , you have to admit that this Reclaimer Trilogy is a serious boon for Microsoft. We're all assuming the titles in question will be stellar, of course (we don't want to consider what might happen if they're not), and that's enough to be just a teensy bit jealous, right? …right?
