I say fake... doesn't look like a Halo and I would hope the graphics would be better than that for a next gen halo... :\.

I've said it before, and I will say it again. Do not expect Next Gen Console Titles to look much better than that. It's not happening. Put this quote in your sig if you have to, you will see.

I can already name 10 titles for the 360 alone that look lightyears better then that.

Maybe cutscenes and pre-rendered images/videos, sure. But I agree with jAk...that screenshot is likely the best it's going to be for some time. But as usual, as the consoles mature and programmers get used to them, games will look better.

It happens with every console release.

That "Halo 3" shot looks like concept art with the Halo 2 SMG PS'ed in.

Yeah, CoD2, one of the worst looking (graphically at least) games coming to the 360.

Go look at shots for Gears of War, Perfect Dark Zero, Project Gotham Racing 3, Kameo, Oblivion, Dead or Alive 4, Need For Speed: Most Wanted, The Outfit, Condemned, Prey, 99 Nights, Huxley, Chrome Hounds, World AirForce, NBA 2k6, Armored Core 4. All of those games on their newest builds running REAL-TIME look miles ahead of that screenshot. Yes, these consoles kickass, and yes, they are better then PC's (for the time being). Just because a few games look graphically bad, that does not mean that all of them do.

And I can almost guarantee that Halo 3 will be gorgeous.

Thank you... saved me the trouble ;).

If the gameplay was generic, then it wouldn't have offered anything new. As it stands, it's gameplay influenced many other games, which is an indication that it certainly did something right. And when's the last time an FPS story HASN'T been half assed? At this point that pretty much goes without saying...

Only thing I can think of that some games have "copied" from HALO was the vehicles... and that isn't really original... hell, the FPS came out years before it and had vehicles (and was freaking fun too). But I am getting sick and tired of every game ever now HAVING to have vehicles... when I get a FPS... I WANT TO PLAY A FIRST PERSON SHOOTER... not a race around **** game.

The angle of the weapon in that screen shot looks way off/suspect.

A sony rep already said its not as powerful as a 7800GTX. And until I see it running in realtime, I still will not believe that it will look better than PC's. Actually, it won't look better than PC's :D Mark my words.
