I will never get used to people complaining about the source engine.

Seriously pumped for the next installment of Half-life, if that's what this ends up being.

...And yet those games still look like garage. Sure, you are right in the sense the engines are upgradable, and it's obvious in these pictures. Although, try comparing these to Battlefield, Crysis, Metro 2033, basically any game on a "modern" engine, hell even look at the free Tribes game.

This is my theory on the 3s, I came up with it myself, I may not be the first. Its mostly conjecture based on my 20+ years of gaming experience.


I think that HL3 will be released after the next console generation. I base this on several things, but I'll stick to the main points:


Both Sony and Xbox want a more proprietary system than discs. They've said as much. Digital distribution is the future of everything.

They could try to create their own market, but what would be even better for their sales would be Steam on consoles. This would also create accounts of games that couldn't be sold, and resold used, or lent out.

Valves last few releases on Consoles worked out really well for most involved. The orange box, and Portal2 are both near perfection.

Current gen. consoles have had it, they are old. They don't have the horsepower for what HL3 should be.

Therefore;



My prediction is. That HL3, Portal3, and L43 will all be released as "The Orange box^3". When the next gen consoles release, they will come with Steam, and Orange box 3 will be the biggest game release of all time, breaking all sales records across PC, MS, and SONY. and it will be awesome.



Orange box or not, I think the timing on HL3 will still work out this way, and that steam will end up on the next gen consoles.

20 years gaming experience, 0 years industry experience, I presume.


It's not going to happen for the simple reason that the only company that would benefit from that is Valve. Valve would not share Steam profits with M$ and Sony, and even if they did M$ and Sony would rather have their own distribution system and take ALL the profit instead of just some of it. Also the timing is off; the consoles aren't coming out for at least a couple years and I doubt Valve will take that long considering all the teasing that's been done lately from them.

It's silly to think the xbox and playstation market love half-life enough for it to break sales records. Half-Life will never be as big as CoD or Halo or even assasins creed. Not to say that it shouldn't be but it isn't.
