New Halo 3 Alpha screenshots reveal several new game features

High resolution (3840x2160) screenshots of Halo 3 reveal some very nice new game features that the Halo 3 developer team is very excited about. Everything has gotten major graphical redesigns, to ensure extreme realism. There are new weapons, such as spartan beams (the second screenshot shows it quite well), new vehicles like the mongoose (again, in the second screenshot), and new ways of storing weapons. In previous versions of Halo, weapons simply disappeared when not in use. Now, weapons are stored on the players back, side, and belt. There are also new ways of keeping players from going out of bounds. Ideas such as land mines, auto-turrets, and killzones are all being explored by the Halo 3 development team. In the meantime, have a look at the pretty screenshots

F.E.A.R. and Oblivion have same level graphics....

I don't really see anything new yet. But I'm so excited about this game. A killer game like this plus the price drop alluded to by MS will really give them an advatange in the market.

Microsoft's Bach Ready for Price War
>> From next-gen.biz:
Quote:
Robbie Bach, president of Entertainment and Devices at Microsoft, believes a future hardware price battle will decide the outcome of Xbox 360's struggle with PlayStation 3.

In an interview with San Joe Mercury News, he said that the company is seeking to bring down Xbox 360's costs in preparation for a price initiative that he believes Sony will be unable to follow.

Responding to a question on the hardware wars, he said, "You have look at the economics. You have to ask the question, over the life cycle, who has the cost advantage? Who can price most effectively? Who can reach the price points quicker? That has a huge impact on what gets driven."

He added, "Because we were out there first, we have a bigger installed base of consoles. We can drive down the manufacturing curve sooner and faster. And because we designed a box that was fundamentally easier to manage on costs, we're going to have that advantage."
