Just logged into marketplace and saw this was up... downloading it now. Just thought all you Halo fiends would want to know... then again, maybe its old news?

It's about 100 MB.

Only can hope it is better than Halo 2.

Sorry but Halo 2 to me was a major disappointment and one of the most over-hyped games ever. I loved Halo but the second one seemed like halo 1.1 and for the years between the two in production time I just felt the game was a major disappointment.

I agree with the above post, I too hope it's better than Halo 2. Halo 1 was one of my favorite games ever, Halo 2 I could have done without.

My download is at 70%... it's taking forever. Hopefully they actually show some in game footage.

Perhaps they are limiting it to coincide with the live announcement.

Agreed... they try to put the 360 as a media download device and it's horribly slow.

I'd bet the rushed out this Halo3 vid to stop the bleeding and slow people from returning their 360s and/or not buying one until Halo3 is out.

Y'all must admit that Halo2 was necessary to deliver an exceptional online experience on the original xbox... I love it still to this day.

1080p, where marketing genius and science fiction collide!

The only thing I liked about it was the no lag online.. Wish every Dev adopted it...

Just watched it. It's a pretty rad trailer. Doesn't show any in game footage though. However what is shown looks to be 360 graphics (quality wise) as opposed to some pre rendered crap that other companies like to show.

The date at the end says '2007'.

It's nice to know you feel this way. I still think people who say this haven't actually played the game.

Halo 2 set the benchmark for online gaming. The campaign was fun, not as GREAT as Halo: CE. I can play Halo 2 any night of the week with friends and always have a good time.

One thing I just noticed, Master Chief is holding a "halo 1" assult rifle. I can only hope this is an indication that Halo 3 will feature weapons from Halo 1 such as the AR/Pistol as opposed to all the annoying Halo 2 weapons. But I'm still not getting my hopes up.

really? i could have sworn it was the halo2 rifle. i'll watch again. i have to disagree with most of you. i did prefer halo1's campaign much more than halo2, but i feel that the combat was nicely pepped up for halo2. i much prefer the halo2 BR for instance. the one thing i'd like to see though is bungie doing something about cheating online. it's a bit ridiculous how often i have games with cheaters

I'd still go for the MP once if you can, I just watched both on my TV and the MP has a better picture. It's also twice the file size.

Of course it's HD on MP.. But the speeds on MP are terribly slow...

You can blame Verizon for that, they are providing the bandwidth.

You hit the nail on the head. I have a 360 and quite a few games but I STILL go back to HALO 2 because it is just such a well made game and nothing, I repeat NOTHING, can even match it in terms of quality (minus rampant cheating)

For all the people that hate it you must not have live because I dont think I have even finished the campaign because I dont care about that LIVE is the only aspect that matters.

They played it on G4 (which by the way is a crappy presentation of E3) and some people started clapping when he was shown..
