I don't remember if you could split screen on gears but I don't think you could. Halo 3, it appears, has many more requirements and functions that people expect from it, that may not allow it to be the most pretty. I don't know just throwing questions out there.
This is precisely my concern. If we want these elements (split screen, physics, draw distance) on the 360, then is this the best we can expect in terms of graphics? To me there are 3 possibilities.
1. They slacked on the graphics. The 360 is capable of much more than this graphically in addition to the excellent gameplay, draw distance, etc). This option is annoying because you expect more from a title like this.
2. This is the most that the 360 can do while still providing excellent gameplay, draw distance, etc. This option is depressing for me. I wanted it all, but maybe I can't get it this generation from the 360.
3. The graphics will improve considerably by the time the game comes out. This would solve all the problems, but I'm not as confident as some of you that this will happen.
