@ xanisk89 Totally agree. ODST is just add on. I don't think this is just a big game like COD or KZ2.

its a STAND ALONE EXPANSION like half-life 2: episode 1 or 2

I know right? HOPEFULLY it isn't just an add-on and it's a full length game. That will be sweet.

Isn't ODST going to be an expansion pack to Halo 3? If yes, then why is Gamestop trying to sell it for 60$?

Yeah, Halo CE would be completely worth remaking as well because everyone would want it! I'm sure they'd make a ton of money anyway so there's no excuse not to. lol

why doesnt Microsoft just remake halo ce with the xbox 360 graphics and online i think it would be waaaayyyyy better than halo odst

I really think Microsoft makes great products but somehow I just can't really like them, they have so much money yet they only use it to copy what someone else did and improve it a little bit instead of making something totally new. I do have to say I really like the XboX 360 =+

@ papavicio Uh....Killzone 2 won that....what's your point? You do realize that both CoD4 and Killzone 2 is a much more superior game to halo's dated graphics and repetitive multiplayer.

In my opinion, a good game is a good game. It doesn't matter what console it's on. The Playstation 3 isn't a waste of money and neither is the Xbox 360. The only console that's a waste of money is the wii ;)

All bets on the next XBOX having a pay tv service like verizon FIOS or Comcast.

Uhh, OK, well, other than that the "1 vs. 100" thing looks like it's not going to go so well, did Robbie say, "...f***!" when he was losing to Sparrow near the end??

Just remember CES is all about "Consumers" that's the C in CES... SOoooooo You will not find any hard core services form 99% of companies... It's rare that any do. With GDC, E3, TGS, and so on... Heck even Penny Arcade Expo has a much bigger gaming street cred then CES... There are tons of times to announce for the hard core. Sony is being tactical and trying to get a buzz going at CES, knowing it's not where anyone else realy does so. So Nintendo, Xbox, and Sony Fanboys can all relax, more from their addiction of choice is comming. You'll hear more, lots more from everyone on what's ahead... soon. Just not so much here
