Why would I want Halo 3, Its so outdated already. As an xbox 360 fanboy (yes I admit it) PS plus is doing a better job with their free game offer giving out games that are as new as 3 months old for free and all xbox gives out are games that are 6 years old for free

people just don't seem to understand about tech to run an open world game at 60fps to make a console that could do that it would have over a 1000 price tag my pc cost a bit over and to run an open world game it never stays at 60 it still drops thats a titan with an i7 at 4.2 ghz

Heads up everyone , the Half life 3 trademark has been removed, don't take my word for it there are a couple of news sites including PC Gamer that have confirmed it was a hoax (most likely).  :/   gutted.

I agree with her on Watch Dogs. They've shown so much gameplay, I feel this will have an impact when the game is launched. I hope there's still something left to amaze the gamers.

P.S I wonder for how long she can speak holding her breath.

That dude she was talking about...it's me. But I am still disappointed that after we've been dedicated subscribers to Gold for so long, we get a 6 year old game in return. Thanks Microsoft.

Once you go 60fps you can never go back, 30fps then looks and feels absolutely dreadful.

So yeah, it looks like PC is the only option for high quality gaming, just like it always has been.

I consider Halo 3 free a win, considering i already have live gold and never bought/played Halo 3... so i'll just add another game to my library :)

Pay $500 for an Xbox one so I can play at 720p @ 30 fps? No thanks :-) I'll just stick with my gaming PC. Haven't paid more than $10 for a game in ages!

Thumbs down for trackpads. Thumbs up for thumbsticks. Can you still play Halo 3 multiplayer?

The background music puts me at ease. I'm ready to receive the news.

After playing GTA:V, in shock how much Rockstar pushed old hardware, it should be expected that UBI deliver eithier 1080/60 mid settings or 1080/30 high-very high settings(ultra is for mid-high pc rigs).

What is alarming is when they are now saying if it's running in 1080/30 or perhaps 720/30? 

 That's just bad coding or rushing the game out too quickly, and alot more a development issue then an issue with the PS4 performance, as that console(with it's 7850/7870 hybrid gpu) should be able to handle even Crysis 3 on ultra in 1080p.(30fps of course)

 Still, while i'm getting this on the pc(I7 and Titan gpu, so 1080/60 is a lock) i'm also curious how the PS4 version turns out and will be picking this up for the PS4.

 One thing seems so obvious for those(like me) whom have a solid pc:

-Buy only the exclusives on the next gen. consoles, and buy every cross platform games on pc. (having said that, GTA:V on the PS3, visually is more impressive to me then Crysis 3/Bioshock Inf..ect on my pc. So in time the better developers will get alot more from the newer consoles)

Looking forward to some awesome gameplay with watch dogs

Jess, you and all the girls that work for the gaming websites must have a lot of patience with all the inevitable comments from the gamers that unfortunately fit the age old "lonely loser/never met a girl" stereotype. So well done for that. I will say I do love your dry sense of humor which fits in well with the gamespot crew, so keep up the good work, you always make the GS news a laugh to watch :)

Only payd attention on the HL3 part, and they said almost nothing. I need to stop being so excited about this game

From the specs of watch dogs for PC I consider the fact that it even runs on the new consoles a miracle.

Came here to hear Jess say "sex". Slightly disappointed.

@driftingsilvia I agree. The games are all things I've played before - years ago too.

Maybe giving out the arcade games would be a better idea? Playstation plus actually gives some pretty decent content away.

I guess it is still something for nothing though, just a shame that the something isn't that great.

@LaserXUKM Like ive said myself in a past thread... save yourself the headache and wasted gameplay and just wait a few weeks

@hilroywashere Yep the multiplayer is still up and running it still has around 1000 people playing everyday

@galeta More advertising? More intrusive looks into your living room? (J/K)  While developers in the last few years have amazed me with what they can do with 2005 era hardware and the 'next gen' might be better than very outdated DX9 hardware (~GTX8600, the current 'minimum' for DX9 PC games)  expecting a 'next gen' console to deliver as good or better visuals than even a outdated GTX460 or GTX560 is wishful thinking at best and foolish at worse. These newfangled 'next gen' boxes are underpowered compared to current generation (GTX780) PC GPU hardware.

@TommyT456 Well, I've been with plenty of women and I'll say this girl is cute. I surely wouldn't stoop to trying to impress her by insulting her fan base.

@Samslayer You're the "dude" she was talking to then :) ha! Just imagine, Halo 3 for free instead of the price, which is however much it costs to check the coasters under your mates cups of tea until you find a copy :D

@shreddyz Yep! he came to save her! Clearly! from those lonely losers/never met a girl type...oh wait..

@malakadil I was expecting sexy music in the background, some undressing ahd champagne. Don't ask me why, I don't know, but those were my expectations, and they were not met. Hence my disappointment.

@Sl4cka @D1N02982 Whenever females present us with gaming news half the people don't pay any attention apart from to check her out, at least going by the comments. You'd think all gamers were lonely losers with no girl friends... "whats that mum!?" ...damn gotta go...

@D1N02982 Oh I never said she was hot. She is kinda cute though, and I don't really have anything else to do at work but to write misogynistic comments.

@Sl4cka @malakadil Dude she really isn't that good looking I mean she's pretty but not sexy or anything.
