If only MS had the guts to let go of Halo. It was always a shi*ty series and the only reason it got hyped/sold was due to polished online for console standards and controls. In post CoD era it will not work.
I heavily disagree , i'm no Halo fan but the lore and the music were always great and with tons of potential... it was like Mass Effect before Mass Effect in terms of lore ... IMO MS should stop forcing the games and let the studio (whatever it is) to work with the franchise and take it to different levels instead of playing catch up with CoD or any other modern trend.
According to some stories, they always have so many new ideas for their Halo games, and every single time MS comes and ruins them ... either for time or hardware constrains and then they get the entire fault for failing to produce a big success.
I'm willing to think this is nothing but a result of MS demanding something ... so yeah, to think Halo was at one point one of gaming's most important franchises and now, it's the running joke of the week.
Isn't the main reason of the Series S to be a budget, affordable yet weaker console ??? i mean i rather have the chance to buy the console with some games to play than get nothing because i don't have enough cash.
