I've always viewed Halo as a franchise that was a showpiece for the console. A statement that yes, this is Xbox and Xbox is the powerful console. Halo was the franchise that made Xbox what it is today, and it did that by being a showpiece for the tech.

With Xbox One being significantly less powerful than PS4, I feel it's the end of an era for Halo. Now it's like Zelda and Mario - franchises that deserve so much better. Sad times for gamers these days :(

Halo sucks anyway, yet another dull and pathetic fps game.
With Kinect you are the tool, Microsoft's tool. Now dance puppet, dance!

Arguably, "Destiny" is basically the same thing, but better.

I believe it's from the company that made the original Halo games, as well.

Not subtle enough...

But anyway, never saw the fascination in Halo. Same with Halo 2. Same with Halo 3.

As with Killzone. I actually enjoyed the first one. Killzone 2, not so much. Didn't both with 3, because I had traded in my PS3 by then, and KZ2 left a horrible reminder.

Same with Gears of War and Resistance. Each exclusive shooter has been pretty dull to me. Multi-plat shooters were more than enough for me.

Difference is nobody buys PS for Killzone. Halo used to be a console seller so it's decline in quality is notable.

It's decline in quality... Yet it's still lightyears ahead of the rest of the popular console shooters.

Killzone has more preorder sales numbers than every xboxone game combined and you say it's not a system seller? Your logic confuses me.

That doesn't mean it's a system seller. That means a bunch of people are buying the PS4 and Killzone is the only worthwhile exclusive coming out at launch. A very small percentage of those people are buying a console at launch just to play the new Killzone.
