Wow, my jaw hit the floor when I saw this new trailer, a must see. Note you'll need to download the new media player to watch it. That's pretty cool also ;)

naw, I can wait until ALL the bugs are stomped out. Not worth risking my current stable rig with a beta rev. just so I can watch a demo.

I'll try out 9 later.

I'm buying an Xbox. I want to play Halo. I'm not so sure I'll care about Halo 2. That was a lame ass short. So it's on a planet? Why not show something about that....

are there any other mirrors? I'm at workstation where we can't install new software. The quicktime link didn't finish loading.

I'm so sad :sad:

After you've played all the way through the first game, you'll care about HALO 2 most likely. It's also not just any planet...that's Earth getting the s*** blown out of it.

Too bad HALO 2 doesn't come out for another year though. :thumbsdow

Amazing realtime graphics though...I can't wait to see the gameplay too.

just a planet? it's earth. covenant are leveling earth. that's the point. you gotta save the earth. i assume the game begins after you've gotten inside that battlecruiser.

yeah baby! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: Its gonna be sooooooo good!!!

Realtime DOF's been in a couple of XBox games I've seen - Wreckless - the Yakuza missions had it

(disclaimer - I'm not saying its raytraced DOF you pedantomatics (you know who you are) just a Z depth/blur fake - It looks amazingly realistic though) :)

Hey People
I am still not sure whether this truly was realtime. Or can anyone explain how they did that volumetric- lighing- effect?
Anyway, cool teaser! BTW, there are at least 2 mirrors around that have an Mpeg- version of it, which is what I got, as I do neither want to DL the new QT, nor the new Mplayer (still use the good ol' 6.x)

No way that was realtime, we are on the verge of getting there, but not before at least a year... Maybe when the new graphic cards will be out...

yeah dood. someone at bungie told me it was realtime.

I haven't seen the trailer (having trouble downloading it) but you can do alot with textures and transparency, so if they say it's realtime it probably is :)

*** I CAN ATTEST THAT TEASER IS INDEED ALL REAL TIME!!!

I am glad some of you enjoyed the teaser :) ...

*** I CAN ATTEST THAT TEASER IS INDEED ALL REAL TIME!!!

[note: i'm not knocking Halo of Bungie]

is this done realtime? from what i'm told, yes. but then again, he's the only character on the screen, leaving the XBOX free to handle the higher polygon count, textures, and effects. Why does Resident Evil look so well? cuase the backgrounds are not really 3d, and there only 3-4 characters on the screen at a time. Why does Tekken and VF character models have more polygons then characters from GTA? cuase there's only 2 characters on the screen.

remember, the game is a year away [if not more] and we didn't see any enemies on the screen [no "real" combat]. when you do a realtime cut-scene, you can get away with alot of effects and crisper graphics since the programmers can control what will be on the screen at which point. just like those tech demos you see when the XBOX, GC, and or PS2 1st came out, they really don't represent what the games can do.

...get ready to be floored next year then... BUNGIE [we] used all game ready graphics [not cutscene] for that teaser, in fact I could hardly believe it myself...move on over Doom 3! :) LOL

damn that stuff is beautiful. the lighting is awesome. some of the people here thought it was prerendered. the animation was pretty damn cool too. especially from the point where master chief hits the button to open the airlock on. its just so damn cool. u guys did great job.

Nahaz

It would be realtime, Bungie, nor Microsoft would dare to release a pre-rendered trailer.

However prescripted realtime graphics are not the same as "ingame" realtime graphics.
