I don't think graphics can save cod from the massive bf2042 and halo infinite launches

Why do Xbox fans always want to make it about Xbox properties?

Halo Infinite is going to be competing with COD Warzone, as the MP will be F2P. The thing is COD has been top dog, by a rather huge margin, for so long while Halo's position in the market has shrunken so much in terms of relevance.

Doesn't it sound a bit looney to you, to believe Infinite is going to have a bigger launch than COD, when that hasn't been true in... over a decade or more?

Tone down on the kool aid, eish.

So what’s Toms article about “Not Good, Not Great” meaning with Vanguard. As in the development wasn’t smooth or the game won’t be good, or both? I can’t read into the Twitter thread just see the headline.

ok...sounds to me like you got offended that someone said bf2042 may surpass cod...its never happened, it came close...so what? doesnt mean that cod is the better game at all, in fact, its inferior in every way. but hey man, theres nothing xbox fanatic about wanting bf2042 over cod...or halo infinite. dont see why u need to talk about kool aid and shit when tang is better.

I’m talking about launch size and saying he’s comparing a F2P multiplayer game to a full price, when it should be compared to another F2P and you’re here reviewing games before they release. Also didn’t talk battlefield, and I did bring up sales history because those numbers are facts that don’t need kool aid to make sense.

honestly from watching the trailer I doubt it, it showed some gameplay, it was rare, looks good but not mind blowing, I'm sure they'll have epic scenes though!

It’s cross gen so not expecting to be wowed.

Call of duty modern warfare has excellent CG cutscenes and the vanguard trailer has a mix of 60fps gameplay footage along with 30fps CG, you can tell which is which.

Er Unreal looked, well....unreal at the time.

It sure did.

My post was meant as a meta commentary regarding the time tested "this game looks unreal" (pun intended) cliche that for me personally has lost it's impact.. That's all =) Maybe it's me but I've grown cynical regarding these marketing statements. There was a time I'd joined such news gleefully but nowadays I just see a X page thread of posters discussing marketing sweet talk =/ Not saying it isn't true.. But mostly it devolves into petty warrior stuff =P

My mind works in special (retarded) ways, nevermind lol

I could see it being the best looking COD yet, but that's about it. I can't imagine that engine absolutely blowing people away.

Anyway I seen that majestic graphic in the trailer. Honestly, at least looking the part in real time, which were mixed with the stupid CGI, the graphic doesn't seems so mind blowing to me.

I don't care about any of them, but saying Call of Duty can't compete with Battlefield or Halo is incredibly ignorant.

It will wipe the floor with both.

Battlefield has sold around 57 million. Halo has sold around 81 million. Call of Duty has long surpassed 400 million.

If the part with a parachute at the end of the trailer is somehow in-game footage, then indeed it'll be one of the best looking games this holiday season.

yeah that was the only part that looked impressive but it looks CG to me.

The gameplay bits dont look any better than MW and i dont see any physics or interactions he talked about.

Call of duty has yearly releases, the others don't, and I didn't said that it couldn't compete

250 000 000$ budget linear 4 hour long campaign developed by 500-1000 person team will look good? What a MIRACLE!

Ok, so PER GAME Battlefield sells 1.5 million to 17 million (and that 17 was an outlier, the next highest is 7 mil). Halo sells from 500k to 9.5 million. Call of Duty sells 20 million to 31 million.

The point being, its on EA and Microsoft to get out of the way of Call of Duty, not the other way around.

Shadows were missing, baked lighting, jaggy shadows in small objects. Far from the best graphics

after watching the gameplay, nahh not even close, does look good but not the best, idk why they always hype up cods visuals like they're the best in the business, they make so much money they should be by now but you know activation
