I actually agree with you on pretty much all points. Halo I think was just a time thing, it needed more time. By all accounts this is by far the most ambitious Halo ever made and I'm hopeful for a very good game. With Forza and Turn 10 you have a team that were one of the most prolific developers in the business. Problem was they never had enough time to really push the series forward. They now have the time and I'm sure we are in for something special, probably holiday next year. If we get another 2 or 3 exclusives this year not including Halo, then it wouldn't be terrible but we absolutely do need new games and quick.I hope so, just frustrated as a day one adopter. I can play a lot of old games on my new system, which is great, and i can play the best versions of third party games (on consoles) as well. But the fact that microsoft had nothing in the chamber besides halo for this console launch, and even then had to delay that a year, just reeks of either a lack of resources or incompetence. I love my xbox, but the onus is on microsoft to show us what this console can do, like sony did with demons souls in november, but the fact that they have nothing, and for months have had nothing is a fucking joke. The next major game from them on series x is a port of a pc game, and psychonauts will be availible on playstation as well. Imagine how different the narrative would be now if they had forza motorport, and halo ready for launch in november? Why are these games still so far out? Halo was busted, i get the delay, but turn 10 was pumping out a forza game every other year. What happened?
