Halo: Reach will take full advantage of the Xbox360 power, says Bungie

Posted by: Ahmed Al-Dajani 22/Jan/2010
Bungie has revealed that the upcoming Halo: Reach will be bending the Xbox as far as it'll bend and they are using every advantage of everything on the CPU and GPU, and every bit of memory in order to produce the look of Reach.  
 
 
 
In an interview with Edge magazine, the magazine has been discussing with the developers the new engine Bungie is using to produce the upcoming smash hit "Halo: Reach":  
Edge: What’s been the main enabler for the various improvements you’ve made in Reach?  
Marcus Lehto: It’s a variety of things. It’s not more time - that’s for certain! We had better artists, more staff capable of doing better things, we’ve been learning, improving our skills and learning how to push better looking things in our engine, and of course our engine’s been improving radically.  
Joseph Tung: We took a different approach to the 3D art pipeline compared to Halo 3. It’s yielded significantly better results.  
ML: We are definitely bending the Xbox as far as it'll bend, taking every advantage of everything on the CPU and GPU, and every bit of memory in order to produce the look of Reach beyond anything of Halo 3. We're pushing it as far as we can go. With every iteration we understand what more we can exploit with the hardware.

I dont think Halo reach will break new ground with its tech but it does looks pretty good, seeing that the 360 max out a long time ago. Now im no fanboy at all, dnt even own a single console. Will it be fun, of course its halo. Will it sell like crazy. No doubt its Halo. Me personally i think GoW 3 will be king in 2010 will halo a close 2nd but u never know what could happen.

sad i seen the screenshots the game still looks like crap when i saw the trailer i was like humm i might just get a 360 now maybe it can do graphics like killzone 2 , uncharted 2, heavy rain , but after i saw the screens i was let down no 360 for me dame really you 360 fans are dumb and ps3 has better and more fps exclusives

there it is folks, halo reach is pushing the xbox 360 to its limit and you actually can see the screens which are the results of the cpu and gpu being used to there maximum potential . the game looks good, but not anywhere close to uncharted 1, mgs 4 or resistance 2 . graphics arent everything but i am a graphics fiend and thats why ps3 is my favourite console and my most supported console because it has the most features and capable of producing the best graphics . xbl/psn- dylantalon
