Sure - but it was a clip, a "movie" if you will, that did not represent the graphics, animation, or environmental detail manifest while playing the game.

It's just Bungie, post teaser-trailer, always come out with "in-game" "realtime" phrases that make you get your hopes up that it is in someway the same as what you'll see while running aorund as master chief. And it's blatantly not.

I know what you mean, all the cut-scenes in Halo 2 were 'in game' as far as I know though, all rendered using the game engine. No FMV.

They probably just boosted the graphics up a notch seeing as they wouldn't need to calculate any AI during a cutscene.

well they speculated that it would be out roughly a certain time. but it took longer.

Hence the tattooing of the release date, to convince fans they wouldnt take any longer as theyd waited enough.

You make Kamrantaz look sane, you know that?

Halo 2 Delayed?

By Daniel Kayser -- News Writer

Published 3:30 PM CDT, January 24, 2004

Game retailer's websites reveal significant delay for the highly anticipated Halo 2. More inside...

Both the EBgames and GameStop corporate websites have an updated release date for the highly anticipated Halo 2 for the Xbox. Now showing a 6-1-04 release date, the game is being pushed back from the previously listed 4-2-04. While Microsoft's official Xbox site still proclaims a "March 2004" release, the retailers received the news of the delay earlier today. Several other retailers, including Best Buy, still list the ship date as early March 2004 and Bungie's official site states nothing on a release date other than "Halo 2 will be done when it's done. We're all as eager as you to get our hands on this amazing game but perfection takes time."

With Xbox gamers receiving the news of delays to both Fable and Sudeki earlier in the month, the possibility of a set back to one of the most anticipated games in recent memory will come as a major disappointment. There has been no official word on the delay for Halo 2 from either Bungie or Microsoft Game Studios.

Halo 2 dubious for Q1

April.. please?

Halo games

Despite Microsoft assuring the disappointed masses late last year that the delay of Halo 2 would be as minimal as possible, Q1 2004 being offered - Xbox Officer Robbie Bach confirmed in his CES speech last week that this target may not be hit. This is understandable, given that Microsoft are sure to want to make this crucial sequel as perfect as possible, but a let-down for the myriad of gamers and Xbox Livers eagerly anticipating Bungie's next instalment.

Nothing from Bungie, just Microsoft listing it on their website. ROFFFLES ANGEL, ROFFLES AND GOOD NIGHT.

Microsoft own Bungie. If they say it's being released next week, it's being fucking released next week, and it had better be fucking well finished by then, too.

In this instance, Microsoft said when it was to be released, and then they changed it. The publisher delayed it. Angel is right, you're wrong.

If Nintendo say Metroid Prime is delayed, you don't go "zomg, I'll wait until Retro Studios make an OFFICIAL announcement".

You gloated a lot less than I would after having proven Spew wrong, Angel.

Microsofts Official Website proclaims mar 2004. Microsoft being the game's publishers.

Aye spew, carry on being right about everything.

Can you two continue your release-date based flirting somewhere else please?

On the one hand it is the MS website but on the other hand that was the worst website ever and was basically the equivelent of getting dates off of Amazon. It must have been run by the work experience kid because it would still have the wrong dates for games months after MS confirmed dates or games were out.
