What about 800,000 people playing starcraft over 10 years after it came out. Thats impressive 300,000 people of 9 million who bought it really is crap for a game with "lasting power"
Where did I say there was still halo hype? People buy halo because they are told to. It is that simple.
Are you feeling alright? This makes no sense at all. That would apply far more to KZ2 than Halo. KZ2 is on a system that doesn't usually serve to the western-centric. Alot of Eastern-centric gamers even bought KZ2 just to pay homage to Sony's greatness. I got it because I think it's a great shooter. I've seen gamers who would've never thought to play a PS3 FPS pick up KZ2 or Resistance 2 just because of hype. Sony had to pander to the west because the west has the strongest consumption rate and Japan isn't showing any signs of compliance right now. Eastern-centric gamers didn't have to follow suit...but they did because hype. Actually FPS fans should be buying PS3's to get their hands on this game because its pretty good, beautiful graphics, but pretty good.
