Halo community turned into COD community that we all used to hate.

So basically, the Halo Reach AR design is returning, as is the original Rocket Launcher SPNKR, which I know was in Halo 5 but only post launch. I suppose that's nice at least, SPNKR is the GOAT and Reach AR is cool too.

What's more curious is if we assume Series X is late November, why are the Nerf guns with codes for Infinite launching so early in October?

Well, technically MS never said that Series X was November, they just said it was Holiday. Technically speaking, Holiday can refer to all of Q4, so October-December, so an October launch for Series X is a possibility.

LOL at the Halo "news." We really are desperate to learn more about Halo Infinite.

Part of me thinks 343 is quiet to preserve hype. Reddit Halo is full of infighting. It’s Bungie vs 343 and more toxic....Sprinters vs no sprinters. 

The minute we see gameplay....the Halo community will eat each other alive with those petty rivalries. It’s gonna be 2015 all over again. I’m.....not looking forward to that lol 

I rarely use Reddit, but that is a shame to see. Personally, the Bungie and 343 Halo games have their ups and downs. Halo 5 had my favorite multiplayer while Halo: CE is still my favorite campaign after nearly 20 years. 

As for spinting and no sprinting. I'd rather have sprinting and the hold left trigger to aim.

I'd love for Microsoft to get a jump start on Sony and release the Xbox Series X on September 17 to launch alongside Cyberpunk 2077 with Halo Infinite and Forza as the other two big games, then Microsoft release another AAA title in October or November. If the PS5 doesn't launch until November that would also mean a lot of the big annual releases would release on Xbox Series X before the PS5 even releases. 

I know a launch in September isn't very likely.

Yeah, I would love a September launch as well. It would be great to have Series X out before all of the cross-gen Holiday multiplats release, so that you can play them on next-gen at launch, instead of being forced to choose between playing them on current-gen and waiting until November to play them on next-gen. At the very least I hope they aim for an early October launch.

I'm on the fence on buying the Xbox Series X at launch as I've been going back and forth between the US and UK. I really need to figure out what country my girlfriend and I will end up. I'm a US citizen and she is a British citizen.

Your last sentence would have downvotes and people would lecture you on how sprint ruined the gameplay. That Halo should be stuck in 2007 for eternity. Coupled with others who have your back lol 

In case you noticed I too am  pro sprint :) Halo 1-3 movement is painfully slow replaying it recently. I like moving like a actual spartan for a change

Are the other Yakuza games releasing on Gamepass also, or is it just going to be Yakuza 0? I wanted to jump into the series but I thought the 1st and 2nd Yakuzas were coming as well.

Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami and Yakuza Kiwami 2 will be on Game Pass.

All of them were announced as coming to Game Pass in early 2020.
