Is HALO INFINITE looking like a 360 game proof Cross gen is not the problem?... Is it just the SERIES S?

That image looks cgi rendering from 2001 or some rookie making his first scene in 3D Max. A disgrace to the Halo franchise.
It's not super pretty, but I don;t get it why people have to exaggerate. It seems like its hot take day or something, just bc the news of yesterday.

Someone needs to tell me what year it'd need to be for this to look good

360 isn't from 2001, wtf, it released in 2005 and lasted until 2013. There are certainly better looking 2013 games.
Do you even read what you are reacting on? Or are you just trolling?

I was responding to this comment:

'That image looks cgi rendering from 2001 or some rookie making his first scene in 3D Max. A disgrace to the Halo franchise. '

So why do you start talking about it being a 360 game. Come on, stop being immature.

CGI rendering is beyond what an OG XBOX can handle in-game, though, so he's not saying it looks like a 2001 game, he's saying it looks like a 2001 game's CUTSCENE.

you said seems like hot take day just bc news of yesterday, that's general, not just applying to the one comment you mentioned. The game looks really bad
Ive just seen you do the same thing in another thread. Discussing and constantly bringing up something else. I already said the game doesnt look pretty, you even quoted it. Saying it looks like a 360 game (as the OT says in a weird emoji and Fanboy-ish way) is just straight trolling and unnuanced. Why bringing thsi up after the gameplay trailer being more than a month ago on a day where Sony's Cross-gen plans are questioned?

And then making a weird claim that it is because of the Series S. That's just trolling or not very smart.

Ah, so you do think the 360 thing was straight trolling? Again, there are better looking 360 games.

That said... you ask why it's brought up except it's kinda obvious why isn't it? Miles Morales and especially Horizon Forbidden West look incredible, Halo Infinite doesn't, so the question is does cross-gen really affect all games or was 343i simply inept? I do think the Series S idea is probably bogus, though, the Series S is more powerful than a PS4 so I'm not seeing that argument but the general idea holds water.

Sigh...So it was because of the news of yesterday...

Man, it took a moment... but we are finally there.

Then again, saying it looks like a 360-game is really immature. It is a hot take that isn't based on anything but anger about the nes from yesterday.

Could you stop using the word immature? It doesn't have any place in the conversation. The game is butt-ugly, dude, it's doing things a 360 game can't but plenty of 360 games simply given a 4k remaster would instantly look better, which is sad.

It's just the direction they took, they were focused on making it look old school Halo, and the game play. It's hilarious that this board, who constantly states that gameplay is more important than graphics, completely roast this game that was being made for gamers first and graphics second.
Now you will see it delayed (and rightly so, since it doesn't look so great), and they will come back with some better Graphics to save the day, but really.........never seen a game so unfairly treated that has never been played by a single person........
What if Halo Infinite was ready to go as a 10/10 for gameplay, 10/10 for story, and 7/10 for graphics? I don't think it would have been the end of the world.......

343i's track record is 10/10 gameplay games? lol, sorry that we judged the game on the only metric you can judge it on when you can't play it, dude

Maybe the diversity quota at 343 has far too much strength to leverage the talent?

To me the big take way from this screenshot is the overall art direction is flat and dull, its very basic look of Halo game.

Even games on PS3/360 can look really good with good art direction.



That's true but even on a technical level we're seeing things like 720p textures in spots and stuff. Art direction does matter and the art direction is kinda non-existent in the demo.

343 seems to be the problem. Other studios in Microsoft had done significantly better.

The reason why it looks so bad is because it has to run at 60 FPS on an Xbox One and target hardware was that console for most of development with upscaling techniques instead of the other way around. That explains Ray Tracing delay, poor geometry, pop-in, materials etc.
Otherwise it's just engine limitations and sheer incompetence.

There is no marketing claiming it hits 60fps on XB1, actually. You could be right but I've never seen them say that.

What the fuck is wrong with 343?

No im sure even the Series S can do much better than that

You are thinking of the Xbox ONE S
