Ok so what would you like to see Halo at E3?

I hope they show large co-op battles atleast 20, fighting hundreds of computer controlled opponents.

IMO the announcement trailer will be a short realtime teaser similar to the Halo2 announcement. Don't expect any gameplay footage, just expect unbelievable graphics and a teaser into the next story. IMO it will be a vid set before Halo1.

In this halo you will play on reach, and we will see a return of the old pistol. It just seems a bit easy to follow on from Halo2 with the next part of the story. Bungie need to milk the halo name and drag out the story as long as they can. Halo Forerunner seems very likely...

Yep, forerunner for me too. As the film will be set on Reach. It will either be that or before.
I do expect something playable though.

I wouldn't count on it. Firstly it would take too much attention off the other MS games, and secondly is not a wise move when hyping the crap out of a game. Expect a playable demo next year.

Aslong as it concludes Halo 2, and goes out with a bang, I think the next Halo will be cool. Some flashbacks to Reach would be awesome. They don't have to devote a whole game to reach. Just remove the Arbiter missions and put in Reach, and you have a dynamite campaign already.

If they do a prequel that is anything BUT the Fall of Reach, I'll be pissed. Forerunner seems to imply their basing the game off that race of creatures that built the Halos. I don't know. All I know is, I'm tired, and I'm scared of change :-/.

I expect realtime footage they would have been developing this game since last year or July 2005 when Dev kits where availible to them .

I expect playable footage behind closed doors.

A target video that looked achievable in real time would shut Sony up .. :P

I sure as hell hope they don't do a PDZ.. (no media at all)

Halo has to be shown off..

I want to see some amazing use of vertex shaders. I want killer facial animation, walk and run animations should be top notch, I want to see wind blowing dust on the battlefield (like the mgs4 realtime trailer)

In regards to the other things I want to see truly impressive looking environments. I want the walls to look really good they don't need to be overdone they should just look great considering the power of this hardware, same in regards to the floors. All in all I want something that makes a major statement in regards to the 360's power. In my opinion what truly hurt the mgs4 real-time demonstration is that it wasn't actually running on ps3 hardware (sure the rsx is more powerful than the 2 6800s in sli mode that ran that mgs4 real-time demo), but it wasn't running on an actual ps3 in any shape or form to my knowledge. I'm fully aware that an actual ps3 is quite capable of running that mgs4 real-time trailer better than what they ran it on at TGS just making it clear that for alot of people that trailer seen running on a ps3 would've done so much more for the overall impact.

Gears of War ran on a 360 dev kit at the zero hour launch event not as a real-time trailer, but actual gameplay and halo's demonstration would be helped in a big way if it was seen there running, if not actual gameplay on a 360 or dev kit, then real-time trailer also seen running on an actual 360 console.

Like I saw at the digital life event in new york city at jacob javits center running in real-time on a 360 (with added effects) and that shocked the living shit out of alot of people there. We expected a video I looked behind the 360 and the hdtv itself no tricks whatsoever it was really running ruby in real-time. It was the ruby assassin demo some people there didn't believe it and asked if he could take control of the cameras and the guy from ati did just that.

I want to see some VERY impressive real-time explosions nothing rendered offline I want real-time and as IGN has said Microsoft seems content to counter all of the ps3's videos from last E3, by showing as much real-time footage as possible to show that they are trying to avoid being deceptive in any shape or form.

My expectations are huge.

I'm hoping in the next Halo game you will only be playing as one person, preferably Master Chief, because it's annoying having to switch back and forth between characters. It totally destroys the sense of immersion.

Just rewatched gears of war zero hour footage and it looks great. I was paying attention to the walls and just about everything in the environments and all of it looks great eager to see how stuff is done in halo and more gears footage.
