    do you think halo on the 3ds will be possible? Do you think two different companies can come together and make a great game?

    Would be cool, but then we would see Mario Kart 360.

    No, last time I checked the franchise is still owned by Microsoft. Bungie is a free party but there's exclusivity to Microsoft platforms for Halo.

    And there's much, much better shooters than Halo. That wouldn't make my list for FPS games to be on the 3DS.

    Hell there shouldn't even be FPS games on the 3DS. They just wouldn't work well with its control scheme.

    Possible? No. There's no way Microsoft will share one of its top selling franchises with the competence.

    Cool? Maybe. For Halo fans.
    I wouldn't like it. I played the campaign and got bored after a few missions. They all seem to be exactly the same as the one before. And I don't enjoy its multiplayer.

    As a person who doesn't like Call of Duty, I say Call of Duty is better and more likely (definite, I'd say).

    Why?
    The developer does't have to use the touch screen.
    I'd like a FPS where circle-pad is the gun sight, and D-pad moves you.

    They can throw in a touch inventory or something if they want.

    What are you talking about the DS has the second best controls for FPS. The slide pad only strengthens those controls.

    explain how it wouldnt work well. You could move with the analong stick and hold L to be in aiming mode and move the crosshair with the analong and shoot with R

    That's subjective. Don't start a discussion about it.

    Dammit, Guild. You seem to be an argument magnet.

    Well, there is always a possibility, and frmo now on the fight between companies are going to get tide, but it would be great to see a port Halo.

    How about no, just no. Half Life 3D would be a better idea

    Or Nintendo can just make another game like metroid prime hunters and call it a day?
    I mean...it was a pretty good game if your L and R worked (which they never did)

    Wasn't there a Halo DS in production by Microsoft at some point?

    I doubt it, as I think it's kinda likely that MS will be joining the handheld realm in the coming generations, but y'never know.

    I don't know why people think that the 3DS will be suited to FPS so much. It'll be like a prettier PSP. And EVERYONE complains about the lack of dual analogs on the PSP with shooters.

    It's not a discussion, it's fact. The PSP wasn't really a great platform for first and third person shooters and it has the same type of controls. I mean FPS games from a decade or so ago worked decently for their schemes back then (like Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, Doom, whatever), but nowadays, I probably wouldn't bother with a FPS game unless it used either a mouse/keyboard, dual analog, or pointer/analog stick on the Wii.

    I'm just saying that taking any FPS franchise to a system that has a poor scheme for FPS controls is a bad idea.

    That sounds like a terrible control scheme unless you want it to be like Goldeneye and have a metric fuckton of autoaim when shooting from the hip. At which point it would be called "Babbys first FPS" as it would actually have less autoaim than a Halo game. Hell I would rather aim with the touch screen like Dementium/Metroid Prime Hunters.

    I hate FPS's with a passion but maybe the 3DS can prove me wrong with a good Halo, Half Life, Conduit, or whatever. I'm the eternal optimist -- someday I think I'll find one I actually like.
