Halo: Reach 'bending the Xbox as far as it'll bend,' Bungie assures

Much like Uncharted 2: Among Thieves demonstrated in 2009, Halo: Reach will be expected to deliver an experience that not only speaks highly of its developer, but also of the technological capabilities and commercial identity of its home platform. Whereas Halo 3: ODST was built upon Bungie's 2007 space hoop outing (has it already been that long?), the developer tells Edge that its next shooter is already "bending the Xbox as far as it'll bend." Surely that voids the warranty?

"We are... taking every advantage of everything on the CPU and GPU, and every bit of memory in order to produce the look of Reach beyond anything of Halo 3, " creative director Marcus Lehto noted, attributing the evolution -- which also benefits the size of environments and complexity of the AI -- to increased understanding of the hardware. "We're pushing it as far as we can go," Lehto said. "With every iteration we understand what more we can exploit with the hardware."

Chalk up another win for longer console life cycles -- and for long-running franchises.

"We're pushing it as far as we can go,"

And still probably won't be able to reach a resolution of 720p.   ;)

Graphics are the least important thing to me in a game.
Can't wait for Shenmue 3



I hate jokes that rely on visual imagery.

I've had it right up to here with them.

Just have to look at Dragon Age: Origins, to see that this sentence is correct.

Amazing game.  Crappy Ps2 era graphics.  Gameplay > Graphics.  Which is why I still play old Final Fantasy games :D

Honour, Respect, Loyalty.
