I'm well aware of that fact. However that's not going to be a problem. The only way that happens is if this game gets beyond the worst reviews ever seen by a halo game, and that's not going to happen. Making back its money is not a problem especially if Microsoft is funding them. Halo 6 and or 7 would be changed if 5 didn't meet expectations of sales, but 343 will still get the funds from Microsoft and it won't be diminished.
You do realise that if enough people are annoyed with this then Halo 5 will not recoup its development costs. That would probably mean there would be no Halo 6 and 7, or a severely neutered version of them. People are annoyed because we feel 343's goal for 60fps over split screen was wrong.
It's a little bit more complicated than changing a cutscene. If you'd like to donate, I'd speculate that halo 5 would cost 100-150 million dollars (halo 4 cost 100 million), if you can fund raise that to change everything, good on ya. Your not just going to have to pay for artists to change a cutscene. But for there to be a change in the engine itself and all the assets currently created. Not to mention I wouldn't expect a 2015 release of the game either
Well when Mass effect 3 had a terrible ending ppl online got together and started a fundraiser to fix it and raised enough money to get them to notice. I for one would gladly donate money if it meant I could still play split screen.
Removing split screen in multiplayer I can kind of understand even if it REALLY sucksThe entire halo 5 engine is built to run at 60fps, if you would like 30 fps and split screen, you can fund 343 to completely rebuild their engine and the game from scratch again
Removing split screen from campaign... NO
And the fact that 60 fps over split screen annoys people is a small concern. And choosing 60 fps is the right choice, this is a modern fast pace action shooter that demands high frame rate for a competive scene, if this was 30 fps, I guarantee it would sell worse than 60 and no split screen (you are a minority, if you want split screen go play mcc) halo is moving forward, maybe they add split screen in later halo titles once they have realised how to fully utilise the hardware on the Xbox one, but 60 fps stands as a must for any fps
That is completely subjective - and saying it is the right choice doesn't make it so. From my perspective, choosing fidelity so high that the console cannot manage split screen is the wrong decision as it greatly reduces the enjoyment I will get out of the game, it limits who I can play with - ultimately leading to me not buying the game. This game is a console game, not a pc game, console games sit in living rooms and usually with playing options that do not suit PC's... like split screen. Split screen is a halo staple, it is what alot of halo gamers are accustomed to and automatically expect - and removing this feature makes the game unplayable for all situations I (and many others) play the game in. 60 FPS has no such impact on anyone.
And BS - the lack of 60FPS will have a far lower impact than this decision to remove split screen does as far as sales are concerned.
