HW Platinum Edition Art Style

OP montgomeryburke

Does anyone remember seeing the old Halo 2 scarab and some hi-res models on the back of the Platinum Hits version of HW? What happened to those being put in the game? What was it there for?
It was the original model for the Scarab. If you watch the 2007 demo gameplay, you can see it in action (It appears at the 8:35 mark.) Ensemble decided to use a different model in the end though.
It was planned to be on the game, as shown in the trailer above, but thanks to the cut in the budget of the game was probably modified (Like the way bases were build and in-game units).

And yeah, the budget was cut in half and kep going down, thats why the trailer looks better, not because they pulled a Ubisoft out of their butt.

EDIT: Seriousley, Waypoint censor a$$?, What about dunkeys?
