Halo made the Xbox

We all know that the Xbox 360 is a good console, with a massive fanbase.

But could the Xbox have come this far without that lovable Spartan we call the Master Chief? I say 'no.'
Without the tantalizing Halo games, I would not have found any temptation to buy an Xbox.
And now that they've stopped making Halo games for PC, it's clear now that Microsoft realises that just Halo is enough to sell Xboxes.

What do you think, forum?

It would have been successful regardless. Halo helped it get a somewhat decent start, but people would have been on it eventually anyways.

I can say with certainty that wouldn't have been so popular had it not been for Halo. To go as far as to say that it would have tanked, I think it could have been possible, it's impossible to tell. One thing is for certain though, that game was great.

The only way Xbox got so big is because of Halo.
IMO, Microsoft wouldn't have had the guts to bring out the 360 if they didn't have more Halo games up their sleeve.

I spent a good 5 minuted re reading this several times. Then I lol'd at your post about being tired.

I think it definitely wouldn't have been as popular from the start, but there's so many amazing games other then Halo, IMO of course.
You don't have to agree but;
CoD was a fantastic series
Portal is amazing and it's sequel will be even better
The Bethesda Brothers, Oblivion and Fallout 3 were great
The Left 4 Dead series
Dead Space
and a lot more which I'm too lazy to list...those were off the top of my head.
PLUS, the giant abundance of downloadable games.

Halo definitely did revolutionize the Xbox, but it still would have steadily gained popularity on it's own...assuming all those games are still produced.
