Epic says Halo 3 video at E3 hurt Bungie. Really?

halo3terrainMost of us who saw the video of Halo 3 at Microsoft’s press conference at E3 were pretty amazed at what we saw. But Mark Rein, Vice President at Epic, said that Bungie made a mistake in showing off the footage. Gee, do we detect just a slight hint of sour apples here?

He said, "I think that hurt Halo 3 at E3. Halo 3 didn’t win any game of the show awards that I could see. Well, because they didn’t have to show Halo. There was no need."

Rein then went on to rant, "I’m sure if they’d actually had a big Halo 3 presence, if Microsoft had set up eight machines or 12 or 16 machines so you could sit and play it, it would have won all kinds of awards. But they don’t need to because, like me, everyone’s already placed their order… So I think that worked against them at E3."

Eh, Mark? You already bought your pre-sale for Halo 3 too? Well then. We guess the video at E3 couldn’t have hurt sales that much, now could it?
