The rumors were true. 343 Industries is indeed working on a 10th anniversary edition of Halo 2, but that classic 2004 shooter is going to be bundled alongside Halo 3, Halo 4, and the original Combat Evolved as part of The Master Chief Collection.
I swear this was one of the biggest announcement at the show if not the biggest. Halo 2 comes with all new cinematics and bits and pieces of stories to prepare us for the events of halo5.guardians,includes halo 1 -4, over 100 mp maps,halo5 mp beta, ridley scot series,dedicated servers....all for $59.99? Daammn.you cant even argue with this. Day one for sure.
hell a remastered or even untouched halo 2 would have been enough. this is just wild. makes me want an x1 lol oh well though, im excited for sony tonight.... im sure they will have plenty to compete!
They better or I'll be pissed.
I think they'll have a great conference. I was told by someone the rumor going around is that GOW is going for a late 2015 release date. If they come out with The Order, Uncharted 4, and GOW next year that's probably the biggest first party release schedule ever created.
id love to see GOW, im over uncharted though unless they introduce some serious new features in the next one. i thought the new tomb raider was vastly better than all three uncharted games. i also could care less about the order. i want rpgs, a new ratchet perhaps, and some more of their old adventure games like medievil or a classic like jet moto although i doubt that will ever happen lol
Just needing a little clarification on something. Halo anniversary had the nice touched up visuals from the use of the halo reach engine (could have been halo 4, i dont remember exactly). And now halo 2 is getting the same treatment but will it be the same as halo anniversary (same engine) and what of halo 3? Will that one be halo 3 ported to xb1 or will it too get the hd touch up as well? halo 4 looks damn nice and I'd imagine to fit all 4 games on one disc then they are all likely to be using the same graphic engine (hopefully) or we are just getting halo anniversary, halo 2 anniversary, halo 3 (original) and halo 4 (original).
ALL the Halo games + Multiplayer maps on dedicated servers ? Hmmmmm I think I kind of want an XB1 now. The main problem with Halo is that after Halo 2, they started giving us like 9 maps instead of like 25. Having 100 of the best Halo maps to play ALL AT THE SAME TIME = awesome. I'm not even interested in the campaign although I may actually try it now, but this + $400 no kinect makes me reconsider NOT getting an XB1. Well Played Phil Spencer.
Definitely a fantastic collection scheduled around Christmas people are going to be snatching this collection up like crazy.
Check these out. http://m.imgur.com/a/Y8h6w
I'll have to get an Xbox One at some point for this amazing remaster bundle and for some of the other neat looking games.
It's how you do it, give the people true value. There's no comparing that amount of content for that price, unheard of.
I really can't wait for this...This announcement was the only thing that brought a smile to my face...
If that Sunset Overdrive trailer didn't make you smile, I don't know what will :D
It was amazing but I've been hyped for sunset since May 8th but I've seen a lot about the game already....it's already preordered...i also was upset there was no pvp only Co op...still excited for the game but I almost lost it at work when I saw the halo collection also over 100 maps to play on in MP mind blown..omg I'm so stoked for halo collection
Yeah, they really went all out! Epic collection. Especially excited about replaying Halo 2 remastered, been so many years.
I agree. This was the only true "megaton" at the show. If wouldn't have already played the games i would've bought an X1 for it. but sadly...
4 games, all of them with their own multiplayer, a T.V show to go along with those 4 full games, a Halo 5 Beta, and all at the cost of 60 bucks. I've never seen anything like that before in my time playing video games. Thuway, who was wrong about pretty much the entire conference, compared this to the last of us remaster and other remasters. Dude the amount of value you're getting here is not matched by anything out there on the market. Even if you hate Microsoft and you're never going to buy an XB1 this is something that should be praised. If you're going to remaster something pack it with value and a good price.
all these games have been prevously released and played, for the price of a full price game its worth it to have in your collection
Great deal, now if you never played Halo before, you don't have any excuses anymore.
I have no reason to buy this, I already own every halo game. This is just a waste of money.
Then it's not for you then. When you call getting 4 games plus a beta and a t.v show for 60 bucks a waste a money you come off as a troll.
Of course, it's not for me, I already have all the games, why should I waste $60 for a game I have no reason to replay again?
Microsoft is doing a lot to redeem themselves. That amount of worthwhile content in terms of cost is fantastic. Now THAT is a re-release. And this is coming from a person who has lost faith in the Xbox brand over the years. They may have been forced into it, but they have on their hands a truly worthwhile system that has the games to back itself up.
Can we just call it the Green Box?
I don't want to hear one more Xbox fan complain about remasters from here on out.
In what way is that like any remaster out there? It's literally a decades worth of games completely remastered from single player all the way down to multiplayer on dedicated servers including a Beta to top it all off. I don't see the use in comparing Remastered content from a year ago to this at all.
One way that it's like other remasters is that it is an HD collection of old games.
Completely unrealistic. This is FOUR games in one, some of them have been released a DECADE or more ago. Plus digital content, plus a beta. This is on a completely different level compared to what you're obviously trying to defend.
No, it's not. It's a "spit and polish" on a tired franchise.
lol halo, is boring as all hell tho?. battlefield HL ppl.. to up 4 shoe.
And here I am, respecting the English language; both written and spoken.
lol. you should, i mean do i need to spell correctly on a game site.. ppl opinions abouttt how i spellll is tinyy to sayy the leasttt. enjoy your halo,..
It's not that. I can deal with the fact that people don't always use proper grammar. But when you purposely butcher the English language for the sake of it, what's the point? You are actually putting in effort to use improper spelling and punctuation. It's never made sense to me.
First of all, that's great value. It highlight how much people are being ripped off for other remakes. I got to be honest though and say i played halo 3, and i thought it sucked. It just didn't interest me. Can't knock the value though, that's an awesome deal.
MEH! If I wanted to play old games I would just play them. I have no interest in buying them again with a fancy new paint job. Give me something new or GTFO. The 100 multiplayer maps do sound cool if it has the gameplay of Halo 4 if it's the style of the old games I'll pass.
This could very well lead me to get an Xbox1.
Well looks like I am buying an Xbox One. Didn't get a chance to play Halo 4 cause my 360 broke before it came out and mainly game on PC. Looks like I get to play 4 and replay the other to before 5 comes out.
If you're a Halo fanboy of course you're going to love it. Just like DMC fanboys loved the HD collection. I always though Halo was generic and unoriginal, even when I was a hardcore Xbawt from 2002-2010.
Yo picture tho
Sadly the DMC collection was half assed in the sense that the footage wasn't remastered or touched... at all.
Considering this was the only thing worth mentioning at E3, they did do a great job regarding bang for the buck.
