VB: At this week’s giant Electronic Entertainment Expo tradeshow, Microsoft announced its Halo: The Master Chief Collection disk for the Xbox One. Arriving this fall, the collection will include high-definition and remastered versions of the four Halo games starring Master Chief as well as the Halo: Nightfall digital video series, the Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer beta (playable in December), and more than 100 multiplayer maps.

'Guys': *Mind = blown*

Microsoft: "Praise the almighty 343 Industries for selling our console." *kneels over*
