343 Industries developer Dan Ayoub previews the Microsoft Xbox One Halo The Master Chief Collection in this exclusive interview from the Xbox Showcase in San Francisco.
This is a cool idea bringing all the old games to next gen, but it doesn't replace Halo 5 being delayed.
i think it's good H5 is delayed. Let us enjoy this collection for a bit longer. I know from a sales point u want ur flagship title out there but I'm confident this will hold us over for a long time
I agree, I have no problem with this. 4 games, beta invite and a TV series for $60. If extra time is needed for Halo 5 honestly take all the time you need, do it right or not at all. I'd rather you spend 3-5 years making a killer game than a rushed out cash cow. 3 years is perfect between sequels, though rockstar showed us 5 years is fine when the product is of such high quality. I only wish CoD and Assassins Creed would follow. The break between iterations is nice and keeps the series feeling fresh. You aren't going to find a better multiplayer shooter experience this year on Xbox, and never get this good of experience ever on any other platform, PC included. This game is a true fan service and not trying to make a quick buck with a rerelease happening within a year of the original. I don't think we needed a Halo 4 remaster so soon but its nice will be able to play all the Halos (good ones at least, lol Reach) on one platform, and I have my fingers crossed they will be able to integrate 5 and 6 into a single interface. All 6 games of the master chief saga all in one place would be a dream come true and really the standard to which all series should be measured. I'd be down for having a lot more series doing this setup as long as they turn out to be this high quality. I'd love to see the WWII CoD's, SOCOM franchise, Ghost Recon and Rainbow 6, Ninja Gaidens, and others all get this treatment.
Halo 5 was not delayed. Halo games always have a minimum of 3 year rev cycles, Halo 5 was never announced as a 2014 game, and releasing the MCC IN 2014 was their plan from the beginning.
Spectacular value Loved watching the campaign and MP shots, really takes me back and shows why these games set the standard for fps.
This game sparks some interest in the Xbone but one series is not enough reason for me to pick up one still, it's still waaaay over priced to rebuy games I already own.
Cool Story Bro. Can you NOT tell it again? Seriously, if you don't want it...Don't comment.
Wow Xbox fanboys are so uptight. I compliment the system and you still get butthurt. Ease up, I've played Halo since day 1, this entices me it's a COMPLIMENT.
Uptight? I'm calling you out for being full of it. Complimenting the system? You called it a "waaay over priced" machine. What that sparks some interest in the X1 for you? If you gave a crap about Halo you'd get an X1. It's the place to play Halo. MC Collection(CE-4) Halo: Nightfall Halo Spielberg Series Halo 5 Guardians Halo Spinoff sequels (Halo Wars 2/Halo ODST 2/Etc...) If Halo sparks any interest then get an X1. If you think of it as "One game" then you truly are a limited moron. Because it's a Multi billion dollar franchise that has lots of money being pooled into it. So yeah...Call me an "Xbox fanboy" but I know you're full of it.
It only sparks interest in people who already are dedicated Xbox fans. I don't see it getting outside gamers to get the XO. Which is not a bad thing for the Xbox gamers.
Or multi-platform owners wanting to use their X1
GOTY 2014!!! Hurry up already...
I don't think it's going to happen. Multiple publications have said they won't award GOTY to a game that has been previously released no matter if they are technically the best GOTY. So far I've played some strong 8's this gen, but there's no clear winner if you exclude TLoU, and MCC.
Are we looking at a potential 100Gb download?
This and FH2 could be GOTY.
My X1 is readAY!!!!!!!!!!!
Tower of Power and Cat and Mouse
As someone who has only played Halo 4 in it's entirety out of 1-4, I'm extremely excited for this. It gives me a chance to completely catch up, and experience the Halo universe before I jump into Halo Guardians.
I never played 1 and 2 so hype for this, plus the 100 maps. O_O
I think this is an amazing value for $60... Certainly the best bundle I will be purchasing since Metroid Prime Trilogy for Wii. Get 4 updated games, (haven't player the campaigns 2-4) and a lot of multiplayer goodness. November, get ready for me. Body, come November... I'm sorry ;p
