Don't expect a remastering of Halo: Reach any time soon.
Yea, no point in remastering titles when they can just have them with BC.
Agreed.I hope Halo wars is added to the list of upcoming BC titles.such an amazing game.
You can vote for the games you want BC for at xbox.com... you can also check to see which games are getting the most votes. So far Red Dead is leading by miles, followed by the likes of Skyrim, Mass Effect 2/3, Halo: Reach, South Park, Alan Wake, the Fallouts, the Portals, the Bioshocks, the Assassin's Creeds, the CoDs, the Dead Spaces and the Batmans - basically every big franchise.
Stale series, stale remake, and meh for the BC.
I agree with you, but Halo feels so good at 60 fps. If they add it to MCC for a good price i'd prolly get it.
They said all first party published games will be available at launch.
Its kinda late for that now. With 5 halo games already remastered. In which case I would say why not both?
This guy Phil Spenser is way more gamers centric than I expected. Exceeding expectations
Why not have both? why does it have to be one or the other? If you want the remake with the higher res, possibly higher framerates and better graphics then you can get the remake. If you don't care for that then you can just stick with the original. Plus emulators aren't perfect and can (and often do) introduce all sorts of bugs and problems and certain things could just not work right and have degraded performance. So having both is the best option. Though honestly I don't care for backwards compatibility or remakes. @gangsta "OR, the emulator can work just fine and not introduce anything and the game that a lot of people have been playing for years can now be enjoyed the same way on their new system." How naive. Yeah cuz the 360's emulator was so perfect and had every Xbox game ever made on it working flawlessly,....oh wait, it didn't. Come on, the likelyhood of a flawless emulator is very low, especially when we already know its got issues and just cuz they're saying that they are going to fix it doesn't mean its really going to get fixed. And what is your problem with having both?
OR, the emulator can work just fine and not introduce anything and the game that a lot of people have been playing for years can now be enjoyed the same way on their new system. It may be good to have both but it's not necessary. Especially when one option of BC is just as good.
Cause nobody with the intelligence of a 3 year old retarded monkey is willing to sacrifice sales of a remaster for BC.... Same with all the people voting for the Arkham games, Yeah um they are NOT going to be BC not when there is already a confirmed remastered collection coming out in like November..... Any publisher with even the slightest thought of doing a remastered edition is not going to sign off on having their game be BC on the Xbox one and lose out on those potential sales
Yeah but they might as well just pull a ODST and add it to the MCC..MIGHT as welllll
Sorry but id have to disagree. While having it playable through BC would be great i would much rather play through a remaster at 60fps. Even if they just port it over the same way they did ODST and charge $5 for it i would gladly pay for it.
when I start seeing $5 remasters or remakes, I will agree with you. But at this point I will not be buying and remasters or remakes of any games I have already played if they are more that $15. Not even Morrowind, as I can play that on PC right now if I wanted.
If it was just a port like ODST I wouldn't expect to pay anymore then $10 for it. If it is a full remaster the same way Halo Anniversary or the upcoming Gears Ultimate Edition was I have no problem paying $40-$60 for it. But thats just me. I know alot of people dont feel the same way
I disagree. I'd rather have a prettier, remastered version of a game than playing the game through backwards compatibility. When I get an Xbox One, I'd play the Mass Effect trilogy through BC, BUT I'd rather have the 3 games remastered in one neat package with all DLC. I would take the same great games with better graphics than the same game with the same graphics. For example. Would you rather play the original halo on your Xbox 360 via backwards compatibility or would you rather play Halo Anniversary????? I think the choice is obvious.
Halo reach to get a Remake of its own? im not gonna lie getting sick of all these halo remasters but Reach was by far the best halo game IMO.
Halo Reach is the game that I can enjoy.
I just want to play the first forza horizon through bc I hope they add it
I wonder what they will do about missing digital games not on the store ? Like if they add Mass Effect 2 & 3 compatibility. But those two are not on the store. Will they finally add them ?
Every Xbox exclusive should be BC.
They said they are striving for 100% non peripheral first party games for BC.
Personally, I thought Reach was one of the weaker entries in the Halo franchise.
Really? Do you mean in terms of multiplayer? Because in terms of the campaign, I thought Reach was one of the strongest. It was one of the most well-developed, character-driven stories that Bungie turned out.
Great news. This is the way to do it and entice more xbox 360 gamers to migrate to XB1 and carry their games over for free instead of having go pay $39-$59 for a remake and gamers can spend the money on Halo 5 instead. Phil is just on a roll since taking over. Would not surprise me to see them add Halo Reach for free to Gold game for October before the release of Halo 5.
But 30 FPS Halo? ? I can't go back...
So its been confirmed, there will be a Halo reach remastered, just not right now. To all those xbox fanboys praising BC, I will see you when you all go 180 on MS when the remasters come rolling in.
That's not what I'd call a confirmation... besides which, MS have already stated that all of their 1st party titles will be BC when it launches. So even if they all get remastered, people will still have a choice... if anything, it'll encourage devs to go all-out on their remake (like GTAV or Halo 2), instead of just improving the graphics.
@inzo You know what, that's fine. Some people want remasters with bells and whistles while others are cool with old version. Choice is a beautiful thing. The BC thing is already working in MS's favor as developers are giving their old iterations away as bonuses. Buy Fallout 4; get Fallout 3 free with it. Buy Rainbow 6 Siege; get RB Vegas 1&2 with it. I already had 60 plus games on my X1 now with BC my old titles are back (im in preview program) and pubs are giving away free versions of the previous gen game. Win motherfilpping win!
@Inzo How is that a bad thing?...Microsoft's giving you BC(old version for free) AND as you say a remaster later on= you have a choice/consumer freedom to choose. Wow sounds like you hate more options, sad you're so brainwased.
While Halo collection came just before BC & Gears of War remaster is releasing just after the BC announcement. Wonder if they'll allow Gears of War BC, or if they'll hold off on it to make sure their remaster sells.
I believe Gears has already been announced & besides Gears is a first party title pretty much. So how would all Gears games NOT be Backwards Compatible is the question
Hope this happens soon, I need more Reach it has been so long.
Man. Backwards compatibility alone is enough for me to want an Xbone. Once they add a few more titles, I can justify getting rid of my 360 and picking up an upgrade.
Thats fine can we get Command and Conquer 3 Tiberium War on bc list,Thanks. One of my favorite games to play. Get some purp in them lungs and a few skirmishes. Man good times!
its ok we dont want a remake of it, halo reach was god awful, the worst of the series
Well, at least we're playing it on Xbox One somehow!
And I have no issue with this.
I, personally, loved Reach and its wealth of content. I got slammed pretty hard for having my own opinion on Reach being great even if it isn't the most competitive Halo out there. The Forge community wouldn't be where it is without Forge World, plus I love the straight up weird game types that appeared every day on the content browser.
That sucks, Reach is the Halo remake I'm most interested in.
It takes forever to reach the Final rank in the game. I want to complete the ranks in Reach and Halo 4
