2011 update to pave way for fourth game, says GM
wow there are allot of retards in here what are some of you guys even talking about?
To be fair Metal Gear Solid has pumped out a good amount of games the past ten years, so has COD, so has Battlefield, etc. Just like in ANY series, fans of the series want to see more games made. Youre only knocking on Halo because it makes more money.
Best Halo of the lot and deserves a remake more than the latest games with maybe a bit of extra content to make it worth buying. The question is can 343 do a good job?? Only time will tell.. However the most concerning thing is it seems MS wants one Halo game per year..
What's the point? It's not like you can't play the original one on your 360.
The point is making the first Halo more accesible for a wider audience that cares about improved graphics and sound to experience an epic story again or for the first time. Same thing can be said about PS2 games. It's not like you can't buy and play ICO/SoTC, Splinter Cell, Prince Of Persia, Sly and God Of War games on a PS2 which is being sold for dirt cheap right now.
but it would be cheaper to buy the HD remakes and u get trophys and the whole franchise on 1 blu-ray it would also be cheaper to just get the halo:CE and just play it on the 360
@gamerzBEreal17 You would probably get gamerscore for this game and unlike the original version you might have online multiplayer halo CE style. In case you forgot Halo CE didnt have online thats why Halo 2 was such an improvement
And that Halo CE was the best game in the series IMO
I think it was Halo 2, but both are respectable.
halo 1 with the best maps halo 2 for online
they add online towards halo 1 it be crazy
Try playing the original online through your 360.. Halo CE was the best Halo and its what made the series so big. It's just a shame the games that came after it weren't half as good. A remake makes perfect sense. I just think without Bungie working on it though nobody will know what to expect.. You can bet it will sell through the roof though.
but a Halo 1 HD remake is fail i mean its not like you cant play gow 1 and 2 on the ps3, oh I guess many ps3 owners (myself included) cant because sony removed backwards compatibility in order to resell ps2 games in hd. i have no problem with a halo 1 hd remake, it folks want it then by all means make it. Edit: to remember yes that is archer, and the name Baby Town Frolics is something archer says when breaking into the isis mainframe, i forget which episode. He is trying to wipe clean his expense account and upon being surprised by the lack of security at isis he describes the process as baby town frolics.
Exactly. As long as they're not replacing new game with remakes of old ones I don't mind at all. Also, props for the Archer avartar. At least it looks like Archer.
Is this a remake or a remastering? If its remade with new updated models, textures and map geometry,physics and lighting, awesome. If its just remastered in HD...whoop-dee-do.
Very true. Halo 1 already came out on PC. That was the HD version.
they are talking about making halo 1 with the Reach Engine, so it woulndt be an hd remake more like a complete remake halo 1 looks so fulgy on my 360 no widescreen support just makes me mad
^^^ halo reach uses the ORIGINAL HALO ENGINE!!! although it has been revamped and retuned for reach, it's still the same. i cant believe that bungie never made a new engine this gen
@plenty of tool Oh yea. Look at CE and then look at Reach. Same Engine??? Bungie must be godly devs to make the same engine do that!
halo reach uses the same engine like crysis 2 will use the same engine as crysis 1.
okay if this remake comes with 2 games right before another big halo game (like god of war collection came before god of war 3) and is priced at $40 then it will be fine but you are missing the big game a few months later the remake is the big halo whereas god of war remakes was just for the people who havn't played the first 2 to get ready for part 3 it wont be priced at $40 knowing microsoft and it only has 1 game...
I get where your coming from using GOW as an example and with Perfect Dark HD selling quite well its not surprising MS went this route instead of a new Halo game. Look at it this way what's cheaper A Halo remake OR A brand new Halo game?? The halo remake will cost a few million to do and still sell almost as well as a new Halo game would. More proof though MS are taking the foot off the peddle when it comes to funding outside Kinect.
yes it will fail, 360 doesn't support 1080p gaming, barely sub-HD and it was proven alot, so I'd rather to play my original Halo copy on the 360, but fuck im sick of fps games.
I personally wouldn't bother. Just give us a hugely refined Halo 4 in 2012.
Hopefully they take out all of the parts of the levels that seem to repeat themselves forever.
if they did that it wouldn't be the same tbh. Sure they sucked, but it would change the game so much. Maybe adding more unique design to each space, but it would still change a lot of the feel of the game.
This is awesome! Halo:CE is one of the best shooters ever made. Now it's going to be updated to modern specs? I can't wait to see this!
The best Halo, by far indeed!!
That's what they said about Golden Eye. We all see how that turned out. Halo 1 is the best Halo people remember being, but that's the thing. People only remember the good parts. Nostalgia will only carry a game so far. Halo was amazing when it came out but it hasn't aged gracefully. I think Reach is way better than the earlier titles.
goldeneye wii kicks ass bro what u smokin? I would rather see halo 4 or a prequal. TPS maybe? Edit: A ff7 remake is stupid. The game was good for its time but without nostalgia goggles its an average jrpg. Bring on ffvs13 and ff15.
Halo 1 was/is poo. The only good/great halo game is reach.
You should jump in a hole and die. Halo reach is the worst of the series. Halo 1 is the best fps every made. you're just 10 years old so you've never experienced what halo CE is.... DIE!!!
I don't want stupid remakes... except ff7. I'd rather have them work on a new halo on Onyx(Halo:Onyx)....and save halo 4 for xbox 720
Many love the original and having it updated with the Halo Reach engine would be most welcome. Full Live support would also be great news and is most likely one of the bigger reasons. Not sure what the price will be but it should be no more than $29.99. I think a double pack (Halo and Halo 2) redone for $39.99 would be the smart thing to do. That way the whole series would be made for the XBOX360 with Live support and Achievements.
I KNEW IT! YES!!!! Oh man I can't wait. Halo CE maybe even Halo 2 in the Reach engine?!?! With Achievement Support?!? Gahh. Eternal Bliss. DAY FRICKING ONE!
I hope it's a remake with a new engine, not just halo 1 in HD.
I'd guess using the refined engine used for Halo: Reach! the cleaner look would be awesome
That would be flippin awesome!!!!! I loved Halo 1!!!!!
This game is a classic. Classic games deserve HD remakes no matter what system it's on.
This is good news, it would be stupid of ms not to consider hd remakes. Hopefully they put halo 1+2 in a pack like Sony did with GOW rather than releasing them seperatly over the next 2 years which may very well happen. I would like to see them consider this for other xbox ips like blood wake for example. @below Send emails, maybe they dont think anyone wants to play it again. It was an awesome concept, I wish they kept it going past 1 game. Apparently they were working on a sequel when the game was shitcanned, never to be seen again. "Given such a strong reception, and the long wish list of new features and content that the development team had come up with, it was a no-brainer that a sequel should be made. Stormfront immediately began work on it while negotiations proceeded with Microsoft and soon had implemented co-op play, currents, and multi-level water, as well as numerous improvements to the graphics. After three months a letter of intent was received by Stormfront, but it was rescinded less than two weeks later due to a breakdown in the business contract negotiations"
Oh man. Bloodwake! That game was awesome, why haven't we seen that IP on XBLA yet?
Yes. I liked Bloodwake! Awesome game, fun, would love a sequel! As well as Crimson Skies, a sequel too would be awesome! I think Microsoft needs to look back and look at popular xbox games, And, make (Exclusive) sequels for them all! Like Jade Empire! Jade Empire was one of my all time favorite xbox games.. Jade Empire, Bloodwake, and Crimson Skies. Hell, just the three of them makes a nice list.
o the audacity of MS of making an hd remake of Halo CE. They are so stupid, dont they know that only sony is allowed to do this. Sony fans had no problem with having their BC taken away, and then sold them re-makes of sly-cooper collection, God of War collection, and Ico collections (and problably of every other popular game of the playstation 2 gen which will also be made). If Sony does it its fine, but if MS does it its not.. and the beauty of the sony fan double standards shines on....viva N4G the land of the sony extremist.
If it was a final fantasy remake then everyone would be cool with it. And I am referring to you Sony kids.
best halo IMHO! very welcome! 360 owners you lucky blasters! =D good news
If they're going to remake Halo, they should atleast wait until the next Xbox comes out and release it as a launch title. The game only came out in 2001, its too early imo, (assuming this will be out next year) and besides, many of us are still enjoying this game on the PC as there is still a big community on there. Not only that, but alot of 360 gamers are probably busy with Reach right now.
Awesome, hopefully they are using a brand new engine for it. Imagine Halo CE with online multiplayer, holy crap it brings back so many memories.
PC version has it
Oh, flippety-floppety Microsoft! Microsoft: HD Remakes Not a Focus Microsoft: Halo Combat Evolved remake "a good idea" And now.
I think it's more than an HD remake. They are supposedly using the Reach engine. I would also think they'd add new features to the game rather than just making it HD.
I dont know, this would be the third day in a row of Halo Fakes. Not to mention its from computerandvideogames.com... Just saying. However its clear 343 studios is working on a Halo and we'll no doubt get a peak at 2011 E3 is my guess.
I WOULD LOVE THIS, absolutely. as long as they don't bring the perk system from reach, which even if they did that i would enjoy it, but not to the extent of a full remake with upgraded mechanics, but keeping the same simple everybody has the same abilities.
Wheres my Crimson Skies while your at it?
It's in the MSG dump with FASA.
The begining of the end for a great franchise. I love Halo, but instead of remaking an old game why not create a new franchise or make a sequel to an xbox original. Crimson Skies or Brute Force anyone???
dude brute force sucked balls that game was so overhyped
I agree, as I said above, they needa go back and look at popular xbox games. And, make (exclusive) sequels for them, would be a nice treat. I agree on Crimson Skies, fer sure. Not so much Brute Force. But, also, Bloodwake and loveeeeee to see a new Jade Empire.
The idea is not bad but all in all it would be better if they simply remade ALL the multiplayer maps from the previous Halo games and released them for Reach. The campaign was nice but as stated it can still be played without buying it again. Besides people still play old games in the original form because thats how we remember them, as classics not remakes. I would rather see 343 adopt a Rock Band style strategy for allowing all old maps to be converted to newer games. This would create a massive map library and could create more varied playlists. More people can connect to the multiplayer side anyway.
Are you joking? I'd take a rock band approach if the game mechanics are top notch but ultimately halo reach was a step back for the halo series. The slow pace, the random bloom the one shot dmr, the crouch to increase accuracy.. none of these belong in a halo game. A halo 1 remake add on for reach would be welcome though.. say it runs on the reach's engine but is essentially a straight up halo remake.. kind of like what treyarch does with their cod games where they just tweak the engine. Remove bloom, remove jetpacks and otherwise look at the other aspects which many people didn't like with Reach.
This is great news! I loved Halo CE. Would love to see an update to it. The rumor a while ago was it was being made with the Reach engine which is amazing. Microsoft is going to bust some surprises out next year and I cant wait. Well played MS!
Just one? They should make 1 & 2 1080p with 60FPS, and remake 3 720p at 60 FPS. That would be awesome and release all three in one 3 disk set.
I wish they'd ramke Halo 2 not CE. CE is a classic on it's own, reach's engine won't improve it. Halo 2 would be cool with Reach's engine.
Just like God of War HDs, etc. But the problem is that Halo is shoved down the throats of anything and everything Microsoft and they have failed to produce the variety they need(I think). And since all Microsoft fans do is buy and wait on the next Halos, you bet your asses that that is all you get until you stop buying it up by the millions. And we know that will never happen... so stop the Halo worship, and you may see a bit of variety. Just sayin' @above folks, Oh, and don't worry, if they remake 1, they will also remake 2. The sales will justify it.
I don't know why everyone keeps saying this is akin to what sony is doing with their old PS2 ports like sly, gow, ico, etc. This is an entire remake of the game using next gen technology, not just upscaling the same old dated graphics to 720p or whatever the hell Sony has been doing.
Supposedly its using Reach's engine, add online and you got yourself a customer.
If it uses the Reach engine it still better be 1080p 60FPS, i'd much prefer that to Reach quality graphics which weren't that great - it had so much ghosting and wasn't that smooth.
I'll say the samething I said about the ps2 remakes. Unless it add something new that wasn't in the first one like deleted levels or something added to the game that wasn't in the original version. Don't give me a paint job and throphies/achievments and think that's surpose to make me rebuy it when I have my xbox/ps2 and can play the older version anytime I want. And also halo can be played on 360. So they have to convince me to rebuy it and a HD paint job ain't cutting it. It's a rip-off period and that goes for both systems
SD games look like crap on my big HD TV, worse than on a standard def.
