Thanks for quoting the headline subtext, which we can all read.

Supportingg REACH with what? The community can take care of itself. DLC is still on Bungie, so why wouldn't they be able to let 343 work on it?

Halo:CE was much better on PC, the HDK for Custom Edition was great and my friends and I had a blast making skins and stuff. I was already playing it in 'HD' though.. 1920x1200 baby :D

HarryMonogenis2786d ago

Just remember that he said "we have nothing to ANNOUNCE at this time". There could very well be a Halo remake in development as we speak -- or at least being planned.

In other words he is saying just wait until the VGA awards to see the trailer! It will have updated graphics and online multiplayer.

The statement only means. Umm...maybe. As always. They are not going to say yes we are developing that right now.

Halo Remake would be nice. If so though why only remake for the Xbox 360. If Microsoft's statement is true about giving the PC more game support. Why not remaster Halo 1 for Games 4 Windows Live as well.

and me. I would also like a HD version of halo 2

Substance1012786d ago (Edited 2786d ago )

It was exclusively Full HD on the PC since it was launched. Its only fair Xbox 360 users pay again and finaly get a HD version aka 720p at best. Though they probably will have to pay again once the next xbox launches if they would like a 1080p version.

Edit: why the disagrees, a remake wont be above 720p. For 1080p xbox users proabably will have to wait until the next Xbox an they cant expect a free upgrade from Microsoft thats for sure.

SuperStrokey11232786d ago

Id get one as well, hell i would consider buying a 360 for a Halo 1 and Halo 2 redone collection.

Troll_Police2786d ago

They're holding it for a Holiday release in 2011 and the announcement at E3 2011.

Cueil2786d ago

I would make a interesting if it was a add-on for Reach... to continue the story that maybe some didn't know

eggbert2786d ago

Halo 2 was better, why not just skip 1 and remake 2?



Halo CE > Reach > Halo 3 > Halo 2 > ODST


Reach = Halo 2 > Halo 3 = ODST > Halo CE

The campaign on CE is incredibile, it's the multiplayer that has balancing issues: Pistol is overpowered, Plasma Rifle freezing opponents in place.

Reach has awesome multiplayer and the reason why Halo 2 equals it is because Halo 2 had and still has the best maps.

LOL dude CE multiplayer was epic. 64 man battles on Blood Gulch.. ahhh. And yeah pistols were the shit, pistol sniping from across the map is always fun. I never experienced any bugs like the plasma rifle one you listed, though I was on the PC version and there were these things called patches :P I never played Halo 2 multiplayer because the whole game was kinda boring to me. Halo 3 was good for a while but got boring VERY quickly, there are better multiplayer FPS games on PC with substantially more depth and skill required.

bananlol2786d ago

Story wise id say halo2=halo1>odst>halo3&g t;halo wars>halo reach. This is also the way i would order the campains because a good story is the most important aspect for me, well i would probably put reach above wars. Never found anyone who have agreed on this list though.

Multiplayer id say halo3>reach, but thats because i suck at reach.

Sean Ryno2786d ago

Freezing people with the plasma rifle was not a bug, it was an effect of the weapon. I really wish they would bring that back actually.

UnoMoment02786d ago

Why do I get the feeling you'd have said the exact opposite if halo 2 was being remade?

XRider2786d ago

Don't worry bro I agree Halo 2 was the best in the series.
