CVG: Sure moving down remake road is great for a bit of gaming nostalgia - it's a route Sony has taken time and time again with the latest HD remastering being the Sly Cooper Collection - but is there really any point above and beyond that?
millions of people would buy it
Yep, they wouldn't even have to remake it entirely all they need to do is touch it up a bit and it would still sell millions day one...unless it didn't have MP then it might not do so good in this day and age.
I'd love to see it remade w/ the Reach engine. Gotta say, I used to play that game EVERYTIME i went over my friend w/ had an xbox :D
w/ means 'with' not 'who' :)
eh its tricky because the engine was completely different for ce. i mean dont get me wrong i agree with you but if it was made with reach's engine it could be a completely different experience.
@Awaken You do know that bungie uses the same engine for all the Halo games right? They just make improvements to it for each game. Lol, kinda how Valve does with the Source engine.
It really depends on the remake. I think it's a bad idea. If it was an XBLA title for $20, it would be ok. Halo 1 was a masterpiece. The real fun of the game was the lack of invisible walls and ceilings. The mystery of the Covenant is spoiled now. You'll never repeat that experience with a remake.
I don't want it remade, if anything just do the remake like how they done Banjo-Kazooie on the Arcade.
Release it for PS3 and im all over it. PS: Please no fanboy remarks, just dont bother since i wont answer
That would happen the same time Sony decides to bring God of War, or any other from the myriad number of exclusives it has to the 360.
One of the most retarded comments I've read in a long time. Ha, pathetic disclaimer, also.
@buckethead so i cant be allowed to experience Halo because Sony wont release GOW3 or any other exclusives? @Element What's retarded about my comment? That i want to play a game? Isnt that the point of gaming? @disagrees Sorry i just wanted to play Halo
While you want to play Halo on the Playstation, there are millions of other people who want to experience Uncharted, Killzone, LittleBigPlanet etc. on the 360. But that simply isn't possible because it makes no sense for Sony to release some of the biggest franchises home to the Playstation brand on a different console, especially the one they're competing with in the present generation. Similarly, the same applies for Microsoft. In fact, even more for an IP which basically is the reason why they're still in the console market.
If they release it on GFWL or STEAM, I'll be happy.
Stop being a fanboy and buy an Xbox
lol, watch out King leonidas, you hurt some feelings. It will never come out for Ps3 though, MS own it.
@buckethead_911 Uncharted, Killzone, LittleBigPlanet dont even make enough money together to beat Halo Sales MS doesent neeed 50 1st party exclusives or bluray your trying to bash on 360 you wish u had one
@crzyjackbauer "Uncharted, Killzone, LBP dont even make enough money together to beat Halo Sales" Even if its true doesn't make Halo better "MS doesent neeed 50 1st party exclusives or bluray" Kinda pathetic, indicates a lower standard when less variety and quantity are tolerated by customers. But your right obviously MS does not need the same amount of exclusives (and I would argue same with quality) "your trying to bash on 360 you wish u had one" maybe he was trying 2 bash but its doesn't take much 2 not want a 360 (especially when u have a decent PC)
well leave the legend alone. Bring on 343 Halo 4. new and fresh things. But i wont pass the HD treatmeant with perhaps multiplayer and forge theatre support.
I know I would not since there are tons of shooters greater than halo:CE. I would much rather play halo reach that a CE remake.
the thing is that evil MS again... is going to try and market this as a hole new experience probably... i wont be surprise if this remake is actually going to have ads and bundles.. LOL again it would be great .. halo CE was the best of them all
@buckethead_911 buggie is owned by activision now not M$. would be funny if it came to PS3 like mass effect 2 is :)
it would be made by 343 who is owned by M$ and bungie doesnt own the rights anymore.
shame m$ killed the company rare they did make good games who knows they might port. m$ lacks first party devs but that explains their poor 2011 line up lmao.
correction. bungie has a contract with activision for one I.P. they are in fact independant
Bungie is NOT owned by activision. Bungie is owned by Bungie. They have a 10 year publising agreement with Activision for one multiplatform IP. Bungie also does not own the Halo IP. MS does. Future Halo development will be at the very least supservised by 343 Studios which is a new in-house studio wholly owned by MS that has several promionent former Bungie employees working there.
not even close...bungies NEW IP is being PUBLISHED by activision for 10 years, and i believe MS still has first dibs to publish all bungie titles unless MS passes up on it
Its not just first dibs. MS owns the Halo IP, as a couple people have stated.
GOW collection-prepare those who haven't played the series for the 3rd Sly collection-there are still a lot of people who haven't played it yet Team Ico collection-yeah EVEN ALOT LESS people who haven't played the 2 games yet plus it prepares them for The Last Guardian But the Halo remakes only point is money, hell they might add some cool new features.
I'm sure many people have not played Halo 1. The series has grown a massive following since then.
A lot of guys missed out last gen. GOW Collection was made to get people ready for the third one, but the rest is for an HD trip into our childhood pasts. Halo Combat Evolved is the best of the series, and I think an HD remake would be great. having online to play those awesome maps. They should add all of Halo 2's maps as well. But if the remake it, they should really unty update in an HD resolution. I don't want to see a reboot. The can tweak the controls, but they don't need to make this a whole new game. Keep the nostalgia. And please do not charge $60 for it. Keep it affordable.
I'm neither going to agree or disagree. But I would have to bet that there are alot of 360 owners compared to the original xbox that didn't play the original halo. It was old news and graphics detered them. So it would be good for the new comers.
Halo remake is pointless...lol GOW remakes was meaningfull? I mean ps3 has no backward compatablility.. GOW is likely the rson for that "convenient" omission Xbox does.... and ppl played Halo 2 to death clear after the release of halo 3.
It'll do well, HD remakes are all doing well.
If people want it then there is a point. Dumb question.
I don't get it, MP based games like Halo are not good choices for remakes, at least not as far as I would see. The SP of Halo CE sucked then and sucks even more now(repetitive environs, horrible vehicle controls, the flood, worst ending level except for Fear 2) and why play the HD remake MP when you have Reach MP?
All apart of opinion. Many Halo fans (including my self) consider Halo 1 to be the best in the series.
no denying its addictive like hell for MP but is it worth remaking, maybe if they redo everything from scratch, but until I see how it will be I'll stand on my opinion that its unnecessary.
I would like to play Halo:CE over live.
I will buy it, the only reason I own an Xbox and a 360 is because of halo. I don't play any other MS game only Halo. I'm PS3 gamer mainly. Hell, I even have Halo PC CE. Tell you what, if they do bring back Halo 1, they had better bring back the multiplayer maps that the PC version had, because they were epic.
Damn right. I'd buy it. Halo CE was amazing, still plays pretty good now.
yeah....its called "Money"
hd remake with new halo game
It is if you are an achievement whore like me :P
Is it just and HD paint job, or a full on remake? If the latter, then I will pick it up for sure. Online multiplayer and coop with Halo 1 would rule.
If it's an exact remake I'm all there. Change anything aside from better graphics and XBL multiplayer and I'll have to pass.
My opinion is...............this is pointless. Make just halo 4 and not just a remake. And this is no trolling.
I don't understand why people want remakes of everything. How about something new?
so they cant do both cause from what i read recently theyve been doing multiple games and this remake is rumored to be one of them
I think it would be great if Halo 2 is included in this. HD remakes for ps3 do well at a 40 dollar price point because of the amount of content on the disc. If both were offered, it may even spur more Halo3/Reach sales.
since taking down halo 2 servers, MS should realize that many ppl were still playing it then (even the 12 after the servers were cut) so they really should do a CE and 2 remake bundle, i bet it would easily do 3 mil the first week at the very least
If they also remade it for the PC too then I'd buy it.
If it's a complete overhaul using the REACH engine then feck yeah I'm all over it. If it's an HD upgrade like what Sony is doing, then I'd still get it. I think the original HALO looks fine using the 360's scaler (unlike the bc PS2 games).
Even though it would just look like another copycat move by Microsoft after what Sony has done I'd love to see a re-make of the original Halo. What I'd like to see though is a remake using the latest engine with proper multiplayer support, if its just a touch up and release I'd be less inclined to buy it though I'd probably break down and buy it in the end as I have every other Halo title.
If sony were to release a game title "my balls itch" MS would soon follow with "my balls itch 2" only on 360. Whatever happened to originality.
It's a cash cow, but then again what eles do MS have next yr
How about releasing some NEW exclusives MS? Halo this Halo that. Looks like you got nothing else..
If it's Halo CE with more enemies on the screen at one time, and more stuff going on, and way better geometry, lighting, and textures and some new levels(say based on what happend after the Longsword bomber) thrown in to break up the repetition towards the end of the original where you backed out the same way you came in only "with flood" enemies instead of elites. Add some new online modes and let us customize vehicles or something like that, add bots and an updated firefight... then yeah it might be worth it. Maybe.
Im a fan but remakes just show how stale the industry is getting like movies and music die remakes stop the past glory move forward old games are cool but dont taint their success , i will not buy one single remake.
Or maybe so 343 studios can have some practice at developing a Halo title with some of the framework already done. It is a good project to get their feet wet and a feel for the game play. Afterwards they can try original titles for the franchise. Everyone assumes 'cash in' when it really isn't.
thats also a good point, start with something that worked with the story, levels, characters and enemies already done, and use bungies latest engine to see how things work and even improve upon (something im sure corienne yu and her team can do) and gain skills and assets for the next real halo game they are working on...this way, the new ppl that didnt work on halo yet can get a feel for the story, mood, etc and be able to take bungies place with atleast some knowledge
The point is what other exclusives does the 360 have? It's not like there's a lot of reasons to have a 360 these days unless you're interested in Kinect's shovelware.
Well there is 1 reason - multi plats. The PS3 is better for exclusives, but the 360 is better for multiplats. So thats good enough reason for some.
I know Halo fans would be excited for this, but come on. I mean its the same thing as the FFVII remake. Just don't do it. I know it was a great game, but leave it at that, make something NEW! Something that will blow Halo out of the water. That would be better than some remake that is going to disappoint you in the end!
