Where is the HD Halo Trilogy Pack?

Only a few days out from the release of Halo 3 on Xbox 360, Gameplayer suggests that Microsoft are making a mistake by not releasing the Halo Trilogy in a pack at launch. They also suggest that an HD version of the two original games would be a preferred option by fans to a replica Master Chief helmet.

"The hard way, but the more credible option, would be to port the Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2 experiences into HD – much the same way as Eidos remade the original Tomb Raider in their Legend engine to positive results."

they should release it with the HD-dvd enabled xbox 360...if it ever sees the light of day.

ShiftyLookingCow3410d ago

I hope it never does, stuff like HDMI thats fine, but HD-DVD games for 360, just screw that. MS is not that stupid

Bungie does not feel the need to remake previous games just to make a few extra bucks.

SlappingOysters3410d ago

I disagree - I reckon that Bungie would want as many people as possible to enjoy the story they've spent so long constructing. And I think that in order to ensure that they should have provided a means for newcomers to start from the beginning.

Would you read/watch Return of the King without first visiting Fellowship or Two Towers?

these games are already out you can buy them anywhere. Why remake them? By remaking them you lose the nostalgia of it all.

I still have no idea why Final Fantasy games keep being remade. By updating the graphics, by changing summons adding in a new story line you loose the feel of the original version.

Just leave the games alone.

SlappingOysters3410d ago

.. but you need to think like someone who never owned at Xbox. For you it is a case of screwing with your fond memories. But for someone new to console gaming it's all new - and they're not going to be looking at the Xbox section of EB for games, they'll be looking X360 section.

UMMM... Aren't all the Halo games BC on the 360? pointless suggestion. stupid article... finding something to complain and whine about.

SlappingOysters3410d ago

learn to read. The idea is about making the entire Halo story available and packaged to an audience who have never thought in terms of Xbox 1 or Xbox 1 games.

Can you imagine them re releasing Halo, Halo 2, and the New Halo 3 in one pack.

There are millions of Halo 2 gamers that have never played the original Halo believe it or not. Then you get the people who buy Halo 3 but have never played the first two....WOW

Also imagine them adding online multiplayer to the original Halo. That would be fun. And they don't change but touch up the grapics to Halo 1 & 2.

I think it would sell HUGE.

I think it'd be a good idea for the original Halo: CE, as many 360 owners haven't had the delight of the playing through the classic, while most have had the chance to run through the sequel on either console (besides, it's graphics aren't nearly as outdated as the original - I've already played through it twice on my 360, it's still pretty).

What fan and newcomer to the series wouldn't enjoy going back to the games roots in full HD on the 360?

DARK WITNESS3410d ago

there are still so many little things that i see and notice in Halo CE that still set it apart from a lot of games out there.

my only worry would be if they remake it with the halo 3 engine. correct me if am wrong, but i believe the halo 3 engine is modified from the halo 2 engine. I think a lot of the plastic feel to the objects etc in halo 2 came from the way the engine works.

i am no expert on this , but i think the physics and some of the gun fire, nade effects etc were a lot better in halo 1. The warthog i think handled a lot better. when it flipped, or fell off something it moved much more real, like it had real weight. Some of the crazy stuff you could do, like packing loads of frags under it and then setting them off and sending it flying, you could never do that in halo 2 or 3.

these are the things that made halo such a great and different game to everything else. they should do a box of the 3, but not rebuild the engine. if anything they should add live multiplayer to halo CE, now that would rock !
