I will buy this if its true. Can't wait to play my favorite franchise on my xbox one.

darthv722483d ago

To see all 4 games using at least the quality engine that was driving Halo 4 would be impressive on one disc.

randomass1712483d ago

If I ever get an Xbox One I wouldn't mind getting this either. I've yet to play Halo 3 and 4. :)

3-4-52482d ago

Skip 4.......3 was awesome.

Gamerbynight2483d ago

It is a day one purchase for me. I see lots of value and a chance to relive some of the greatest video games I have ever played.

SilentNegotiator2483d ago

I hope it is; it would suck if CE was stuck alone on the 360 and only the others on Xbone.

Blaze9292483d ago

Halo 2 is cool. Halo 3 and Halo 4 is literally - again - a key indication as to why there is NO backwards compatibility this gen. Remember, first and foremost these corporations are businesses.

As a business, why would I allow you to play old games when I can re-sell you the SAME disc only prettier?

SilentNegotiator2483d ago (Edited 2483d ago )

BC can't go on forever without hindering consoles either in design or by shifting a bunch of resources to make every game run smoothly on it. Want to play an old game? Go buy the system it's on, pay for an upscaled version (if you don't already have the original game - remember, no one has a gun to your head to repurchase an updated version), or wait a couple years to emulate it.

DLConspiracy2483d ago

Its not that simple guy. Check out this article a bit. Tells you why and what previous consoles did to be able to.

OMG. I just saw this on reddit too,the excitement over there is crazy...lol. Ill have my complete halo collection with me on my xbox one..nice. I hope its true cos it will be a day one purchase for sure. However I'm quite curious to know if each halo( 1- 4)will include their own original multiplayer modes or will the 4parts have one default multiplayer mode (which would integrate the best parts of all the original mp games in the series)?

HugoDrax2483d ago

Same here! I've been a HALO fan since Combat Evolved, I even own every Halo 1 and Halo 2 figurine. I enjoyed the Halo Anniversary remake, and I'd definitely playthrough the games again :-)

Farmassy2483d ago

This is the big question. I am excited to replay the single players games but I need a good multiplayer that adds a lot of replay value

if this has classic halo multiplayer I will go crazy

pompombrum2483d ago

Classic halo MP sounds too good to be true. I'm crossing my fingers but at this point, I dare not get my hopes up too much.

HyperBear2483d ago

Well...that would certainly beat just having a Halo 2 Anniversary Remake. C'mon 343i, make it happen :D

-Foxtrot2483d ago

I really hope they do a collectors edition for this.

LexHazard792483d ago

You do? I thought you hated everything Xbox, now you love the idea. Its understandable that even fanboys could be fans of one of the best franchises of all time.

-Foxtrot2483d ago

You and the guy below are honestly such immature trolls, what actually is the purpose of your comment other then to attack someone for no reason.

I hate Microsoft at the time being....I don't hate the games

If you've actually read my posts about Microsoft I've never mentioned ANYTHING about their games. Except for Titanfall but that was before it became an exclusive

So yeah don't start shit please

HaydenJameSmith2483d ago (Edited 2483d ago )

yeah what happened to your really strong opinons of MS being the devil ?

Spikes14712483d ago

@-Foxtrot

That makes no sense whats so ever..

How can you hate Microsoft but not their games? So you like Microsoft since they publish the games? Please just leave this earth.

-Foxtrot2483d ago (Edited 2483d ago )

YAWN......another fanboy trying to start shit where there is none

Course you can, just because it doesn't make sense to you doesn't mean others are wrong

I hate Microsfts slimy ways...but I'm not going to hate the games studios have worked so hard on, they shouldnt be blamed.

So why dont YOU leave this earth.

Really dont see how my comment above has offended people.

choujij2483d ago (Edited 2483d ago )

I've hated Microsoft for many years because of how crooked they are. Yet I own all their previous systems and even I even bought Xbox 360 on launch day. Figure that one out.

OT: If this 1-4 pack proves true, would that mean no remake of Halo 3 once it turns 10? If they do, that would mean Halo 3 will be released twice on Xb1?

Spikes14712483d ago

@-Foxtrot

You mad bro? I hate Sony.

gigoran2483d ago

@spikes
Your comment has absolutely nothing to do with this article and your are just making a personal attack for your own gratification. If you have nothing other than insults then you shouldn't post at all.

DigitalRaptor2482d ago (Edited 2482d ago )

@ Spikes1471

I'll make a statement that pretty much sums up your lack of foresight and logic in this conversation. Foxtrot is spot on, and yet you can't see why. Here we go:

"I hate the world we live in, but I like the people that make it a nicer place".

See? You can like people, but hate the cruelty in nature of the world.

You can hate Microsoft, their policies, their treatment of the consumer, their lies, their spin, their PR smoke and mirrors campaigns, their long-term decisions that impact the gamer and gaming detrimentally.... but like myself you can still like the games on offer.

If you have any kind of personal integrity and moral standards, it's possible to criticise one thing but praise other things. It's possible to not let good games get in the way of your morals or enable you to support anti-consumer causes. Sunset Overdrive and Quantum Break look like games I would buy if I owned an Xbone, but I won't because of the principle of supporting what Microsoft attempted to turn this industry into.

The decisions Microsoft have made over the past couple of months are very good for the gamer and the consumer... but they weren't made because of those people's sensibilities, and if you didn't have goggles on, you'd be aware of that. They were made because of their performance on the market in comparison to the PS4. Business... not "giving options".

You need to further analyse what you're saying before you say it, or leave yourself.

@DR

Couldn't have put it any better! Though I think such a thoughtful comment will go wasted here on n4g as im convinced most are 15-19 and have zero idea how the real world works.

Ot: good for halo fans, played most of them but never saw what the hype was about, but happy fans will get what they have been begging for for years from MS, halo2 remade.
