XMNR: 343 Industries is ready to put the major development efforts for Halo: Combat Evolved to bed with the Saturday announcement that the HD remake for the Xbox 360 has gone gold.
like how almost nobody cares about halo anymore. I don't think I've seen any Halo articles with many comments. cod is set to share the same demise should they stifle innovation and stick to their same formula
Halo Reach was the fastest selling game on a single platform ever just last year. Please tell me in what way "no one cares" about it. If vgchartz is to be believed, Anniversary is outselling Uncharted 3 on preorder charts despite releasing later AND being a remaster with very little marketing. Come Halo 4 and you won't be uttering that nonsense.
Its N4PS3GAMER dont expect many H:CE A articles. Only reason there were a few Gears 3 articles was because its a sequel not a remake and yet going by sales you cant say people dont care about Gears 3
@ everfighter Tell that to the thousand and thousand of people who still play the game.
By no means am I the biggest COD fan, but demise is not a word I would use with COD. Black Ops has been in the top 10 software sales for 10 months now usually between the #1-6 spots. Your Halo comment... LOL!
It just shows the frustration of someone else success and how out of touch with reality that person is.
Halo Combat Evolved is the best Halo. I am happy to see it reskinned and taken care of right. The shear fact that 343 kept this game 100% intact as it was is brilliant. I am so excited to slay on some blood gauge with my classic sniping pistol again. I love this game and am really happy to scoop it up.
Trust me... N4g is the last site to take as an indicator to what the people want
It's funny how 16 people agree with that statement, the very people who you are talking about... But then again I am included in that figure, so thats a bit of a paradoox.
Wait till 2012, Halo 4 dude. It will move millions day 1. This is just a remake (not even a spin-off like Reach was)
People playing Halo Reach right now probably has more players then all exclusives on PS3 online :D ( Killzone 3, Resistance 3, Uncharted 2 etc )
Halo CE will outsell every exclusive on the PS3 because it's Halo. Also since Halo already has a GOTY award they wont be giving this one GOTY, maybe DL GOTY.
Sorry, if DLC GotY is such a thing, Ico deserved it.
both ico and sotc were great games...but if the update (it's not a remake by the way) has shown anything, it's that it hasn't stood the test of time. then again, coming from you, i wouldn't expect any comment other than something that gives excessive praise to a sony exclusive.
Halo Reach still has a player count in the hundreds of thousands. Its a bit less during the day (GMT) but during the evenings its very busy and you can always find games. Roll on Anniversary!
Actually this is the only Halo I care about. Halo:CE was easily the best one in my eyes. They've all been downhill since then. I'll be getting this but I still have to play Gears 3 first. Too much to do this year.
What can we say about Ps3 exclusives ?? LOL Reach and Halo 3 NPD for September 2007 and 2011 : 3.3 Milions copies Sold, not couting Bundles with Console. Resistance 3 : 180K... FLOP Killzone 2 and 3 : ~ 300K FLOP Uncharted 2 : -500K Meh no one cares about those games anymore, Halo Anniversary will outsell every Ps3 exclusive by more than 3.1 this year. Thank God it has gone Gold, cant wait to try those new MP maps, that epic SP Campaign and those remastered graphics!

And then there's guys that take things a tad far. Don't stoop to his level bro.
I mean you are right, I don't know why people think you're wrong. 360 exclusives sell as much as PS3 exclusives if not more. There are much less exclusives on 360 then PS3, but they do sell a ton. If you ask any random person if they know Halo, they will, but say Uncharted, then they might not.
the number of exclusives available is irrelevant to anyone who owns more than one console. and this far into the generation, i'm sure that's a pretty big percentage. i own 360 and ps3, so i have more choices than anyone who owns one or the other...i still prefer the 360 exclusives. and if i were completely broke, i'd reserve my money for them. it's a tired argument and it's just another example of excuse making from the sdf.
AmaZinG, Of course people care about Halo. Don't come off like troll to prove anything otherwise man. Calling games flops is uncalled for when it's getting defensive. There are plenty of titles across the consoles that don't sell like that. No need to get ignorant about it.
Spoken like a true MS shareholder, but not quite a gamer.
In addition to looking forward to replaying Combat Evolved in HD, I'm also looking forward to playing it in widescreen. The first Halo was only in a 4:3 fullscreen aspect ratio for consoles.
Me too, but like most games it will have to wait for a later purchase. Just too many good games coming out and I'm only buying one more day-1 game, MW3 ... and I'm not even sure about that. Gears of War 3 and my backlog is keeping me sooo busy. Halo: CEA is definitely a must buy down the line though. Especially when it is going Gold so early. It means, very polished!
I hate it when the first comment is a stupid comment and every comment after that are all either calling the comment stupid or people replying with stupid comments of their own. OT - I've had this pre ordered for a while, I'm excited to play it again. I'm just glad it's $40 and not $60.
$30 if you're getting it off amazon :} which I am.
I am so excited to replay the campaign, especially with the redone graphics. I still have my original copy of the game from the old Xbox days. I can't wait to play this game in co-op with some of my friends who never got to play it.
Won't they be holding you back for awhile?
It will be great to see their reactions to some of the epic moments in the game. It's only 2 player co-op which sucks, but its understandable.
Yeah I know what you mean. I went through co-op with a friend who wasn't very good at FPS at the time. He'll be much better when the remake is released :)
