Yeah, IDK about this whole thing. Could be good if they do some decent upgrades.

tdrdrgn 06-09-2014 07:36 PM

surprised they didn't announce the price at the conference. thought for sure that meant it was going to be more expensive. glad that's not the case.

Night Angel 06-09-2014 07:36 PM

Day one. So glad to hear Halo 2 multi.

PHOTOSHOP 06-09-2014 07:36 PM

PC too plz

[QUOTE=wwm0nkey;115469034]Only 6 maps are getting new textures, the rest are in there[/QUOTE]

[QUOTE=MarauderShields;115469088]I think it was just 6 that are being remade[/QUOTE]

Ah that sounds a lot better then.

I'm still very cautious regarding having four halo games each with a multiplayer mode. The whole reason they didn't include a server browser is because they didn't want to fragment the community.

soldat7 06-09-2014 07:37 PM

Amazing. I will now purchase an Xbox One.

My only reservation is with the ability to veto. I've always, always, hated that in multiplayer games. Shy of a lobby where I can pick what I want to play and the map I want to play it on, vetoing is terrible.

[QUOTE=Gowans;115469316]I can't get over this bundle, all the multi and maps too... <3[/QUOTE]
Yeah this probably pushed me over the edge to get a xb1 now

Korosenai 06-09-2014 07:37 PM

Once this comes out i will never play anything else ever again. Fuck. Fuck. God is real.

PsychoRaven 06-09-2014 07:37 PM

Plasma grenade this thread in the head, its useless.

Garrett 2U 06-09-2014 07:37 PM

I can't believe it. I'm so happy

Arc 06-09-2014 07:37 PM

Time to buy an Xbox One. I could not be more excited that Halo 2's multiplayer will not be CoDified like Halo 4 was.

Thanks for posting random links, my point still stands, Sony is ripping off consumers by pricing TLoU at $60.

Moofers 06-09-2014 07:37 PM

Could we get a little detail in the OP? I didn't get to watch the conference, and Twitter has been super vague. It sounds like all the maps from Halo 1-4 are included and you can play Halo 1 or 2 multiplayer? What about 3 and 4? And can you play 1 or 2 on any/all maps?

Details, please!

Cincaid 06-09-2014 07:37 PM

Jeff Gerstmann made it sound like it might hit PC as well (on the Giant Bomb stream). When MS demoed it to him, he saw a "move mouse cursor to gain control" (or something like that), but when the demo person picked up the controller the text changed to "move left stick to gain control."

Might be nothing, but who knows.

MarauderShields 06-09-2014 07:38 PM

[QUOTE=LAUGHTREY;115470144]In what game though? The ascension remake looked like Halo 4.

[/QUOTE]

But it was Halo 2 gameplay. The map did look ugly though.

[QUOTE=LAUGHTREY;115470144]
Let's be honest, Halo 2 only had 6 good maps anyway.
[/QUOTE]

lol no

E92 M3 06-09-2014 07:38 PM

I was almost right about that they would show MP with Lockout except it was Ascension. I almost cried seeing Halo 2 MP again -- man the memories. CANT fucking wait.

Darkmakaimura 06-09-2014 07:38 PM

I want this!!!!

GameStop not taking pre-orders yet. I just called them.

BibiMaghoo 06-09-2014 07:38 PM

That is fine, nothing wrong with that. Any more would have been a piss take, but standard price for a new game is spot on for that much old content.

Thermite 06-09-2014 07:38 PM

I'm excited, but having all three games have online multiplayer is a wacky decision. The playerbase is going to be spread way too thin to support healthy populations for each game.

soldat7 06-09-2014 07:38 PM

[QUOTE=mcz117chief;115470162]In a month, all of the game's multiplayer will drop to below 5k players. In a year you will be glad if you will find a match in any of the games.

Buy this for the campaign, not for the multi, since that will die instantly, look at Halo anniversary, it's multiplayer was dead in two months.[/QUOTE]

Halo 2 dude, Halo 2.

[QUOTE=anchorman128;115467117]Halo Master Chief Collection Announced via Xbox E3 Game On press conference.

Over 100 multiplayer maps, every map in the series to date.

Halo's 1-4 remastered in HD with Halo Nightfall videos included. Includes Halo 5: Guardians Beta

Trailer: [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jxuUVJUcv7I[/url][/QUOTE]

My last console was the Gamecube over ten years ago, but I may just have to buy an Xbox1 for this. And I'm not even kidding.

ItsGeeMcGee 06-09-2014 07:39 PM

Pretty great announcement. This has the potential to move a lot of X1s.

Pein 06-09-2014 07:39 PM

not gonna lie, I would have payed $60 for a halo 3 remake on its own.

GaimeGuy 06-09-2014 07:39 PM

Ithoguht it was only Halo 2 remastered?

The way they made it sound like, it's this:

Halo live action thing
Halo 5 beta
Halo 1 through 4
Halo 2 remastered
Halo 2 MP with all Halo 1, 2, 3, and 4 maps.

So essentially, it's a Halo collection with a 2 remake (including all maps from the other games)

amnesiac 06-09-2014 07:39 PM

Question. Only Halo 2's multiplayer mode will retain the original style, while the 100+ maps mode will use Halo 4's style?

ArchedThunder 06-09-2014 07:39 PM

The fact that they are only graphically updating 6 Halo 2 maps is stupid.

Darkmakaimura 06-09-2014 07:39 PM

[QUOTE=jem0208;115471452]Not gunna lie, this is the best thing I have ever seen.[/QUOTE]
I'm with you on this. I waited all for this and I'd run down to GameStop right now if I could.

AcePartyN7 06-09-2014 07:39 PM

It's just an amazing pack, Thanks Dan Ayoub and all #343i staff really, I need to buy an Xbox One only for this pack.

CEA had reach multiplayer which was a very mixed bag and had already been out for a year before that

Halo CE Anniversary's MP was a playlist in Reach. And this is Halo 2 we're talking about. I wouldn't worry about the MP population.

There's nothing random about it: Sony's delivered countless collections where you get 3-5 games for $40-$50. They've done good by consumers plenty in the collection territory. Chill.

TLOU is a year old and is including a bunch of DLC and noteworthy upgrades. People were still buying the PS3 version for $40, for crying out loud. But thanks for trying to console-war-up this thread.

speakerlog 06-09-2014 07:41 PM

Thank you Frankie

Thank you.

However I wish it had Reach and ODST to I would gladly pay another $60 for that.

Monty Mole 06-09-2014 07:41 PM

Microsoft's Orange Box. What value, this is going to be massive. Must have been a huge project porting all this over too.

statham 06-09-2014 07:41 PM

Bought.

Welfare 06-09-2014 07:42 PM

If $59.99, then that's a steal. My entire 2015 will be dominated by this.

ManThatYouFear 06-09-2014 07:42 PM

all halo maps with original engines, that mean halo 1 is online using original engine?

Rushersauce 06-09-2014 07:42 PM

Fuck! Now I want an Xbox One.

HeisenbergLannister 06-09-2014 07:42 PM

Microsoft milking that cow...

jacobeid 06-09-2014 07:42 PM

(Happily) surprised to see the price point set at $59.99.

Ace 8095 06-09-2014 07:43 PM

I'm crying tears of joy.
