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

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.

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.

TLOU invented the HD Remaster?

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Halo 2 dude, Halo 2.

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.

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)

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

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.
