I still believe. Still though, if they don't announce it before Nov. 11, I might just have to cave and buy an Xbone.

Does Amazon take out money right away and, if not, do they check if you have $59.99 in your account currently?

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)

I didn't get the impression that Halo 2 multiplayer was able to use the other games maps. Just that the other games multiplayer modes would have access to their own past maps.

This is fucking ridiculous. I've never loved a game as much as I did Halo 2 and a bit of Halo 3. In-fucking-sane! Guess I'll be buying a Xbox One this November...

I know it was and it still was completely ignored. I do hope the game does well, I really do, I am a huge fan of Halo, but every CoD or Battlefield will steal a massive chunk of the multiplayer population plus smaller chunks with almost every other game. I just can't see this game being as popular as it was during the glory days of Halo 2 and 3.

Also, fucking thrilled to see hear the Arbiter again in that trailer for H2A. Keith David is back!!! Trailer gives me great hope that the Arbiter will be taking a more visible and central role within the games again.

Since it's Halo: Anniversary, I wouldn't expect the original Halo multiplayer to be in. Unless they're doing some real magic.

They didn't mention the Anniversary treatment so I'm just assuming its a 1080p @ 60fps port.

considering the trailer for halo 5 said new spartan abilities you may be right. If Halo 5 continues with Halo 4 and Reach style multiplayer then I won't be buying it.

Still unanswered questions.

Is Halo 3 doing the same original/re done engine thing, like Halo 1/2.
Apparently Halo 2's cutscenes are being done by Blur Studios. Whoa, whoa, does that mean the original cutscenes either in the original engine or redone engine are not included and we are getting pre-rendered shit?

Holy sheeeeeeeet. Dedicated servers and everything.

I want this so bad, but the Beast calls me to the PS4. Glad to see Microsoft doing this, it looks like an incredible treat for Halo fans and it shows Microsoft recognizes how much the franchise matters even after recent issues with the series.

My best friend is probably frothing at the mouth right now.

sounds great, but Halo 3 is going to look very ugly if its just the strait game. Say what you will about 343, but they made Halo (graphically speaking) shine compared to Bungie's efforts.

According to the Gamespot article, you go into a hopper and play across games.

Because everything's on one disc and hosted on dedi's, the whole experience should be seamless. Just one population for the whole thing, not 4 populations for 4 games.

Unless they're cranking up the graphics in other ways, the XB1 could likely handle it.

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.

That's the only thing I'm worried about - but by golly even if I have it for a month, Halo 2 MP will be played.

That sounds awful. People can't even keep track of the differences in Reach between zero bloom, reduced bloom, and full bloom playlists. There was also different movement speeds and weapon settings. How is this a good thing?

Then there are like 5 different slayer settings in halo 4. This is nuts.

It's not three separate games, you all matchmake together, then the map from a game comes up and it loads you all into that game. The only separation is for each match.

Help us digital download only folks here! I refuse to buy discs for the XBOX One and need to figure out that the Halo 5 Beta and other "extras" are also going to be made available to those who don't purchase the disk.

Hell if you want to charge me for the packaging, give me a digital download code! I just don't want the damn discs for for XBOX One!
