The Last of US released in June 14 2013 World Wide.. not a few months ago. It doesn't matter that the content is old, but the fact that we're getting SO much more included in the package is great. 1080p 60fps on all games with dedicated servers for multiplayer alone for me as a Halo fan is worth the money.

Keep in mind, it's each map using the engine it came from.

What was that about 6 maps remade? The rest are upressed?

I'm so confused !

All multiplayers intact. Halo 2 has six maps that are redone graphically, but also has the originals. All dedicated servers too.

You can play all the games' original mp online. They also have 6 Halo 2 maps which have been re-imagined which can be played on a new engine.

The anniversary maps are re-textured like Halo CE Anniversary. The rest of the maps are untouched from the original game.

I haven't payed $60 for a new game in a decade.. There are always deals and sales for new releases if you go to CheapAssGamer. I have a Bestbuy Gamer Club account that takes 20% off new games and usually gives an additional $10 cert. If people don't want to take the time to find a deal let them pay full price.

Bonnie Ross just clarified that each game runs on it's own engine and the gameplay will be the same as you remembered.

Thought I would post this in case someone didn't know or was kind of unsure.

While they're at it with the 1080p/60fps upgrade, I hope that they're making Halo 1 and 2 properly widescreen for multiplayer online, and widen the field of view for all of them, especially Halo 4 which was annoying as hell.

Both. Haven from Halo 4 will use Halo 4's engine. Sand Trap from Halo 3 will use Halo 3's and so on.

No, I think it's:

Halo 1 multiplayer w/ Halo 1 maps
Halo 2 multiplayer w/ Halo 2 maps + 6 remakes
Halo 3 multiplayer w/ Halo 3 maps
Halo 4 multiplayer w/ Halo 4 maps

Am I right or way wrong?

For example, there is an HD-fied version of Ascension. There's also the original version of Ascension.

Honestly, the price is pretty darn good considering how many games you are getting and the fact that Sony is going to be charging the same or more for Last of Us Remastered.

That's what I thought too until they announced the "playlists" idea, which seemed to bring content from a variety of the games ... But maybe not, maybe it just switched between, say, Halo 1 map type with Halo 1 mode, to HAlo 2, etc. But... I dunno because every Halo 1 map is just 4 player, right?

I'm actually curious to see what Halo 3 will look like in 1080p and what I assume will get a bump of some AA.

It wasn't a terrible looking game the first time around, but it was rough around the edges.

Expecting CE, 2 and 4 to look amazing with improvied IQ.

They clearly took no notes from Halo 4 bringing back armour abilities to Halo 5. No, changing the name to "spartan" abilities doesn't magically make them something different. They will still completely break the game.

Oh well, we can play some real Halo at least.

So say bestbuy has a $10 preorder bonus which it more than likely will, coupled with GCU you would be getting this crazy collection for less than $38 without tax. That's crazy, I'm in.

I think 4 running on a system that doesn't force them to use crazy tricks yo make that game look good could help it look phenomenal.

The remade halo 2 maps can't be halo 4 straight...they were dual wielding. But it is probably not the same as halo two as it doesn't look like an anniversary skin...dunno though

Amazing package, but some ambiguous details.

1) Is Halo: CE multiplayer online now? Would be epic.

2) Only six Halo 2 maps have been rebuilt from the ground up, the rest are all just running 1080p/60fps? I guess the Halo CE Anniversary maps will be the restored ones from last year.

Gonna bet that the only way to get a bug-fixed and polished Halo 2 multiplayer is to buy Halo 5.
