Sure there will probably be filters to avoid Halo 4 maps but if you just go into a master playlist, you could play any of the 4 games.

All one disc, and a singular interface for selecting campaign levels/custom games/matchmaking, etc

I would pay $120 if Sony would do the same thing with the SOCOM series. At one time Socom was Sony's flagship multiplayer franchise, much like Halo 2 was for Microsoft. So disappointing they abandoned Socom.

Thats my biggest worry, I think there will be some Halo 1-3 fans playing but I doubt the cod kids get all excited for Halo 2. It's me being negative really. I like the idea of this collection but my experience with Halo 2 was it was the biggest / best / most popular thing ever and I'm worried I will load this up and have it be find a custom game with 800 people online.

We quite literally know nothing besides they have new abilities. We have no idea what that means. Until we learn about the gameplay on the basic level, it's a bit early to be taking to the streets.

halo 3 graphically was really damn good--all of its issues were almost completely resolution based--when you throw 60fps on top of it then it wouldn't shock me if it looked on par with H2A and H4

Halo 1-4 is not remastered. Only Halo 2 is remastered. Halo 1, 3, and 4 use the original engines. They just run 1080p. Which is still a big upgrade in my book.

Armor abilities killed halo and broke it. That is one of the main reasons people have wanted the old school MP.

Grabbing this for sure, $60 is worth it just to go through Halo 3 again.

I was really surprised how much they are putting in that $60 box. I really thought you were just going to get the online from Halo 2 and that was it.

Well it is running 1080/60 on Xbone, which is a feat considering the resolution/framerate of fps games so far.

No. Fuck that.

Armor abilities were bad in H3, awful in reach and downright trash in H4

If H5 comes with AA, i likely wont play for more than a few matches... and the game won't be taken seriously by anyone.
