I hope this Halo stuff is true. I also hope 343 doesn't mess it all up by excluding a competitive ranking system like they did in Halo 4 :\

Im not taking contention with that, it was the dude implying we only think its a controlled leak because we're all supposedly super MS haters

CBOAT just needed to fake him e-death and assume a new identity to get MS off his trail.

Dun dun dun duuun!

This big corp (Microsoft, lol) takes control of the city trying to wipe this shit out, because its their drink and they fucked up.

Supposedly there is managed content that will be developed for an entire year, as it is an open/breathable world.

Instant firing. Depending on what CBOAT signed, legal repercussions. It could be very serious. CBOAT has fed us information for years. NeoGAF as a community has grown because of it in some small way. We have a lot to be indebted to him for as a community. I hope we all remember that no matter what we find out.

Yup... litigation up the whazoo, possible jail sentence. Being fired is the least of his worries.

I can't see the full picture now but it's sad we lost CBOAT if the speculation in this thread is true. Seems like he was trapped. :(

Anyway, the information in these leaks are very specific. Seems to me that this is planned all along. It's hard to prove it but with all that's happened, I really can't shake this ill feeling. Maybe this leaker is someone under Penello due to planning information he has.

I'm curious, I don't know how the industry works, but in what position would one have to work to get all the information that was leaked by ntkrnl. They have leaks from a whole spectrum of areas; various games - including reboots of older franchises, ports, and sequels, targeted release dates for games and the console itself, beta information for Halo 5 due for the end of the year, new SKU information (incl price), and apparently also the contents of Halo 2 anniversary editions. How "high up" would you have to be to know all of this, would any ordinary game-dev (with friends in various areas) have access to this info?

I know he posted something along the lines of "incapable of fear", but dropping all of this, all within such a short period just seems to be an impossibility. If this was a real leaker, it would be very bad for their future prospects to be caught, and this would be on their mind. As such, I don't see how they would be comfortable releasing such detailed information from such a wide variety of aspects within the Xbox Division.

Whether actual leaks or a controlled release of information, it is interesting to see, but I wish it wasn't all so murky.

I hope Cboat wasn't taken down by coporate or because some fanboy got there feelings hurt. For better or worse he has been a good source for years regardless.

New guy talking leaks sound interesting but very over the top. Why would MS blow there halo load like that? They aren't in Nintendo trouble. It almost comes off as a wet dream for people.

This no optical drive shit guarantees I won't pick up an Xbone ever if that's the only other option for not paying 500 for the system.

I will not pay 100 more for a Kinect I won't use.

I will not buy only digital after what MS tried to pull with the DRM stuff. I don't trust them with it.

If they're not putting out a 399 Xbone with an optical drive and no Kinect, I guess I'm not going to be owning one ever.

We have confirmation of some of the leaked stuff, giving this guy some legitimacy. Now he is talking about 3 Halo ports being released simultaneously, with release dates and beta invites.

Obviously give me all the info but this reeks.

A true leaker decides what they are going to leak and posts, they don't get baited into dripping information about multiple titles to try and prove themselves. I would think the news that Halo2 remake plus 3 and 4 coming to xb1 is something I would have mentioned before the thread reached 45 pages.

I remeber insomniac compared it to south park, in the way they wanted to update it with current events, pop culture, and memes, etc. Sounds awesome!

Two versions of H2A.

Collectors Edition with the Beta access, the Halo series (not the Blomkamp one)

War Collection with the above, as well as ports of Halo 3 & 4 for XB1.

Nobody wants a port of halo 4.

No wonder it is getting a Fall 2014 release date. Sounds like the developers will be still working on the game after its release.
