For some reason, MN specifically said that Halo Anniversary was disc only. Not sure why it's not available digitally.

They'll fix that. I assume because how the multiplayer linked to another game.

I'm pretty sure they have said it's coming "this Fall" which doesn't technically even start until tomorrow and lasts until December 21st so they have a few more months to get it ironed out.

Sweet. I still need to beat Halo 4 on Legendary and the last chase in Anniversary with like... a minute to spare or something. I don't think I'll be able to get the Vidmaster challenge achievements in ODST, though.

I don't think it was ever available digitally. Only the original Xbox version was downloadable on the store.

It's actually going to be available digitally fairly soon.

They mention it in the Halo Community Update from today.:)

So a bunch of back compat 360 games I own just got updates around 500MB each. Games like Perfect Dark HD, Beyong Good & Evil HD...

Is this Xbox one X related? Texture packs? Something else?

Likely nothing particularly noteworthy. Theyíre bumping everything up to the August 2017 build or newer. Odds are theyíre just setting a new baseline build. They did this last summer with the June 2016 emulator build. Most games should basically be the same as before, but some may get minor performance boosts from 14+ months of accumulated work on the emulator.

Also, BC updates are basically always that size. They replace the full emulator, which is about a half-gig.

A button should appear on the top of ready to install saying show newest titles. Sometimes it takes a while to show.

I hope this all means that Halo 1 and 2 will be one of the first titles supported by the OG Xbox program. And that Halo 2 gets its Live turned on.

And that Modern Warfare 3 is coming next week.

go to the in-game marketplace (start game>settings>marketplace) and "buy" them there. they should be free if you already have them, and it'll tell you after you do to go to manage game to install them. They'll show up there afterwards.

I had to do the same thing for each and every car pack for Forza Horizon 1 and Gears 2 or 3 season pass. It was really tedious.

Can't go back to normal Halo 3. MCC just has too many perks.

Frame rate, image quality and custom controls just make it difficult to go back. Still nice to see the game it it's original form.

If anything it's just made me really want Halo Reach to get the MCC treatment. Which is something I'd finally learned to accept isn't happening.

EDIT - The Essentials disc from Halo Collectors Edition doesn't work. This is an outrage!

edit3: "Halo 3 is currently not available"

edit4: apparently just had to wait for it to pop into Ready To Install

I remember they nerfed the DMR for whatever reason. It was kinda nice to have another option besides the BR be the dominant rifle of Halo.

Installing it on the 360 would slow down your load times, but otherwise didn't cause any actual bad issues.

And no, it was never fixed, because Halo 3 was super optimized to handle the situation the 360 was in at the time.

ODST and Reach could be installed and had faster load times because they had the benefit of being made aware of installation being a thing.


Anyway, they made Halo 3 (and Reach) Games With Gold a while back, so a lot of people have those via that.

yeah. the exact issue was that Halo 3 always copies data to the hard drive when you load a map or campaign level. So it was copying the data to the same drive the data was already on, it halved the throughput.

This is also why you couldn't install Titanfall 360 at first - they used the disc drive and the HDD in tandem like a RAID array for more throughput. After a while they just said fuck it and let you install it + buy it digitally.

It's slower-paced much more atmospheric than the other Halo games. The story is played out through flashbacks, which is also unique to the series. It also has, in my opinion, some of Marty O'Donnell's best soundtrack work in the entire franchise. But it still does feel very much like a Halo game, so if the other Bungie games didn't grab you from a gameplay perspective, I'm not sure ODST will either.

But hey, for a lot of Halo fans it's their favorite game in the series, at least from a single-player perspective. Personally, I love it.
