Well they have said split screen is supported but didn't go into details of how and system link is planned for launch (great for tourney play)

Nah, this was a really smart move by MS. Fans will buy it for 1080p versions, and the curious will say "Okay, fine, 60 bucks to play all 4 mainline halos? done."

Also, I think I read in the previous thread that the music in the Anniversary games would do away with Marty's music. Does this mean I can't switch back and forth from Anniversary music to Marty's (superior) music?

I play with Anniversary graphics and Marty's (Classic) music. Obviously not a deal-breaker, but it's a big deal to me.

I would imagine it's just going to be rerecorded music. It should still be the same compositions (or close to it) if it's truly trying to stay true to the original, and I'm pretty sure that Halo CEA was just rerecorded music. If that's the case then it is still Marty's compositions.

Ehhh. I would much prefer what the original Halo CEA did. Switching between not only graphics, but music was a perfect design choice. The CEA music wasn't terrible or anything (but it did have issues not matching up with the cutscenes, a la the cutscene with Chief and Keyes on POA).

Just really hope they don't screw that up, Marty's music is pure magic.

Man, this news kinda bummed me out. I'm just now really getting into the Halo games (I know, I know) with that bundle of Halo 3, ODST, Reach and 4 for $18 GameStop had, and bought the remake of Halo CE off a fellow gaffer so all I am missing is Halo 2 so I was really hoping a Halo 2: Anniversary Edition would be announced so that's all I'm missing. Does rhe original game work on the 360? Might just have to buy that then as I have no real need for a One anytime soon.

The original games all fit on 7GB discs. DLC Maps and Spartan Ops probably won't add that much. I am guessing 37 GB install.

If I was you I would just play ODST and Reach since they are not part of the package, and then play the rest in 1080p/60fps/online-co-op-glory with fresh eyes. Reach will be good starting point by itself as it takes place before all the other games (except for Halo Wars). Then you can play ODST as a fun little marine story, and then you can wait for this and play the four main Halos. Soulds like a solid plan.

As long as you have an HDD, Halo 2 will work on your 360.

I wonder if it includes all the cinematics too though... Halo four had all the terminal videos and spartan ops vids online and they were streamed to the console during play right?

I'm really excited about this. I've never played Halo before (after rejecting it for so many years) but this collection has pretty much done all the dirty work for me. The fact that it comes with EVERYTHING is a huge selling point for people like me who are dying for a collection to play through without having to switch disk. Hopefully I will enjoy it and this time, go in it open minded. Microsoft did good on this, but why no 360 ver?

That's from the original Halo 2 and that video was put up in 2010. I'm referring to what they showed at E3.

They told it is a mix. Like, they didn't just copy the models from Halo4 (it would be Halo4 and not reach) and put them in H2A, they changed some things. See the IGN interview, it's pretty cool.

I think one of the Elites on Cairo Station was the Halo 4 wife beater Elite :(

Makes sense for a space chicken or a swole Brute to bare their arms, but not an Elite. Never understood that design.

You could probably get the console much cheaper than that by November lol, but yea it's a hell of a deal. Really glad I chose the Xbox One for my first next-gen system.

About :58 in this trailer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fEq29KLARp4

That's some early teasing right there. Might be a while still, but I bet Halo Wars 2 is being worked on.
