In reference to the ranking systems, I'm also referring to Halo 3's global ranks, which correlated directly with 1-50. Aren't Halo 3's global ranks technically a progression system as well?

I imagine they'll do this fairly soon, as the $399 is pretty much just a baseline price that needed to happen.

The best part of this is that the classic Halo series is renewed for another generation. :)

Getting an Xbox One in the future for sure now.

The SR system in H4 was the equivalent of the global "military ranks" from Halo 3. They are progression systems however. The Venture Beat Q&A is talking about a unified competitive ranking system (1-50, CSR) for the Master Chief collection across all games.

Yeah, I hear you. The $399 SKU is what I want, but because there are no games I want to play at the moment, the Xbox would just be sitting there. I hope they do a XO MMC bundle with a year of XBL for like $460 or something.

Its not to Halo 2. I was listening to their interview at GiantBomb, and he said Prologue will be in the beginning of Halo 1 and epilogue at the end of Halo 4.

Even though I knew this collection was coming it still managed to completely shock me when it was all detailed during the conference. Just an insane amount of content. Also nice that it finally converted some of my 360 friends from buying into the Xbox One. Good times ahead my friends, good times.

Frankie, are the original skulls still there? E.g. Envy, Anger? (Please be yes, Envy was awesome)

The Cairo playthrough had a very easy to find skull in the Anniversary Mode, so have you switched up the positions again?

Also, is there a skull menu?

I imagine they'll do this fairly soon, as the $399 is pretty much just a baseline price that needed to happen.

In March, an XboxOne including Kinect + Forza Motorsport was $399.00 on Amazon. And I think there was also a deal for XboxOne + Kinect + Titanfall + 1yr XBL for $450 too.

Halo MCC would be an awesome pack-in game. Could sell systems, imo. But not for $500, or $450, or even $400. Drop the Kinect from the bundle, and offer XboxOne with MCC for $350. The $50 difference from PS4, plus the awesome pack-in game, would sell systems. Because at this point, MS doesn't need to match PS4 (who has the momentum) they need to BEAT them. Just taking the Kinect out of the package and offering it at the same price as the PS4 isn't going to do it.

I myself couldn't resist a LE MCC Xbox One bundle that had a wicked graphical treatment on the console & controller. Would pay $375.

Though I still prefer the Halo 2 cutscene over the new trailer version of events.

Chief drops an Xbomb onto the PS4. Blowing it up. Meanwhile the Ps4 fanboys looks to contain it/grab/stop the damage...but its too late?

Or at least that's what i get out of it?

If you drop an XB1 onto a PS4 from a great height, both consoles may be destroyed.

It's a big improvement for Microsoft over the sixth-gen situation where, despite the Xbox being enormous, the Gamecube was pretty much invulnerable.

I do hope Microsoft can get the XB1 rolling with predownload and 12AM unlocks. It's gotta be worth it for them, because I can never trade in a download.

Really excited for this. Pre-ordered right as it was up and now I play the waiting game... not really I play other games.

I gotta go for that 4000 gamerscore though. I read achievements would be made with the previous ones in mind. Definitely up for replaying the campaigns on Legendary for Halo 2 with friends though for achievements. Please make an(other) achievement for the Scarab gun.

Am I the only one who sees the Chief continue to fall towards the explosion (look in the initial center explosion)? The hand might even by Locke's, actually.

Frankie, any word on the original Halo 2 skulls?
