HOLY SHIT THEY BROUGHT BACK MIDSHIP!

Lets hope there isn't sprint in Halo 5.

I can't see Midship working with sprint, but it looks like Midship's overall scale is actually a little larger than its original version or Heretic:

If MCC is 1080p/60fps I can't imagine this would be anything other less than that. Let's be real here people.

Sure, that is logical. Just noted that they didn't confirm 1080p back then. Dunno what they've said later on.

MCC is old xbox/xbox 360 games, it better be 1080/60 on Xbone.

It looks good, but Halo 5 looks a lot better. There's no reason to make assumptions.

Let's all get together and just agree that all 5 of these games are going to be beautiful.

Beautiful? Meh. Halo 2 Anniversary certainly doesn't look that great. Good, but not great. Expected more (resolution and framerate don't interest me nor do they affect my opinion really).

"Halo 5: Guardians launches in 2015 for the Xbox One. As Microsoft announced previously, the game runs in 1080p at 60fps, and its multiplayer will be powered by dedicated servers."

This year? OK. Last year? Nope. The poster suggested E3 2013 so i was talking about that, not this year's E3. Pretty sure they did say Halo 5 would be 60FPS during E3 2013 though.

my bad, thought you were discrediting the 1080p part.

Wow, seeing Sanctuary remastered brought tears to my eyes. Halo 2 was junior and senior year of college for me. So many good memories

Now this is what a remastered title is all about- reliving stuff from 10 years ago

If they announced a Halo themed console with MC collection... for free (like Madden)? Dear lord...

This is the best wave of Halo news we've gotten in years. It's been a long time sense I've felt this good about the franchise's future! Way to go, 343.

I don't... think it looks particularly great visually. The aliasing is incredibly distracting.

Hope its sorted out for beta. The rest sounds great though.

I remember feeling this way when I saw the first footage of Halo 4 with the limited BR only gametypes with faster movement speeds that they were showing off early on. They knew that was everything we'd like about Halo 4 so they decided to limit what they showed us to that. Later on, of course, they revealed a mountain of features we knew we'd despise when we heard them all the while assuring as to trust them about it.

Point being that I hope this isn't that moment for Halo 5. I'm actually interested in it from what I've been told but I'm still sort of cowering back from it expecting the "Oh wait, we forgot to mention this!" moment.

That Halo 5 beta news thing was so good it gave me goosebumps. Hearing things like "equal starts", "map control", "weapon control", "60 fps", "4v4". Just love it. It feels like just yesterday everyone was down and out about Halo and now we have a confirmed banger in the MCC and the beta this year.
