Jesssuuuuussss Christttt.

All 4 Halo multiplayers with all maps.

All running on their original, untouched engines.

All running 1080p, 60 FPS, on DEDICATED SERVERS.

The ability to mix and match ANY campaign mission from ANY of the 4 Halos, into a custom playlist.

All in one game for $60.
So so so so so fucking good.

Even though this package was leaked and we knew a lot about it, I still got surprised. I wasn't expecting how good this collection would be feature wise.

Holy fuck.

HOLY. FUCK.

I was losing my shit when I watched the MS conference today after getting home from work today.

This was my favorite part of E3.

EDIT: Any links to the original MC collection trailer? It's not in the OP.
 
I thought it said some of the H2 maps were HD remade. But all maps are getting treatment?
6 H2 maps are being completely redesigned and remade, and will be running in a sort of new engine (during the IGN interview it was said it's a mix of a couple engines). All of the maps though (including the 6 ones being remade) will also be available as part of with graphical updates but no actual design changes.

So are they all going to control the same? Each Halo game has slightly tweaked the movement, gravity, floatiness, and overall feel of controlling MC. If I'm in match making and get a Halo 3 game followed by a Halo 1 game am I going to fumble around like an idiot because of the slight variation in control feel?

The MP integration concept of this game is incredible. Better than anything I could have expected. Really want to see how the ranking system is.

No. They're original.

EDIT apparently anyway. Probably will include control schemes that are more unified (considering Halo CEA included Bumber Jumper and some others), but i very, very much doubt they will be tweaked in any way otherwise.

E3 conferences round 1 definitely goes to Microsoft, for this alone (though I did like Sunset Overdrive and the DR3 DLC). Can't wait for this, getting my old Halo CE crew back together.

So, HCEA, H2A, H3, H4 with Nightfall and Beta. Sounds solid.
What about pre-order bonuses from past and or future?

Forge from 3 and 4 present too?

If the feature is available by then
I'm preloading this baby so hard.
Same. I want to buy it digital version since I will be playing this very often with all the amount it already has. Please MS bring the damn pre-loading and digital pre-order. Its a fucking next gen for god sake.

Yea they need to make that happen. To be able to come home or wake up and it already loaded like the software updates would be great.

Gotta keep trying:

- Are H2A's skulls hidden or can they be toggled off the bat?

- Is it a locked 60FPS?

- Is the soundtrack getting a remaster like with CEA?

- Are you using launch builds of the games for multi? For example, 1.0 versus 1.5 for Halo 2, or 1.0 versus 1.1 for Halo 4?

- Is all of the MC Collection content actually on-disc? Do we need a persistent Gold membership to download a ton of this content to our system or to fully enjoy all maps, H2A remastered multi, and so on? Is Live required for Spartan Ops?

Are the H2A cutscenes / terminals on-disc or are they streamed online? What about CEAXBO's, for that matter?

And soundtrack for h2 rerecorded at Skywalker orchestra. And sound effects redone. You heard some of them in the mp demo. And yes, the metal guitar is back.
