If this is all MS attempting to smoke CBOAT out, why would he leak information that could hinder X1 sales (new SKUs, colors etc). That makes no sense... nothing in this thread makes sense. I don't know what to believe so I will just wait. Hopefully CBOAT is fine.

ntkrnl -- Why isn't Halo Reach being ported to XB1, too?

Here is your receipt for one dead, overplayed franchise.
No returns.
Halo has been on rough times for a while now, but there's plenty of room for a renaissance. Make Halo 5 mark the revival of the skill-based, competitive arena shooter on consoles, and we're good. The anti-COD.

Alright I'm waiting for the white X1. I'll also buy a $400 X1 without a disc drive immediately. At this point I don't care about physical copies of games.
I don't think it will be true. XB1 would lose it's Blu-ray playback capability, thus, not being an all-media device in the living room.

I speculated something? I missed where I did that. Don't even know what you're talking about.
You don't seem to have any speculative concern for the things that are being "leaked". That's why I made the comment.

Lol, nah man you always play it safe. Or at least try to.

The only thing I'm interested in at this point is making sure CBOAT is okay. Someone assemble GAF Team Six and break him free. Maybe Russia will give him asylum.

Welp, all caught up on this craziness now. I was feeling alright about these leaks earlier but the recent uber-specific Halo 5 beta comments (6-8 maps for a beta that's 11 months out...really?) and the Halo 3/4 HD ports thought (too good to be true, right?) I think this has all gotten a bit out of hand.

Jumped the shark, if you will. I still think a lot of this seems plausible and has me excited for the future, but I don't know if I can swallow some of the crazier stuff about Halo. Guess we'll have to wait and see I suppose.

Lol at the people thinking there's some major sting operation for CBOAT going on... definitely misinterpreted what was said.

What's gonna happen? MS is gonna murder him? He gets fired/goes to court. He ain't dead yo.

Nope. Are you saying Snap is gone with this happening btw?

I believe the 2‰ is enough to handle all the built in voice and hand gestures. If devs want more they can, but this gives them more power to play with if they don't have any kinect features in the game they are making.

The voice features are clearly popular. Snap and stuff can be done with a controller. The folks I talk to think this means kinect-less is coming.

Not for a while though. Fall at the earliest. They don't want to have a kinect-less sku, but they need to start planning for it if the kinect continues to be the pricey-albatross around the XB1's neck. It's smart. They are doing a lot of forward thinking.

For sure, for sure. I'm actually an incredibly passionate Halo fan. Have been for over a decade now. Halo was what first drove me to participate in online discussion.
