That doesn't make sense though. MS needs something big for the Holidays. Halo 2 would be great, sure, but it wouldn't have nearly (not even close) the same effect as Halo 5 coming out especially if Sony gets Uncharted out this year. I would have thought it'd be Halo 5 this year, Halo 2 Anniversary sometime next year.

If Quantum Break slips into 2015, then what would be their big Holiday 2014 title? Sunset Overdrive?

With the lack of PS4 game info outside of the coupke we've heard about I think it could when you compare software lineups
Egh, we know about the same amount of info for the X1 games as we do for PS4. We've no idea when Quatum Break, Halo, the new Forza, Fable, or SO will come out other than some vague 2014 statements for a few of them. Same thing for Sony with The Order, Uncharted, and Driveclub (along with their entire Japanese lineup).

I mean with Major Nelson hinting around about I Love Bees and what not, is anyone surprised?

Also, milking your exclusives with remakes is the cool thing to do. Ask Nintendo. Fresh coat of paint, $60 please.

I'm waiting on that Halo 3 PC port that has been kicking around on SteamDB leaks from time to time.

Halo 2 Anni with multiplayer will sell way more Xbones than Halo 5 could ever dream of.

I am so hyped. I always loved Halo 2 but thought it had the shittiest graphics ever. Even worse than Combat Evolved imo.

I don't think the announcement of a Halo 2 remake and Halo 5 not coming till next year is going to cause people to second guess buying a PS4 this year.
It would me. I would still be on xbl to this day playing halo 2 if they didn't kill the servers. Phantom Dust as well. I don't know how many people remember the awesomeness of halo 2 multi. It hasn't quite been the same since.

I've been saying since last year that I expect h2 anniversary this year and H5 next year. I couldn't believe some thought we'd get H5 this year when we haven't seen a single screenshot.

Character models looked better but the environments were always more pleasing to me in Halo CE. The texture work was certainly better.

If the Halo 2 remake turns out to be true they better NOT take out any of the Easter eggs or glitches. I want this remake to be intact just with flasher updated graphics.

I've always thought that Halo 2 was a game inside a game.

Because I want explore every nook and cranny again, Superjump, Sword cancel, find that certain weapon using the Banshee, Quad shot (even though quite bad at it) and BxR around corners.By having the last two things it will bring back a higher level of competitiveness in multiplayer.

Keep all these things intact just like back in 04 then I will be a very happy man.

Uncharted will not come out in 2014. Absolutely nothing has been shown or said of that game other than a brief 30 second teaser of a map and a voice over.

Which means holiday 2015 is going to be massive. Fallout 4 (possibly), halo 5, and uncharted 4.

So Halo 2 remake is their big hitter this holiday? I don't see that selling well other than to die-hard Halo fans. Anyone have OG Halo anniversay sales? I don't think that did much.

If Sony manages to release Uncharted 4 they'll be in a really good position. If all they have is The Order than Microsoft is safe.

Halo 2 with original multiplayer would be huge. People would go nuts for that.

It didn't have proper multiplayer.

You could also ask Sony with there numerous HD collections.

This is a great thing for Halo fans. Halo 2 deserves an HD remake. I hope they do right by the multiplayer especially since they are shutting the PC servers.

Gettin' an early wakeup call from Sony seems to have knocked some sense into Microsoft finally. This is why competition is good If you're a gamer

According to this: [Edit: apparently the site is blocked :S] (not sure how reliable it is...) it sold 2.21 million.

However it was a pretty basic remake. If Halo 2 Anniversary is a full blown game with MP and everything and some proper marketing... I could see it selling a fair sum.

I don't think uncharted 4 is coming until 2015 at the earliest. Would be very surprised if it came out this year.

Anyway, a new/improved Halo 2 would be cool. Was expecting Halo 5 but Halo 2 anniversary makes more sense. Celebrate 10th anniversary while polishing up Halo 5 which I guess will be a 2015 game.

Halo 3 came out 2 years after the 360 launched too now that I think about it.

Most excellent. I was really looking forward to Halo 5, but Halo 2 Anniversary and Crackdown 3 is awesome news. Crackdown; I am so ready!

What about Quantum Break and Sunset Overdrive? MS's Fall lineup looks fine to me. Too bad Halo 5 isn't hitting but be dumb to have both 2's remake and 5 at the same time

Halo CEA was $40 new. Maybe Halo 2 Anniversary will be, too.

Awesome. But there are still so many questions!

Will it use the original Halo 2 engine, or the Halo 4 engine, or something else? Will they add shit like armor abilities and killstreaks? Will it include classic versions of the H2 maps, or updated versions, or both? Will the button glitches be included?

I'm not actually expecting you to answer these, I'm just thinking out loud.

Ok, Crackdown + The Cloud as a dedicated server type thing is the perfect game.

Imagine a stupidly huge city with around a hundred agents running around and having a grand old time. Stuff blowing off everywhere, like Just Cause MP but with daft objectives that cycle.

oh gosh i want that.
