Title: (Xbox360) Halo CEA, Halo 3, ODST and Halo 4 coming to Xbox One BC
Post by: Pfeuff on 09:08 PM - 07/07/17
Recently announced by 343i in the latest community update, and all DLC map packs for Halo 3 Halo 4 and Reach will be made free... I've seen lots of mixed opinions about this, but I am very pleased with the decision made here. Mainly interested in playing Halo 4 customs again though.

Oh... and there will be a 4k update with Halo 5 on Xbox One X.

My thoughts:

1) It might be pointless if they don't also announce plans to update the servers. Look at Black Ops 2 - the revival has boosted numbers significantly, but also brought hackers along with them. I played a game where a guy got 46 sniper kills ALL FROM THE HIP!

2) I wonder if it's worth retraining the ST's, with everything they've learned from doing Halo 5.

no word about the MCC or original CE is kinda disappointing, but its 343i so idk why i expected something else

The real big problem with MCC is the unified interface they created which was poorly done, and that the whole project was mostly outsourced during development... hence why it was so broken at release, and still not in an ideal state even now. If they couldn't manage getting the unified interface right and were even just a little smart about it, they should have just created a main menu for launching the games separately, then there would be less potential problems down the track. Alas, that ship has already sailed... and sunk.

Right now I'm just a little excited to see Halo 4 come into the BC program... because ALL THE MODS! (I mean gametype mods of course). It may not look as pretty as the MCC version with sub 720p res and 30fps, but I will gladly trade all that for more fun and crazy customs with gametype modding.
