I might just have to get an X1 to get this collection.

If that is real time graphics, that is a full reimagining of the game. What an effort on 343's part. I'm starting to think they are more talented graphics artists than Bungie based on Destiny.

Can't wait for gameplay.

It said "Cinematic" trailer so I don't think so. Looks like the same engine they used for the Halo Wars cut-scenes.

Yeah that was on the back of my mind also. But i expect Halo 5 to look superficially like that trailer graphically.

Are there two Halo 2 games getting released?

#8 Posted by kinectthedots (2229 posts) -

Impressive CGI, too bad that's all it was. MS has always been good at presenting trailers that were nothing like the actual game they were advertising.

#9 Posted by WeepsForFools (551 posts) -

@gameofthering: it's a part of the Master Chief Collection

Based on how Halo 4 looks on 360, I don't see how Halo 5 will be that far behind this trailer graphically.

I know one thing, I'm not doubting them. 343 are talented when it comes to graphics.

I am just talking about the trailer man. I am not making any projections about Halo 5 or anything like that.

They CGI'd all of the cutscenes of Halo 2.

[DESIRE TO PLAY INTENSIFIES]

Also the graphics are the least of my care about this collection. It's Halo 1, 2,, 3, 4 all 1080p60, with Halo 1 and Halo 2 brought up to probably Halo 3's level of graphics all strung together in a single game where you can play the entire campaign from start to finish, mix and match missions, and play the original multiplayer of each title online. If you love Halo, there is no reason not to buy this.

If there is a Master Chief special edition Xbox One for this release, I'm getting it without question.

I really wish this included Halo 3 ODST and Halo Reach. I hope they are expansion packs or something, that would be just the best.

#13 Posted by WeepsForFools (551 posts) -

@Wasdie:

agreed.. Reach's space battles.. ahhhh would be amazing.

OMG!

#15 Posted by scottpsfan14 (6126 posts) -

Looks like Xbox might have themselves a Naughty Dog.

But lets see them make their own IP first...

Yup, the face at 0:22 looks horrible and non-human and the eyes look really, really off

This was all clearly CGI.

That said, Halo 4 looked damn good on the Xbox 360 so I can imagine Halo 5 is going to look amazing on the Xbox One. They've got some strong talent working for them.

#18 Edited by chikenfriedrice (10615 posts) -

@Wasdie: Might look like this

#19 Edited by WeepsForFools (551 posts) -

@scottpsfan14: what difference does that make?

#20 Posted by GTSaiyanjin2 (6015 posts) -

I hope ODST and Reach get there own collection... those 2 are some of my favorite Halo games. Still looking forward to this.

Would just be impressive if that was in game thats all. But I don't doubt it will look fantastic.

#23 Edited by chikenfriedrice (10615 posts) -

@Wasdie: They are giving some of these and other custom designs away...so could change if there is an actual bundle.

its like they've put some stickers on it and call it a day. so limited edition.

#25 Edited by blackace (21234 posts) -

Must have game. The fact that it will come with 3 other full games, plus the Halo series and Halo 5 beta is well worth it's price.

That's what I said before. Halo 5 will look superficially like that trailer graphically. Of course, it won't be identicle down to the exact quality of the CGI, but they will get close to the end user I imagine. And yes, 343 are very good.

You mean like Sony? lol!! How many of Sony's E3 trailers turned out to be not gameplay or downgraded severly. Some of their E3 CGI trailer games disappeared completely, never to be heard from again. Halo 5's gameplay will probably look better then that.

Funny, I'm about to start playing Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary.

#29 Posted by Vaasman (11686 posts) -

Uh, I hope the faces are fixed up by launch. These looked... really off. Damn good otherwise, but man that bothered me.

I wouldn't go that far. It'll look good, but not that good. We're still a decade off from those graphics on the most powerful PCs yet. You'll need to be able to run 4-8k resolutions and downscale to 1080p before you can get that kind of sharpness and quality.

You are the strangest 'manticore'. I'd rather you just stop lying. It isn't working.

Also, Halo 5 will not beat a pre rendered CGI on super computers lol. But It will look amazing tbh.

Thats why I said superficially. With many many corners cut in polygons etc. But the fundamental lighting in CGI is going to be used in all 8th gen games, and polygon counts in games are increasing a lot. So, to the end user, Halo 5 just might look somewhere in the realm of this trailer. While technically no where near it. That's all I'm saying. I'm not saying every hair strand will be simulated and several million polygon characters will be the norm in Halo 5, I'm simply saying it will blow minds.

It will destroy Killzone SF/Crysis 3 graphically. Thats how confident I am of it.

That's a step up compared to the ALL GREEN Xbox 360 design that was released several years back. Blech!!! I'd take this over that any day of the week.

"Destroying" what will be 4-year-old and 2-year-old games isn't much to brag about. A lot of upcoming games look much better than those already.

#36 Posted by freedomfreak (41918 posts) -

I'm digging this collection, and I'm not even big on Halo.

Halo 2 is the only Halo game I've never played. Wish Microsoft would bring it to 360, like H: Anniversary, so I could have all Halo games on one platform.

Except Halo Wars. I want to check that out, but peeps are like "noooo!"

to play the same games you've been 100000000003 times years ago. Yes need to spend $400 to play dat. Next generation is here. Jump In.

Yup, sure do. I play through the core Halo games at least once a year. Its gonna be great to have them all in one place, each with its original multiplayer.

You know how many people will disagree with you on this forum?

Some still think Crysis 3 on max 1080p is better graphics than what the next gen consoles will ever achieve.

I just have to clarify things that should seem obvious. If I had said Tomb Raider Legend on PC (6th gen cross gen game) was better graphics than Uncharted 1, I would have been laughed at. But now if you say Infamous, Ryse, or Killzone SF are better graphics than Crysis 3 ( 7th gen game), I'm an idiot all of a sudden.

Any way, TW3, Uncharted 4, The Order, Halo 5 (most likely), Batman AK, Star Citizen all look better than Crysis 3. And are far more advanced graphically.

CGI always looks good, not matter the developer. Lets see some in game footage! Buying regardless.

I can't wait to play me some Halo 2 in 1080p60... Glorious.

Really cool that they redid all the cutscenes.

That CGI looks phenomenal, though I always liked how Bungie used their engine for the cutscenes.

And for anyone who is curious...

I thought that it would likely be Halo 5 that got me interested in an Xbone but this makes buying one much more tempting, it's just an amazing package for a Halo fan.

Sort of like the Killzone 2 trailer?

The most unrepresentative trailer in the history of video games?
