Well, well, well from Kotaku (http://www.kotaku.com.au/2009/08/bungie-ponders-remaking-the-first-two-halos/). Bungie considers revamping Halo 2 and Halo Combat Evolved for the Xbox 360. It was only a couple of days ago Halo 2 was discovered to be the real reason why your Friend's List on Xbox Live is limited to a hundred...


If Bungie are serious, then revamping could finally mean a set of achievements for these two titles. Shiznit, with Halo ODST and Halo Reach coming soon, I can't really see this happening for a while unless of course Bungie does not care about market saturation of Halo. Updating Halo 2 would also be Microsoft's perfect justification to increase the Friend's List which is "hindered' by Halo 2's Live Community according to G4. (http://g4tv.com/thefeed/blog/post/698157/The-Real-Reason-You-Cant-Have-More-Than-100-Xbox-Live-Friends----Halo-2.html) I personally would love to play these titles for achievements and have 1500 friends on my list while doing so.

got this off another xbox site this would be so cool. what do you think

I have less interest in playing through these games again, BUT [and it's a big but], if they reworked them and added achievements to both, then I might be inclined to give them another play through. Ten bucks says they just put them as HD versions on the marketplace with no enhancements what-so-ever.

I've never played Halo 1 or 2. Well a little bit at a friends house, but not a whole lot. I'd rather they make a whole new game though.

Agreed, and I think Bungie does as well. I'm pretty sure I read in one of Bungie's weekly updates that anything beyond ODST and Reach are pretty much up to MS from here on when it comes to the Halo ip, they're done with it.

With that being said, I wouldn't mind picking up Halo 2 mp again, and I'd be ok with playing through both of the campaigns again for the hell of it and for the achievements.

Even a tiny touch up to the games would probably get me to buy them. I'd love to have achieves on the first 2 games (although technically I already have achievements for Halo 2) and ONLINE IN HALO 1. I'd probably get right back into Halo 2 online too, since I hate Halo 3.

Dear god NO. We do not need re-makes of these games. I'd like to get achievements for them as much as the next guy, but LET HALO DIE ALREADY.

oh God NOOOOO!!!
no more halo!

although the first one was the only one I liked...so maybe that one but 2 and 3 can go set itself on fire

No, they shouldn't, I'd rather they make a new game.

Though if they must, I'd only be interested in a Halo 1 Remake.

Ahh right...

So by, "That's the Halo games done after Reach", they meant, "We're just gonna go back and do up the older ones that you can play on 360 from the Xbox disc you already have".

If they added xbox live to halo 1 then I'd definitely buy it. Not so sure about Halo 2, but there's nothing wrong with remaking them.

god..... YES I love Halo2. My friends and I have spent many afternoons and latenights playing on turf. I Would buy Halo2 without a second thought. I wouldn't even care if it would cost 60 bucks.

I probably would go through them again with achievements. I have the original Halo but my disc is very fucked, so it doesn't work, and Halo 2 is very slow on my 360, but still works. I sometimes play multiplayer with my friends, as I prefer Halo 2 multiplayer over Halo 3 (especially for swords, none of that "tie" bullshit).

If this is true, it's absolutely fantastic news, some good times were had on Halo 1 and 2 all those years ago, and some HD remakes would be first-day purchases for me without a doubt.

Nobodies forcing you to buy it, and I think it would be a fine way to finish their run through with the Halo series.

I hate Halo tbf. But I'm all for it. The more games that are released means the more gamerscore that's eventually attainable. Go for it Bungie. :woop:

Like all these Guitar Hero spin offs and Rockband addons, I'm not complaining at all, yet some people are... Grow up. If you don't want it, don't buy it. Simple as that.

This Would Be Absolutely Amazing... Infact Me & Some Friends Were Talkin About This The Other Day As Well As Adjusting San Andreas With New Achievements, Online Co-Op, And Allowing People To Stay In Party Chart Would Be Great.

Halo 1 Is Great And Acheivements Would Give You That Exscuse To Go Play Through It Again.

Halo 2 Had My Least Fav Campaign From The Series But Anyone Who Was There Will Agree That;

Oh, and no I don't agree that Halo 2 has the worst campaign, and yes I was there.

Hey Veteran, He Doesn't Realise What's He Is Doing Eventhough You Told Him What He Is Doing. :p


Plus this doesn't mean that Bungie are doing it. We could get some new people on the job. I'd even like a port of Halo 2 on the 360.

an xbox live capable halo 1 would be a dream come true to me. i still play XBC time to time to this day. greatest MP game ever IMO, and it was my fav campaign of the series.

halo 2 i would play strictly for the achievements. the campaign just isn't interesting and the MP is too aggravating to play. still better then halo 3 though.

I agree, halo 1 on xbox360 would be a dream. i'm still quite partial to halo CE i play it on the pc all the time and with more achivements thats another easy 1000 G

they should definetly revamp halo 2. they should have made clans available to make in halo 3, but they didnt which was one of halo 3's biggest downfalls. it would bring more competition, experience, and fun to the game. Acheivements too, of course.

Those who want a "revamped" halo 2 can play it on Vista... graphics are a bit better then the original and it has achievements...

Aside from that I hope they leave the games alone

While I do like the Halo games ....own all of them. Played the shizznit out of Halo 2 when I had a solid core of 10 buddies on every night...But like someone else said..Bungie should move on with new games, and not waste time and money on old games.

I could maybe see a patch/update to fix the friends list limit, but really 100 spots are enough.

Of course it does. PC's monitors are the same resolutions/if not higher than HDTVs. I run Halo 2 PC @ 1440x900 resolution, which is a lot greater than 720p resolution.

Remake them both! I would love to be able to play the first Halo on XBL since XBC really really lags!!

Add achievements and I am sold on it :)

That's not a true HD picture though is it? 16:9 is a true HD ratio... but what I was getting at with the question was whether Vista's version of Halo 2 has a native resolution of 1920x1080?

I'd re- buy them if they have achievements.

But I really want to see what else Bungie has up their sleeves. I want to see them start a new franchise. (I still love Halo)
