Halo: Combat Evolved on XBLM?

The April issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly has yet another Halo rumor to report (p. 67):

In last issue's Rumor Mill, I mentioned that Xbox 360 owners will soon be able to buy full Xbox 1 games via Microsoft's Xbox Live Marketplace. And now I've got the juicy scoop on the first game that Bill Gates' crew will make available. Look for Bungie's epic first-person shooter Halo on the Marketplace sometime before this summer. I only hope the developer makes this version's multiplayer mode Xbox Live compatible."

Not a bad way to fill up a couple gigs worth of HD space and sort of believable given Sony and Nintendo's plans to release old games online. How many people think this will come to pass? If they can can make Halo available via XBLM, why not Halo 3?

That's a lot of room to be taken up on the HD.

Also it says BUY. There is no way that I'm going to buy Halo 1 or any other last gen game that I own and SHOULD be backward compatible. Not when it's sitting here next to my Xbox.

The whole appeal to the Revo downloadable games to me is that the games are from NES, SNES and N64. Things that would be a bitch to have hooked up to one TV and play. Now we're talking downloadable last gen games. I just played these. I want my old school.
