Perfect Dark
Microsoft Game Studios Not Considering Any HD Remakes
Written By
View author's profile

With Sony churning out HD remakes of some of its best PS2 games - God of War, Sly Cooper, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus to name a few - and doing pretty well out of them too, it's perhaps surprising that Microsoft hasn't followed suit and applied the high-definition gloss to its own stable of classic Xbox titles.

The truth is that Microsoft Game Studios just isn't that interested in HD remakes, so you can cast aside those dreams of playing a remastered Halo: Combat Evolved, Blinx or even Conker, as it's not on the cards for the company, and indeed there are no plans to release any HD remakes any time soon.

Microsoft's Phil Spencer explains that the studio just has too much going on to even consider HD remakes at present. "We obviously have a lot of new things going on," he told IGN, "so the thought of re-doing a bunch of things is probably difficult to just weave into the overall portfolio."

However, it's not something that's off the table entirely, and Spencer openly acknowledges that HD remakes might be a good proposition, although he questions their value. "I don't think it's necessarily a bad idea," he said. "I'm going to think about it from the customer's perspective, and are we really delivering something of value to the customer at a price that they want?"

We know that an HD remake of the first two Halo titles would sell like hotcakes, but for now it looks like Perfect Dark might have been a one-off.

Well they sort of did a hd'ish remake of halo:2 for the pc with achievements which was cool, but they would make so much money by doing this for the 360!

It is the achievements that sell these games, not the fact they are high definition remakes. Surely the execs realise this? There is so much money to be made off of re-releasing classics with achievements.

I agree, it's a shame San Andreas never made it to the 360 (Bully did). They wouldn't have to rework the graphics a lot, just take the textures from the PC version and render it in 720p with nice AA. It's probably too late now, but I'd sure as hell pay full price for it, even though I own the PC version.

Still, San Andreas is a Rockstar game, so Microsoft had nothing to do with it. Rockstar probably have their hands full anyway.

Microsoft are being run by a bunch of imbeciles, they're going to spend half a billion pushing that horrible Kinect device but can't even give the fans an HD remake of Halo 1 and 2, what a joke.

And lets not forget their dumb decision to stick with dvd when Blu Ray was the future.

Real fans already got Halo 1-2 standing in the shelfs and dont need achievements to pick em out to play. Im fucking glad they dont release them in flashy hd graphics and with with achievements, if you want to play halo games for achievements = fuck off you are not a fan

#12 I still own both Halo's and even the original xbox, so don't start trying to judge me as not a real fan just because I don't agree with morons who run Microsoft at the moment.

This is a company who took one of the best developers out there in Rare and used them to create avatars.

It's a horrible business decision to not even give their premier title an HD remake.

Wow bad move from microsoft.

A HD Halo CE and 2 with working online multiplayer would sell so hard.

Same with some other games I think, KoTOR 1 and 2, Jade Empire, conker, Battlefield 1 and 2 and many others, should at least release them for XBLA or GFWL or something.

Also, Serious Sam on XBLA, umm yea?

@11, you obviously have no idea what you're talking about. M$ will NEVER go to BluRay on Xbox. You realize that BluRay is Sony technology right? M$ would NEVER pay Sony royalties for every single console they sold with a BluRay player in it, plain and simple.

Eh, I've played them before. I doubt I'll love them anymore in HD and with a $60.00 price tag on them. I think Sony is desperate for new games so they've got the time to remake old games in HD. There's so many new games on Xbox 360 I'll never be able to play them all much less replay old games in HD.

A HD Halo CE probably is in the works but they are keeping it for an anniversery surprise next year.

Personally i'd like to see the first two Halos on the Reach engine perhaps in a similiar package to ODST with a Reach complete multiplayer experience disc included.

They wouldnt make halo 1 multiplayer online, they could reopen a 360 version of halo 2 online though if they were to remake it.

but seriously, apart from @22, everyone seems fussed about gta and halo...conker anyone? KotOR series? Black? probably will not happen. Would cost more to remake it. Always thought it was pointless to have xbox originals on the marketplace but they do not have achievements...weird move.

Conker and Black were the only ones I cared about... well, those and Fatal Frame. Yea, I got the first 2 on Xbox disk, but... they just don't play right on the 360.

Anyone play the Demand version of Black? Does it play better than the disk version?

If they did remake them, they certainly wouldn't be value for money; but Halo fans will buy anything, so they could charge something stupid for it and Microsoft would still make enough money to carry on sipping cocktails in their private yachts surrounded by expensive hookers for the next couple of years. Well, they've always got Kinect for that kind of thing, haven't they?

This works a lot better for Sony just simply because there are games on the PS2 that were instant classics. I can't think of a single Xbox game I'd really pay $40 for a remake of.

I'd say that with most of the possible best selling HD titles that they could release, they'd easily surpass the 2GB limitation for Xbox Live arcade. What else could they release them as? A Game on Demand? I just wouldn't be THAT interested but it'd be worth a shot at least to redo one of the Halo titles in HD just to see how it does, with achievements of course! :)

So in other word what he's trying to say is "We will have to look closely if we will get our money's worth and then some before we commit to this, because we are a fucking money hungry large as a world enterprise that just never has enough. If we decide that we will make more money of brand new IP's, which has worked so far, then obviously we won't bother with making HD remakes". Amen, MR. Spencer^^

We certainly don't need HD remakes of insanely popular games. That's virtually redundant. HD remakes should only be made for high-quality, under-appreciated titles, the upcoming remake of Beyond Good & Evil being a good example.

MicroSoft, you cash whore, you get all of this money from us, making us pay $400 for stuff that should've already be included in the origonal product, then turn around and boot us off of any excitement. Sony does a way better job that them, The God of War Collection was pure amazement. I REALLY want a Oblivion 3 make-over in HD, but MicroSoft will continue to milk us then shove grenades up our utters.

Like others have said, they don't want to waste our time and money with HD remakes of insanely popular original Xbox games (like Halo 1&2, KOTOR 1&2, Star Wars: Battlefront 1&2) but they think that Kinect is worth our money? Does anyone actually care about Kinect?

@ 38 - Well mainly b/c I wasn't heavy on LAN gaming back then except for some Duke Nuke'em 3D and C&C:Red Alert with a buddy. Halo 2 just never dug me in and I also blame 3 for not liking it. H2 had that nice buildup towards the end that had you on edge that H3 would start with a badass battle - there wasn't anything close to it throughout the whole game. I know I gave up halfway thru H2 and didn't jump back to finish until AFTER H3. Either way, it was a great run and I wish if anything they'd make another Halo Wars. Too bad Ensemble closed down though. I doubt I'd trust it in any other devs hands.

@ 56 - Controller evolution is bound to happen and motion controls seem to be the big draw. However, people are way too attatched to Controller Gaming that I doubt it's going to take over standard controllers. I was getting pissed at Square for teasing about a FF7 remake which probably never will happen. I'd like to see certain games remade but then again, I'm one of those hated that wants Star Wars eps 4-6 redone just to fit the CGI scale. It's a beating watching the first three and then taking a visual 20 year step back. Love the franchise, hate the peripheral gap. Just personal preference tho.

Who ever said that Microsoft is only interested in money was obviously wrong. If they where then they would make a remake of Halo & Halo 2.

But anyways i find it a bit disappointing, if there would come out a HD/x360 Remake of Halo 1 & 2 i would deffinitly buy them!! If they included achievements ofcourse. If sold on a disc through the gamestore's i would even pre-order it!!

I am fine with this myself, Sure it would be nice to see HD remakes of some of the classics like Halo, but what is the point if they'll take away from new games, I have them on my shelf anyway. However Microsoft you should at least think about putting Conkers Bad Fur Day onto the XBL Marketplace like you did with Banjo-Kazooie, Banjo-Tooie, and Perfect Dark, and it better be the un-censored N64 version, and not the Live and Reloaded remake that cut out EVERYTHING that made the game funny...the Great Mighty Poo just wasn't the same with fart sounds replacing the word Shit.

1.Halo:CE with achievements :)
2.Halo 2 with achievements :)
3.Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic with achievements
4.Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 2 with achievements

i mean honestly they could do that in two games and just combine halo 1 and 2 and KoTOR 1 and 2 like ps3 did with god of war 1 and 2

"The "Blu-ray Disc founder group" was started on May 20, 2002 by nine leading electronic companies: Sony, Panasonic, Pioneer, Philips, Thomson, LG (Lucky GoldStar) Electronics, Hitachi, Sharp, and Samsung"

Blu-Ray is not only Sony's tech because they used it in their PS3 and recently Microsoft was invited to join the Blu-Ray group but i don't know if they accepted or not.

I'm honestly surprised, and kinda disappointed. xD I never got a chance to play Halo 1/2 so I definitely would've gotten any remakes.

Oh well, guess I'll have to grab it off the marketplace or something.

There's not even a reason to have these in HD, the games are all too new, already run on 360, and already look just fine in 480p, remakes would be a giant waste. Sony's remakes are just a giant marketing technique to get people hyped up to buy a new game, and especially since there aren't going to be any more Halo games, that's a huge waste on that front. And the HD remakes of PS2 games honestly don't even look that much better, since PS2 games looked way worse than most xbox games. The whole thing would just be a huge waste, but everyone thinks it would be cool just because they like Halo

Honestly this really isnt needed IMO. Sony is doing it because it doesnt have the onslaught on games the 360 does. There's over 1,000 games out for the 360 (XNA indie 's included) While I might enjoy a few remakes from yesteryear.. Unreal Championship, Halo... I'm more looking forward to innovations and new games...

Wow, 2 wins in a row for Sony. Microsoft thinks real gamers will buy Kinect? At least Move uses an actual controller. No HD remakes? GoW 1 & 2 in HD sold millions, meaning Microsoft wants to lose untold billions.

Seriously, HD-ify:

Halo 2
KotOR 2
Jade Empire
Jet Set Radio Future

@ 77 - Yeah GoW2 sold millions b/c they were DEVELOPED in HD. These games would have to be redone and reformatted much like they did with Star Wars' Gold Editions in the late 90's.
That kinda thing costs money pally. I sincerely doubt people would plunk down retail prices for games they played less than 10 years ago. I wouldn't even though I would love to see them. The issue is that for most people, even with nostalgia - stuff feels dated. I try to go back and play games from Nintendo/Genesis and even PS1 and it just doesn't hold the test of time. There's too much being released nowadays especially in the past 5 years. Sequels and new IP's are coming out within a year of previous titles. Making HD remakes would honestly be more of a waste than profit.

@ 79 - Awesome doesn't account for storyline. The whole point of playing this was knowing these Spartans were as good as dog meat. Even as an alternate whatever - it wouldn't be good IMO. Plus you get to see Master Chief at the end of Reach in his pod if you look right.

Microsoft needs to get permission from Nintendo to release Pokemon games on XBLA. With online battling, THOSE would sell like hotcakes. I know it will never happen, but still.

I think its good news. They should concentrate on making new original games rather than churning out sequels or HD remakes of the same old crap. Theyve made enough samey Halo games already we dont fuckin want anymore.

"I'm going to think about it from the customer's perspective, and are we really delivering something of value to the customer at a price that they want?" Soo Kinect was something that we want and feel is fairly priced?

@ 86 - I'm never always right. I just offer an opinion, usually researched so I don't just post random babble like I usually see just filled with hate or ridiculous insults. I do admit to posting a lot but A) its on articles about games I played or will play. I don't go in like the DJ Hero thread and start slamming it for no reason. B) I tend to respond. Not comment. Most of the posters just leave their post and move on. I like feedback and completing a debate/conversation. I tend to get morons who can't find a decent response and call me names and wish disease on me. If you can't continue to contribute, don't comment at all is what I say. Check out what some goober left on my profile page b/c he came off like a complete jacktard in one thread. Then I could swear he wanted an apology but it looked like it was posted by a retarded circus monkey.

are they crazy? all of these 'games on demand' titles are a f_king rip off £20 and the money grabbing biatches arent redoing classics like these? They would rake the money in on Halo CB and Halo 2
also jet set radio would be sick in HD

@93 I wouldn't be suprised if SEGA announce JSR as a Dreamcast re-make for XBLA.

Back on topic, I am not sure whether I would be a fan of the HD re-makes of X-box games. Sure it would make money but I would rather see Microsoft Games Studios bringing out new more exciting products (not that games on the X-box weren't exciting).

I think the story is totally BS.Of course they are goin to re-make Halo1 and 2.Do you guys actually think they are going to spoil their big project to us now? We wont see Halo 4 for 2-3 years so I can see some announcement regarding HD Halo1,2 and E3 for for a Fall 2012 release.

Very. Stupid. Decision!

The number of Halo fans has been growing exponentially since the release of Halo: Combat Evolved. If you see how many copies of Halo: Reach has been sold, you could that number multiply times 2 or 3 just by remaking these games, not only HD but also 3D as I believe this is and will be future gaming. And I'm not talking about these 2-coloured stupid paper glasses. The prices of stereoscopic 3D televisions will drop with time, and that's what gaming industry should play into. James Cameron's Avatar was the first step, maybe a little too soon though. If I'm right, and PS3 actually IS 3D Ready, microsoft might be vulnerable to market loss.

Just my 2 cents.

@75 I agree with you, wait another 3-5 years and then once demand is even higher than it is now and system capabilities have increased then maybe we'll see an HD Halo remake. I would love to have it now but I'll gladly wait because then if it ever does happen then it'll only be that much better. When it does it'd better support live though, that's what most everyone wants. For now, I'd love to see at least one free map from Bungie for Halo: Reach, call it a Christmas present to the Halo Community. Just a wish...

I think M$ dont wanna make HD remakes because most xbox 360 players are Call of Duty fanboys.

But i would LOVE to see some Oddworld games Hd-ified.

@90, I've read some threads/posts in which people can't handle your sophisticated responses and just wish you dead or better yet, call you a dick head. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! We need someone on these forums to stick it to the trolls and just those people who think calling some one a dick, or just none stop swearing makes them cool. Thanks : )

OT: I can't really see too many games going HD, Halo: CE and Halo 2, would be nice and KOTOR, would also be nice. But honestly theres not too many games I care about, though if they can make HD versions of games such as Pokemon, then I would be interested.

i think that is stupid due to the audience a remake of both halo 1 & 2 initially received, millions of people would pf loved to revisit the story, and with reach finishing with the start of Halo 1 it would have been the ideal time for that step as it is in everyones minds

that really pissed me off actually :(

@ 107 - Believe me I AGREE! The only problem is the only thing that will work is administrative action. I'm not a site mod so all I can do is offer my opinion and at least point a way. Some buddies were originally on and after that place fell apart do to massive troll incursion, we formed our own site where WE are the mods. It's basically our own little online clubhouse but it's run smoothly. We're pretty blunt and in your face to newcomers but it's just our brand or humor however we are very welcoming and informative as well. I won't blurt it here since I'm not a shameless promoter and I know what it's like for someone to come in and be all "Come to our website! It's better!". Ours isn't but it's tightly run. Forums are going to be abused unless they're patrolled moderately which rarely happens on a large community site.

Microsoft, let Rare make Bad Fur Day on XBLA and Other Bad Day for Xbox 360.
Same with Jet Force Gemini, I want it on XBLA and a sequel on Xbox 360.
