    This feels like buying the same game three times.
    I already own Reach. I already own MCC.
    Owners of Reach should at least get a discount for this "premium digital add-on".
    Also, where the #@&% is mouse/keyboard support for these games? MS made such a big stink about adding the feature to Xbox. Now they've got PC versions of the games which will undoubtedly have m/kb built-in. So why not add m/kb support for the single player campaigns on Xbox?

    Reach was never part of MCC. You knew that when you bought it.
    People pay for remasters all the time, which this will be.

    As long as it's appropriately priced I'm not sure your complaints are warrented.

    Is reach BC? If not then that would be answer to your complaint I suppose.

    Yes. Reach is BC and its performance has been improved


    But not enhanced fo the X like Halo 3.

    reach really is my favourite halo. This one brings back more memories than the others. Are they planning to X1X enhance it?

    heh
    Their issues with FOV adjustments are curious, although I had to wonder if Bungie just worked within the limits for 2 player-splitscreen. Gonna need @HTupolev's FOV info. :p

    Is it really too much to ask for some crazy ultra wide ala CE's 2p-splitscreen. I don't know if it could just mean tweaking the size of the view-weapons or shifting their screen-space position to get around the clipping problem. I forget.


    xD

    This is super out of left field and nothing to do with mcc specifically...but has anyone played the og xbox version of halo 1 on 360? Asking because i dislike anniversary and want to play the original on 360 but i dont know how the emulation is

    Once upon a time I had played H:CE on X360 but that was early on like the first year or two of owning the console and before I could tell any differences in the games. You can play HCE:A and toggle the graphics to be the same as the original? Or was that only on H:MCC? Or do you dislike the audio and other subtle differences that HCE:A has?

    I think they claim to have pretty much eliminated those sort of differences with their ongoing changes to H:MCC. But I wouldn't be able to tell, not being the finely tuned Halo warrior.

    Sound changes, lots of graphical bugs carried over from the old pc port, halo reach online multiplayer instead of the original multiplayer ect. The older graphics option is nice but ultimately feels like an afterthought. I dont think they will be patching the 360 ver anytime soon either lol, but thats all i got. As long as i can confirm playing the og on 360 doesnt have any bad emulation bugs in it, ill rebuy it and get rid of my anniversary edition which i hate looking at

    Halo 1 anniversary i thought was a very mediocre effort. Which is ironic since i think halo 2 anniversary is one of the greatest remastering efforts of all time..really elevated halo 2 in general for me. I only played it once over a friends house years ago(as i never have owned an xb1) but i still distinctly remember how impressed i was at the conversion after clearing the campaign in co op. The highlight of MCC for me. The other games are just kinda there

    Emulation was mostly okay AFAICR - the biggest problem was a bug related to ghosting of scene geometry, but I don't remember it happening too often. The nice thing was that the game got 4xMSAA.

    It wasn't perfect I don't think.

    Speaking of which, there was an update for H:MCC on the Xbox today. First one I've noticed in a while.
