In Response To: The New Xbox 1 Theater Mode and Halo (GunHunter)

: Hi everyone, been here since Halo CE but never had a question for the
: comunity to ponder.
: As most of you will know, the new Xbox One has a built in game video
: recorder. Will this be the end of Halo Theater Mode? I dont think there
: will be as much or any control over the camera. That was one of the best
: features Bungi ever incorperated for the comunity. It allowed for the best
: game videos, and countless hours of exploration.

: Just saying.......

Just the start of weening us off luxurious features like game films :P

Just kidding. I'm sure it will continue to be supported as a debugging tool internally at the very least (which bodes well for players). They'll surely fall back on the One's recording features should films not be feasible in the next Halo FPS game's production time frame. Depending on who you ask, they traded lush campaign spaces for being able to replay PvE games (though I can't recall an official explanation ever being given). Who knows what other ideas they have for the engine and game that will have similar cutting board decisions, all in the name of progress.

The addition of dedicated servers is also interesting in regards to the films feature set. I wonder if players/clients will be able to request films as they were on the server after a game finishes (since a client can have a seemingly abnormal view of the simulation due to lag, etc)
