In Response To: Re: My Guess: (Jironimo)

: I agree with the person who said "cash grab" is a ridiculous term.

: By your standards which you've outlined above this is not a cash grab.

I think you misunderstood, maybe because I wasn't clear enough-- I didn't actually weigh in on whether this was a cash grab or not.

: 1. It is needed - potentially Halo 1 multiplayer, Halo 2 is no longer
: officially online, no core franchise titles on the xbox one

It's a video game, it's not needed (not even by Microsoft, who can make money in tons of other ways).

: 2. Really you don't think the Halo games are quality products or services?

I didn't say that, I said that's one of things people think of when they think of a cash grab.

: Assuming you mean they don't add value see #1, plus the guaranteed
: "remastered" graphics, and I would also point out that if you
: played Halo 2 Vista it is an even better experience with a higher frame
: rate, high resolution, better anti-aliasing, no pop-in, etc which should
: translate to the same on a more powerful console like the xbone. Ditto
: Halo 1, 3, and 4.

I think Halo 2 deserves better graphical performance (and more detailed textures) than it got on the original Xbox; I don't really care about any other graphical tweaks, improvements, or changes.

: 3. Halo 2 Anniversary has been expected for years at this point.

by some people, yes

: 4. Halo 2 Anniversary with multiplayer is wanted, it's been clear by the fans
: since the first Anniversary title came out.

by some people, yes
