In Response To: In retrospect (FyreWulff)

: This is just a "what if" observation, but you wonder if BC had been
: a thing at the Xbox One's launch, you think the MCC would have just been
: the Halo 2 remake + keys for CE:A, H3, and H4? Would be interesting to see
: what that would have been like for people.

: It's pretty much what they did with Gears, btw. The Gears 1 remake was also a
: stealth Marcus Fenix Collection because it also gave you all the 360 Gears
: titles with the purchase (it was technically limited time offer, but the
: window was huge), but that also benefitted from being released -after- the
: BC program was a thing and launched.

: And technically Rare Replay, which launched the 360 BC, would have been
: MCC-like in having all the games ported instead of all the 360 titles
: being digital BC downloads.

We wouldn't have gotten 1080p60 versions of the campaigns, though. Despite MCC's problems that and H2A alone were well worth the $60 I paid for.

Mostly the nice thing about this for me is the LAN capability and ODST FF, but I guess for 3 and Reach holdouts it's nice to be able to keep playing the classic lists on your modern hardware.

Unless they mandate downloading the DLC though I don't imagine you'll see the DLC maps that much more, though.
