Halo Legends Series on Blu-ray
Posted by XanTium | October 2 21:31 EST | News Category: Xbox360
 
From cnet.com:


Microsoft plans on releasing a seven-part series spanning from its origins to the game's third installment, titled Halo Legends.

The series will be available for download via Xbox Live this fall. According to Blu-ray.com we can expect to see this on Blu-ray sometime in 2010, so there will finally be a disc labeled Halo that will play on the PS3 for all the Halo fans.

However, since the Xbox 360 doesn't support Blu-ray, it makes you wonder if Blu-ray is in the 360's future? Or maybe the next-gen Xbox?

next gen for sure. the movie is coming out in bluray because hd-dvd is dead, and regular dvd is on its way out, and they want more sales.

there won't be a bluray addon for the 360. not today, not tomorrow

I doubt there will be a bluray addon for 360, but definately next gen, the way developers are saying DVD9 is too small for textures etc, It would be illogical for them to not implement a next gen technology into a next gen console, HDDVD is dead, microsoft know this, and the only way they'll keep up with a PS4 is to AT LEAST have what sony had in their previous gen console.. They'd be stupid not to.. Short of reviving HD-DVD totally for games, like a propietry disc (UMD?)

I thought it was pretty cool and a lot of time playing on legendary on Halo 1 and 2 it was pretty difficult to keep up, maybe because it was y first time on a FPS.

and of course the next xbox will have BlueRay

I was a big halo fan. 1,2 and 3 were great. But I am getting sick of the franchise. I did not even buy ODST. PS3 might have more games, but at least they are a bit different. We seem to get the same stuff over and over. And as far as the post goes, I am sick of the xbox blueray rumors.

I'm sorry but Microsoft isn't the only one regurgitating IPs. Don't forget MS is pushing new IPs as well, just like Sony.

It will happen in time. Probably once the economy starts gaining momentum again. I am seeing less and less TVs around that aren't HD. All technology eventually becomes dated. I remember thinking to myself that they will never stop making VHS tapes... and guess what happened! I think the only thing really holding back blu-ray now is the price.

I would say old more then over-rated in terms of gameplay, but the story is FANTASTIC and that is exactly what this series is going to be. I just wish it was new stuff and not the Halo 1-3 story all over again. Hopefully they keep it fresh by adding stuff in we haven't really seen before.

You can't be THAT sick of the rumors seeing as how you still don't spell blu-ray right. I remember how to spell it by saying to myself that it is one letter away from blurry.

Using an abandoned disc format would be a good way of combatting piracy, as long as they use features of the HD DVD format that can't easily be replicated by Blu-Ray.
