Bungie Says Yes To Halo, Halo2 On 360

Bungie Confirms Halo, Halo 2 on X360 They're not only compatible, but they run in 720p, too. Bungie's official site today revealed what any even half-intelligent Xbox gamer would have guessed: Halo and Halo 2 will run correctly on the Xbox 360. The better news, however, is that not only does Halo 2's Xbox Live functionality transfer intact, but both games on the X360 can render at widescreen, at 720p, with full-screen anti-aliasing. "To clarify, the 'new' version of Halo or Halo 2 is simply the disk you have already. Pop it into your 360 and it'll load up just like before. You will have to log into Xbox Live to enable Halo 2's online functions, but both games will work immediately. "But here's another bonus - the hardware in the 360 can do a lot of nifty stuff, and specifically in the cases of Halo and Halo 2, it can display the graphics in wide screen, at 720p, with full scene anti-aliasing. And it doesn't look kludgy, artifacty or smeary like an upscanning DVD player. The best way to describe it is that both games look like they're running on a PC at those resolutions." Previous Microsoft sell-sheets confirmed months ago that Halo 2 was backward compatible on Xbox 360. It's also a no-brainer that Halo would be backward compatible. But at 720 with full anti-aliasing? Nice. Cheers goes out to Bungie for saying what we already know.
