Another broken triple AAA jumps on the 'free first DLC' bandwagon.

Well, it works out for us, doesn't it? I don't think they probably intended to have more H2A maps at least, though I could see a scenario where ODST was planned DLC.

How much will they charge for the Reach DLC?

For me, having all the Halo games on one box (at least in campaign form) is probably worth $10-20.

I dunno if Reach is intended to be DLC, though. I imagine compared to Halo 3 ODST the effort required would be much more substantial (also I think it'd be interesting that Reach might look the worst of all of them at 1080p60 due to the temporal motion blur, although I'm not sure how the frame rate would affect that.)

I honestly would pay to have Halo: Reach on my Xbone, so long as the price is reasonable (no more than $20, but that might even be pushing it).

Is it known at this point if Firefight will be included with ODST? If so, is there any word on Matchmaking?
Praise Bird Jesus!

No FF, which is a bit curious for me, just in that FF was running in ODST campaign same way as co-op and the regular mode, so it wouldn't seem to me to be as onerous to bring over.

  • No. There is more. But you are not worthy. Not yet
The only real reason I'm glad to have ODST is so that when I have people play the campaigns for the first time, they can play ODST before 3. That's always the way I've wanted to do it, and now it can be done easily from one console.

  • There has been much talk. And i have listened...
Also, ifImmabehonest; ODST is probably one of the best games in the whole series. At the very least its the most interesting from a design perspective; with the way that they merged the whole non-linear open overworld and the linear campaign mission structure.

I just realized I don't think I've ever played the flashbacks out of order, though.
