  1. Backwards Compatibility on Xbox One has been received with praise since Microsoft dropped the bomb at E3 a week ago. Plenty of details rolled out post-E3, but a few continued to be elusive: Multi-Disc, DLC, and Kinect support... until now that is. Phil Spencer sat down with Giant Bomb on their E3 Podcast not that long ago to talk about how Backwards Compatibility works, and clear confusion on some of what it can & can't support. He went on to say that multi-disc 360 games, like Wolfenstein: The New Order or Dead Space 3, are currently in development, and are being looked into. He said specifically, "We're still working on multi-disc. Lost Odyssey, and Blue Dragon are some of my favorites from the 360. There's actually work in packing a multi-disc into single that requires us to go back and look at the original package on the multiple discs and reconfigure that. There weren't allot of multi-discs on 360, but that is an issue for us." He also made a brief comment regarding Kinect: noting that 360 Kinect games will not work on Xbox One, "There's some caveats, and as always I like to be as transparent as I can be on this: Kinect games won't work from the 360, because translating between the Kinect sensors is almost impossible." Lastly, Xbox Support on Twitter confirmed that disc-based & digital 360 DLC will be supported, and can be transferred to Xbox One via the Backwards Compat. system. However, the availability of the DLC depends on whether or not the Developer or Publisher approves it. For example, if a company like ZeniMax were to allow it's consumers to port it's 360 DLC to the One, content such as Dawnguard from Skyrim & Mothership Zeta from Fallout 3 will be playable with no strings attached (the content still needs to be tested beforehand, like Phil Spencer said in the podcast above), and possibly all DLC from the GOTY and special editions of said games will be utilized as well. Again, this still depends on the content-holders giving the green-light. Backwards Compatibility will be available to everyone later this year, and supposedly will launch with around 100 supported titles, and hundreds more every month. Those who are in the Xbox One Preview Program can test the system's current titles right now, like Perfect Dark Zero, Super Meat Boy, and Battleblock Theater. Xbox additionally has a public vote on which games will be approved. You can go to the Xbox Feedback forums here to cast your vote on a game you would like to see on Xbox One. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Halo 5: Guardians has plenty of pre-order bonuses that are acquired from different retailers, such as Agent Locke's HUNTER armor from Gamestop & GAME, the Projection SMG from Amazon, and a loadout weapon & skin from Xbox Live. The incentives to buy the game from all these retailers makes the content too exclusive for any one person to get unless you want to go through a large amount of hassle. It makes the choice & lack of choice of place to preorder all the more difficult. Relieving the pressure on fan's shoulders, Josh Holmes of 343 Industries made a quick response to a user on Twitter regarding availability of the preorder content. He confirmed that all preorder content can be unlocked in the base game regardless of who you bought the game from, and that the preorder itself just "- guarantees you have it out of box.". So earning something like the Sentinel Battle Rifle from Gamestop will require work in-game to get, but you'll still have a guarantee of the content being unlockable. Thanks for reading!

  3. I was playing matchmaking and I noticed once that someone had a Arctic Battle Rifle Skin in Halo 4 and in Halo 3 matchmaking everyone on my team, at least had a Flaming Red Helmet. Is this a hack, or can you get this legitimately?
  4. Heres my ideas: Preorder Specials: Golden hog (turns all hogs in the game gold) and bandanna (Infinite) skull.
  5. What do you guys and girls think should be in the game as a pre order bonus, in my opinion, you should get the same thing for any store you buy the game at to prevent future regret about not going to a certain store for that special thing....... Back to my point, halo 2 anniversary needs something cool as a bonus or for bonuses... My idea is maybe a code that can be used to turn every warthog in campaign to the golden warthog and make it indestructible. I don't know if that's a good idea or not, let me know what you'd want in the posting area below. Thanks
  6. Hey. I preordered Halo 4 Limited Edition, and got all my customization and armor, but I didn't get the Hazop Forest Skin. I preordered from Gamestop, but didn't get a code on my receipt or in the box. I was wondering if the Hazop Forest was only for regular edition of Halo 4.
  7. i got the LE of halo andmy brother used the codes on his profile and i did not get anything. no skin no emblem no specilizations. he got all the content but i got nothing. can this be changed or has 343 changed how bungie delt with content.
  8. I want to collect all the Halo 4 pre-order and limited edition armor. If anybody is generous (which you probably aren't) enough could you possible pm me a code when the game is released. If possible I might offer you a trade. Currently I am pre-ordering from Gamestop and want to get the Limited Edition Fotus armor as well. Thank you!
  9. Yes, I already know a hundred threads have been made for listing Halo 4 pre-order unlocks, but few (not even from THIS forum!) would tell me what stores offered what unlocks, or the price of their pre-order. I'll do my best to match unlocks with stores and provide images, etc. etc. If you know of another store offering a pre-order package or want to correct me (which I often need to be), just PM me, I usually check the forums daily. By the way, I will only provide inks to images to preserve forum space and retain fair load time for my crappy satellite internet service :wallbash: First, I would like to dish out the store offering the most add-ons, but at the largest price tag - MightyApe. This New Zealand distributor is offering the largest amount pre-order extras, shown HERE, including Raptor and Pulse armor skins, the flippin' awesome Locus helmet (exclusive to MightyApe), and two emblems. This may appear to be the best deal, but if you ain't in New Zealand for the release, you're paying almost $20 for ground rate shipping. It's a little ridiculous, but if it's any consolation, I pre-ordered here, too. The price may drop, and I hope like hell it does. BTW, $130NZD ~ $100USD, so the price isn't actually $30 more. Halo 4 Standard - $88.49NZD + $16.00 shipping Halo 4 Limited Edition - $129.99NZD + $16.00 shipping Probably the most popular Halo 4 pre-orderers (if that is a word) are GameStop & EB Games. Available with both packages is the Gamestop/EB Games exclusive Forest skin, shown HERE. Because GameStop and EB are pretty much the exact same store, you're getting the exact same thing. Rumor has it that EB Games is also offering the Arctic weapon skin in Canada. I believe both stores offer free ground shipping and expensive release date shipping (feel free to correct me), but you can have shipped to a nearby store for free or pre-order at the store. Halo 4 Standard - $59.99 Halo 4 Limited Edition - $99.99 Another great store for pre-ordering any game online is Amazon. Amazon's offer is the interesting Web armor skin, shown HERE. Amazon is also a seller for multiple online stores if you want to look into who's all selling Halo 4 on their store. I know Amazon offers free ground shipping but I do not know their fastest shipping speed or the price of that speed at the moment. Amazon would be my personal alternative to MightyApe. Halo 4 Standard & LE - $59.99 & $99.99 Like MightyApe, Best Buy is offering the Dead Space-esque Raptor armor skin, shown HERE. Best Buy offers free ground shipping for those who pre-ordered online, they can ship it to a local store for free, and you can pre-order it at the store itself with a down payment. Also, pre-ordering here gets you 15% off a game guide if you want one. Halo 4 Standard - $59.99 Halo 4 Limited Edition - $99.99 Walmart is currently offering the Circuit armor skin, shown HERE. The skin kind of reminds me of Tron with a Big Daddy helmet, but overall, not that interesting to me. For those readers in the UK interested in this skin, it can be purchased from Gamestation as well. Walmart offers free ground shipping. Halo 4 Standard - $59.96 Halo 4 Imited Edition - $99.96 Britain's Buy.com, called Play.com, is the only seller of the Dead-Eye helmet skin (HERE), but being an American, this package is not worth the trouble of purchasing from Play. Besides, rockin' this would just put a big bull's eye right on my head, which isn't for me. Regardless of my opinion, Play only ships within the UK and offers free ground shipping. Halo 4 Standard - £44.99 Halo 4 Limited Edition - £69.99 Also available in the UK is the Oceanic armor and a weapon skin pack from Game.co.uk. I'm afraid their website does not denote exactly which weapon skin come with the preorder set, based on the image I can speculate that one of the skins is the Arctic weapon skin that GameStop and EBGames also offered. Game also offers a good price for UK gamers and it ships free anywhere in the UK. Halo 4 Standard - £39.99 Halo 4 Limited Edition - £64.99 Another skin I liked and is already available with the MightyApe package is the Pulse armor skin, shown HERE. The store offering this skin exclusively is Microsoft's game store (also available via xbox.com). Microsoft offers a good deal because they ground ship for free and toss in $25 discount on your next Microsoft store purchase. However, so far the $25 discount card is not available to the Limited Editiion copy, though that may change in the near future. Nevertheless, still a pretty good deal. Halo 4 Standard - $59.99 Halo 4 Limited Edition - $99.99 If you are looking to stay cheap for this release and don't give a rat's cerebral cortex (keepin' it clean) about exclusive armor skins, Buy.com has the best price for Halo 4 I've seen on the internet so far and ships very cheaply. Halo 4 Standard - $54.99 + $5.18 ground shipping Halo 4 Limited Edition - $73.99 + $5.18 ground shipping I hope you guys find the skin that's right for you, feel free to correct me or suggest another store I can add to the list via PM, and thanks for reading!
  10. Halo 4 is the next big installment in the famed Halo series. The rumored beginning of a brand new trilogy, Halo 4 is being developed by 343 Industries, the same company that took over for Bungie and brought us the spectacular Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary Edition. So now, only a little over three months from the long-awaited release, everyone is misquoting Shakespeare, saying; "To preorder, or not to preorder: that is the question." Sure, we've been told all about the epic things in store for Halo 4, but is it worth shelling out a hundred and five bucks to get the Limited Edition? Is it even worth $65 for the basic one? You pick. -Church P.S. If you pick option 4 in the multiple choice, YOU HAD BETTER RESIGN YOUR COMMISSION OR GET BANHAMMERED!!! jk lol --------------------------------------------NEW UPDATE------------------------------------------------------------------ THERE IS NOW A LIMITED EDITION 320GB CONSOLE AVAILABLE!!!
  11. Right now me and my brother have a total of $50. We are considering pre-ordering Halo 4 from the Gamestop website for $60. That way we don't have to worry about it being sold out, or waiting to buy it. Should I, is it worth it?
  12. Ok, I've decided that I'm going to preorder the Halo 4 Limited edirion from Mightyape.com, since that comes with most of the skins out of any retail. However, that place is based in New Zealand and I was afraid that since I live in the U.S the codes would not work. Should I be afraid about this? Also, I do not shop online much so if i ordered it from there, would I get it on the day it comes out or would I have to wait. I am very concerned. Soembody please help me and provide some information. Thanks =)
  13. I have just preorded halo 4 limited edition from Eb games NZ i cant wait to get it and it is also cool because it comes with the future map packs just cool
  14. So I just bought halo cea, and it says it comes with the grunt funeral skull and avatar armor. So my question is, do I get the pre-order bonuses without actually pre-ordering? 'Cause if I did, then walmart is now my best friend.
