Bungie has released new screenshots of Halo and Halo 2 looking a lot nicer (especially on HDTVs) thanks to the magic of emulation, er the Xbox 360.
Now that Halo 2’s reached its 1st birthday (er, 1st anniversary of its launch date), Bungie’s posted a retrospective not only on the sequel to its original Xbox shooter, but also on MS’s first console killer app (and Bungie’s first game as a wholly-owned studio for Microsoft). The biggest news, of course, concerns the improved emulation of system sellers Halo 1 and 2 on the 360, which will be displayed “in wide screen, at 720p, with full scene anti-aliasing,” without looking “kludgy, artifacty or smeary like an upscanning DVD player.” As they say, “both games look like they’re running on a PC at those resolutions.” No software update required (at least at first).
That’s some big FPS FSAA news. More information on these resolutions will be given on Friday the 11th.
