With so many games coming out I think I'm going to have to rent this one so I'm not sure when I'll get it.

With the disaster that the Master Chief Collection was at launch. I'm going to wait a bit for others to test the waters.

I think the probability of that happening is way too small. You'll get a few people with crappy internet service saying they can't connect on Twitter launch day, but I highly doubt it'll be anything like MCC. That said, I didn't pre-order and will just get it with the masses.

Ya mcc. Was more try to put so many different games into on MP XP u don't feel the coding for that was up to par. Who know it might be bad but I agree with klown and don't feel it will be as big of a thing ... I have my copy pre downloading and waiting for me

I'm jaded because MCC is still fucked up and yes, I know that they had to put old code together and games, etc, etc, but if you decide to make a game under those terms then take the time and do it right or not at all. Handing a half finished fucked up mess to the public with hardly any dialog to your customers about it is an a$$hole move. Just my 2 cents. If I do get Halo 5, it's going to be later and not day one.

In a perfect world, or with games from 20 years ago that would be valid. These days studios get a project, their producers/finance give them an absurd date (finish it in 12 months). The studio usually will need either way more resources or way more time. MCC was just too bold of an undertaking that their studio wasn't ready to do in the timeline they were given. Especially true as it doesn't fit the standard game dev lifecycle.

Looking at all the full game releases in the past, it's pretty absurd to go 'Oh, I think these guys are going to mess it up'
I understand the trepidation though. But if there's one game MS won't stand for getting hosed on launch, it's their flagship gameseller exclusive.

Selling broken products to consumers is an unacceptable business practice everywhere on the planet but in the gaming industry it's a standard practice and people accept it and even defend it. If those are business practices you prefer to support then go for it. I'm sick of getting games that have to be fixed because "Oh well, thank god interwebz patches, lolz!" It's a joke. Like I said, waiting before buy if at all.

I get what you're saying, but think if people stopped buying CoD after CoD2 was literally unplayable for the entire first year it was out? You definitely wouldn't be waiting for BLOPS1252346 right now. The franchise would be dead. Heck, just about every CoD launch has had horrific MP bugs that ruined online play for months at a time.

It should be fairly obvious MCC is a completely different undertaking than a standard AAA title.

Using the multiplayer connectivity from the end of the beta as a reference I'm not too concerned about the quality of life for launch week. That being said, I always play through Single player/Co-Op first so should there be launch issues they won't have a big impact on me.

I didn't mean to turn this thread into a discussion about the gaming industry, sorry about that. Like I said, I've become jaded and I think MCC pushed me to the edge. I'll never pre-order or day one buy another game ever again. It's a response to how this has become. I won't be a cog in a wheel of a broken machine. I love Halo, I've almost got all the achievements for MCC for christ's sake. (One of which I had to uninstall the game, reinstall it and play it offline to get because it was broken for a year) I can't get enough, so you can understand my frustration. I hope the game launches awesome and it's great for everyone, but I won't say it's ok for them to do what they do by buying it until it works.

No worries Conscious - I don't think you offended anyone, just friendly discussion Smile
It is a pretty big problem in the industry. Just look at most peoples opinions on picking up SW Battlefront xD

Anywho...

Halo launching tomorrow night already??? Surprised

What is the size requirement for H5?
With all the new maps (free maps that is) I should buy that 5TB drive at some point.

Not sure on total req. I have a ~47G install already, and they have said there will be a 9G day 1 patch.

The launch I think is midnight pacific time, kinda confusing.  Also if you guys go to xbox.com and go to the halo 5 game, watch the videos for master chief and his hunter for their own views and you get a reward for it.
