Halo’s new look

Marking a year since Halo 2’s launch Bungie has revealed some more details of the Xbox 360’s somewhat obscure backwards compatibility features. We already knew there are probably going to be some old Xbox titles that won’t run on the new console but Halo fans will be pleased to hear that the top selling title is definitley going to work. It looks like the 360, instead of simply playing the Xbox games, will manage to make them look a whole lot better too (as the pic supposedly demonstrates) enabling widescreen, 720p graphics and full-scene anti-aliasing. This should provide the reason for digging out the old Halo games that Xbox promised us before and, best of all, you can just use your original copy to play; no alterations are required. And all of Halo 2’s Xbox Live features will work too.
