Do you have any of them Rumors?

@dipset honestly, a PC port is way harder than a Switch port.
the reason PC is such an undertaking is the expectations of PC players. they want unlocked framerates, ultra wide screen support, FOV sliders, in depth graphics settings etc.
also converting the controls to mouse input isn't as easy as it might seem. Halo 5 Forge for example was known at launch for its awful mouse controls.
meanwhile a Switch port would literally only mean that they need to adjust the graphics so it runs well... that's basically it. all those PC issues are no problem here... maybe Switch users would want Gyro aiming, but that would be the biggest hurdle to overcome if at all.
and the Switch could easily run these games at either 720p60 or 1080p30, at least docked... in handheld mode maybe 720p30 would be the best they can do, but these Halo games were designed with a 30fps cap in mind so it wouldn't feel bad either way... trow in crossplay with Xbox One and you have a big seller on hand!
The only issue would be release , unless it's like the first Switch game on something bigger then a 16 or 32gb card.
Also would said cart only have the main numbered games with ODST and Reach coming as DLC.
Like as cool as Halo on Switch sounds there are some questions about it, I mean hell would MS ship it off to that studio that handled the Switch ports of Doom and Wolfenstein, would it be someone else, in house.
Not to mention we are talking about one of Microsoft's big marquee titles, I mean Cuphead and Ori are one thing being smaller indie games, Minecraft had already become a juggernaut before Microsoft bought it. Like it's kinda hard to fathom if it actually happens. Then there's the question of "does Microsoft get anything in exchange? " like are we (hypothetically) gonna see Mario in a proper Banjo & Kazooie sequel or something, or a major Nintendo ip getting a Xbox port?

well on XBox One you can chose in the main menu which of the games you wan't to be installed or uninstalled.
they could go the expensive route and ship with 2 Carts, with Cart 2 being only for installing and Cart 1 for verification, or they could ship Halo 1 through 3 on the Cart and make the rest downloads.
with some texture compression, audio compression and stuff like that it could be as small as 30GB which would fit on 2 carts.
but yes, a Switch port would need some serious data management optimization.
Grain of salt

Can't wait to ride through Crookback Bog at a silky smooth 12 frames per second in crystal clear 480p.
I hope this is real, I can't get enough of seeing how devs force their way in to a relatively weaker console like this, it's just so interesting.

@bam541 people are thinking it's streaming like revii
@bam541 like getting Doom to play on a calculator
@iboshow how did the RE7 streaming perform sales wise? I wonder if CD projekt got the server budget for that.
@DMCMaster exactly! That still blows my mind.
I don't think they ever revealed any numbers for that streaming version of RE7

Throwing this in rumors until a more solid source appears, but it sounds like PS Plus prices worldwide are going up starting August 1st.
There better be some kind upgrade to plus itself then. Two ideas I've heard that I personally like are 5 games for the IGC but you can only pick two, similar to the welcome back program in 2011. Or if we already own a game featured on IGC give us a discount coupon that's 20%-30% that we can use towards whatever we feel like.

This is a big one that is all but confirmed. It comes from Jason "Big Man" Schrier himself, so it's legitimacy is pretty set. Well that's enough fluff to prevent it spoiling those who don't wish to know; here's the link:
Watch Dogs set in London, called Legion, and the big thing is you can control every NPC. Don't quite know how, but apparently it has lead to a few internal delays.

@capnbobamous maybe they are finally going full ghost in the shell laughing-man and can hack cyber-brains and hide your identity with people looking right at you.
That could actually be pretty damn awesome.

This sounds ambitious and I’m looking forward to the new setting. I just hope the combat is better than it was in the last game.
@capnbobamous You find an NPC, you recruit them, you play as them. According to Jason Schreier. London Watch Dogs, Assemble!
Driver San Fransisco vibes. I can't really imagine how cool this would be right now in WD context, so if this is true I hope they showcase it well.
