6 Games for the Price of… Well, It Depends How You Value Games
Once exclusive to the Xbox consoles, the Halo games are coming to PC. Question: Do you still get to call it the Master Chief Collection if it includes games that do not feature Master Chief? Anyway the Halo: Master Chief Collection PC version will include Halo 1 and 2 (Anniversary Editions), 3, 4, Reach, and ODST. The thing is, they will all be purchased separately. Moreover, the prices compared to the previous release of the collection may surprise you. The titles will release one at a time starting with a Halo: Reach beta on Steam and Mircosoft Store.
Let’s talk price. Each game will cost $10 USD with the exception of Halo 3: ODST, that will cost $5 USD. With all six games, that will run you $55. Not bad for six games. Although, if you were to buy the collection on Xbox One, it would only cost $30. That would get you all six minus Halo: Reach. So, through that lens, is it really a good deal? The collection on Xbox One are all games that have been on consoles before. This is the first time they will be on PC, so are PC users willing to spend the extra money?
More-moreover, Microsoft is launching Xbox Game Pass for PC, which will include the Master Chief Collection. On Xbox One, Game Pass costs $10 a month, but will cost $5 on PC as an introductory cost. If you are a brand new subscriber to the service, it will be marked down even further to $1. So, yeah, $55 for six Halo games. How long do you think PC users will have to wait for Halo: Infinite? Halo: Infinite, as we now know, will be a launch title for Project Scarlett.
