Would you be surprised if I told you that 343 Industries have no plans to introduce Halo: The Master Chief Collection to the Xbox 360 or the PC? I know I certainly wouldn't, as it seems Microsoft have found that The Master Chief Collection would be a solid way to encourage a bunch of their core fans to move over to the Xbox One platform.
However, it's not all just about business practice - according to a blog by 343 Industries on the Halo Waypoint, the Xbox 360 just wouldn't be able to handle the Master Chief Collection. At first, that seems like an odd thing to realize, especially considering all four games in the collection were released for either the Xbox 360 or the original Xbox, but if you think about it, it makes sense.
Halo 4 on it's own already takes two discs to play on the Xbox 360, and that doesn't include the extra included DLC maps. Throw in Halo 3, Halo 2 anniversary, which has been overhauled with brand new cutscenes, and the Halo Combat Evolved anniversary, and you'd have a collection that spans across at least four to five different discs.
That kind of approach to the Master Chief Collection would certainly not be the kind of unified experience 343 Industries were looking for. Of course, there's always the question of why 343 can't port the collection over to the PC, but I'm sure that really does just come down to Xbox One business practice.
The Master Chief Collection will be released for Xbox One on November 11th, 2014, alongside a brand new digital Halo series.
