Sounds cool. It'll be great to play Halo's grandpa series on the Box. I do hope they improve the graphics a bit though: pixelated like that running on a 360 with full High-def. . .

Well, it IS just a rumor at this point. Given that Marathon has already been open sourced and been given a texture upgrade in the form of Aleph One, it seems a shame to waste that effort-- but since it IS open source, I doubt MS could charge for it-- and if they can't, why would they bother?

Since I do most of my gaming on the console now and not a Mac or PC, I'd love to play the Marathon series on the 360. I had fun with the original Doom games included on the Doom 3 disc-- probably more than I had with Doom 3 itself!
