It has proven to be an impressive bit of technology, and something I hope to see them continue to use as we enter the next generation of gaming.

With expectations running high for an HD version of Halo 2, it makes sense that Microsoft would want to lock down this tech for itself. Are you excited at the potential of more remakes along these lines? How awesome would a Microsoft-published Final Fantasy VII remake be with this treatment? Let us know in the comments below.
