Well today at E3 Microsoft announced that they are going to push out Halo for the Xbox One in the form of Halo: The Master Chief collection. With this would be purchasers will be getting original versions of the game as well as an upgraded version of Halo 2. You will also get beta access to the multiplayer side of Halo 5. The full version of Halo 5 is not due until 2015 at the time of this writing.
Halo is the reason that many people bought the Xbox (I know of multiple people that this is the only game they play on the Xbox) so when Microsoft cut off that game from the new hardware it did alienate some fans. This is not to say that now that you can buy a collection of all of the games for Xbox One that gamers will run out and buy the new console, it just removes one existing barrier to consumer trust.
For Microsoft to really get back into gamer’s good graces they will need to drop in a few more incentives and also turn around some existing policies on games and the way the system works. They have taken a step in the right direction by allowing games to unlock additional features and resources in the console itself that will lead to more exciting features and game play, but even that might not be enough to catch up to Sony.
