Thats pretty awesome. Id still play the Steam version, but i am happy for those who csn play these masterpieces in 4k and looking amazing. L4D2 via BC on X1 is the uncut version and thats worth a play through in itself.

Nice, I would like to revisit the L4D games in 4K. Even on a 1080p screen its gonna look so much better.

"to showcase the very best version possible with the existing assets" Nah. But I'm very happy a new audience will be able to experience these games. Half-Life 2 is an absolute must play, if you own an Xbox One, go and play it. Don't wait: install it now and get going. Same with the other titles, but yeah, HL2 is a good place to start.

By best version, I think they meant X1X is the best way to experience the 360 version. Hence, "best version with existing assets." Its a confusing sentence.
