Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary Cutscene Library

The Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary Cutscene Library began appearing online on November 21, 2011 - less than a week after the game's release. Huge thanks to Dustin 'Dust Storm' Pettigrew, of Podtacular, for his amazingly fast turnaround with these recordings.

HD versions are 1280x720, SD versions are 640x360.

Update, December 18, 2011: Thanks to Cody Miller, for re-encoding these cutscenes in full Surround Sound (where possible). Some scenes were only broadcast in stereo, or are otherwise unavailable in full 5.1 - these are noted in the descriptions.

You can view a streaming version of the cutscene by clicking on a thumbnail.
