  • Yea, I'd say you're about 12 years old, judging by that post. There are plenty of games I can play while waiting for halo 3 vista. All of which have equal or BETTER graphics then the 360. Ever heard of Crysis? Yea, DX10 owns 360. Have fun sitting around sucking your thumb and playing halo 3 in "HD", hahaha. btw, 360 controller works on pc, but keyboard and mouse still owns. I kind of feel sorry for console owners... Xbox gets upgraded like what? once every 4 years?? thats gotta suck..... [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] jandowae Ha! On the PC you say? Really? Had no idea! Yes you are exactly the fool I believe bungie is marketing for. Enjoy playing a game that was big news 2 years ago. While you pay (I'm guessing using your mummy's credit card) for your experience with a 'keyboard and mouse' on your 'custom content' everyone else will be playing games such as gears of war and enjoying a NEW experience. I'm sure you are just wetting your pants waiting for Halo 3 vista in 2009.[/quote]

  • as soon as developers drop DX9 and make DX10 only games, that's when everyone will start to upgrade to Vista...but they are releasing a DX9L for XP, but that's still not DX10, so that's basically for DX10 games being able to run on a DX9 cards, kinda like Halo 2 Vista, although some people get their info wrong and make the assumption that since they are releasing DX9L (which is based on what Vista uses with DX9 cards), that Halo 2 Vista will work on XP, but that's false cuz Vista's applications are based on Win32...but yeah, i hope they give us some more info, and i'm looking forward to the PC Gaming Mag, also does anyone know when that will be released?

  • I am sick and tired of people thinking that your buying Halo 2 Vista JUST to buy Vista, when in fact you will have to get Vista anyway! Think about it, whithin two months of Vista's release, all games will most likey NOT support windows XP anymore. Not to mention you'll need Vista for DX10.

  • but why should we pay out for widows vista just to play halo 2 in a higher resolution and a map editor. oh and by the way, the xbox 360 (yes i have a 360 to, can you belive it !, gold star for me) emulator drasticly improved the texture poping issue in halo 2 along with other visual inhasments such as ant-alising so visually the game still looks great on the xbox 360. ill wate till vista goes down in prise before upgrading my pc from XP to vista even though I have the hardware to play halo 2 vista. all i'm saying is it's a lot of money, but am keen to see the visual upgrades on the pc version, so i gess i'm sort of contradicting myself,lol [Edited on 11/3/2006]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] jandowae Great story? Nothing like learning all about the release of a game that actually came out 2 years ago but now is being re released with a few extras and some graphical improvements. I just cannot wait to play Halo 2!!!! Wait I already did play it. Over and over again. Oh well, congratulations to you guys if you fool some people into paying for the game all over again. [/quote] You do know that not everyone has an xbox. Gee what is it with bungie.net and all the retarted xbox fanboys on it. I don't mind xbox fanboys but it just the retarted ones that can't read the title of the news. A person who has no interest in halo 2 for PC "Halo 2 Vista Developer Diary" "O look it says halo 2 and it says vista that means it information about halo 2 on the PC, because i have already play halo 2 on the xbox and have no interest for it i will not click on the link." A retarted xbox fanboy "Halo 2 Vista Developer Diary" "YAY it says halo that means it must be information about halo 3 for the xbox or it must be a bungie weekly update. *Reads the news* "OMG that was all about halo 2, I want halo 3. I'm going to click on the "Discuss This Story" link and post how retarted i am."

  • By the way, I just want to mention that the custom mapmaking on Halo 2 will be AWSOME. That's practically the only redeeming aspect of FAR CRY - I'm very excited about what the community will make. I'm also hoping that we'll SOON see Halo 3 on Vista (i.e. within a couple years). And while I like the care and balance that has gone into the Halo 2 multiplayer maps, I'd like to see even more variety in the next incarnations (H2V and H3). Maps that are freaking hilarious to play. With lots of unnecessary turrets and vehicles. Which, for some odd reason, reminds me of the time I played 16 player rumble King of the Hill against the PMS Clan. Brutal. Totally Unnecessary. Yet Freaking Hilarious. That's the Halo that I love.

  • I actually can't wait to play Halo 2 on Vista. I just need to build a machine to play it :) Any chance we can play Halo 2 over an Excel spreadsheet w/ with the Aero Glass effect? Dang, that would be cool, and mildly productive at the same time!!!

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] KPaul Some of the responses in this thread are classic. Kudos to your respective fits of rage, readers. lol.[/quote] No problem. That's what we're here for. I also have a question. I apologize if this somewhat dampens the H2V party, but, Halo 2 ran on the original Xbox. The original Xbox only had 64 megs of RAM. Halo 2 PC will run on computers with way more than 64 megs of RAM. So, I have to wonder, what's the big deal? I understand about the map editor, the new matchmaking and all these such things being really, really cool. But what about Vista is it that is seemingly requiring that Halo 2 be completely rebuilt? Did someone at Bungie, possibly the Webmaster, delete all the project files from Halo 2 or something?

  • I can't belive that Xbox fanboys constantly insist that there systems are better then PC's... They also apparently forget that the xbox system IS a PC with some custom Hardware modifications. The PC is king of the gaming world, its upgradable, and that means that we will NEVER have to buy new systems. I personaly own both an Xbox and an Xbox 360. My xbox is is totaly tricked out with mods/case lights (No I don't cheat with it online, I don't even own an xbox live subscription), Even with a new OS on my xbox, it's not near what a PC can become. The Xbox 360 mods will come close to rivaling PC's, but untill there stable, im not going to invest... Don't get me wrong, I love Xbox's and their games, but the PC is better in ever aspect.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Boo_Diddly Have you even seen what people have done with Halo CE? ... There are at least 800 different maps that people have created; some good, some bad, and some that are better than what Bungie could have produced with that engine.[/quote] I really hope you are not referring to those steaming piles of crap on your web page as good. Who are the two beta testers, your mom and your brother. [quote]I have an Xbox. I have Halo for that Xbox, beat legendary 4 times. I also have the Halo 2 Collector's Edition for Xbox, beat legendary twice. I have Halo PC, beat legendary twice. When Halo 3 comes out, I'll be buying it and a 360. When Halo 3 comes out for PC, I will be getting that too.[/quote] Congratulations you must be so proud of such meaningless life achievement's. Make sure you put that on your resume for your next job interview. (I'm sure the Burger King recruiter will be impressed) [quote]Please come back when you have a brain and your balls have dropped, thank you.[/quote] Lol. This coming from a guy that goes to MTU. I have a brain and it got me into a much better school than MTU.

  • yup thats pretty much it... pay for the game then the multiplayer is free. but gj bungie keep up the great work! ^_^ now only if the guy I know that works at bungie will give me the beta when it comes out (if there is or if he's just pulling my leg). Highly unlikely but I hope so...

  • Oh, by the way. I do believe that the multiplayer will be free. The maps will be free too. The only things we will have to pay for are the game and the internet connection.

And the only game you said ya'll be playing is Gears of War, which according to you wil be exclusive to the 360, wrong. At least we have skill that we won't need Auto Aim, bullet magnetism and huge hitboxes. Anyway, i can't wait for Halo 2 Vista. All this custom content stuff is really making me impatient!

Stop making assumptions and start checking your facts. Have you even seen what people have done with Halo CE? That is Halo Custom Edition since obviously you haven't got a brain. Go look at some of the maps and not say that it is a different experience playing on those maps. There are at least 800 different maps that people have created; some good, some bad, and some that are better than what Bungie could have produced with that engine. I have an Xbox.
