Halo 4 is not coming to the PC - System Requirements Are Reffering to X360's Accessories

DSOGaming writes: "We know that a lot of you want to see Halo 4 on the PC. Yeah, it would be cool but this seems like a wishful thinking, even though there were various rumors, suggesting that Microsoft would boost its PC library with the release of Windows 8. And since Reddit' user 'PhenomFTW' spotted some 'mysterious' system requirements at Halo 4's official website, we decided to take a look at what these requirements could actually be, before the Internet gets flooded with this rumor." (Halo 4, PC)

No surprise there.

MS is great at telling people they want to support PC gaming, but they haven't actually done anything except give GFWL. Kind of wish they hadn't tried to do anything after that.

How many sony exclusives have made it to pc?

Its like ms never wins if they support pc then they have no
"games" as the sony sdf likes to claim

But if they dont support the pc then they get heat regardless.

Whatever.

SOE makes more pc games than Microsoft. Which is Sony Online Entertainment. Cant wait for thier next title Planetside 2.

Who should be thinking before they post now?

Halo should have a place on the PC market.

not surprised

Who would be dumb enough to think it was coming to the PC?
G33K  +   587d ago
Maybe it will in a couple years like halo 1 and 2, but we're still waiting for Halo 3.
ChunkyLover53  +   587d ago
Why would they all of a sudden put out Halo on PC? No Halo games this generation have made it to PC, seems like a given that Halo 4 wouldn't make it either. Brains people, use'em.

Would be great though, and it'd sell a lot too.
KMCROC54  +   587d ago
Does anyone not realise that if MS placed all of their games on PC, their would be no need for an Xbox console. i kind of prefer console gaming, also why does no one tell or ask Sony to put their games on PC or give them shit about it .only MS has to put up with this BS every game.

unlike microsoft sony actually makes PC exclusives ever heard of Planetside or everquest. why doesn't microsoft make PC exclusives instead of just giving the same game i can get on a xbox?
KMCROC54  +   587d ago
Fine Sony does make some PC exclusives , but thing is everyone is always asking MS for their console exclusives to be released on PC WHY .
thehitman  +   587d ago
the reason they dont make PC exclusives because they cant even dish out enough xbox exclusives. I think MS gambled on 3rd party studios too much this gen and as it worked out for the first year or so it became pretty obvious that MS had nothing else to show for themselves after that besides kinect. If MS wants to continue doing well and be relevant next-gen they need to heavily invest in more studios producing xbox only games then they can worry about the PC.
DeadlyFire  +   586d ago
Well Microsoft has no need to compete for the gaming community in the pc space as Mac and Linux gaming are very small in comparison.

If that were to change then we would see them try again but I wouldnt mind couple year old halo port to pc every now and then. Say Halo 3 on Windows 8 in 2013 through Xbox Live?

They might use games to kick off the Windows 8 ARM edition launch. Even Xbox 360 or 720 games with delayed ports to pc would be welcomed by many.
Omega Zues  +   587d ago
Bah, for a moment I thought that hey...maybe just maybe...Halo 4 on pc...

but nope.
MadMen  +   587d ago
It will come to PC once we move to the next gen, MS puts them out one cycle behind to not affect console game sales
lol I would still play planetside 2 even if it did.
bigdaddy4247  +   587d ago
It will would nice to see them release a PC version. Just to see the outcome of it. who knows if they ever do and it does well. we could be looking at PC and X360 Halo releases. i don’t think its impossible but Halo has always been a good selling point for X360’s which is why it sells a lot and GOW as well.

But of course they are always going to focus on consoles first.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   587d ago
Though I wouldn't mind the idea of Cross platform play with PC users. PC user generated content(Helmets chest gear effects like pestilence, electric, snow etc.) Anything they create really/ mods. Console VS PC players that sorta thing. Imo I think that would be cool.
taquito  +   587d ago
every game comes to pc eventually, emulators for every console ever made up to psp/ps2 are already working near perfectly, a ps3 emulator was developed and working in russia and got shut down by sony real fast, but that means its already nearly here!

every game comes to pc eventually!

death
taxes
and every game coming to pc

cannot wait to see halo reach and uncharted 3 with nice resolutions, and proper framerates with working anti aliasing

y and ppl wil sooooooooooooo gonna wait 3 years for a crappy emulator right ?

stop finding excuses lol
emulators or not consoles was-is-will be the best option nuff said.
ShaunCameron  +   587d ago
My sentiments exactly.

Yeah. A crappy emulator that they'll be forced to take down once they get hit with a cease-and-desist order. LOL
iamgoatman  +   587d ago
It would be nice if it did come out on PC, but I doubt it's going to happen any time soon.
AO1JMM  +   587d ago
We all know this already.
GrahamGolden  +   587d ago
lol there is a reason they r not making port for pc..

gears 1 and halo 1-2 came for pc make all the rest multi on pc and there is no reason to buy an xbox since all the other "exclusives" i play them on my pc except forza wich is trully exclusive.
Somebody  +   587d ago
After years of enduring MS's promises to support the PC, it's hard for to believe anything anymore. Even Windows 8 is a nothing more a move into the mobile market, NOT about MS's "dedication" towards PC gaming. X Box LIVE service in Windows 8 and the only game that was demoed for the new OS was only to show MS tablets' capability.
Agent_hitman  +   584d ago
MS is very aggressive to defeat or dethrone Sony in console dominance, that's why they don't release any Xbox IP anymore lol... Plus piracy on PC is insanely high at rate..
