More Evidence of Halo 3 PC Surfaces

The Halo 3 PC mystery has just gotten a little deeper. After Halo 3 (and its predecessors) turned up in the Steam registry, PC gamers were ready to jump at the chance to play some of the best rated FPS titles on their rigs. Microsoft shot down the idea, specifically saying that it wasn't going to happen. So why is there an entry for Halo 3 in the latest AMD beta drivers?

As much as id like for it to be true, i just don't think its going to happen. I could possibly see it happening when the new console launches. For all we know there might be another reason why its called Halo3.exe in the beta drivers and have nothing to do with the game.

That's a possibility, of course. The fact that Halo 1-3 turned up in the Steam registry a mere two weeks before the phrase Halo3 turned up in the beta drivers is intriguing, but not 100% proof of anything.

At the very least, there's something very interesting happening. For both AMD and whoever handled that Steam registry to fall for it, this is more than just some random trick.

Pc gamers are not 12 year old console gamers and dont give a shit what IGN "amazing" has said. No one is jumping because no one cares.

Halo 3 on PC would sell well, especially given that a lot of people who bought consoles at the beginning of this gen may well have bought a PC in the mean time. A digital title needs only to sell a couple hundred thousand units and its even, and given that Halo 3 is already in the pure-profit zone, there's no real reason not to do it if they suddenly want to.

Oh, unless of course you're right and literally nobody who owns a PC cares. We both know that's not true though.

If this were true, which I highly doubt, it would be rather insulting at this point.

Seeing as how MS is just naturally close to PC gaming with Windows, this could have been done long ago. You know, when we cared.

Its really strange how completely inept MS is at supporting PC gaming. When GFWL has issues with Win 8, its probably better to just stop trying.

Since it was AMD drivers my guess is it has something to do with the 720.

matgrowcott1229d ago

There is absolutely no reason AMD beta drivers for PC would have data needed for 720. Microsoft/Sony will be handling their own firmware; we're not all of a sudden going to be seeing console profiles in Catalyst.

aliengmr1229d ago

Well seeing as how MS said it wasn't true, I guess AMD just decided to make a profile for no reason at all.

GFWL had issues all the time!

And it flat out wouldn't work with MS's own Windows 8. Pretty sad when your own service requires a work-around to run in your own OS.

my microsoft mouse and keyboard doesn't like windows 7 works fine on my ps3 though isn't that crazy?

It's way too late to matter. Maybe halo 4 might actually sell a few copies.
