Fans Launch Petition For Halo: The Master Chief Collection PC

DSOGaming writes: "As you may have heard, Microsoft will release a HD remastered pack for all previous Halo games on Xbox One. Naturally, there is no word yet for a possible PC release, something that forced fans to launch a petition and show their interest."

Would be a silly move on MS' part. They need to enhance the value of the Xbox One not devalue it by catering for PC.

Still, this is one of the best if not the best value packages ever. I can't wait.

tgunzz681d ago

Totally agree! Ms Don't do it!!!! This belongs to the xb1!!

Webbyy681d ago

yea. not going to happen. Ms knows they need people to buy x1. if these comes to pc maybe 2 to 3 years from this fall

Would you like to see Half Life 3 on Xbox One? What about Uncharted 4 or The Order 1886?

What does it matter if PS4 or PC gamers get to play the same game as you? Are you competing to prove you made the best spending decision? Do you enjoy their misery when only you get to play some of the games (despite the fact you are miserable when their platforms get exclusives)?

If you answered yes to the top paragraph and no to the following one then you'll see why exclusives are bad for gamers as a community. If we stopped making purchasing decisions on software we could look purely to hardware and console manufacturers would have to push even better parts into their machines to compete (or reduce the price).

Having said that I understand why they are made. I just think it's important for us as a community to accept that we all lose out (well, all of us who don't find pleasure in the misery of others) from their existence and where possible, not specifically ask for them or make statements like "This belongs to the xb1", as it only feeds the habit, which hurts all of us as consumers.
I mean, could you imagine if they made DVD's (in the days before Netflix) such that you could only watch some on certain DVD players? We'd say it was mad. This is what exclusives represent (as hardware is so similar these days.

No.
They can buy an XBOX ONE.

PC master race begging for ports? lulz

DevilOgreFish681d ago

PC is definitely master race. but this is no good for the console economy. As much as i would be tempted for this on PC, i turned the opportunity down.

Septic 's right, this would be silly on Microsoft's behalf, and this would also destroy the competition both sony and Ms need to keep the industry going.

BattleAxe680d ago (Edited 680d ago )

The Master Chief collection would add more value to Microsoft Windows, which is exactly what Microsoft needs.

Apple is taking a bite out of the PC gaming space with more and more games being able to be played on MAC. Then you have SteamOS/Linux which will chip away a tiny bit from Windows in regards to PC gamers, especially since SteamOS is free.

Lastly you have Google, which at some point will come out with a strategy for releasing Chrome on desktop PCs. Google is seriously taking over everything it seems, and it probably wont be long before they try to make a move into the office PC space with Google Docs Office Edition, Gmail Office, and Chrome Business Edition or something along those lines.

If Microsoft releases some of their most popular games, which are only able to be played on Windows PC, then they are helping to bolster the strength of their desktop operating system. Microsoft's future is not going to be placed solely in a livingroom games console, they're too big for that.

Xbox is only one small aspect in Microsoft, and I would think that they would use Xbox assets to help other areas of their business if they can. Not to mention the large amount of software sales that Microsoft Game Studios would make with the Master Chief Collection on PC. Besides, they would probably never release the newest Halo games on PC for at least a few years, obviously to protect Xbox One, but with older software, why not?

True but it would go some way in showing that they still care for PC gaming instead of just saying they do.

They've been distancing themselves from PC gaming for years now. I doubt this will come to PC but hope it does.

tgunzz681d ago

I hear what you are saying, but this will be a monster set for the xb1.

Raf1k1681d ago

I completely agree. This is an amazing collection. Really liking the work being put into Halo 2.

wtopez681d ago

Here's an interesting bit of info of what the demo was like at E3.

It's coming to PC eventually, but not on day one.

lelo681d ago

I wouldn't mind getting Halo: The Master Chief on the PC since I don't have a X1, but it would be a silly move by Microsoft. The X1 needs all the exclusives it can get.... if not for exclusives, then what's the point of a X1?

djplonker681d ago (Edited 681d ago )

My guess is this will be coming to pc but only after halo 5 launches to give pc owners a reason to buy an xbox one.

that would generate more sales for both!

Magicite681d ago (Edited 681d ago )

in games department PC is not getting any love from MS :(

Although there is Halo, Halo 2 and Halo Spartan Assault on PC, so its not entirely impossible to see other Halos coming to PC..

Vegamyster681d ago (Edited 681d ago )

It would be silly although it would be nice if they brought the Halo 1 & 2 Anniversary to Steam since the original two were on PC, doubt that will happen though.

Razputin681d ago

I'm a pretty big Microsoft supporter but regardless of the game I still won't buy an Xbox One.

They have yet to show a true killer app for it.

Any one who is a true gamer will always opt for the PC version.

I still enjoy my Xbox 360 but seriously don't see the need to make the switch to an Xbox One any time soon.

escott013681d ago

Hey, hey, don't forget that Halo 1 and Halo 2 were also on the PC and they had quite large online communities. It's not a far cry from a slap in the face to those who enjoyed the first two Halo games on PC.

Although in my opinion it's still a system seller for the Xbox One to me! Can't miss out!

user5669510680d ago (Edited 680d ago )

why would anyone even want this. let them have there exclusives. and dont pc have enough shooters. i get ashamed when my pc brethren begs for port like console gamers. let them keep there games

plus this would be the dumbest thing to do for ms. less exclusives on their console. ms could of had the pc gaming market like steam is doing now or at a much higher calibre but they are stupid its too late now.

Why are there always petitions to get xb1 games on other platforms?? This just shows how cool the xb1's lineup of games is.

truefan1681d ago (Edited 681d ago )

Agree 100%, people can talk all they want, but this is now the 4th petition already to bring an XB1 game to another platform (Titanfall, Quantum Break, Sunset Overdrive, and now Halo MCC) This just reaffirms what I have been saying, MSFT is bringing the GAMES!!!

OmegaShen681d ago (Edited 681d ago )

To get them on another platform? Halo was on PC from start, it stop at Halo 3.

Its not like people are asking for it on PS4 or Wii U (lol, Wii U).

MELMAN26681d ago

@OmegShen
LOL...So what if Halo 1 and 2 came to the pc?? What does that have to do with anything? They are advertising this as an xb1 exclusive, people should let it be and stop petitioning for xb1 games.

If you want xb1 games, stop with the silly petitions, save your pennies and go get yourself an xbox one.

Septic681d ago

Halo was not on PC from the start.

OmegaShen681d ago

@Septic

So you don't count Halo CE has the start of Halo then? My point is, it was on PC before MS made it console only.

As for Melman's dumb reply, I own both on MS first xbox system and find it pretty dumb in his comment to say that would make a petition.

MS can put it on PC later down the line, will they? Most likely not, but I don't care. I own all systems, so I won't be missing out.

Septic681d ago

"So you don't count Halo CE has the start of Halo then? My point is, it was on PC before MS made it console only. "

No you said Halo was on PC from the start. It didn't come out on PC from the start.

It STARTED on Xbox. It came out on PC much later.

kingduqc681d ago

It also show that people doont want to play on xbone and would prefer it being on pc... i know i would.

Malphite680d ago

"Why are there always petitions to get xb1 games on other platforms?"

Ahm... obviously because people want to play the game without having to buy another platform for it.

MELMAN26680d ago (Edited 680d ago )

@malphite
LMAO....thats not how it works buddy. If people want MS exclusives they should or should have bought an xbox one. Who's fault is that? People are always talking bad about the xbox one but want all of its games, if it is truly "about the games" like people say it is then why don't they have an xbox one??

You don't see Xbox or Nintendo gamers petitioning for PC or Playstation 4 exclusives.

PC gamers and Sony gamers are not entitled to get Xbox exclusives. The Xbox is entitled to have its own exclusives without Sony and PC gamers begging and petitioning for them.

Malphite679d ago

"If people want MS exclusives they should or should have bought an xbox one."

By that logic everyone should own all platforms because there are good games on all of them.

Do you realise that Microsoft also makes PC games? They even said that they want to support PC games more. If you make as statement like that it's not surprising that people will take you at your word, especially when Halo games already have been released on PC.

You should stop generalising some haters you see on n4g with the whole gaming community. Most people recognize a good game when they see one.

blakstarz681d ago

What is the point of a petition for this? Doesn't this eventually come to PC anyway? Just be patient!

OmegaShen681d ago

It could, MS could wait a year or so and put it on PC. But I wouldn't wait to hear it come to PC.

No_Limit681d ago

LOL, how come everytime there is a high profile exclusive on a MS console, these kind of petitions always happen. From Ryse, to Sunset Overdrive, to Halo. I have yet to see any other exclusives on other consoles with these kind of port begging. If you really want something, you'll find a way to get it or you'll just have missed out. It is not that difficult, people.

Shnooze681d ago

I think this particular one is because they just stopped making Halo available for PC after Halo 2, and alienated their entire PC playerbase, myself included.

vega275681d ago (Edited 681d ago )

MS should just keep it for the x1. If people want it so bad buy one. I have a good gaming pc but i still want it on my x1.
