Halo: The Master Chief Collection PC Edition Appears on Amazon UK

The leaks and rumors surrounding a possible PC release of Halo: The Master Chief Collection continue to pile up. Recently a listing for the game appeared on Amazon.es, the Spanish version of the popular online retailer. Also, entries have been found within the Steam database for Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, and Halo 3. Today a new listing has popped up on Amazon.co.uk. The listing is currently still available, but expect it to be removed soon.

The title is listed separately from the main Halo: The Master Chief Collection page, and currently only allows users to sign up to be notified if/when it becomes available. Admittedly, this listing alone is highly doubtful evidence, but given the past leaks it becomes more significant. It is still another piece of mounting evidence that Microsoft might be releasing the highly anticipated compilation for PC.

I wouldn't expect an announcement for PC until well after MCC does it's numbers for xbox 1. I'd expect a time frame similar to the wait for GTAV to hit PC.

But now with this rumors of there being a pc version might hold back some potential buyers. They will wait for the pc version

starchild635d ago (Edited 635d ago )

As much as I would love for it to be true, I have to say that this kind of evidence--listings in the Steam database and/or listings on amazon--don't really mean much of anything. We have seen this kind of thing before where it amounted to nothing.

Sometimes it's just one rumor that gets propagated from place to place. We see this as further mounting evidence when in actuality it is simply more people taking the rumor and running with it.

This doesn't mean it definitely won't happen, I'm just saying that the evidence isn't that meaningful at this point.

rawz635d ago (Edited 635d ago )

Yes and no. You are right, they aren't meaningful evidence. But when we look at your own example, one rumour is meaningless. Add bunch of rumours more and it actually becomes meaningful. So at this point I would say the evidence are meaningful.

Wouldn't be a bad idea to launch it on pc before halo5 launches on the x1. Previous halo titles have also been pc so it's not impossible.

iamnsuperman635d ago

I can see why you think that. But I don't think Microsoft cares that it sells well on Xbox than PC. It is their collectors edition. It doesn't mean future Halo games will appear on PC. This is just them building hype for Halo 5. Being on PC might have long term benefits for the Xbox One

mhunterjr635d ago (Edited 635d ago )

But MCC will have short term AND long term benefits for xbox one... They have an opportunity to have their cake and eat it too, so to speak, so I doubt they'd squander that opportunity at the expense of xbox 1 hardware sales.

Once H:MCC has done all it can to help xbox1 sales, we may hear about a PC version.

I hope it's true. I have no problem waiting for the PC release.

Grave635d ago

Same here. Bring on Halo in 3-monitor glory!

Lon3wolf635d ago

Do a search for B00LU32EDM the ASIN number and Amazon Japan lists this too. Would like this to come to PC as I will not be getting a new Xbox for a couple of years, PS4 first (next year) for me this wave of consoles.

I would much rather have this on PC. Be a lot more convenient to launch them from my desktop rather than switching discs. Plus 1440p res and 4X or more AA FTW!

Elmatoor635d ago (Edited 635d ago )

It will be only on one disc on the Xbone.

It will only have one menu for all of the games.

OwnageDC650635d ago

That's great to hear. I would still prefer to launch the game from my desktop. More convenient, cheaper and more graphics options. If it doesn't come out for PC I'll go ahead and purchase it for my Xbox One.

OrangePowerz635d ago (Edited 635d ago )

I would buy that instantly, but I don't really think MS is that stupid because let's be honest it wouldn't be a smart move to release it on anything except X1 given that they want to sell more consoles.

Edit. Truefan1 is that you handing out disagrees to people who say they would buy it on PC? :-D

iamnsuperman635d ago

I don't think a PC version of the collection will do much harm for Xbox One sales. How many potential console owners are going to have a decent PC? Your talking about a large number but still vastly in the minority. This collection is nothing more than building hype for Halo 5 (whilst also filling a gap). Reaching out to those PC fans might convince them (I. E build hype) for Halo 5 (which will be Xbox One exclusive)

mhunterjr635d ago

No man... There's a ton of excitement for this collection. I've talked to people who had no plans of ever getting an xb1, who have done a 180 since hearing about this. Releasing this on PC would change those people minds...

OrangePowerz635d ago

I think you underestimate how many console gamers have a good PC. We are not talking here about the casual Wii crowd, but a game for core gamers and many of them have good PCs as well. I personally don't care about Halo 5, I playrd them until ODST and for me Halo finished with Halo 2 the last great one in the series and I'm not bothered with the tacked on new trilogy. I just want to play the 2 good ones again with better graphics.
