Thanks to Simon Hutchinson who sent in an image he got from the Microsoft Download Service. Either someone over there has a sense of humor or Halo 3 is going to be coming to the PC.
It's bound to come sooner or later.
And guess who is doing the conversion - Gearbox.
Since I have a gaming pc, the 360 didn't have enough games to convince me to buy one and I bought a PS3.
Yepp, same here. Have Mass Effect, Bioshock and Gears of War on my pc. So yeah, not many games left to convince me buying an xbox... so ps3 was the obvious choice. If halo comes on the pc aswell then gears 2 will be more or less the only reason for me to get a 360.
If Halo 3 is coming to PC then I think it's save to say that eventually Gears 2 will as well. There is an obvious trend.
I told you so! XD
Doesn't take a rocket scíentist to figure that out. MSFT only want's to make more money with selling the game to more people. Can't blame them.
Dont worry this doesnt mean Gears of War 2 is coming to the PC so remeber to buy a 360! Its exclusive
Bites the Dust
Do i need a awesome computer to run it, i hope not i got a junky computer.
It's still microsoft they don't lose they gain more lol. It still exclusive to MS.
For $500 you could play and game to date including Crysis. Get all the parts off of newegg.com
yea i know but right now i don't got 500 buck to build one. well maybe i can get it from my dad. let see
this will not sell well on pc
Why wouldnt it? I think you'd be surprised, with some tweeks here and there to the graphics/gameplay and I think a lot of people would be happy to have this as part of their PC collection. Long shot - But allowing Mods could make Halo 3 huge on the PC. Id certainly buy it again.
We have already seen how "well" Halo sells on the PC. The PC has been unfortunate enough to be the recipient of both Halo 1 and Halo 2 both died without so much of a ripple in the grand scheme of things, I would put good money on Halo 3 hitting the bargain bins 10secs after release. I know I am certainly not going to bother with it, I learnt my lesson after Halo 1.
piracy will kill game sales for pc.
It wasn't piracy that killed sales of Halo on the PC. It was the fact there are far better shooters on the PC. When Halo 1 was released on the PC it already looked ugly and there were far superior games graphically out on the PC. When they got around to making Halo 2 on the PC, they gimped it so it would only run on Vista it looked MASSIVELY out of date. As far as I can remember Halo 2 didn't even get pirated all that extensively, PC gamers are just not interested in Halo It will be the same with Halo 3 it just won't sell and it won't be down to piracy either. When you have games like Crysis and Stalker there is no need for a game like Halo 3. It will NOT be piracy that makes Halo 3 sell badly it will be PC gamers that are totally disinterested in the franchise. However I am sure they will blame piracy, that seems to be the number one scapegoat these days.
Lets see how many ps3 fans who ridiculed halo3 will come now saying they'll buy it for pc. I think pc version will not sell half as many as 360 cuz the real fans already bought it and its more fun playing on big screen HDtvs then drooping over keyboard and 19" inch monitors. Also it will be available on torrents few days before actual launch so there wont be incentives for casuals to go and pay for it. The only good thing would be that since it will be games for windows and online play will be free for pc and they might make it same for 360.
wanna get high? and dont forget to bring a towel when playing games!!
it's about time, what took them so long?
i hav a mac!!! i can't get the game cauze its windows only! same goes for Gears of War. i've always prefered Halo on the computer since the first one
you can run windows on mac.
Try "dual boot" 4 mac. Search youtube or google
well big duh.
I'll buy it. I played through the first two countless times on my original Xbox, but don't own a 360 (thanks to RROD!). Despite the overhyping, I've played Halo 3 a few times and it's a fun game, despite its flaws. The storyline's cliche and lame, but I'd like to finish it up anyway.
i think its fair to say that this will most likely have cross platform support, if it does then ill happily buy it again.
I am not sure where you are coming from here. The previous 2 Halo's didn't have cross platform support and there is nothing to indicate this Halo will have it. The key problem with Cross Platform support is the fact PC gamers will have an advantage because they can play this FPS with a mouse and keyboard which would but the joypad users at a disadvantage. The only way they could do cross platform is if they gimp the control system of the PC to make it fairer.
halo3 sucks! Its weak man! Anyways, so its gonna be free to go online right? when is halo3 gonna be on ps3? Cant I download it? should just take 5 minutes since its just 7 gb. Ha hah!
another xbox360 exclusive i can play for free on my desktop.
lol at the disagrees, you know its true.
Halo on consoles = fairly good shooter Halo on PC = as generic as they come
Just another example of how their piss-poor console can't keep exclusives even FIRST-PARTY PUBLISHED. BWAHAHAHA! What a shoddy pile of crap that console is. Can't rely on it to work, can't rely on it to keep first party exclusives. 360 is teh suck!
Actually, Halo 3 is 3rd party. In reality, Microsoft game studios just publish games, the have NO notable exclusives that sell as well as their 3rd party titles
Retarded much? Games For Windows IS microsoft. Do your homework before posting plz
And another one gone And another one gone And another one bites the dust Let's see: Halo 3, Gears of War, Viva Pinata, Blue Dragon, Assassin's Creed, Eternal Sonata, Ace Combat 6, Lost Planet, Dead Rising, Saint's Row franchise, APB, Tales of Vesperia, Ninja Gaiden (Sigma), Beautiful Katamari, Star Ocean 4, Vampire Rain, Mass Effect, Idolmaster, Bungie/Bizarre/Bioware If *anything,* anything at ALL says exclusive to Xbox 360, don't believe it. It'll jump ship elsewhere Just.Like.That. In that list we have 1st party games (f*ck MS can't even hold onto those), developers of first party games, 3rd party 'exclusives,' only on Xbox 360 stickers, only on Xbox 360 and Windows stickers, former franchises etc. And that's not even counting Mass Effect to PS3, Bioshock to PS3 Sacred 2 to PS3 and many others since those were PC/360. PS3's just SWIMMING in new games!
You forgot FF coming to the 360. :)
Don't they want to sell the Xbox360? If people are getting the idea that most of Xbox360 games are coming to PC. Guess what?? Why get the Xbox360??
Microsoft is just doing what every company wants and that is make money. Halo 3 should be hovering around 10 million sold so it's done its damage. Let some others enjoy it. But if you remember, Halo 2 for the PC sucked compared the xbox.
it would be kinda coll for halo 3 if they would let mods be in it and they made some changes
sorry but to me that pic doesn't seem to tell anything. yes it says direct x but the console uses direct x it also has Gears of War on there does that mean thats gonna come to the pc too? theres no doubt though that halo 3 will come to the pc eventually but it wont' be for a long time look at halo 2 it had beenout 5 years and then they release it to the PC lol
i cant play shooting games on the PC
