Matthew Karch, CEO of Saber Interactive, the studio behind the upcoming Xbox 360 remake of Halo: Combat Evolved, has said that he "wouldn't be surprised" to see a PC version of the remake in the future.
If there is a port for pc. Then im getting that for sure ahah
I loved halo 1 on the pc. I'll be all over that.
more the merrier
Chance of Halo4 etc moving to PC aswell?
Wouldn't hold my breath for it tbh. If they did, they may as well port Halo 3, ODST, Wars and Reach. I don't see that happening.
Yay. Good things happen when you support PC gaming.
like getting pirated? :L That seems to happen to a lot of devs these days.
Used games is the bigger problem
Eurgh. Do you think that if suddenly no one was able to pirate that sales would increase? Is that how you think it works eh? You think that all those people downloading games would just go "Oh look at that? I guess I'll just go buy it now." Piracy isn't lost sales. And neither are bloody used games either. Every bloody industry has to deal with second hand sales. It's a feature of capitalism. You see it with cars don't you? If I buy a car I can sell it afterwards and that's hardly stealing from the mouth of Ford or BMW. Game developers are not these poor starved bastards desperate for cash. Yeah sure when they make a shit game they fall on their ass and we all cry boo hoo that some hard working guys are out of jobs but it's the same anywhere else! It's just the nature of a business model where you work for three years and then all your revenue suddenly wooshes in at the end of those few years. It's a risk all games companies have and it's a risk any other company with a similar model takes. "Results of a 2010 survey indicate that the average salary for a game programmer is USD$ 80,300 annually" 80,000 USD ANNUALLY!? Stop acting like the games industry is filled with paupers in desperate need for cash and that whenever one of us acts on our rights to sell something we OWN that we might as well spit on the chidren in oxfam adverts.
How would they do the multiplayer though? Use the Reach engine?
Oh yeah, typical, giving us PC gamers a dirty, consolitis-riddled port with low-res textures, terrible input lag and P2P servers. I remember how we used to play Halo when it was a TRUE PC game... Wait, it never was? Oh well nevermind then :p Seriously, when I think Halo I think of my Leaving Cert year/first year in college and my good old Xbox. This game and Burnout 3 would only leave that disc drive for each other, and sometimes a Primus DVD. I will definitely pick this up if it comes out on PC. Heck, I'll buy it on 360 too for the 4-player splitscreen. God I miss 4-player splitscreen...
I'd buy it.
