Not only is Microsoft not releasing Halo 3 for PC anytime in the reasonable future they are trying to strong-arm us into buying Windows Vista so that we can play Halo 2 (which is ridiculously overdue). I hate what they did to SUN and open office, I hate their business practices in general, but messing with my gaming really pisses me off.
I played Halo at CPL and for 2 seasons in CAL....one of the best times I ever had in any shooter league or tournament. Aside from the idiot at CPL that walked up and told us we weren't live in a live match and caused us to loose it was great.
So the word is buy Vista or you can't play Halo 2 and Halo 3 is a dream at this point for PC at all. KISS MY ****! I use Vista on my work PC and there is no way in hell that I am upgrading my gaming rig to an OS that flat out doesn't work properly. Thats why they need to drive Vista sales.....it ain't selling cause it don't work.
Bottom Line: If the choices are upgrade to Vista or play what could potentially be one of the best deathmatch style PC shooters of all time on a console then I choose neither. If those are my choices I choose not to play...there are plenty of other games to buy. There's a link below to my full article:
