Halo 2 PC for windows Vista!!!

  • Hey yall,
     
    Have you heard the big news, bungee to produce  Halo 2 only for windows vista.  I am a bit up set about that, why not XP too?
     
     
     
    XPS 410
    Pentium C2D E6700 2.66
    2 GB @ 667mzh (2 dimms)
    Dual 80GB Raptors @ 10,000 RPM in RAID 0 (silenced)
    320GB hdd
    160GB hdd
    NVIDIA 7900GS Zalman VF-900cu
    ATI TV Wonder 650 HD
    Diamond 24-bit 7.1 surround, w/ dolby digital live
    2407 & 2001 monitors
    logitech G7 mouse, G15 keyboard

  • its because the whole DX issue halo 2 is supposed to be DX9 but the feautures it offers is mainly called DX 9.2 wich is just a load of . but also microsoft said that you only can make halo 2 for the PC if you make it vista only. What i think is microsoft knew that vista would have problems so they hope Halo 2 will boost sales

    and actually halo 2 for the PC is kinda old news, the info was released in 2005

  • It's just a cheesy ploy by Microsoft. Unless they completely overhaul the game, it's a three year old Direct X 8 game that obviously doesn't remotely require Direct X 10.

    I don't know how much traction they're going to get by trying to hold out a three year old game that most PC gamers didn't care about three years ago though.
  • well I will want to play it, so at least they will get me to buy into it.  Are you for certain they are not going to use DX 10 shaders?
