    Apoligies if this has already been discussed.

    Does anyone know if this is coming to PC?

    I don't think it has even been confirmed that it is coming yet, I could be wrong though.

    I was going to ask this yesterday. Played Halo on PC and Halo 3 on Xbox360, I have Halo 2 on xbox but never played it but it looks shocking even on the PC.

    So I want to play a good looking game on PC like Halo 3, thus too I was interested

    I didn't think they were goining to make a Halo game on the PC? I would have thought MS would keep the Halo series as an Xbox exclusive.

    I've never done it as I don't use my 360 that often but which way is it?

    you can "play pc on the 360" or "360 games on the PC" if they're connected

    Always thought this would come over but with the amount of time now passed, I can't see it...

    Loved Halo 1 multiplayer on the PC.

    Halo 3 Co-op & multiplayer were great as well, me and three friends completed legendary a couple of times.

    Yeah i was hoping too as i burned through Halo 1 & 2 on the pc recently at high res and all the settings on max. Looked pretty good. Almost suprised that they won't consider Halo 3

    Unfortunatley, MS has so many damn fingers it likes to dip them into as many pies as possible.

    They did, I bought the first one, good lolz and got my GF well and truley addicted to online FPS. Then I showed her what she was missing elsewhere.

    IMO Halo is only "omg amazing" because it brought mass market FPS to a generation of console fanboys with "online gaming". It was quite well done for what it was, but anyone who had experienced anything on PC knew different.

    As a franchise MS have hit it big with Halo Xbox fans and will continue to do so for many a year. Well done to them.

    However, on PC the games in my experience were reasonable fun but nothing outstanding/groundbreaking from what has been done already.

    Allow the snobbery.

    Halo 2 was excellent.

    And were they not terrible compared to a proper PC fps?

    I love Halo 1, 2 and 3 but it's a shame 3 will probably never make it to the PC, and all of them have carpy graphics.

    Snobbery is fair in the case of Halo. It didn't do anything that wasn't done at least 5+ years before, it's just it was on console.

    Cod4 is a console game in my eyes...

    Call of duty was originally released for PC, then ported for console.

    The game was originally based on the Quake III engine.

    I'd say it was a PC game first. Now consoles reap in on the goodness aswell.

    Oh and the realase date for COD4 was over 3 days for Xbox/PS3/PC. Basically the same time. And it's developed on PC.
