Halo 4 for PC

Recommended Posts

Hi 343 Industries,

Are you going to make Halo 4 and/or Halo Reach for the PC?

 

 

 

I highly doubt they will, and this is just a forum, not an actual website.

Hi 343 Industries,

actually to correct the above, now that halo was sold to a combined licensing agreement between microsoft and 343, microsoft will have more control, and will probably end up coming out to the pc through microsoft as a windows vista/7 game

Possibly, but as that this is a fan forum, they are here looking for good ideas from fans and halo players, however thay may not be extremely active to reply/add posts

Then as a fan AND a potential RETURNING CONSUMER I hope 343 will not leave us PC gamers hanging as Bungie did. The PC Halo gamers bought and enjoyed Halo 1, Halo 2 and Halo Combat Evolved all on the Windows/PC platform. I think it will increase sales if the Halo series were to return to including the PC platform as those three games were ALL solid sellers for MS/Bungie. Even if the PC version is delayed several months versus the console version there would be a large fan base who would return as some of us never came back after the repeated heat sink issue with the original Xbox (which ended up costing MORE than a comparible PC at that time) and have been waiting and getting ignored on the VERY LAST part of the trilogy and then Reach by Bungie.

 

I really hope 343 is here to develop a good game for the masses and NOT to push a console promoter. I honestly don't think the market needs yet another Gears or God of War or Uncharted or any other console exclusive (none of which I have played except for the first Gear for PC back in 2007)

 

The video game market needs GOOD solid games that reaches out to INCLUDE as much consumers and not puts up yet more and more restrictions to such good games by saying "console exclusive" or high speed ethernet at all times.

Most likely Halo 4 will only be available for the xbox 360. It would be nice to have the option to play it on the pc aswell but I doubt they will release a version for the pc.

I'm not doubting that - i'm just saying that most likely they will only make it for xbox 360 as it will increase sales of the xbox 360.

At present the idea that Windows 8 will run xbox 360 games is only a RUMOR.

 

And even if that rumor is true, the so called "console less" emulator is said to be based on a client server model where the client has to have a PAID subscription to be able to do and NOT locale to your PC as stated here (dated July 2011)

Personally I have no interest in paying an online fee ON TOP of the monthly US$60 to comcast to be able to pay a disk contained game.

 

Again I just hope 343 decides to include us PC OFFLINE gamers back into the Halo franchise and not abandon us the way Bungie did for the LAST part of the trilogy.

Um PC's for gaming was like 10 friggan years ago.... man up and buy an xbox.

 

 

As I said before I and a LOT of people did and after THREE burnt out xbox at US$599.99 EACH (the infamous heat sink problems) we said --FORGET THAT WASTE!

 

yeah they corrected that with the xbox 360 but some of us have NOT forgot nor forgiven.

 

Besdies it was only in Halo 3 did management say "Oh ho we can position Halo and its fan base right at PS3 Resistence and take money away from those who only buy one console" Now that Bungie is out of the picture I hope 343 comes back to INCLUDE PC gamers who do spend a LOT of money on GOOD gamers including

 

Elder Scrolls

Assassin's Creed

Call of Duty

Crysis

Medal of Honor

Rage

Deus Ex

Portal

Bioshock and Bioshock Infinite

Devil May Cry (WAY Better on the PC than the console versions!)

Street Fighter 4 (same! PC WAY better than console version)

 

and a WHOLE HOST of PC games both specific and later console ports.

 

PC gaming dead? Only if you believe EA (PC Madden was DELIBERATELY made bad in the last two PC releases)

 

Thankfully GOOD game makers like Lionshead learned that lesson was false hence we got Fable 3 on the PC after beinga console exclusive for Fable 2. I hope 343 does the same for Halo and brings it back to the PAYING consumer base of PC Halo gamers.

I'm absolutely there. Halo 2 on XBox was never as smooth as Halo 2 for Vista. Plus, when the price went down we bought four licenses and had LAN parties at our house with several PCs on the network. Big advantage: no shared screen! We all wore headphones and couldn't even get sound cues about the other players. Like playing on Live, but so smoooooth and no lag plus just our buddies.

I don't honestly see how you can. I'm a console gamer, but PCs are the superior platform. How is someone a "BK" (such a stupid little term, by the way) for using a mouse? Is it because they have more control over how they look? That they can aim more precisely? I'm sorry, but no. A PC FPS player would dominate a console player without a doubt. Just because you take pride in being a Halo fan does not mean you're better than everyone else, Dominator. Grow up. How exactly would it ruin the legacy? Halo 1 and Halo 2 are both on the PC, so by you're logic.....THE LEGACY IS ALREADY RUINED! D: Oh teh noez!
