Default Halo 2 Vista

Anyone getting it?? It came out today.

I'm, well..."acquiring" it right now. Not that I don't love the Xbox version to death, but I'm pumped to see all the custom maps that come out. If they're as good as the ones we saw for Halo 1, I'll definitely buy the game.

Good luck "acquiring" it if you want to play online.

@cracker, probably, I wouldn't doubt it.

And @ joe, I've done the same thing with plenty of games, including Halo 1, I'm sure there's a way to get it to work with Halo 2.

Unfortunately, no, it's DirectX 9. Still though, look at the difference in graphics from the Xbox version:

You might want to wait a week or so, the torrent is going very very slow because of the vast amount of leechers. It's a 1 to 9 seeder to leecher ratio right now, not very good at all. I haven't seen over 50 kB/s yet.
