meh, I just find it pointless to spend another $400 on a piece of hardware that I wont use even 1/5 as much as my PC. THAT is why I don't buy consoles until they are cheap. I didn't get an xbox 'til it was about $150.
They want people to shift over to vista... well yeah that is pretty obvious. Not only do they make a lot of revenue in that situation, but they also get to shove their over-protected DRM infested OS down our throats. In the world of PC gaming, pretty much all games that I have ever seen released in the past 5 years work on windows 2000 (same with a few games i've seen that state they only run on XP..).. I don't see a problem with windows 9x not being supported anymore.. it's just plain old and not many use it.. but lets face it, just about everyone is on some sort of NT based os..
I don't find it fair in the least that people have to upgrade their OS for halo2.. it just isn't fair. you could run halo1 on windows 98se if you so damn wished.....
Halo2 will probably have a rough start on the PC... I hope it fails miserably. I really do.
