Microsoft themselves have said they will never cross platform.

they tried and in all test the pc players destroyed the console users.

Don't believe me? look it up, it's there.

Damn shame this won't come out for the PC. Can you imagine given the graphics hardware out right now for the pc how much better looking Halo 4 for the PC would be compared to the Xbox 360? What a shame, what a shame...

Oh please, Microsoft. You've failed your Halo fans. Port Halo 3, ODST, Reach and Halo 4 to the PC, put the graphics up to Direct X 11 levels and give Halo the attention and graphical presentation it deserves, not on some 7 year old console that can't hold a candle to this years graphics cards.

Not doing this is about as stupid (or worse) as releasing Windows Vista, as bad as it was.

After playing a fair number of games over the last few years that have switched developers on the same IP, I don't really have much faith in it. Seems like more and more developers are riding on the name alone to make money; and it's working.

They got some professional xbox player and some average PC gamer's, The PC gamers destroyed the xbox gamer's because a mouse is more easy to control a cross-hair with rather than a joystick.

+ Pc gamers had twitch reflex's on there side.

Meh. I loved the first one and thought the second was really good, but since I've actually seen it for what it is now (essentially a cash cow) I really don't care anymore.

If they actually put titles on the PC (excluding 1 & 2 of course) it would atleast look like they're trying to make an effort. I'd also love to cross platform with the 360. I'd feed off of the tears.

'maybe even the original Halo on PC (just admit to having an Xbox, it's ok, we understand)'

What if you have both?

Not only that, but from what I've read more than once in the past, it appears lag (both input, output and general connection) is worse in consoles than it is in PC gaming.

Which ultimately means if you're pitting only console or only PC players, you'll have an even battlefield (when it comes to lag, at least), but when you mix them up, you'd actually need precognitive console players or artificial limits on PC players to even the odds. However, precogs are not that common, and artificially limiting a player will end up annoying him/pissing him off.

That being said, I'd like to see both versions out, PC and XBOX. You just need to make sure players can't mix on the battlefield.

The Xbox360 couldn't hold a candle to GPUs that were out a year before the console >.<

[citation][nom]hardcore_gamer[/nom]HALO is becoming a cashcow like COD[/citation]

At least Bungie gets to start elsewhere and hopefully make another great title.

Once Bungie left, the Halo franchise died to me. Will not pick up this game. Bungie was Halo. Any "Halo" game not designed by Bungie is just a knockoff imo.

LOL, yeah, PC vs console multiplayer would be so unbelievably lopsided that most console players would rage quit in 5 minutes or less.

You do know that most of the creative team at bungie that created halo 3 are working for 343 right? bungie are the ones that made it a cash cow by making ODST and reach, i want to play halo 4 because i want to know what happened to Spartan 117 something i've had to wait a stupidly long time to find out

I honestly did not know that. Halo 3 was by far my least favorite, so this gives me even more reason not to get 4. lol.
