It doesn't even use a DX10 codepath. It's fully DX9, and unless Microsoft is paying me to move over to Vista, I'm not buying Halo 2 for Vista. :thumbdwn:

hopefully someone with some skills will hack it then, i dont mind it pushing the masses into moving to vista so things get moving faster, but i cant afford a new os that does nothing for me.


now crysis.... thats a whole new ball game

I'd consider it, but definitely not for $50.

Getting a new copy of XP MCE for $108 to get the Vista Home Premium upgrade free was a pretty good deal - the price of two games.

I really meant to not install Vista for a good long while but did it last weekend out of curiosity meaning to restore a ghost image of my XP install fairly quicky.

A week later I'm still on Vista and would never go back to XP.

Optimized for the advanced gaming features in Windows Vista, "Halo 2" promises to revolutionize the first-person shooter experience for Windows gamers

Revolutionize? I'm sorry but I've been experiencing better multi-player since Doom.

Well, I for one can't wait :)

MP for Halo-PC was pretty decent and this should be a good experience IMO.

Just hope the performance is better than what Halo brought to the table.

I have is for xbox already, but I'll snag the pc version after the prive drops $30 or so.

BTW one of the Vista advanced features: You will be able to play the game right after you put the DVD in the drive. You don't have to wait for the game to install.

If microsoft was smart they would just make a stripped down gamers OS for the hardcore gamer.

You can always buy vista basic :cool:

Or, you can buy ultimate and just click on "performance" and voila.

ill get Halo2 for Vista when they package Vista with Halo2, and the package is sold at the same price as a normal copy of Halo2.

I'll get Halo 2, mainly because my Xbox version is scratched to hell. *cries* Spent a good lot of money on that Tinned edition too.

Anywho, Halo 2 supposedly uses stuff from directx 9.0L, which only comes with Vista.

I'm getting it. :) I bet you Halo 2 PC will sell like crazy for months like first Halo PC. At least it's being handled by different developer not Gearbox which they did pretty poorly IMO.

I'll probably get it when it hits the $30 mark. I never played it on Xbox and despite what people say about it I still want to make my way through the single player campaign.
