When did they issue a statement to that effect?

Bungie's been pretty up-front about that. Matt Soell has said it won't come for the PC several times before he left Bungie for greener pastures. They might change their minds and have someone else do the development, but we'd have to see about that one. Microsoft may decide it wants to port it, and hand it off to someone (hopefully Gearbox, who at this point has experience w/porting Halo). I hope it does make it; I'd love to not have to buy an Xbox.

Damn, that *really* sucks for me because I refuse to buy an xbox yet I loved the first game. It was the best singe player FPS for me in years. Unreal 2's graphics were better but Halo had a better story and ofcourse vehicles.

I even read the damn books! Looks like I'm screwed then, barring a miracle.

Oh well, I guess I can just read the book after the game comes out and hopefully it'll be reasonable like the first one was (FoR).

Damn MS and their marketing trix. There is obviously a market for a port when the first game was on the top 10 list for a while.

Of course on TV not much can be done(cept with HDTV, but i think they will be pushing it running H2 fine on xbox as is).

On a(my) monitor resolution matters alot.. i would rather play a game with 1280x960 with no aa than 800x600 with 4xAA, the jaggies aren't the only problem.. more resolution means more detail in any language. And personally(as i said on my monitor) i try to avoid anything below 1152x864.. maybe its just because it's my desktop resolution, but i really notice a scanline effect in any res below this.

Anyway.. a distant object is made up of say, 50pixels at a distance, at twice the res, it's made up of 100pixels, this is where higher res really starts meaning more than just reduced jaggies. It's all about detail.. i'm sure you know this.. but anyway.
So true

All console games looks like **** and this do to...When i first saw Halo in a store for the Xbox I started laugthing out loud the ****ing game looks no better the a 5 year old Pc game so ugly ****ty textures and 2 polygons heheh...

Halo 2 looks even worse mayby would impressed my 10 years ago but now hehe who are they kidding...But the MORONS who will game it heh must be really retarded ****s!!!

Can someone explain to me how the XBOX was able to render a 1600x1200 image and also apply AA? That image is just a press render...if anyone thinks the game will look that good on a TV they are kidding themselves. I am not saying it will look crappy but that pic is misleading.

EDIT: woops...didn't see this has already been discussed...move on nothing to see here
