yeah but one day you might buy a game ..get it home .. install it and realize that it looks like crap and plays like crap because you need to upgrade some hardware part ... that will never happen on a console..

I agree. To get HALO2 to run on an XBOX with full graphics settings, it'll cost you £80/$160, whereas on a PC, to get it running with full settings, it'll cost you £1000

But on the brightside, there are so many more games for PC than consoles.

Well (to be honest) it looked like ass on BOTH systems

I prefer the PC for gaming anyway. There's nothing you can't do with a console that you cannot do with a PC. You also cannot upgrade a console's hardware specs.
PC FTW!

why so u can cheat ?

Now give us it on PC VERY QUICKLY please. Instead of having to wait how-many years for it, it would be nice to have it available on the PC while it's still at least slightly interesting (IE, you haven't heard the plot from every single person you know who has an Xbox).

It would help if there wasn't already a plethora of FPS's on the PC that far outrank Halo in terms of plot and gameplay.

it goes to show how committed they are to the part that says "XBOX 360 EXCLUSIVE"

If you didn't care for it then you never would have read it.

If you actually hate the Halo games then why waste your time reading articles about it only to comment with "meh "?

Doesn't make much sense does it? Looks pretty immature to me.
