Halo 2 Only on Vista

Recommended Posts

iLogiK writes "Halo 2 will be available for PC, but only in Windows Vista. From the announcement: 'Halo 2 the game that redefined first-person combat and multiplayer action for millions of gamers worldwide, is set to explode onto PCs exclusively for Windows Vista. Halo 2 for Windows Vista will be developed by a dedicated Microsoft Game Studios team in partnership with Bungie Studios.'" That's one way to force upgrades. I thought just not releasing patches for the microsoft-worm-of-the-week would be enough ;)slashdot?g=3602

That's really kind of surprising. It seems like they would make more money by just making it compatible with any system that has Windows XP or later. The Xbox version has been out for a while so a lot of hardcore fans probably aren't going to jump through hoops just to get it on PC. The only rationale that I can think of behind this (other than the sinister forcing of upgrades) is that Vista is supposed to have some hefty system requirements so those who can support Vista would be better able to have Halo 2 look gorgeous and run smoothly.
