Does he have to be a fanboy just because he wants to save money on hardware he doesn't want. Come on. I'm the same way. I only want Halo from MS. The rest of the stuff they make exclusivly, I don't like. Gears Of War I almost liked. Because of John Diamagio voicing Marcus. But didn't go for it. So there's no reason for me to get the console. But have no problem not playing Halo, past Halo 1 PC.
