Why do you always do this to fan projects, Nintendo?!

Oh, oops. Force of habit.

Microsoft, whhhy?!

Oh, pleassse...

 

Fan projects require fans

 

Microsoft doesn't have enough of those to shut down the amount of projects nintendo does. It's really an epedemic for Nintendo. 

Whyyyyy Microsoft , whyyyyy

Man, that burn was was crueler than mine. Someone get MS some balm.

Just FYI Halo Onlie isn’t currently available anywhere. It was shut down a long time ago and never got past beta test stage.

There are ways... Been playing it most of this afternoon while I didn't have any work going on... And had an absolute ball with it.
Seems to have more players than Halo 3 on 360 or the Master Chief Collection, so that's a win.

Either way... The game is out there now. Probably difficult for Microsoft to properly kill it now.

prob a big announcement at E3 about halo and PC coming up? just speculation, but it fits with the way they have been uniting games on the xbox and pc world so far.

 

the streaming rules a particular company has is far more atrocious.



 

I wouldn't be surprised if MS do a Valve. Valve basically brought the team behind the Half Life mod which was Counter Strike and re-released it as an official game.



Don't know why they haven't released MCC on PC yet.

Halo is but one of many games that didn't have online multiplayer from it's release but would be welcomed by many today. Street Fighter II: The World Warrior, would be one I would gladly pay a twinner for... I'm sure we all can think of others.



Feel free to check out my stream on twitch 

"While we have nothing to announce today, please know that the PC community is very important to us and top of mind as we work towards the future.”

This being MS, who have teased Halo on PC for years, which I don't believe much in. They haven't done much in terms of ramping up the Windows store to being on Steam's level, as well as being very supportive of the modding community (which they've struck out against recently).

Even if they do decide to put Halo on PC, it'll only be through the Win 10 store and it'll be restrictive as hell, as well as being sold at a higher price, despite the collection already being 4 years old.

 

If the PC community was really that important to you, you would have already taken plenty of action to prove that statement MS.

One thing that Spencer have done a good job is to bring Xbox games to PC LMAO.

Is that a bad thing? I dont understand if sarcasm or serious.

No  in fact , it's a good thing for us who don't want to buy Xbox One , but not for the people who want Xbox one  consoles sells  a lot  .

Plenty of games started life out as a mod and become full fledged games.
Dota 2, DayZ, Red Orchestra, Natural Selection... List goes on.

And I agree completely. Don't shut them down, buy them up.

Probably because it is still a mess on Xbox.

Either way you will be supporting Xbox since there games fall under the Xbox devision plus software earns more profits than hardware. 

If gamers are happy to support the Windows 10 eco system than good on them.
