    I wouldn't normally link a gaming news story to the BBC, but I can't find it anywhere else.

    I can see why MS might want to do this to encourage people to "upgrade" to Vista, but do any PC gamers really care about Halo 2 that much?

    All it means for me is that while I might once have tried the game out, now I won't get the chance. Oh well. :shrug:

    Smart move by M$ but it also stinks.

    Since I can see no reason why Halo 2 has to run on Vista I hope Halo 2 sells shit from the principle of it.

    One, however, can't underestimate how presses video game players are. These are the same folks that pay $300+ for a video card.

    If M$ was smart, they'd make Vista like Turbotax where if you don't activate it online, it won't work. To be fair, they should do a 2 or 3 machine license.

    I wonder would be people be oblivious to a less graphics intensive GUI that doesn't use SO MANY FUCKING RESOURCES!!

    I love how M$ is clearly in cahoots with PC makers.

    At least it helps my stocks.

    Sucks on principle.

    if you need better accessories in order to see it, it must be worth seeing.

    I could care less about an old X-Box game but it will be interesting to see what other games are going to become Vista-only. I seriously doubt Halo 2 will be the only carrot that M$ will be dangling to get people to use their DRM-ridden piece of shit.
