Halo 2 - Vista Only

Looks like Halo 2 gamers face Vista upgrade according to this BBC article. If true I guess it means two things:

1) A long wait for Halo 2 on the PC (Vista won't be here before the end of the year)
2) Halo 2 fans needing to upgrade from XP or XP 64-bit

Not sure if this is designed to boost Vista sales or sales of the X-Box 360. Probably the latter knowing Microsoft. What a shame that Bungie are a total tool for Microsoft now.

Hmm, interesting . . . I think this is a move for Vista. Halo is a mighty powerful franchise, it could mean a quick 2 to 3 million sales of both Halo and Vista. Good thinking Microsoft.

Apple (Steve Jobs) have never really understand the importance of games. I still think that at some point in the future games will indeed take centre stage for Apple but not for a good 5 or 6 years. When games become truly mainstream then Apple will sit up and take notice.

Did you hear about the amazing results of a video games sales survey in the states?

Only people interested in video games buy video games. Also people only tend to buy a game once.

Mind blowing stuff!
