Can't see any reason to get it. I already have Halo 2.

I shall be getting it since I got Vista for free. It will be nice to mess around with the map tools. And I will be able to play online for once!

Sorry, I don't have vista so my PC can't handle the awesome power of a two year old xbox game.

I may well do, depending how well it will run on my laptop - hopefully there will be a demo.

Yes but it was highly optimised for the Xbox - running on a PC is very different. I mean, I can't run Halo PC at full spec.

I'll get it if there's an XP crack. Probably not then.

Considering it uses 'Live' I'm not 100% sure there will be. Its not a requirement for a Vista PC game to use Live but its an MS game so I suspect you will have to (although a Silver account will allow you to play online in PC game).

There will not be an XP crack.

You playing H2V on Vista:
H2V --> Vista --> DX10 --> DX9.L --> Video Card --> Monitor

You playing H2V on XP:
H2V --> XP --> DX10 --> WTFWHEREISDX10ANDWHYCANTITALKTOTHESYSTEMPROPERLY?? ? --> error

For a hacker to make an XP crack, they would need to be able to:

1. Understand DX10 and how it emulates DX9 with DX9.L.
2. Find differences between DX9.c and DX9.L.
3. Pray there aren't any monumental differences.
4. Figure a way to make DX9.L calls turn into DX9.c calls
5. Learn the Live Anywhere system
6. Find a way to bypass Live Anywhere or install it on XP
7. Find way to have Halo 2 Vista install on XP

Not gonna happen, basically.

Ditto. Besides the online community (in game) will dwindle towards the launch of Halo 3, so it would'nt be worth the investment for me.

It'll happen, but by the time it does no one will really care as they will be Halo3'ing it up.

Mere, Halo 2 Vista does not use DirectX 10.

Again, I think the biggist issue is going to be H2V using Live, which is only on Vista.
