    Hey, if I remember correctly, which I do, Halo wasn't originally for PC, but for Mac. And besides, the "original" HALO was more like a third person shooter/rts (first build was rts, second build was third person shooter (like ONI)), meaning that it only changed to its current form once brought to X-box.

    actually, there is only <u>1</u> new vehicle and it is only an upgrade of a current vehicle also on xbox. just because banshee and gun turret are new to multiplayer, that does not make them new

    If it was originally intended for MAC it likely would have never come out for XBOX. XBOX is a DirectX only platform and it would've been a really bad business decision for them to buy the rights for a non-directx game in late production then force them to scrap much of the coding they used on the MAC and then re-code it for DirectX. Seems like in was enough of a pain in the *** for them to update the coding from DirectX 8 to 9 (considering how long it took the game to come out on PC)

    That said, I don't know that much about the history of the game, but I do remember PC geeks being really upset that it was hijacked from PC to the XBOX and not from the MAC to the XBOX (no offense to PC geeks. I'm a PC geek too, HALO just isn't my cup of tea).

    Halo originally for MAC? What the hell? Ah well. There were rumours (from very good sources) that HALO was going onto PC ages ago, backed up by a small ingame video for PC that was released a while back.
