For those of you looking for another reason to upgrade (or not to upgrade) to Vista, here is the latest from Microsoft

Halo 2, the sequel to the very popular Halo video game, will only be playable on the upcoming Microsoft Vista operating system for the PC platform. Bungie Studios, developer of the Halo video games, claims that the move to make the game Vista-only isn't to force people to purchase the new operating system, though the official Bungie explanation as to why seems to leave something desired.

As Bungie Studios and Microsoft are dedicated to delivering a top quality translation of Halo 2 for the PC, their efforts require the use of the best available technological platform for Windows games. Windows Vista will help bring clarity to our customers and help them get more out of their personal computing experience, allowing them to focus on what matters most to them.

The release date for Halo 2 has not been publicly announced, although material from Microsoft suggests the release date for the Microsoft Vista operating system is December 1st, 2006. The PR from Bungie seems to indicate that Halo 2 Vista won't have anything significantly more interesting than Halo 2 XBOX, except the addition of a map editor.

Talk about a missed opportunity. They have had all this time to make a proper Halo 2 and they haven't. The difference between Bungie and TN is quite big, ya?

Correct. TN takes time and patience to polish their games, and takes alot of it. Not saying that Bungie doesn't, but they could do it a little more. A little extra time can sometimes mean the difference between a good game and a piece of crap which nobody plays.
