Our family have been religious followers of this multiplayer on the PC and my youngest son did get a 360 to play Halo 3 on. Question...is there anything on the horizon for the PC that to take Combat Evolved gameplay to higher level. Currently running Windows xp2. Would love to see Halo3 for the PC but don't know if it will happen.

Well there is Halo 2 for Windows Vista which is a pretty bad port but its still pretty much the same game it was on Xbox.

If you don't have Windows Vista there are a few patches to make the game compatible for Windows XP including multiplayer.

If Halo 3 is planned for the PC expect it no sooner than late 2008 at least.

Probably better to pick up UT3, Crysis, or ETQW IMHO. The Halo games were nothing really spectacular. If they didn't have the MS marketing muscle behind them, people would barely register their existence.

There's Halo: Custom Edition. Ability to play user-created content is ALWAYS a plus.

How much marketing did the first Halo get?

In saying 'take Combat Evolved gameplay to higher level' are you looking for any PC FPS? If thats what you mean theres a plethora of FPS's better than Halo to choose from, UT3 and Crysis set for November.

They all got a ridiculous amount, I know many people who bought the first xbox only for Halo. I disagree with the first comment though, marketing did help a lot I think, but the fact that all other console FPS's were total crap compared to Halo helped it a lot as well, plus it had the first decent online play for a console FPS.

Yup, Halo was the reason I bought an XBox. I sold it after I beat it :D

Halo was a VERY hotly anticipated game before M$ was in the picture. Marathon had a cult-like following and those gamers were chomping at the bit to play the next franchise from Bungie - they were pissed that M$ gobbled up Bungie, but remained loyal to the makers of Marathon
