If the online in Halo 2 on Vista is better than the origonal Halo on the PC, then it may be a little more fun. Still, I find the series overhyped anyway and I doubt I'm going to fall into the ploy to try sell copies of Vista. I'd rather wait for the real meat of games on Vista, DX10 games such as Crysis. Now, once I do eventually get Vista, I might probably get Halo 2, but it's not going to be soley for Halo 2.
Even further, anybody going to buy into that 'Windows Live' stuff? Even if it does allow multiplayer with Xbox players, I don't think it's worth paying to do almost all of the same things I can already do now in my games for free.
For changes in this game, I think the port has some added graphic effects, but I don't know for sure. Also, is this going to be one of the first cross platform games that will work with both Xbox (360) and PC (Windows Live 'gold' only)? I wonder how much PC gamers like the Halo series compared to console players, I know I prefer Half-Life over it. I mean, look at my Avatar, I made that text illustration this past semester at college.
*edit* - Oh, I'm pretty sure it will support a controller too. I would imagine the wired Xbox 360 controller for instance for those PC gamers who apparently can't use a keyboard and mouse? Speaking of which, I think the flow of the controls for keyboard and mouse have been toned down a little bit to make it fair for controller players, kind of like in Halo (PC), I noticed the sensitivity of the mouse was slower when playing it. Good thing I've got a mouse that can change DPI on the fly, I hate moving my arm across the desk just to turn around.
