    If they haven't brought out one now I doubt they ever will :rolleyes:

    Same goes for the PC market as well I believe

    if you think about it, there probably would never be a demo for halo, or halo2. companies use demos as a way of promoting what they're selling. halo is already extremely popular, and it sells pretty well. i guess it's a waste of their time to let the rest of us play free halo!

    Demos are becoming increasingly important on the Mac. Check IMG's polls.

    That IMG article is a month old! Send complaints to MacSoft or Westlake Interactive, quickly!

    And they're also very useful to tell how well a game runs on your particular system. Halo is notorious for having bad performance, so I'm not surprised at how many people pirated it - I certainly wouldn't buy it without being able to try it first.
