    from the halo faq

    start quote

    It's important to understand two things: this decision is left to Bungie's development teams, and in Halo's case it has not been made yet. The development team has a ton of options to consider, and that’s what they’re doing right now. They may choose to concentrate on one platform, to bring the game to every platform under the sun, or something in between. As of this writing we simply don’t know what the answer will be. We cannot promise that a Windows or Mac version of Halo will ship, but we can't rule it out either. Nor is there any reason to at this point.

    chances are though that a mac version of halo will be released in due course, imo

    Damn Microsoft! If PCs have such better games than Macs, they why did they buy one of the best gaming companies for Macs when they wanted what has become one of the best video games ever made? Dah! Oh well, hopefully a Mac version will be released eventually. Is it available for PC? or just Xbox at the moment?

    damn m$

    When the hexbox was released with Halo, I was rip-shet over it. I have been waiting for Halo for the Mac for over 2 years now. Needless to say, I was rather pisssed off when m$ decided to release it for the hexbox first.

    I talked with one of the sales people at EB and was told that the peecee version would be in about 6 months (from the hexbox release). No idea about the Mac version :( . I, for one, will not be buying a console game system. I have a playstation one, that I don't use and haven't for at least a year now.

    I hope that the 6 month time frame is correct, which would put it before June. I also hope that they release the Mac version either at the same time, or before the end of this year.

    I have tried to contact Bungie, but have not been able to get a real person to ask this about.
