    I've been looking all over and cannot find Halo: Combat Evolved for Mac for a good price! I'm talking $20-60, but the ones I found were hundreds. Could somebody point me in the right direction?

    Thank you.

    It's out of production, so I'm afraid you're out of luck, unless you happen to stumble across someone who doesn't know the value of the game (or is generous and doesn't care). Amazon seems to have some third-party sellers offering it from $80 or so, which is probably the best you can do these days.

    Does the Windows Key work on the Mac version? If it does, the most recent update to the game removes the disc check, so you could work something out.

    Thanks, but I'm a bit confused... I found Windows Halo: Combat Evolved for $20 or under, but I can't find Mac Halo: Combat Evolved... are the two versions different or something?

    Grr, looked some more and can't find it! Anybody else?

    As stated above, Halo: Combat Evolved is no longer in production for Mac. This makes it something of a collector's item. I've seen them go for close to $200 on eBay. Unfortunately, the keys from the PC version do not work on the Mac version.

    Well, yes, the Windows version is for Windows and the Mac version is for the Mac. MacSoft has no license to sell the Mac version anymore.

    Bootcamp it. Sadly that may the only reasonable way.

    Also check www.portingteam.com to see if anyone has developed a cider port for it.

    Or you post in a Mac forum and hope someone has a copy they'd be willing to part with.

    PM sent.

    I would. Your not the only one looking for the game. Best place to look is on Ebay. You might get lucky.

    About Halo, does anyone still play online?...

    Yes, there are still plenty of people playing Halo online.
    You can easily get Halo for Mac within your reasonable price range. You just need to know where to look!

    (I'm actually looking to unload my copy of the Mac Universal Binary; take a look at my posting in the classifieds/shoot me a PM.)

    Oh no. I own a copy of the game including the universal binary, I was just wondering if there was a Mac rumors clan or servers?

    I'd just keep my eyes on the Amazon page and see if it dips during the holiday season...
