In the hours remaining to see if Apple can wow us at Quicktime Live... let's take a moment and watch this quicktime movie of Bungie's Halo - presumably run on an X-Box:

Made on a Mac with iMovie... ah - so it might not win at Sundance... but it's was edited together very well, and is pretty damn entertaining... you have to see it to understand.

Halo is ready for mac since 1 and a half year, as we all know, but ---ahhh forget the name----the company of billl aehhhahh?---- dont remeber yet, but they bought halo for the x box therefore macuser will probably never see this game on their osx mashines...Sniff

Translation from broken english:

"Halo has been ready for the Mac for over a year and a half, but Microsoft (a name I wish I could forget) bought Bungie, and therefore Halo, and decided an XBox-first release would be best, to the regret of many Mac users. We will probably never see the long-completed Mac version released *sniff*"

Yes, HALO is coming for the PC as well as the Mac. This has been confirmed repeatedly by Microsoft. (And yes, development of HALO began on the Mac, shifting to PC when Bungie was acquired by MS.)

Should be a fine OS X game. No release date/estimate that I've heard.

I'm just wondering what the system requirements will be...

Yes, I'm aware it's running on X-Box with a modified 733MHz P3 with nVidia chipset et. al. But, let's face it that's dedicated hw. What will the requirements be for a general purpose system...

What I'm really trying to ask is will it work on the new iMac with acceptable frame rates...

Blakespot is right as usual >:|

LOL.

Well, basically, they wanted it as an x-box exclusive for a while to generate sales, which it did. They are coming out with an expansion soon for the x-box version for online play, which in turn will be the same time it comes out for PC and MAC OS X, so all three can connect via online :D

I actually hope they get this working without problems :B

Also, with the GeForce 4 out, it can look better on PC's and MACS than the X-box version :D

That's one of the coolest things I've ever seen...

Halo is so much better when someone takes the time to make a highlight reel with music.

That's very cool.

Sorry.. wish it were true, but they're not. (I can get a quote on this from a Bungie guy if you want).

With those being the spec.'s for the hexbox, any G4 tower from the QuickSilver forward should have NO problem running it. I would suspect that any G4 from the AGP model forward will be able to play the game. Of course it would run better on the newer models, or if you upgraded the video card.
