No PC Halo 4 Because It's "Designed Specifically for Xbox 360"

The PA Report has confirmation from Microsoft Game Studios that Halo 4 is not coming to the PC, which isn't too surprising considering Halo 3 was never ported to the PC either. What's a little odd is the explanation, as a spokesperson tells them: "Halo 4 was designed specifically for Xbox 360, and while we’re always exploring new ways to expand the franchise and share the Halo experience with as many fans as possible, we do not currently have any plans to port Halo 4 to PC."

Think of it this way Prez... Are there any games that you've played that you think would be greatly improved by replacing it's own system with regenerating health?

I don't think of health systems at all; they are invisible to me until people bring them up. Despite its obvious limitations due to being developed to run on inferior hardware, I thought Halo was a fantastic experience without really considering the health system at all, at least at first. I care about the gameplay and immersion, and really don't pay attention to things like save systems and health systems unless they become a detriment to my enjoyment. Later on I considered it thoroughtly when people kept bringing it up, but that only served to make me admire Halo more.

Since I've already lost my PC gamer cred anyway for daring to speak blasphemously by liking regenerating health systems, I guess I have nothing to lose by saying that I found the regenerating shields/medpack health system of Halo to be FAR superior to any FPS health system previous to it. I can't help that everyone else seems to think of it as the end of gaming as we know it; not only do I not dislike it, I actually prefer it. So cross me off your list of people to take game recommendations from I guess and add me to the list of people helping add to the downfall of gaming. All I know is that I am enjoying be a gamer immensely these days; everything else just fades into the background.
