If you really think HL2 is going to be on shelves on 9/30, then you've got your head up your ass. Considering the game is about a billion times more anticipated than Halo PC, and it still hasn't gone gold yet -- chances are you're not getting it on 9/30.
Also, to all you little wieners that feel the need to mention why you WON'T be getting Halo PC, I think I'll mention the reasons why I will.
1: Xbox blows, and everybody who bought one is an idiot. Smart people bought Gamecubes. Although 2 years late, the fact that Halo was even ported to PC just goes to show that there's absolutely no reason to own an Xbox; everything that's worth owning on Xbox gets ported to PC, anyway. People with more patience than a 6-year-old have no problem playing a game that's sooo "passe."
2: With the exception of the following: Goldeneye 007, Perfect Dark, and the first level of Turok 2, FPSs on consoles suck (combine that with the blowing of the Xbox, and you've got an issue that, although defying all laws of physics, both blows and sucks at the same time).
3: HL2 won't be out in September. Doom 3 won't be out until early '04. Even though you pretentious asses have already played Halo, I haven't; and really, that's all that is important.
4: Just to anger you Xboxers. You wasted $350 dollars for Halo (1 Xbox in '01, + Halo = $350. Don't bother saying your Xbox libary consists of anything other than Halo, because that'll just be showing your complete lack of taste in video games), and the fact that I'm going to have more fun with it for $300 less than you paid is sure to anger you. Admit it, you're jealous of me.
5: Just checked Ebgames.com, Halo PC comes with a novel. I'm not going to read it, but that doesn't matter. Yay! Novel for me, NOTHING FOR YOU!!!
