Uh-huh. They love us so much that they haven't worked on the platform since Myth II back in 1998 as far as I know (Oni was Bungie West, not the main studio, and neither the Halo nor Halo 2 ports were handled by Bungie.). I mean, I really have not been that excited about them doing an MMO so it's not the end of the world for me not being able to play it on my chosen platform, but I like it when people don't lie about supporting PC gaming.
The dominant theory at the time was that the Microsoft purchase agreement included that Bungie only work on the then-new X-box. Why they're sticking with this idea now that they're not part of Microsoft anymore is boggling.
Ahhhh, this brings back some pre-Halo 1 release, but post Halo 1 buzz memories. And they are are not good memories.
Was this interview conducted by the Onion?
It probably has something to do with the fact they are releasing on Playstation 3 and 4...
I know these resentful, bitter memories. Even now myth is tainted by the memory if the halo trailer that came on the total codex...
Maybe they are aiming to make a 900p 30FPS 30FOV and that would look bad in a glorious PC.
I'm sure it has nothing to do with the massive advantage mouse and keyboard control would give PC players in a cross-platform shooter.
Yeah, that's probably the reason, but I feel like the obvious solution is to make a PC-only world that's distinct from the console one. I'm not sure why that would be a problem.
Wouldn't be interested anyway, but this isn't surprising given Bungie's earlier comments on keyboard and mouse\controller.
still don't know why they are wasting time whit xbox360 and playstation 3 for a "next gen" game... when they could have just focus on the new console and the pc (Special since ps4 is pretty close to a pc, coding wise)
