We're talking about Halo 3, not 2. Halo 3 won't be out on PC for another 2 years probably. As for 2, the Halo multiplayer has completely died since the release of Halo 2. The only people there are people with low speed internet connections (read massive lag) and the worst noobs you've ever seen. So Halo 2 is doing alright for Vista, or people just stopped playing Halo in protest.
I don't have Vista yet. No plans to change that anytime soon, either...so there you go.
I did play Halo 2 a few years back. Had a connection with a dev over there and actually got the game and onto the servers two days early. Talk about fun. Got to learn the MP maps and look at the scenery instead of getting shot.
My roommate just called me from the launch asking for answers to the trivia game they are having there, sadly I knew all but two without having to look them up. Those two, if you're interested were how many different types of Elites are there in Halo 2 (11 or 12 my thought was 11) and how many multiplayer maps are there in Halo 2. Real easy trivia though.
I just came back from Walmart with my copy of Halo 3. It only took 15 minutes to buy the game and I was out of there at 12:15. The Gamestop next door had a huge line of people and it looked like they were going to be there for a while.
Oh well, I'm headed to my local Gamstop in about an hour. Line or not, I'm prepaid and not getting the Cat Helmet edition, so I'm not worried. The Halo 2 midnight launch was pretty entertaining, so I imagine this one will be as well.
