    If a merger/takeover will result in a company having more than 25% of a market then the government usually refers the deal to the monopolies and mergers commision. That's in the UK, not too sure about the rest of Europe.

    sold themselves, which is the same as accepting a deal they couldn't refuse.

    Heh, I read the last 2 posts, and I was quite upset before I realized you were talking about Halo, and not Blizzard.

    It was win win for Bungie all the way. Before M$ Bungie was in financial trouble, M$ basically has an unlimited pit of cash for them to use. While they may have disapointed their Mac and PC loyaltists, they disapointed a couple hundred thousand at most. Halo sold more than a million copies in 4 months, while games like WC3 sell 4.5 in the first week, for bungie selling one million was great. They now have a sunstantial fan base not limited to some people who heard of some obscure series called Myth and Marathon, even older games as well.

    Who is honestly surprised about the M$ world takeover?

    Fact:
    Halo is XBox only

    My speculation:
    SC Ghost will be XBox only
    WoW will be XBox only
    Half-Life 2 will be XBox only

    (sorry about picture size, but it's an accurate representation)

    ............ if this happens.... i predict a sudden outburst of violence among PC gamers everywhere. Gamers will take down Microsoft together.

    Half-Life 1 was the best game for mods ever... Half-Life 2 would be wondrful i mods could be made for it too with the same power... m$ had better not touch vivendi.

    There are games meant for consoles and games meant for pcs. You can't interchange them, they don't work.

    Agreed. Some games just make ****ty PC games. Take Metal Gear Solid. I just couldnt see that on PC. Or Warcraft on system (and it is, which i have played), it just plain sucks!

    I'm merely talking about half life 2 and only half life 2.

    it obviously works on PC, no doubt.

    Games that require little skill, thought, and/or reasoning are usually console.

    Well, for the most part he's right.

    For a while computer games have required a higher level of thought and comprehension than console games. Although, there are those on consoles that are equally thought provoking (usually ports, mind you).
