Never going to happen. Microsoft already owns 2/5 (pc & xbox in > xbox/ps/wii/pc/other) of the gaming market! And the question is pretty much disappeared from the gaming community and now there are no people asking for this since they all know it from the past halo releases since Halo 3! If we can create a petition with at least 5-10 million people signed in it, MS will take it into consideration!

Game runs on maxed out settings on HD 3000 at 1280x720 resolution and 40 fps average with x2 AA… Keep AA at x2 or if it is not smooth enough for you, disable AA altogether…

Good to know, my i7 gaming laptop is down for repair so I quickly swooped up a third generation i3 with the HD 4000. Haven't tried it yet, but I'm assuming that will work very well.

Anyone have any tips on getting it running on Windows 7 or 8.1 (I have both, doesn't matter which)? I tried the Catroot2 thing and compatibility mode, neither seem to work, I keep getting the "LIVE Gaming failed to initialize" error.

I got it to run on my windows 7 pc. Just because it says Vista only on the package doesn't mean it won't work. Just run it in compatibility mode for Vista.

Just run it in compatibility mode for vista or windows 7. Since you have windows 8 its unpredictable and very unlikely it will run.

Vista was the only system out at the time newer than XP, it was just their way of making people upgrade from XP (one of many) to make it not work on XP. There is also a patch for XP to run it. Currently runs on all systems XP and above.
