H2MT - 2013: Legacy Tech - Halo 2 PC
By Kills Alone of the H2MT Crew
Hi everybody, this is Kills Alone with your yearly Halo 2 Vista status update.
Today @ the Microsoft Redmond Campus
AKA the Red Base Bunker
When asked by Halo 2 Map Team member XHN Scrapy if it was "Possible to get a little help from 343i? with an update on Halo 2 PC????"
...a typical Microsoft Hired Goon such as this one replied; "Due to the limitations of legacy tech, we have no plans to update Halo 2 PC. Apologies for being the bearer of bad news." Blah Blah Blah, Blabbity Blah Blah.
After hyping us up that there would be some huge announcement this is what we get? Typical Microsoft. Well they can have their Next (Last) Gen, I'm pretty happy with Steam and Humble Bundles; new games for mere dollars and I don't have to pay any extra to play online.
And their excuse, that Windows 6.x (Vista) is now legacy. Windows 6.x includes Windows Vista, 7, Server 2008, and 8. I don't think they know what legacy means; it does not mean current OS's, if anything it would mean Windows XP and previous. For example, Windows 8.1 is currently at 6.3.9600. Meanwhile Windows Vista is still supported till 4/11/2017. So legacy what now?
If he was referencing G4W/G4WL/Marketplace again I have run that on all Windows since Vista. So thanks again MS for another generic and contrived answer to why you suck so hard.
