Well I kick myself for believing games for windows that they said it was going to be released in June. Oh well at least it was close. I'm pumped, with my pc coming (hopely) on Monday.

No, your right. The old FAQ said that. There have just been a few rumours about new maps, but you are right. The FAQ says no new maps. As for the new releases, I would think that they would be released with the ones for 360, but i''m not sure. Lets face it, even if they aren't, some-one from the community will make them.

EDIT: Another post jump. Agh. These are really starting to annoy me...

Yeah. Bear in mind it has been 2 1/2 years in the making. At this rate I make it H3PC in 2010. They have improved the whole game though, adding destructable scenery and a ragdoll pyhsics death (I don't know if they had this in Xbox) and improving the textures. It should be good though. There are also new maps that were made specially for H2V. So the game has been significantly improved, other than the exclusion of Co-op. Hopefully the netcode will be better on H2V. I hope it is more vecitile than the halo PC one. [quote=343guiltymc]Well I kick myself for believing games for windows that they said it was going to be released in June. Oh well at least it was close. I'm pumped, with my pc coming (hopely) on Monday. A lot of release dates flew around before-hand and no-one knew which was actually true. People marketing the game for pre-ordering and giving release dates for that was part of the problem

Halo 2 vista will not support any new maps or weapons from what I've seen, but it will have the halo 2 map pack bundled with it. I'm not sure about the new halo 2 map pack for the 360. And oh yeah there are some destroyable scenery in halo 2 xbox, not sure about ragdoll physics. Maybe the game will only have those if we buy a physics card (many games don't even need those).

I think they will have ragdoll physics its to funny to leave out. plus nearly all new FPS games have them so it would kinda give the game a cheaper feel if it didn't have them.

It does. If you watch some of the gameplay videos, you can see the ragdoll working. here are some links: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2u0I8TLUElo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=afBT72T8AHE
