I keep reading all these reviews of how amazing Halo 4 apparently is, but I still can't give a toss because it restricts itself to a single platform in an era where consoles are lightyears behind PC's and PC sales are higher than ever before due to digital sales.
This comment makes no sense whatsoever. You can't come to OCN and say "still a great game stop complaining" because the majority of people don't own an XBox 360 nor are silly enough to buy one today, unless it's at some garage sale for $10. So we'll never know for ourselves whether it's a great game or not.
And yet more OCN elite commentary. The "majority" that you speak of on here , probably own a console of some sort, and if they don't own one, and have not played Halo 4 because they don't own the console, then how can they criticize something they have not yet played....? A lot of people must have garage sales, and be very silly, because they sell very well. I would also bet the majority (since we are using such lingo) of PC hard copy and digital sales don't come close to the console release of the same game.
Playing in the living room on a big tv is a different setting and environment than playing on PC. I will say that I enjoy certain games on Xbox just as much as my PC games, even if the graphics are not as good.
Your elitist commantary makes no sense. Please come back down to earth
