Install the latest cumulative update, it fixed it for me.

Any idea on pricing for this yet? Can't imagine it'll be cheap.
$30. For the *whole* collection!

When does Halo: The Master Chief Collection release on PC?
343 Industries, the developer behind Halo: The Master Chief Collection, is currently promising the Halo: Reach PC launch "later this year." The in-house Microsoft studio remains opposed to a formal public release date, beyond its previously-outlined 2019 timeframe. However, with the newly-veiled Halo Insider Program, there will be early access opportunities.

Microsoft is preparing pre-release Xbox and PC builds for distribution via the Halo Insider Program for extensive testing. It will be your first chance to play Halo: The Master Chief Collection before launch, enrolled by registering on the Halo Waypoint site. You'll need to provide details on your Halo experience, accounts, PC hardware, and availability for consideration in tests.

After trying literally everything on the internet, nothing worked. I was almost going to install Windows again from scratch... Ultimately, while randomly browsing through my settings, I noticed that my region was blank and that it was grayed out, so I couldn't change it. I had to manually go into the registry and put in my country code. Microsoft Store magically worked afterwards...

Honestly, I have no issues with the Microsoft Store when it works. For one, Play Anywhere is something to be celebrated, rather than having to pay twice to play the same game on different platforms. Too bad it's not integrated initially, although I do think they will do it down the line. It is a step in the right direction if they do, but for PC in particular, the issue is bigger. I think we're getting too many PC game stores... First it was practically Steam only... Now we have Windows Store, UPlay, Origin, Epic Games Launcher... Our PCs are littered with game stores...

The real solution would be if GOG would get all games. But publishers are hesitant, because GOG has no DRM... You can copy the game a bunch of times and give it to your friends if you so wish. That didn't stop The Witcher 3 from selling extremely well, but apparently no publisher gets that message. GOG has steam integration... So if they can work to get integration of ALL games store accounts, even if you need to buy them at their respective stores, that would be a great thing.

I'll definitely be getting this game for PC in any case. Maybe not at launch, but I've had too much fun with Halo not to get the game. I played all the Halo games, except Halo Wars 2 and Halo 5: Guardians. I bought guardians, but never got around to it xD

I haven't really been keeping track of MCC but I stumbled across this today. Skip to 10:00 for ~45 minutes of Reach PC gameplay. The video quality isn't the best, but it gives you an idea.
The only thing that I hope they improve on without being too picky are the textures, they're quite bland.

I mean... the latest game in this collection is 7 years old. If they're pricing them individually I might pick one or two up if they sell them for next to nothing.

I don't think this should really be construed as a good guy Microsoft move, show me a simultaneous PC-Xbox release of Halo Infinite and I'll be less sceptical. Until then I assume they are just cashing in some rather old IP, given that it's guaranteed to sell moderately well with minimal cost porting the games (since they've already been ported to the Xbox One).
