Yeah, if they were going to allow community hubs, you'd figure they'd allow community hubs, as opposed to pre-creating hubs for very specific games, missing major PC games and including old games with no PC versions

Halo 3 is not coming to PC. It's been five years. There's been an RTS spinoff, an addon, a prequel, a remake of sorts and a sequel since then, none of which came to PC.

The main thing that makes Halo 1 and 2 unbelievable is that Microsoft doesn't even offer them online anywhere. Unless they're doing some new compilation.

Fez and Duke Nukem 3D don't seem that crazy.

This is pretty nuts. Knowing Valve though, even though this has now been "discovered", it could be a long time before we have any idea as to what is really going on, if anything is going on at all. Hopefully something is going on, because change is good! Or at least... change is interesting.

Unsurprising but still most welcomed.

EDIT:

Joe Danger Comp was added on Dec. 20th. So maybe they will be bringing both out.

Also, everyone knows that these registry entries are watched. If Halo 3 were coming out for Steam, or most importantly for PC at all, you better believe MS would be the one making the announcement instead of it leaking out vie the registry watchers.

Given that Microsoft has just launched their own walled-garden for Windows 8, I think it's next to impossible that they would allow something like Halo launch on a competitor's service. I'd happily be proven wrong though (Halo 3 with proper AA and 60 FPS on PC omgomgomg)

Let's just play a bit of Devil's Advocate here. Let's say Halo 3 does come to PC via Steam. I would assume that they would keep Sapien and Guerilla. Would this mean that we could have a map editor to build a base map, then have Forge to place very basic objects? That would be wonders to the creation of custom maps.

At a certain point someone realised the reality of the situation and was convinced not to leave money on the table? Perhaps the figures on how well (or not) Fable 3 did on Steam is convincing them to reevaluate?

If Dyad comes to steam I'll be conflicted. I've been wanting to play this game for awhile but it's on a console I currently don't own and I have been deliberately heavily cutting back on buying games for the steam platform for the past few months.

Those showed up when Eidos first signed with Valve, and the suspicion is that they did intend to release the games but that technical issues with the ports prevented them from doing so. There are very few, possibly no examples of games showing up in the registry since then that weren't intended for release.

I think the big need for caution in this case is that most of these games do not actually have game names in the Steam Registry, only in their community hubs, which is why I threw out the suggestion that these entries might be linked to a change to community hubs (allowing non-Steam games) versus an intended Steam release.

It is also the end of the generation, they already made tons of money in the initial years and getting a second win with Steam is no brainer. I'm banking on it that it will happen.

Halo 4 isn't on that list, it's not like they'd be moving the franchise that's active.

Doubt they're making a whole lot of money on Halo 3 these days.

KoF13 makes a lot of sense considering the arcade version is already a windows PC game. That's all Type X2 games are. It always struck me as stupid not to put out polished up versions to make money. They'd need less effort than even that crap Dark Souls port.

Yes, you will not see Halo 4 on PC anytime soon, and the spin-offs will probably never be ported. It's a good strategy, not only can you get more money from old games, but you get people hooked on a franchise so they're more likely to buy your new console for the sequels. I mean, Halo was one of the main reasons I wanted a 360 after playing the first two games on PC.

I think we should all keep our hype in check re:KoFXIII, actually.

Remember, it is already a PC game.

The arcade cab is just a PC, and you can run that version on your home PC if you look for it.

We'll be lucky if it has online at all.
