Ikari Warriors is also an SNK game and it's on the list. Maybe SNK will put their classic titles on the platform. I... I need this.

Super House of Dead Ninjas who?
Fez Fish has been hinting at a PC version for a bit
LucasArts Test App it's a test app, what are ya gonna do?
Fast and Furious 6 lol
Lococycle maybe, since Ubisoft own RedLynx and they're doing a PC version of Trial Evo
Yogventures! greenlit
Hardware presumably Steambox stuff
Hardware (Demo) presumably Steambox stuff
Dyad maybe? haven't heard anything from his camp of the PC version
Cut the Rope would make sense, since there already is a PC version
Shadow Warrior Complete GOG version already exists
Hardware (VIP) presumably Steambox stuff
Hardware (Internal) definitely Steambox stuff
THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIII bwahahaha
Retro/Grade see also Dyad
Resident Evil: Revelations PC version already confirmed
THE KING OF FIGHTERS 2002 UNLIMITED MATCH bwahahahaha
THE KING OF FIGHTERS '98 ULTIMATE MATCH bwahahahahahahahahahahaha
Quantum Conundrum 2 this is new
Halo 3 bwahahahahahahahahahahahaHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Halo 2 more plausable, but a bit LTTP unless it's a new Steamworks version
Halo: Combat Evolved might actually happen
The Witness sure, it's a PC exclusive, isn't it?
Angry Birds Space PC version already exists
Angry Birds Seasons PC version exists AFAIK
Second Life Steam version already confirmed

Aside from a few entries and a couple of PSN indie games which would be the first time a PC version has been mooted (and Quantum Conundrum 2), there isn't anything I'd jump around saying "this list is blatant bollocks".

Not that I can remember of.
But this time is... far more strange than usual. There are a lot of unannounced titles showing up at the same time, so I'm going to be a bit wary until we get some confirmation.

Also surprised with Quantum Conundrum 2. But that ending was a cliffhanger and the DLC didn't continue the story, so it's possible. Halo would be a surprise.

Just to follow up on this--Microsoft's strategy for Steam and W8 are different. W8's app market is more directly comparable to the iOS App Market. It, so far, is not an avenue to sell full price full scale games. They've recently published PC ports of most of their first party XBLA games on Steam, versus on W8. Moreover, they've also been releasing more stuff on iOS, and with Wordament now they actually have a title on iOS that gives XBL achievements. They've also started to wind down GFWL, and some of the few remaining third party publishing partners have moved on to Steam. They've also back-patched games (AoE:O was the first) from GFWL to Steam, removing GFWL components.

So while I remain weirded out by the Halo stuff in this thread, I don't think MS' other ventures necessarily kibosh the viability of MS projects appearing on Steam.

Halo (and most 'real' games) wouldn't pass certification on the Windows 8 appstores requirements list.

This is probably one of those times.

Can you even buy Halo 3 new at retail stores anymore? I remember a couple months ago when I picked up Resonance of Fate brand new I saw ODST and Reach. So thinking about it it would make sense to take the game that you dont make money anymore on and dump it on that other platform you pretend to give two shits about.

That's the problem I have with the "community pages for games not on Steam" argument. Why specifically Halo 3, of all games? Seems completely out of left field.

The only arguments I can think of besides "they intend to release a PC/Steam port" would be:

- Steam allowing community pages for non-Steam games -- but why would they pre-create some of these pages rather than, you know, actually doing it in a community-driven way? And why would some of this stuff in specific have pages rather than prominent non-Steam PC games like Battlefield 3 or WOW or whatever?

- Microsoft integrating Steam technology into a platform that can run Halo 3.

- Steam is hacked

- Steam is running a very elaborate prank using other people's IP

Of those, I only take the first as a serious alternative.

Zero Point Zero Percent chance that the Halo games are coming to Steam.


Were talking about MS here. If something will sell on their consoles they will not put it on PC. They now see PC gaming as the competition. They even pay money to keep 3rd party games off of PC.

You know, if the new Xbox runs a form of windows.. is it possible (although not probable) for it to have Steam?

Windows 8-only implies it is sold through the microsoft store and uses those APIs aka not steam.

Unless microsoft does some silly stuff which would be cracked very easily.

If I understand it correctly;

To be a proper Windows 8 App Store app you need to support a variety of things, including that, that basically preclude any pre-Windows 8 game from being listed and make the target for W8 games basically mobile-type stuff.

non-W8 Apps can get a listing on the store as an external app, but then you lose all the W8 features like patching, payment processingm, etc, so you'd still need an external architecture for that stuff, right?

That seems a rather... interesting requirement. I see where they're coming from with it, but it seems like in the long run it would do more harm than good regarding what they can put on it. Unless they truly don't see that storefront as an avenue that would ever sell certain types of products.

Huh...

1) Tons and tons of publishers have had stuff leaked through the Steam registry, so this "No one would be dumb enough to have this happen" argument is bad.

2) The way this stuff leaked is different than any previous leak; previously if you added a game to Steam, you would list it as ValveTestApp if you wanted to avoid it leaking in this way. These games are all added as ValveTestApp. The reason we have the titles is because Steam now has community hubs, and the community hubs were not marked as ValveTestApp, so by linking the registry/database ID to the community hub ID, we could extract the product names.

3) MS is the leakiest publisher/platform owner on earth; they leaked their whole E3 lineup last year through a webpage glitch. They leaked Halo Reach a day or two in advance the year before that. They've leaked stuff through focus group mail. They've leaked stuff through bad Xbox.com postings, including most upcoming XBLA games getting listings and box arts before official announcement. Games leak all the time through premature achievement list postings, and through ParterNet listings. Are you really saying they run a tight enough ship to avoid inadvertent disclosures?

The PR dimension of this as an unintended announcement has absolutely no connection to whether or not these are real things.

Agreed for the most part.

Halo 3 and KOFXIII are the only really surprising ones on that list.
Everything else was either already confirmed or suggested anyway.

And would Halo 3 really be that strange? The game is "old" now and MS could still make some easy money by throwing it on Steam.

This is probably legit.

More weird that 3 KOF games would get a port to Steam out of nowhere. Fighting games and Steam haven't traditionally had a great overlap. Not that the game itself is weird. I know you <3 SNK :p

this doesn't mean they can't make work only in windows 8 though, like Halo 2 vista.
