Default Halo 1 on PC

Hey guys,

Does anyone know of a legal way to get the original Halo on PC? It's like Bungie and Microsoft don't want it to exist any more...

Cheers,

Iraqiel

look for it in used game sections of any game shop, thrift stores or charity shops. I had the same issue with Warcraft III. got lucky at a thrift store.

if a publisher decides not to make new copies and sell them there is no other chance to get it. unless you get lucky finding a place that has unsold copies.

That's a solid plan, except that I was reading on fan forums that they sold the game with limited licenses - so each disc can only be registered up to five times. Pretty rough when it comes to second hand sales.

Ah, Halo 1 on PC. Good times. Especially on modded servers. Flying a warthog was pretty neat.

I've got my own copy floating around here somewhere. If only the multiplayer servers were still up, I'd probably reinstall and play it again.

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

Amazon.com has thoughtfully provided me with a copy - hopefully there are no zoning issues like there would be with a DVD from the states...
