    Microsoft's latest episode of Inside Xbox is here, bringing with it the exciting news promised last week for Halo: The Master Chief Collection. After years of waiting, PC fans will be able to experience the game. Microsoft's team promises that this won't just be a "port", instead making sure the game runs as well as possible on the platform. FOV slider, ultrawide support, 4K HDR, and mouse and keyboard support were mentioned. Each game would roll out one by one in order of chronological release. Halo Reach will also be included eventually on both PC and Xbox One. Ruffian Games and Splash Damage will be assisting 343 with creating the PC version. No release date window was given.

    It also WILL be coming to Steam.

    Really, good, I hate it when companies release it a storefront other than Steam

    On Steam? Not on the Windows Store? ...Are they okay? Didn't get high or anything, right?

    I imagine on Steam you'll need to pay for it again, whereas on Windows Store you'll get it for free if you own it on Xbox One or have Gamepass. That's how they did it with Cuphead.

    The most exciting thing is that we'll most likely be getting Reach at 1080p60

    I'm gonna get it even when I know I wont be able to install it because it's gonna take +100GB of disk space and my poor SSD has less than 5GB left.

    I feel kinda bad for Xbone owners though, whenever an exclusive stop being exclusive the system loses part of its appeal until it's not worth having it anymore.
