Videh sada članak na netu pa se setih toga
Mislim da ovde niko ne zna da je Bungie bio isključivo Mac developer do 2000 godine.
1999 su objavili Halo Combat Evolved koji je trebao da izađe isključivo za Mac i PC računare početkom 2000 godine. Ono šta je igra pokazivala tada je bilo mindblowing, a rečeno je da je sve renderovano u real time-u u OpenGL-u na Mac računaru. Igra je trebala da bude third person action adventure
I onda je MS uskočio sa tonom novca, otkupio Bungie i naravno sve njihove assete, development team i ostale gluposti. 2000 je najavljen Halo kao FPS i exkluziva za novu MS-ovu konzolu Xbox.
Od tada je sve istorija
Kratak video koji se pojavio danas kako je originalna Halo igra izgledala.
Šta mislite, da li bi Halo doživeo planetarnu popularnost da je izašao kao Mac i PC exkluziva?
In July 1999 at the Macworld conference in New York, Steve Jobs, then the interim CEO of Apple Computer, announced Halo: Combat Evolved. The game, Jobs said, would be released simultaneously on Mac and Windows PC early in the following year.
Jobs then introduced Jason Jones, co-founder of developer Bungie, who told the crowd, “Everything you’re about to see is being rendered in real time on a Macintosh, using OpenGL.” IGN reported at the time that Halo was a “third-person action/adventure title.”
Here’s the three-minute montage of [I]Halo that Jones showed, as posted on YouTube today by Marty O’Donnell, the composer of the game’s famous orchestral score.[/I]
[I]Of course, [I]Halo took a major departure from that point. Microsoft announced in June 2000 that it had bought Bungie, which had spent much of the 1990s focused on developing games on Mac. Bungie then turned [I]Halo into a first-person shooter, and it was released exclusively on Xbox in November 2001 as the console’s marquee launch title. Gearbox Software’s PC port of the Xbox version did not arrive until September 2003, and Westlake Interactive brought the game to Mac in December 2003. Bungie split off from Microsoft in late 2007, becoming an independent studio once again.[/I][/I][/I]
