Matt Soell on Halo

In a post to the forums at halo.bungie.org, Matt Soell, community guy and keeper of the Bungie Way, made it quite clear that EBWorld.com's move to cancel pre-orders for Mac and PC versions of Halo is not indicative of a change at Microsoft/Bungie in terms of Halo. As the Mac gaming world breathes a collective sigh of relief, read Matt's post as quoted below:
First off: it's a load of bollocks. There WILL be a Mac/PC Halo. As IMG never trusts the word of retailers, who are literally the last link in the supply chain, we never had a doubt. Are Mac gamers still looking forward to this long-promised yet still ephemeral title from Bungie (and Microsoft?) Be sure to voice your opinion in our forums.
As to why EB pulled it off their site: maybe they figured out that taking preorders so far in advance would only increase the number of irate "Where the hell is it?" calls to their phone centers. I can't speak for them or the motives for their actions. But I can tell you it's not a result of anything we or Microsoft told them. Nameless "higher-ups," my arse.
It just ain't true, folks. Don't believe it.
